Guys, I've got to work the late shift at the video store tonight. Want to make sure I post before the day gets away from me.

I was a new participant in Whiskerino this year, and you all could not have been more welcoming. When I first signed up I was certain that I would post and comment everyday, and also that I would attend this "throwdown" of which I'd heard tell. But you know what the man said about best laid plans, and a crazy work schedule and a newly released book have really scrambled mine. Still, I've enjoyed every minute of it. With the exception of @phil (and @blastro, of course), I've never met any of you in real life, but I feel I've gotten to know you over these past four months. I will miss hearing your voices.

Do me a favor: I am the editor of an independent magazine called Makeout Creek. We publish fiction, poetry, nonfiction, art and photography. Many of you are obviously artists and photographers, and hopefully some of you are writers as well. I'm currently at work on our fourth issue, and of course there will be more issues in the future. So send me your stuff. It will be an honor to have the chance to perpetuate Whiskerino and its participants in any way I can.

Thanks to all of you for allowing me to participate. Special thanks, of course, to @mackle.


P.S. I'm on the Facebook, so hit me up. The name's Andrew Blossom. You'll recognize the photo.

So amazed and honored that you'd throw out a Pose on the final day. Let me know about that magazine of yours; I'm always into helping a brother out.

Take it easy.

It was nice to meet you even if it was ever so brief. We need to hang out sometime. I will definitely be sending you some stuff for Makeout Creek. See you round town!

Um, I think your cat can read! Thanks for the comments. This shot is a fitting end to the past four months. I'm a rookie like you and also could not believe how welcoming everyone was. It was a great time.

Good luck with Makeout Creek, and your Noir book.

I'm in RVA a half-dozen times a year. Perhaps we'll manage to meet up sometime.
