Okay, so... I have to apologize. I forgot this was the shark one. I can't read those sorts of stories. *covers eyes* But I am sure it was terrific and kudos to you for writing a commentary! (I do love you; I promise.)

I really liked the part where you pointed out your favorite way to write. What made it better was that you kinda started doing the "push-pull" thing right as you were talking about writing the "push-pull" things.

I also love how much research you put into your stories. All the little details just make it so much better. Especially with stuff like Gus' ailments!
I liked the reference that you put in from the Psych novel, because even though I read that one and totally get it the joke now, I probably wouldn't have caught it if I hadn't read the commentary.

And I learned something new about black marlins today, which is nice.

Aw yay!! I know I can sometimes obsessively over prep - too. Like, 99% of the research I do doesn't actually make it to the story. But research can often be a black hole for me simply because I get fascinated by what I'm reading lolol!!
