Author has written 125 stories for Life, Song, Love, Humor, General, Religion, School, Essay, Romance, General, Family, Horror, Humor, Nature, and Sci-Fi.

I promise I will review back each review received!

Updating this now that I've taken a creative writing class. My earlier works (pretty much everything before September) are generally not that great; be warned.

Student at a small liberal arts college in Texas. Career path unknown (and I'm a junior. omg). Male. My professor says my strengths are writing about ecstasy, working within preestablished meter/form, and writing about adolescent experience. I hope to be writing my whole life; I tend to post works here when they're in early stages of revision and I'm looking for commentary.
