UPDATE (12/9/13): I'm finally brushing off the dust. I haven't been active on here for nearly over a year. A lot of things has happened in real life, and I went through a hard time.

I want to thank everyone who has ever reviewed my work posted on here. Thank you so much for the critiques and the encouragement. I really appreciate it. I want to apologize to those whom I overwhelmingly critiqued when reviewing their works. I know I was an overzealous grammar nazi, I'll admit it.

And, yes, I am still writing. I have written "throwaway" novels and short stories during the past few years, and I'm currently planning to rewrite some of those projects. If you're interested, feel free to check me out on tumblr.

If you're ever curious about what I'm reading or what are my favorite books, feel free to check me out on Goodreads.
