    I don’t know if you guys saw, but Annie’s Mailbox directed a letter writer to AVEN this week: http://www.creators.com/advice/annies-mailbox/she-s-just-not-that-into-him-and-never-was.html
    I thought that was pretty exciting!

    Yes, I saw. It was a good response and I should have picked it up. I’m not going to say too much here because I already have several platforms where I can excel at putting my foot in my mouth.
