An Open Letter to My Fellow Old White Cishet Male Writers

 




The other day, an older male cishet white writer who I consider a mentor posted a rant on social media about how writers these days are nominated for awards based more on their identities – as women, BIPOC, or LQBTQ+ individuals – rather than on the strength and impact of their work alone. It made me very sad, and I’ve thought of little else since. Over the last several years, I’ve seen many

“No lawyers in Nekropolis. They're too scary even for this city.”
Tim Waggoner, The Nekropolis Archives

“It was a weird feeling knowing that people were looking to me for help – and frustrating too. You save the damn city a couple times, and suddenly everyone expects miracles from you.”
Tim Waggoner, The Nekropolis Archives

“By the way," Devona asked, "how did Lazlo know to come get us?"   "I have no idea. Sometimes he just shows up when I need him."   "That's odd," she said.   I laughed. "You're a half-human vampire who's asked a zombie ex-cop to help you track down a stolen magic crystal – and you think Lazlo's odd?”
Tim Waggoner, The Nekropolis Archives
