Your. Blog. Matters.

AWESOME post, Billy. Everyone should read it. Too cool Gina's reaction to one of your posts was to make some changes which resulted in a blessing coming to her marriage. You opened yourself up, and the unexpected happened -- in a good way!

So sorry that your agent didn't react favorably to your hard work doing a follow-up to "Writing the Romantic Comedy". I love that book and continue to this day to go back and re-read sections of it. How to books are so important to writers because they give us a baseline for discussion, and foundational principles for dealing with other creatives. I understand the mass populus may not be interested in how to write rom-com book, but there are some of us who are interested, namely me!

Anyway, I hope you continue to get cool stories like Ginas in the future, Billy. That's really heartwarming.

Billy, thanks so much for this, which I especially need now, during a crummy depressive spell in my own (non)work. Our work matters, even if not in the ways we intend or the ways we prefer.

Michael Maupin

Yes. THIS. :-)

Well said, Billy!

This is so moving, Billy. Thank you for sharing it.
It's also very encouraging and comes at just the right time for me in my writing life - a time of wondering what is the point of continuing. Bless you.
