One of the cool things about being a writer is, just the fact that you are one, you automatically belong to an eclectic extended family. Through the shared misery and elations of our common obsession, we are related. I love hanging out with my writer family. That’s turning out to be more literal than not — both my kids are now writers as well.
Thank you everyone for your feedback on that snippet I was working on. I’ve made changes and now hopefully it reads smoother and more natural.
On a related note — my good friend and fellow writer Melanie has gotten involved with podcasting and has put together her own show, perfectly titled: “Don’t Quit Your Day Job.” She extended to me the ultimate honor of being her co-host, and we did our first show last night. Listen to it either on iTunes or here on the official website: http://dqydjpodcast.blogspot.com/
