Blog Cameo

In lieu of making anything original, I think I’ll link to my friend Every-day Prospects’ blog, where I’m featured talking about how hard it is to be charming.  Find me here.

An excerpt from her post, which is, as usual, measured and intelligent:

“It’s not that I don’t think writing and being good with people are valuable skills.  I am convinced that they are very valuable indeed.  You don’t decide to become a writer/social worker if you think that those ‘soft’ skills are too soft to shape real things.  I believe deeply in the practical worth of kindness and good communication skills—deeply enough to try and make them into a career that’s good for the world and good for me.  It’s just that those skills…you can’t catalogue them.  You can’t quantify them and you can’t show them off at a party.”
