So late last month, I received the following email:
My name is Stephanie Yessayan and I work for a professional book editing marketplace called ServiceScape. We would like to write a review of your site and feature it within our “Need To Read Blog” section. I think your blog is a great resource and our clients would really appreciate it.
We may have a couple of questions as we write the review, so I just want to make sure that you are available for an email or two if the need arises.
Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
To which I replied:
I’m trying to wrap my head around the idea of my blog being a great resource. Wait a minute…. Wait…. …No, no, I just can’t imagine that.
But, yes, I’m available for emails. I check my email several times a day, though not constantly.
Thank you for considering me.

I lied, by the way. I check my email almost constantly when I’m at home. Such a liar!
This week, I got another email saying that the review was up:
How ’bout that, then? Eh? How ’bout that? ~still shaking my head in disbelief~
So now I get to use this badge:
How cool is that? Way, that’s how!
So I recommend ServiceScape in return, because they actually have real writer resources on their blog! Like Two Ends of the Pen, which has swell articles on it like this one by a symbologist decoding the legend of King Midas.
Don’t worry: I won’t let it go to my head and start posting genuine content. It’ll be the same old free-for-all around here it’s always been. Tomorrow’s Caturday, as usual.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: A character is given an unexpected recommendation.
