Beyond flattered to be named a new fav! Can’t wait to keep reading your work in 2023, Alex. :) And glad to see you’ve bit the bullet on going paid. You come to find that people *want* to support the work they love, which can be super encouraging artistically.

Awesome! Congrats on going paid! What patience you have my friend! That’s amazing to me. Congrats, also, on landing an agent; no easy feat! I like your writing--it’s strong, clear, honest, concise. Good stuff. I’m saying this as both a published writer and developmental book editor ✍️

I write about some similar topics on my Stack.

I love listicles so much, especially these. It is my favorite part of the new year. Congrats on all of the goodness from 2022 and excited to see from afar what 2023 has in store!
