Penguin Pirate

Arrr! Prepare to be Boarded!

I almost never have someone unexpectedly knock on my door. Aside from a couple evangelists who don't understand that the "No Solicitation" sign includes them, it's been very quiet.

For the first section of this post to make much sense, you'll need to know that my apartment has two entrance doors Cut For Length...Collapse )

Huh. How about that?

For most of my life, I haven't written much fan mail. Over the last year I've started sending notes to writers and artists whose works I admire, though. I guess I imagined that they were already receiving torrents of letter and emails, and my humble words of praise would be lost in the crowd. Perhaps some are, but I've come to realize that many of them are much like me; working a day job to fund their creative pursuits, putting their creations out on the web, hoping that they'll be found, read and appreciated. So when I see something that I particularly enjoy, I'll send a note to tell the writer/artist about it.

I go on, behind this cut...Collapse )
