Can I get an Amen?

This excellent article from Broken Pencil, The Office Hours of the Creative Class: More and more artists are hanging out by the water cooler reminds me of, well, me and you and everyone we know.* Yes?

    Immediate reactions of mine to the article which demand unpacking:

    – Is this practice actually that new? Is the shock coming from the idea that white-collar workers might have crazy secret lives?

    – Why do people love neologisms so hard?

    – the Creative Class argument causes an immediate and visceral negative reaction in my headpiece. This one demands thought.

    I just finished reading The Empress and I am stunned. Your writing style is attention-grabbing, and the situations you have given your characters are all over the emotional charts. From joy to envy to lust to longing, you kept me on the edge of my seat.

    So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for such an amazing piece of literature, and I cannot wait for the sequel.

    I think it goes without saying I am going to add you.

    A fan.
