I don't remember how I stumbled upon this "read me" essay, but it's absolutely great. I would like to get every reader of every writer to go over it and think about it, in comics especially. Obviously, I mean that in terms of autobiographical material where comics are concerned. I don't know why I have never seen this before, every writer/artist should have a link to this on their site! Small disclaimer: I am in no way suggesting that the average reader doesn't follow these guidelines; the ones who don't are really few and far between. But if everyone read this essay, maybe they could become non-existent.
