I’ve posted before about my mini-scale writing career, and how it’s providing everything an author could want — only in smaller doses, without paparazzi. So I’ve received two fan emails, met two fans at conferences for lunch, posted one piece of fan art on my office filing cabinet, unexpectedly met one fan at a Thanksgiving dinner … and this week I got to spend an evening with cosplayers dressed as alumnae and faculty of the Royal Academy. I sat next to Linus Ukadnian at dinner — thankfully, not a method actor! The real Linus would be an unpleasant companion.
In addition, I was the answer to a game show question at an awards dinner. All right, it was an in-house game show at our employee recognition dinner. I told you this was a mini-career, yes?
I’m not the most celebrated author at our college, but I felt like it this week. Friends are worth more than fame any day!
