Some years ago I made a list of goals for my writing. One was being mentioned in Locus magazine. Got my name and picture in the group shot for the 2004 Clarion workshop. And now, another mention and article along with the rest of the Volume XXIV class of Writers of the Future.
Of course, you should jump over to LocusOnline and get a subscription to Locus magazine, shouldn't you? (grin)
