  1. I’m so glad that I finally managed to read “Pudgygate”! When I attended the Master Class in 2003, you put it out as an example of a sample manuscript. I noted the big font, the fact that you started the story on the first page but forced the reader to turn the page at an interesting part, and then I ran off to write my own work.

    I knew the story was about Princess Diana, but I assumed it was an SF story where she got pudgy! A dozen years later, I found a very different–and more poignant–story.
