Hello, everybody, and welcome to my first Ask Me Anything post. This is also my first post for paid subscribers. I want to take a moment to thank everyone who subscribes to this little venture, free or paid—time and attention are valuable things, and I appreciate you spending them here.
If you haven’t signed up as a paid subscriber, and you want to read this Q&A, there’s still time. A couple of paragraphs from now, if you’re not a paid subscriber, you’re going to run into a paywall. Just mash the button and sign up to read the post.
Kudos to all the readers who sent in such great questions about a wide and deep range of topics: this dog book I’m working on, my writing process, how I’d spend Powerball winnings, what I’d ask my parents if they were still around, and then some. You gave me a lot to think about.
Let’s dive right in.
From Susan: How is the weight loss going? I fell off the wagon and it rolled over me. I am hoping and praying you are feeling better and much healthier.
