I had a really fun week spending time with old friends and meeting a lot of young new writers. They all seemed very dedicated and very young and talented, which honestly makes me feel very positive for the future of writing in science fiction and fantasy.
The event went off without a hitch, the food was amazing, and the gathering after I got out of my tux around the pool was a ton of fun.
So if you are not submitting stories to this contest every quarter, you are missing the best thing you can do for your writing career. I was amazed at what some of these writers had gone through to be on that stage. One said he had started submitting back in the 1990s. That’s dedication.
So I will be back to my office by tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon. So if I have missed something, let me know then.
