Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

We met online, back before it was cool to do so, before people were actually looking for other people online, back when AOL was all the rage. It was a bit of an accident, a quick exchange of messages in which neither of us could have possibly suspected we’d become pen pals and then phone buddies and then best friends.
