The Tenant in Room 117: Two Write Hands

I remember seeing Two Write Hands a few months ago while surfing on one of the blog traffic sites and I remembered it from a previous masthead image which was an animated gif of the author in a series of different poses, and when Emily bid on my little space, well, how could I refuse?



The thing I was most drawn to were the challenges she faced professionally, whether it is cleaning up her new desk of the detritus left by the previous employee, the dilemma she faced when presented with the submissions of a rather cocky cartoonist and finally getting the respect she deserves when dealing with abusive people. As the months go on, there she gains more responsibility at the magazine she works at, and that is the thread that really interested me. It sort of reminds me of the plot of a certain ABC show truth be told.

Of course, there is more to her blog than just work. She is also a full-time student and has an interesting family life, so there are other tales to tell, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention that.

Thanks for the plug. It's not everyday a landlord actually reads the stuff I write! :)

It is what you are paying me the big BE credits to do ;)

And just when I was getting the Betty-triggered publishing course flashbacks under control... (skims first few entries) AAAAAAAAAAAAAA (*cough*) yep, apt comparison. I think I need to go lie down now.

(Another fab tenant!)
