Welcome to my Home!
I will read anything that I can get for free, unless I have tried that author before and know I don't like them. That said, I admit that I favour sci-fi and fantasy, because I grew up on them. I'm still working on gaining experience with many genres. I should note that I read more childrens' literature than most grown-ups I know. I prefer the fluid authorial voices of British and classical authors.
I started writing when I was six. I'd loved reading while I was learning to read, so as soon as I learned that I could make books too, I decided to. Currently, I am a lazy novice writer (though a far better reader), but can still come out with work, especially short poetry. I like writing about my own experiences.
I'm friends with [JKing
] and [Samael_22
], and I'm in love with Ronin777. We are a couple of nuts.

July 11, 2008:
- I've been working on reading Confabulation
, which is an anthology of all the qualifying Wyn Lit 24 entries over its first year. I have over 100 stories to read by 34 authors. Currently, I'm on page 87 out of 301. Once I've read them all, I get to pick the three best and vote for them. The due date for my vote is August 15.
April 26, 2008:
- Now that I've moved my books and bookshelf to Clayton's new place, I will be slowing down my reading a bit. Maybe I'll do more of what I should be doing.
April 15, 2008:
- I must learn to delegate!
- I'm going to move in with Ronin777 on May first or so.
- In case you haven't noticed, I've given up on that essay thing. I didn't even start it.
January 7, 2008:
- Well, I've gone and stuck my name on the ABC
. It's time to write an essay. See RR.Circle of Children, A
December 27, 2007:
- I'm back.
- Now that Christmas is over, my work routine is going to a little more sporadic and less demanding. I hope this means more Wynterblue and WritersCo and a cleaner room and more SNES and reading and writing. I am also worried enough about money that I might be dumb and find a second job. At least I don't XMas shop. Yarg.
What I Do Here

contest, where we write poetry that isn't free verse. We don't hate free verse, but thought it would be nice to go somewhere
where that isn't 90% of what you see, so here we are.
