I am in my mid-twenties, studying at grad school for a Ph.D in Creative Writing. I write mostly fiction and collect mostly rejection notices.

I can date a period movie by the bustle, love antique medical equipment, and have enough books to choke a horse. I like perfume and fat Victorian novels. I am currently at work on my first novel and whatever else strikes my fancy at the same time.

I support the Oxford comma, love the smell of roses, and collect fans.

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
