Sincerity and Honesty: I Like That In A Writer.

In an article about the death of Captain America, I happened to glance at the small blurb that the writer, Steve Shives, included in his author profile:

I'm not especially intelligent or eloquent, but I'm honest, independent and prolific, so chances are I'll stumble over an insight here and there. Thanks for reading, and don't be shy with the feedback.

This is self-effacing, sincere and very charming. It makes me happy to see a writer make a statement like that about himself, especially in these days of arrogance and snark.

Thank you, Steve.
