Organizations have rules.
These rules can be
written or unwritten.

There are some rules
that can be changed
and there are some core rules
that shouldn’t ever be changed.

A writing buddy wants
Romance Writers Of America
to change their rules
to accept all genres.
This rule shouldn’t be changed
because if it was,
the group would no longer be
Romance Writers Of America.

Another writing buddy
wants one of the eligibility requirements
to be changed from
40,000 words to 25,000 words.
This rule COULD be changed
without destroying the group.

Before joining an organization,
find out which rules can be changed
and which rules can’t be changed.
If you can’t live with the rules
that can’t be changed,
that organization is NOT the organization for you.
