Q&A: Writer Friends and the Importance of Having Them. Part One.

In Which Your Hosts Answer a Few Questions about Friendship of a Writerly Variety.

Greetings, fellow octopi. Welcome to our First Ever Q&A!

With you today for this Very Special occasion will be our two co-founders: GeGi and endever*. The Topic is Writerly Friends, and it’s one which we’ve been nibbling about the edges of for quite some time here at The Octopus Society of Evil Authors Headquarters. We’ve decided, after much discussion between ourselves, to cover this area of writer life via a Question and Answer format; both in order to make our lives a little easier, but also — more importantly — to give you, dear readers, a chance to see this important facet of our lives from two different viewpoints. First to answer will be GeGi, followed by the same set of questions next week to be answered by endever*.

Without further ado, let us acquire appropriate refreshments and begin!
