I see that SFWA is going to simulcast the Nebula Awards banquet. That should be interesting. May 15…hum…checking calendar.
I have always been an awards kind of guy. Yes, the weird voting patterns and the in-fighting that surrounds them can be a bit, er, flummoxing, but I generally find my way around that aspect of things. And, yeah, sometimes I look at an award and think injustice has been done. But sue, me–I like success stories. I like seeing what can be achieved when people put their minds to it.
I also admit I’m a bit intrigued about SFWA as a whole these days. I let my membership lapse some time back, and have been debating stepping back into the organization. Not sure I’ll have time to tie into the simulcast, but it does have me thinking, and thinking is good, eh?
Most of the time, anyway.
Progress update: Ok, so enough blather…what have I done today?
Well, not much. I had a early morning call for the real job with team mates in India that took up most of my time. I did manage a scan through of about ten pages of novel manuscript that I see needs major rewriting. It’s a sub-story of a couple fighter pilots that seems to just sit on the page and not do as much as I need it to do.
I’ll plan to do some thinking about that at lunch.
