Evil Editor

I've been a regular visitor to Evil Editor's blog for about a year and a half now. The time I spend reading the Face Lifts and the New Beginnings and the Q&As, and all the comments of the Minions, is time well spent, an investment in my writing, and always a great way to end the day. Laughing. To quote a brilliant man and incredibly talented writer, Stick and Move, reading Evil Editor is like smoking crack that makes you smart.

EE's wit is cutting at times, always cunning, and if Robin had it her way, cunnilinguistic, to make up a word. Not only am I entertained, but what I've learned is really hard to quantify. My writing is so much better now than it was when I stumbled upon the blog - I think I found it originally from Miss Snark's blog, which also entertained and educated me. My writing is tighter and more powerful. That doesn't mean it's good, necessarily, but I'm sure it doesn't suck as bad as it used to.

I don't know how much time EE devotes to his blog, but I know he's way under paid for it.

I do know EE stops by the blogs of his Minions occasionally, and maybe he's stopped by here. If so, he probably hasn't come back, since I only update this thing whenever the mood strikes me, which doesn't seem to be very often. However, EE, if you happen by, thank you for all that you do. If I were to meet you in person, I'd shake your hand, give you a soul brother hug, and offer to buy you the beverage of your choice.

Robin and Phoenix and Chris and the rest of the Minions on Evil Editor's blog did a bang up job with the two year anniversary party. EE was a frequent visitor to the comment section and all the Minions were posting comments. It was like being in a chatroom with the whole crew, and it was a chance to see a little bit more of some personalities, which is cool. Thanks Robin, Phoenix, Chris, Blogless T, and the rest of the folks that put in so much work on the blog and contests and prizes.

Pray for inspiration...
