1) Went to RL writers group (down in OKC), chatted with editors of Heroic Fantasy Quarterly.

2) Drove home, stopped by a a couple of NW OKC bookstores (B&N and BAM) looking for a certain anthology that is supposed to be in stores now. None to be found. Meh

3) Did discover, however, that Christie and Marsh have been reclassified. About time!

4) Boldly set up a new community to accompany the [livejournal.com profile] ra_log. [livejournal.com profile] aboutmarkets will (hopefully) be a place where spec-fic writers can ask questions or make announcements about spec-fic markets. If everyone plays nice. Nothing posted yet, as I already know everything....NOT!

So today our baby the [livejournal.com profile] ra_log turns one. When we started the [livejournal.com profile] ra_log, it was done primarily as a temporary stand-in for the Rejections Log on Speculations (which had suffered an untimely death.) Over on [livejournal.com profile] julesjones's blog, the question came up "Couldn't we just start something similar on LJ?"...And I went over and started setting one up.

It's a year later, and I don't think Speculations is coming back. Even if it did, I have to say that there seem to be a couple of advantages that the LJ version has over the Forum version. A)We can COMMENT on other's responses and B)We can use the TAGS to look for all responses on a specific publication. These two things alone suggest to me that we should keep it going, even if Speculations does make a comeback.

Some people have suggested starting similar "I'm missing Speculations" communities. The one that most quickly comes to mind is the "Shameless Self Promotion" forum.

Any thoughts on that, All you Olde Rumor Mill people?
