Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match…

Last week, I spotted a question that my friend Gillian Bronte Adams asked on her blog. I liked it so much, I reposted it here. Not only that, but it made me want to ask a question of my own. In honor of Valentine’s Day yesterday, I ask the following …

The Novelist

This feels a little weird. I’m a novelist (who should probably be working on his latest book) writing a review about a new video game…about a novelist trying to write his latest book but keeps getting distracted by other things. It’s kind of meta, I guess. That’s the correct usage …
