SFWA goal achieved! No, I didn’t finish Wizard’s Wrath yet. When I do, you’ll be the first to know. But I’m getting there! I made progress every day over the holiday weekend.

I’m currently transitioning to the night shift at work, which I hope will free up more time to write because it will give me more days off and help me increase my productivity. But for the time being, my brain is never quite sure when I’m supposed to be awake.

However, this past week, I was notified I’ve accomplished something I’ve wanted to accomplish since I was in high school: I am now an active member of the SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America). This is a big thing for me. It says that I have arrived as a professional writer. I wish my father was still around to see it. He would have been proud of me. It was his endless supply of science fiction paperbacks that got me started on my love of speculative fiction so many years ago.

So, tonight, I’m tired, and I’m not feeling terribly inspired as I go back through my work in progress for another round of editing. But I’m doing it as a professional! And somehow, that is inspiring all on its own.
