Like a number of my Clarion buddies, I'm linking to our fellow Clarion buddy Chris Lynch's blog post about what we've all been up to, writing-wise. As Jason Fischer points out, Gardner Dozois told us in tones that brooked no debate that most of us were destined for total obscurity. Either he meant it and is monumentally wrong, or he said it on purpose to goad us and is a brilliant amateur psychologist (although editors do tend to need those skills).
Anyway, if you're wondering whether Clarion, as rumors would have it, steamrollers your creativity flat for months and years after you emerge, check out Chris's post and marvel at how well we all write in two dimensions. (After all, screens, paper, all two-dimensional. It's all good.)
