My name is Jules. I'm American, eighteen years old. I've never been in love. I've quit smoking, my arms ache, hollow from wanting.

My favorite book is White Oleander by Janet Fitch. My favorite band, Neutral Milk Hotel. My favorite poet, Sharon Olds.

Update August 6th, 2010: I have moved to Singapore and start university on Tuesday. Times are a-changin'. The Romancing of Tuesday Dennings (which, by the way, I'm writing again), was nominated for Best Het at SKoW! Woo. You can read it here: www.fictionpress.com/~jwoodandkezer

I set up a formspring because I'm bordering on megalomania and love participating in narcissistic fun. http://www.formspring.me/julesykins
