Amazingly, applications for Taos Toolbox are still open! This means you can still have that brilliant writing career you've been dreaming about!
All you have to do is go to the Taos Toolbox web site, and follow the instructions thereon! If you're accepted, you'll join me and Nancy Kress and Carrie Vaughn in Taos next summer for an intense two-week master class in the writing of science fiction and fantasy--- and then, on to literary glory and immortality!
I'm so excited about it, I can't stop using exclamation points!!!
Incidentally, far too much of the response has fallen into one of two categories.
#1. "It's so expensive!"
(Whiner. Sniveler. Firstly, it's not expensive as workshops go. You even get catering! Secondly, this is literary immortality we're talking about--- it's priceless! And thirdly, if money's a problem, just take out a second mortgage! It's easy! Interest rates are at an all-time low!)
#2. "What's Walter's problems with adverbs, anyway?"
(Do you have Asperger's, or what? Do you really think this is a suitable topic to obsess about? Tell ya what--- get accepted to my workshop, and I'll damned well tell you what my problem with adverbs is!)
The gates are wide open, kids! You can walk through them, or not! But if you don't, one of us is going to be kicking himself, and it ain't gonna be me.
That's all I'm sayin'.
