Stormy Cs

0 1 200
Le sigh.  Once again my proposal has been declined for the Conference on College Composition and Communication. It feels like any time I propose anything on technology—and I mean anything—I’m in.  But if I try to “break into” any other track it’s a no-go. It becomes a self-defeating loop.  The best way to get accepted, I’ve found, is to put together a panel with friends at Cs.  So if you’re not accepted you’re behind to start with.  To put it more bluntly, the best way to present at CCCC is to be presenting at CCCC. Eh, maybe it’s me.  Anyone else feel this sort of catch 22?
