If you guys have been following the heated debate over the newest edition of Huckleberry Finn then…. Is this HILARIOUS or what?
Jenny sketched this pic for my second book: Fall of the Sparrows
I met her on Tuesday, the same day she wanted to introduce me her friend, Alex (an aspiring author). There’s a very interesting story behind this meeting. Alex was a long-time fan of Sarah Maas’ story QUEEN OF GLASS (published by Bloomsbury, 2012) before it was taken down from FictionPress. Then Alex discovered my blog via one of Sarah’s tweets. Then she discovered we went to the same school, University of Toronto. Then she visited my Facebook profile via my blog and discovered that we had one mutual friend…. Jenny. I told Sarah that I had coffee with one of her fans and her response was: NO WAY!!! That is so cool.
This incident reminded me of the time when I was walking through campus and was stopped by one of my FictionPress readers. We sorta new each other’s faces through Facebook but it was our first time meeting in person. For a moment we just stood there staring at each other wondering if we were hallucinating… Anyway, Jenny, Alex and I met up at a coffeeshop and spent a great hour chatting about writing, movies, art, and creativity in general.
Have you guys ever experienced something like this where you realized: Wow, ’tis a small world after all.
