    Thank you for “A Background Poorly Written” – as a fellow writer, I feel the same way and as such the story struck precisely the right note.

    Best Regards,

For me, it’s almost like I’m reading someone else’s tale, and I get to be surprised when I’m hearing it for the first time; it’s a big part of what makes writing fun for me.
