One artist-writer looking for a creative partner who can take it when she tells him/her what she really thinks – because she will. Often. Much of the time she may try not to, but will in the end be unable to help herself. Must appreciate having poop in a group, must appreciate and preserve a tidy workspace and above all must tell the truth. Expect many laughs, both at artist-writer and at yourself. Humor may be hard to communicate; if male, expect to have to hold your own with a very strong woman.
