"I must have a motor car. And it was thus I became a novelist. For it is a very strange thing that people will buy you a motor car if you will tell them a story." -Virginia Woolf

Fortunately or unfortunately, I'm a legal adult. When I'm not pretending to be a famous novelist, I draw in ballpoint pen and paint in watercolors. I hunt for new sweaters to add to my obscenely large collection, search for ways to increase the size of my handwriting, and try not to get pulled over for looking too young to operate a vehicle again. I'm studying English at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. If you have any questions about who I am or what I do, shoot me some messages.
I love critiquing and good books, so recommend some, but please be sincere and restrict all recommendations to my message board or inbox. Thanks.
Warning: The following works are first drafts and may contain traces of bad grammar, misspelled words, plot holes, or peanuts.
Long live the Oxford comma.

How do we become who we were always meant to be, and gain courage to separate ourselves from those around us? How do we admit who we really are without losing those who brought us there? Most importantly, how do we become adults?
