Admittedly, it has taken me longer than it ought, but I have finally joined the HWA as an "active" member.
Granted, that doesn't sound like much of a big deal, but as a writer of horror, active membership was a professional goal.
It's always good to achieve goals.
What does this mean for my career going forward? Well, it serves as a badge of endorsement, should my ego need it. (And frankly, at times we all need a reassuring pat on the back!)
Failing that, it's a nice badge on the website.
Again, thanks for your support. And, if you are new here, having found your way to us via CreepyPasta or Chilling Tales For Dark Nights...welcome to the congregation!
