The debate is over.
My head won, convincing me that it was my heart, too. The stories started talking to me, and they want to be read. (Nods to Katey for the Konrath link yesterday). I'll still take a high-profile print mag any day, but the truth is, most print mags aren't as high profile as they once were.
I have a few (maybe a dozen) published stories that I'm pretty happy with and for which the rights have reverted to me. What to do, what to do. The reprint options are woeful. (Nods to K.C.) Don't worry...I have something in mind. Stay tuned, dear readers.
The Great Electronic Debate greatly influenced the future of the little mag I helped start (Sand). Check out Ed's blog (if you can call his lousy, once every-other-month postings a blog) for details.
