  1. You totally should. I can write great copy.

  2. I second EC's motion. I have a feeling I'll be needing you. And how.

  3. I know you're low on money right now, but once you're on your feet I'd love to help you with that novel of yours. I'm good at working with a writer's own voice and not trying to drown it out with my own ideas.

  4. i've been a coordinating tornado; when the time comes to join forces, let me know! there's got to be a good reason for my blooming bureaucratic maneuvering skills (like a fat-tabby, i patrol)...

  5. Nice to know that I can get this kind of help.
    My manuscript will definitely need some shine.:)
