I Can Stop Joining Listservs Whenever I Want. Really.

I think I reported earlier that I joined the New England Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators listserv. So far, it's been good. Really nuts and bolts writer stuff, much different from the more literary listservs I belong to.

Today someone at the NESCBWI listserv (my fourth listserv) suggested that writers interested in doing school appearances join teacher listservs. So I did. I joined one here in this state.

Do the math, children. That was listserv number five.

And I'm considering joining a sixth one.

It's sort of like gambling. Any listserv could be the listserv that what? I'm not even sure.

Mmmm, listservs. Betcha can't join just one. I'm seriously contemplating joining the CBC listserv. Apparently all the cool kids are doing it. Is that one of your six?

No! I think I've heard of it, but I was concerned that it wasn't appropriate for a writer to join. Let me know.
