When I was in college, I wrote for (and eventually edited) a campus comedy paper that existed for a grand total of two years. (It was a major success.) The experience was absolutely amazing and hilarious and I met a lot of incredibly talented people, including the guy who eventually became my husband After graduation, most of the writers became teachers or went to grad school or moved to New York to work at real jobs in graphic design or spent five years wandering around Los Angeles searching for purpose (hint: that would be me).
Just this week, one of us released a Games of Thrones fan fiction web series that is blowing up. I’ve been hearing a lot about it via Facebook, as said writer friend and I still occasionally exchange “likes,” but late last night, I came across it posted on one of my favorite news sites and was so excited. I had absolutely nothing to do with this, but I am so shameless, I am taking credit – for knowing one of the writers six years ago.
Congratulations, friend! I am so proud.
