James Palmer's Journal - Day

Monday, June 20, 2005

8:49AM - Just look what I started

I love opening a good can of worms as much as the next fanboy, and am glad to see some lively debate come from it, i.e. my previous post about James Gunn's attempts to revitalize SF. Head on over to sclerotic_rings hangout for more of the debate and to chime in. You can also put your two cents worth in here. I might even get an article out of this...

On Writing

In other news, I finally got my payment for the articles I did for Address Macon, and just in time to buy new tires for mine and the miss's vehicles. This is the most money I have received for my writing since I did a whole slew of stuff for the late, unlamented SciFiNow.com, when Paul T. Riddell was manning the helm. Actually, it's the most money I've made in one shot for any writing, period, which is kind of sad. But I am hopeful that this is just the tip of the iceberg; I can do stuff for Imedia on a continuing basis, and because of that work, I might have another opportunity or two. We'll see what happens. So am I right in not relying on science fiction writing to make a living? Yes, I think so.
