Bowing to popular demand…

… we’re going to keep this site up and running.  We’ll put at least two posts up a week, continuing to mix established writers with “non-pro” reader submissions.  Thanks for voicing your support: you inspired us to make the commitment to WHY WE WRITE despite the rigors of actually, finally, having jobs to go to.  So keep those essays coming in, and I’ll be talking with you soon.


  1. Yippee!!! One of my very favorite blogs will continue to live! Many thanks!

  5. I discovered this site from Whitney Matheson’s Pop Candy and am addicted to these wonderful essays. They are so entertaining and inspiring. Thanks for decided to keep it up. You should compile them into a book and sell it. I’m sure Oprah would put it on her List.
