And despite everything, I find Tina funny. I even get the opportunity to
laugh at myself sometimes through her. But maybe your real point is that
we're going to do the work, and the collector of anecdotes is going to
make the money? Lots of people make money by collecting other people's
stories and using them commercially, and I have no argument with that.
But I have my own book to write, and I'm saving my material for that
one!

Happy writing,
Jo
