@MargaretAtwood I entered the Hulu contest Handmaid's Tale. I have watched the Hulu televised series adapted from your novel by the same name. It is very heart stopping! 
          	  
          	  A few days after I had entered the contest in my city women dressed as Handmaids stormed the state congress building. I have joined up with them and wrote a second entry - a non fiction essay - with photographs of what happened. I wanted to send you a link. Thank you for your visionary novel. https://www.wattpad.com/story/109409129-my-tale-non-fiction-myhandmaidstale

@MargaretAtwood I'm still processing the first time my name and Margaret Atwood appeared next to each other. Oooo, boy, I don't know what to do with myself. I'd have to sit down if I wasn't already. What's the next step? Lay down? Get a tattoo?

Hello! I love your writing and was hoping I could ask you how writing as a career changed your relationship with literature? 
          An hour before my graduation my stepdad (a ghost writer) told me if I write as a career reading and writing will no longer be for enjoyment (this along with many other disheartening things about the topic but I was too shaken to devote them all to memory though they all still effected me). The entire reason I want to be a writer is because, supposedly, if you do what you love it doesn't feel like work. Going through the motions and carrying on in life already feels like exhausting work to me and there is very little I get joy from. Hearing my stepdad say that broke me for a long time. It's towards the end of my gap year (which might end up stretching the rest of my years) and I barely got myself together (well "together" as in I figured out why I found it difficult to leave bed, not as in fixing the reason) last week. It is really important to me that I discover how ones relationship with writing changes when it becomes their career. Thanks for taking the time to read this. ( :

I am in awe about the e-signature pen invention, LongPen. That was always something I puzzled over--how someone could replicate that advantage of a signed print book in electronic books. I was thinking, what, send them an autographed "author card" like a baseball card for readers to collect?  Seemed sorta' lame. But this! Brilliant.
