So does this mean “buttload” is two words and not one?
Damn. I need to make a note of that.
Actually, my proofreading skills are so deficient I’m not even sure if this is a list of stuff that needs correcting, or a list of the the stuff that’s already been fixed.
(But from the list, sounds like the book’s going to be a kick. Can’t wait).
I’ve read about 2 blog entries, and I’m so buying your book. New fan: Won.
Where have you been all my life? How is it that now, (while mindlessly practicing escapism tactics by wandering the shelves of my local bookstore), I came across your books? How did I not know that all the while a lovely literary addiction was sitting on the shelves…waiting. Thank you so much for your words. From the child where nothing is really new, I discovered something completely unique in your words. Why, oh why, don’t you teach a class in Chicago?! What I wouldn’t give.
Thanks so much for your stories.
What I wouldn’t give to be able to teach workshops in Chicago.
