No More, Make It Stop!

I've just been over reading posts on the Clarion West forum, where some familiar names are joshing around and wringing their hands in a nervous sweat. See, I was over there because Clarion San Diego, or East, as some folks are calling it, doesn't have a forum for applicants. Hence, a thread was started over on the CW form, and lot of folks there applied to CSD and CW, so it's relevant for them. All manner of second-guessing and over-analyzing going on. I realized that I can't take it, and I'm going to go completely crazy if I keep reading all that stuff.

I'll just hold my breath for the next 36 hours or so. That should be easier than trying to avoid the blogs and forums. Ha.

It's all good times on the CW forums, eh? :)

Best of luck!

Indeed. You and Randy are hoot-worthy, keeping it light. I just can't take all the second-guessing. I actually checked my application to be sure my phone number was right and so on. Not knowing when other people are being contacted is very frustrating. I am so anxious that it's a major effort to focus on anything else! Thanks for dropping by, and for the good wishes!

Damn, I just looked at the forum again. Aargh! No more.

Why doesn't Clarion SD have a cool forum like that?

:) Maybe they're just all serious and stuff.

Of course, it may just be an issue of general suckiness of websites... I did a Hugo roundup post on my site today. You wouldn't believe how many awful sites I looked at: publishers, editors, and AUTHORS!

Maybe I should ditch this writing thing and focus on making websites for people in publishing.

Then again, Randy might have the right idea with his robot armies.
