Sorry, non-writer-type people. Sometimes we really do speak another language, and when we get excited about it, we sometimes accidentally leave you out.
This strip features a cameo from Ronni, whose image I borrowed (with permission!) ’cause I needed a writer friend to banter with. Though she is a real friend of mine, this specific conversation did not actually happen. But we talk about writing a lot, and we have edited each other’s work and supported each other through all the ups and downs of this life of weirdness.
The other person featured in the strip is not a real person. But I’m sure people like her probably get frustrated with us.
If you want to know what all those terms we’re throwing around are, though, ask a writer.
