So far, there’s only one guest writer. He’s often to referred to as “Friend,” but he also happens to be my mentor as well.
“Friend” and I have known each other for about two and a half years now. He’s been writing longer than I have and he’s got the gusto and skill to prove it. Though he also has not been published, it’s something he looks forward to doing sometime in the future.
Most of these lessons, I’ve learned from him or through him in some way, on the wild journey that we started when he helped me pick up new characters and run with them. He knows plenty more about technique, style, and skill than I do, but I hope to catch up to him someday. If you asked him, he’d probably say I already have.
