Doing my bit for the future SF authors of America
Did I mention I’m going to Arisia?
Took me by surprise, too, as I hadn’t originally planned to. But I was asked to serve as one of the judges in Arisia’s student writing contest, and voila! Now I’m going.
So I have my head buried in these manuscripts, trying to rank them. I’m almost done. There aren’t that many, so it’s not too onerous, but it is an interesting exercise, all around.
I am much encouraged that these young writers are out there, dreaming their dreams and daring to write them down…
