In Good Company


For reasons that I can neither understand nor explain, it seems that a good number of people are interested in what I have to say—I just recently crossed the 900 follower mark on Twitter.

Numbers don’t mean that much to me. I’d be writing in much the same way whether I had 9 followers or 9 million followers. The numbers only hold significance to me when I think about you, the individual, the living, breathing person reading these words. I’m really humbled that number.

So I’m proposing a celebration that involves you: I will send my 1000th follower a new, hardcover edition of the Essays of E. B. White.

And have no fear, current followers, I have something for you, too. When we cross the 1000 mark, I’m going to give away 4 like-new paperback copies of Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury to 4 randomly selected current followers.

These books and authors have been some of the most influential in my own life, and I’m hoping they can bring you some of the same inspiration they’ve brought to me.

You should follow @plasticmind on Twitter, or if you’re already following me, spread the word!
