Thanks for all the feedback on this little series. I can't tell you how helpful it's been to me to finally get to put all these thoughts and experiences into a kind of coherent order and sequence. (Yes, I do want to write a book so this is a great chance to help me sort through what's worth writing and what's not.) I love your questions. They help to shape what I write.
I've got #6 mostly finished. I can't write as fast as you all can read, apparently! But it should be up by tonight.
