The Clarion Call

I have been accepted to the Clarion West Writers' Workshop. This is a six-week workshop that focusses uniquely on the writing of speculative fiction. It is known as a real crucible for the pressure and stress, as well as for forging writers in the blazing furnace of both peer and professional criticism (to continue the metaphor).

It is both a wonderful and sobering event, as it means that somewhere some objective Reader of Texts perused my story and said, "Maybe this one." While it hardly guarantees success, it is a phenomenal ego boost.

I have been unexpectedly deified.

You too can take the test here:

Grammar God!

You are a GRAMMAR GOD!

If your mission in life is not already to
preserve the English tongue, it should be.
Congratulations and thank you!

How grammatically sound are you?
