juliette lee tagged me to be part of this wild zig-zagging self-interview process titled (somewhat unfortunately) the next big thing. i’d resisted participating but was lured by juliette’s invite, which is below (and which i pass along to you, from me, and mean every word of it!).
the questions are the following — and as you’ll see from reading jill’s, juliette’s, and my responses (or any of the zillions you can find online) — you should feel utterly free to answer in any way you wish, briefly or extensively or however else.
please let me know if you’re interested so i can tag you when i post my answers (which will appear on juliette’s site as i don’t yet have a functional site of my own).
