I'm not exactly sure how to phrase this (which is not a great sign for a writer ;) ), so I'll just say I've received both encouraging and questioning messages about me applying for this position and I appreciate them both. There are many reasons why I'm not applying, not just that I have a current job, but I'm not really comfortable listing all the reasons why. It comes off as defensive, I suspect, and of course some of the reasons are private.
I think it's true that women, people of colour, and other underrepresented groups are less likely to apply for this position for a variety of reasons. I've been in the industry for a long time and I've always tried to be a resource for new writers and existing writers trying to develop their skills. If anyone has questions about getting into RPG writing or needs a little guidance, feel free to contact me. I rarely check my messages here but you can reach me at medesha at yahoo dot com.
