Take a Penny, Leave a Penny!

Close to three years ago, karnythia hosted an LJ post where she asked people to leave a comment if they had something they wanted or needed, or if they had something they were willing to give or offer.

I got two things: yarn and friends.

This is how I met rosefox, who has since become one of the people in my life whom I value most.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about that and what a big impact it had on my life over the past three years. And it made me want to do it for other people.

Quoting karnythia's post from all those years ago:

What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you have?

Feel free to answer any or all of them. They do not need to be realistic things (I put world peace on mine last time) If you don't have a LiveJournal, or would prefer to answer anonymously, give us a way to contact you.

Feel free to share this on LJ, DW, and other social media if you like.

I could try helping you learn to sew from a distance... Not sure where you're at in your knowledge or what sort of help you need--but I'd be willing to field questions and offer pointers and maybe figure out more.

I also would be willing to read your WIP and give you feedback. I'm not working on any writing of my own right now, but I am trying to improve as far as reading/critiquing/editorial goes... so... if you're not scared to share with me (and you shouldn't be, because I'm a big fan and cheerleader of yours!)...

I am at basically zero knowledge, though my mom just gave me a sewing machine so I'd like to learn how to use it! I will now definitely be shooting questions your way... so get ready!

As for the second point - omg thank you. I'm working on a novel project, and while I wanted Chris to help me initially, he just will not critique me at all, which is not helpful. I'm not very far into it yet, but it would be great to get some fresh eyes on it.
