Thank you for the cross post to Anastasia’s interview. she’s awesome!
Hey Gwenda, I really like “The Pilo Family Circus,” but don’t get me wrong — it’s no “Geek Love.”
(Let me know what you think if you read it!)
Loved the “how do you know when to quit?” article, and love all of your “hangovers!” More often then not they get me thinking about what to write on my own blog. Thanks for steering me in the right direction in this giant sea we call the internet!
I loved “How do you know when to quit?” as well. The whole part about, “Writing…it’s something with words on paper, right?” resonated with me yesterday, big-time! Always good to know I’m not alone.
