Interesting essay

Tor.com / Science fiction and fantasy / Blog posts / An Argument for Friendship

Interesting to me, currently, especially because my main character is a single woman with nary a friend and is at least partly about the friends she starts to allow herself to make and remake. Also interesting to me because most of my friends are my hubby and you lot. I only have a few friends (more acquaintances if you take into account how often we see each other or speak) out here in real-life-land that are not hubby or family. That is fine by me, though, because that is how I am comfortable most of the time. That is probably, also, why my main character is so much like me. "Write what you know," yanno?
