I intend to update this periodically as I come up with new material, so feel free to check back now and then! I’ll pin this list to the top of my profile, since no one is actually going to come back and check for new stuff of their own volition, unless they are my mom. (Hi, Mom!)

I read a lot of books and sometimes I’m funny. Aspiring novelist, practicing writer, and Oxford comma fan (though obviously lenient on sentence fragments).
