Dear Dream Michael Chabon,
Thank you for taking time out of your busy dream schedule to meet with me and tell me my novel in progress was all right. I’m glad that you liked the beginning, the ending, and the characters (and also my cat, who I brought along to our appointment because why not).
I just wanted to say that thanks to you, Dream Michael Chabon, I managed to break out of two weeks’ worth of writing funk and get back into my book. So thanks. And I’m sorry that I only had the vaguest idea of who you were before waking up this morning and going “wait who’s Michael Chabon”; I’ll get right on adding Kavalier & Clay to my reading list, it sounds pretty great.
