Question for writers/readers

If you write or read (especially fic), then I'd be interested to hear your answers to these 2 questions:

1. What do you think about authors writing "commentary" for one or more of their stories? I've seen several people do this, and being as interested in the process of writing as in the actual product, I find such commentary fascinating to read. But I could see how it might seem like overkill or indulgence--I mean, how selfish is it to assume that anyone would want to know what was going through your head when you decided what Blair would say to Jim to convince him of something?

2. Would any of you be interested in commentary from me, on one of my fics? If not, I understand. If so, any particular fic? Specify in the comments.
