Write, Right?

It's a rainy, overcast, coldish day here on the Spacecoast. Plus I'm in a mood. Makes it perfect for writing, don't you think? I mean, it's not like there's sun to be out in. And I have writing to do, tons of it. So today is one of those days where I'm giving myself a firm talking to about getting some pages done.
In other news, RWA claims its theme is "unity" this year. Huh. Really? So why is one of my critique partners, who is PAN and with her sales could qualify for PAN many times over, being told that her books are not eligible for the RITA? They were good enough last year. How is that a step towards unity? Sounds like more of the "us vs them" mentality. What a fat load of rubish.

Watch your RWR for a letter to the editor from yours truly in the near future. Don't mess with my friends. You'll get my Sicilian up. And you wouldn't like me when my Sicilian is up.

That is all. Go write before I start breaking knee caps.

  1. I hear ya on that unity thing...I'm epubbed - so I'm not really a pubbed author in the eyes of RWA. Good luck writing today - it's really cold here and I'd love to stay home and write! :)

  2. Good luck with your writing today. I don't know what is going on with RWA. I see your new poll. I love being a member for all I've learned and the friends I'm made but the strict rules and the division is just awful and turns so many off.

  7. It's total BS. I can't even get started or I'll get worked up. When I saw the cover of this months RWR I laughed. *grrr* I'll be looking for your letter ;)

  8. How can someone be PAN but not able to enter the Rita?
    So you're Sicilian? Very interesting. Hope you got writing done.

  11. Hope you got lots of writing done. A reason to stay inside and keep warm maybe? It's BAD cold out.

  12. Remind me to stay on your good side:o) I'm playing catch up today so you'll see a few posts from me. I agree with the rubbish part. PAN and NO RITA? How dare they?! I'd love to be PAN qualified, but RWA's actions certainly doesn't motivate me! Happy writing!
