Not giving up  
Kameron Hurley had a good year.

And this is a prime example of why author blogs should not count as "fanwriting" for Hugo purposes.

Because there's the financial pull for an author's blog to be used as a promotional branch of their pro work, so it's not really fan activity, do you mean? I see that point, but I don't know about a simple way to define what to disqualify. I wouldn't like to disqualify everything an ever-published author writes.

So maybe I would be an optimist and hope that badly self-promotional writing won't win. Can we do better?

(I haven't actually read anything of Hurley's writing besides the "fighting" essay, so I don't have an opinion on whether it in particular is fanwriting, or is good, or cetera.)
