*tap tap* Everyone cringes at the reverb. If I don't introduce myself awkwardly it wouldn't be a true representation of self. I'm a bit brash and bumble-y, but my quirky charm might make you smile or laugh once in a while. While I've written a few things for a local trade magazine and company newsletters I've mostly been a closet writer my entire life. I realized not long ago that I gripe about how annoyed I get with my day job and that while I might be good at it, I'm always looking for something more... so instead of doing nothing yet again, I'm attempting to take some action. I've started a blog, I've joined this place, and I'm eager to improve, learn, and maybe even get something published along the way. So hi, and sorry about the mess in the kitchen. I promise I'll clean it up tomorrow.
