In the ever-evolving story of my quest to SFWA Pro status, I got hit with a whammy the other day, something that fittingly belongs in fiction. Before the third act, culminating in triumph for the protagonist, there’s always a setback, right? Here’s mine.
The SFWA doesn’t recognize Penumbra as a pro site, at least not yet. What that means is instead of having one more sale to make pro, I have to make two more sales at pro level.
Meanwhile, Internet for me has been reduced/downgraded because of outages back in the States as a result of the storms on the East Coast. It’s made communication back home a little tricky, hence a lack of updates among other things.
I swear, I wasn’t doing this to ramp up the tension or to make the goal that much more fulfilling. Screw you guys and your satisfying reading experience… I want my credit already!
