I’ve spoken of Mary Robinette Kowal many times on my blog. February was her “Month of Letters”. I didn’t officially sign up to participate this year but instead she inspired me to make February my month of haikus. So, while I was writing and mailing haikus, this letter came in from her, dated February 1st, wherein she responds to my recent mention of wanting to give up on this blog so many times along the way. As an author and fellow creative, Mary knows the challenge of starting and of finishing a lengthy project.
