Wil: Your fellow "I love the Millenium" commentator and Typepad user Michael Ian Black has been talking a lot about Mr. Sedaris, too. I actually think you and Michael feel the same way about David Sedaris, but MIB expresses his affection... differently: Only a Few Days Left...

Wil, My wife Dana introduced me to your blog -- she and I loved STNG. We kept reading because you're a gifted, incredibly witty writer. I slacked for a while when you ran into issues with the original WWdN, but I've recently been reading again because I'm a freelance writer working from home now, too, and can identify with some of what you've talked about where the writing life is concerned (how hard it is to keep a discipline, sometimes, the solitary nature of the work, etc). Now, though, you've absolutely sprung the gears on the cool meter, because Obama is The Man, in the best sense of the term. Now adults of our generation get a chance to know the excitement people were feeling when JFK was on his way into the White House. 'Nuff said.

Thus Spake Wil-a-thustra: "[Maybe] the whole thing comes down to discipline, which I understand is one of the toughest things for freelance writers who work out of their house to maintain..." Truer words never spoken. Maybe it's that I can walk to the computer and start working in a flannel robe and sweats. Not conducive to a sense of DOING something, y'know?

I had not been by to read your blog in a while, Wil, and my wife Dana sent me the link to this one because she's been watching me go through something similar, especially since my blogging led to me getting paid gigs to write. This nearly had me in tears, in fact, and that's pretty damn good considering I'm Mr. Hard-ass crime writer dude now. Thank you, Wil, for being a blogger who never just sits back on his traffic numbers or name and lets it ride. That's integrity in the blogosphere, and you have tons of it. Steve
