Author has written 39 stories for General, Action, Humor, Love, General, School, Historical, Friendship, and Nature.

So...me. Name's Jesse, Ender, Thirsty, or Muffin, depending on who you ask. I've been writing as long as I can remember, but stuff worth reading, I've been writing that since the first time I saw a poetry slam. Gotta love spoken word poetry. For those of you reading some of the stuff with suicide, none of my friend's are dead. I wrote it all the night she turned serious about it, when it stopped being a joke and starting being something imminent on the horizon. I'm 15 years old, a basketball player, and a poet, as you may well have guessed. I pretty much never turn off my computer and TV if I'm at home, though I try to be out with my friends rather than sitting in my basement.
I should be adding atleast something about weekly, though I can't promise how good it will be, because I go to a class called YCA (www.youngchicagoauthors.org), which is about the most amazing place in existence, and it's completely mandatory to write something every week.
I'm new to writing stories, so critique on them would be greatly appreciated, and poetry's what I work on all the time, so that would be invaluable as well. Hope you like my stuff. If you don't, go away, you're clearly retarded.
