Greetings, earthlings!

If you're here, you ostensibly already know who I am, so we'll skip the introductions and move right to the good stuff.

Why have I created this? Three reasons:

* For awhile now, I've been looking for a way to group all of my best writing into one place. Traditionally I've used Facebook for this, but their draconian and odious policies are too much for me these days. I'm rather inactive there, mostly because I wanted my writing showcased more than anything else and Facebook isn't the proper medium for that.

* I've been looking for a way to post things to Twitter but not clog up the feeds of friends. I enjoy Twitter, but my thoughts aren't limited to 140 characters, so it often takes several tweets to explain myself. Not necessarily long enough to deserve a fully-fleshed out blog post, but not particularly suited for 140 characters at a time, either.

* For a long time now, I've been wanting to put my best writing to date somewhere in one central place, somewhere I could hand you the URL and say "come find me."

Here we are. Welcome to my Dreamwidth.

The way it works is pretty simple: I have and will continue to post longer essays from Facebook, things I wrote for school, things I wrote for myself, etc, and interspersed with those will be whatever off-the-cuff small bites that were just too long for Twitter. The newest posts are at the top of the page- the further down you go, the older the post. Comment if you wish, I'd be delighted. For the moment, at least, comments you leave won't be visible immediately because I'm screening comments to make sure no spam shows up, but I'll approve every comment that isn't spam pretty quickly, and then it'll display.

Anyway. Thanks for stopping in- make yourself comfortable :)
