Hello. I'm getting too old for this. I almost have a degree in creative writing and that is a depressing thought. Soon I'll either have to start publishing or start working as a telemarketer or something. Depressing.

Anyway, I've been posting my mediocre writing here for like... jeez... seven or eight years or something. So the old stuff isn't that great. Don't waste too much time with it.

Okay on to more optimistic things:
* Please read my writing? * Yes it's difficult to read; it's very rarely linear and when it's third-person it's almost always stream of consciousness and when it's first person it's almost always unreliable narrator. So y'may need to read it more than once to catch everything. But c'mon now. I'm trying to experiment. I don't just wanna do the same ol' thing.

Please review my writing? * If you review my story, I will review one of yours (unless something catastrohpic happens and I don't get a chance to.. cuz y'know accidents happen.) You can let me know which story of yours you'd like me to review even. And as I mentioned ealrier, I'm trying to get a degree in this crap so you can be quite honest with me. And detailed. Detailed is good.

This has to be the longest and most boring Profile ever. My apologies.

But read "The Lark Ascending" if you have time. It's my newest and is actually my creative writing honors thesis. I need the most help with that. Read it if you like really minimalist love stories.
