Achievement Unlocked! I’m a member of SFWA!

That’s right. I’m in. A full member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. It’s not some secret cabal. You don’t get to learn a secret handshake that gets you published more. It’s just an organization formed to help and protect writers (and artists) in the genre. It is also a bit of a badge of achievement. You can be an associate member, but to be a full member requires a certain amount of sales and publications. Unfortunately, each time I closed in the that goal, SFWA moved the posts back. Recently, SFWA retooled their full membership requirements to recognize modern times. Not all sales are ‘professional’ sales or ‘traditional.’ Self-publishing, once considered taboo, is quickly becoming the norm. Enough sales below the professional rate can multiply to be quite sizable. The rules have changed to reflect this and opened the door for me an a lot of other writers. So, for that I thank the committee for making a small dream come true.
