Dear Future Melissa,
First off, hopefully you've gotten better at actually posting on Wednesdays, because that's something that we were slacking off on in 2012 and this first part of 2013.
2013 was a big year for you. College graduation, finding a job, and enrolling in graduate school, if said job gave you the money to get that started this year. How have you weathered these changes? Do you miss Lindenwood? Do you have friends at work? What's it like having money? Is grad school all you hoped it would be?
As of right now, we are full in the throes of plotting Gloves Off and switching between enjoyment and concern at all its challenges. Have you figured out the mysteries behind the town? What new citizens fill up Arch City? Is Max still your favorite? Have you gotten anyone to draw your characters for you?
Have you attempted to work on any other stories this year or has Gloves Off dominated again? Has the "little English majors" kid's cartoon been developed at all? Have you returned to any old friends like Corr or Honeywood? Do you have anything new you're working on or perhaps a collaboration with another writer or artist?
I hope you've put yourself out there and started sharing your characters with others, and have gotten into a habit of doing more writing for your blog. You should have plenty of inspiration, what with the fifth season of Venture Bros this year and new episodes of all your other favorite shows. As you read this, you should be only about six months away from the Phineas & Ferb movie!
I can't wait to see what we've learned this year, what our stories have grown into, what new projects we've started, and how we've grown as a person. Good luck being a full-blown adult!
PS: How is our "home office"?
