About

* Mostly harmless, though with a tendency to try and put Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy quotes and references into as many sentences as possible.

* Mad about football (soccer, for all you Americans/associates of America) and cricket.

* The current President of @Author_Games, the not-quite-official writer games account! Accept no imitations.

* English Literature student a.k.a. workshy layabout a.k.a. likely to be unemployed for a while. Unless I conquer my fears of the corporate literature system and actually get around to attempting to get published.

* Feel free to say hi! I don't bite. Unless you're shoving pointless advertising/ read requests/ fan requests in my face, in which case you will a) be reported and b) risk getting an angry tirade full of long and complicated words that I just looked up to try and make myself sound clever. Or I might decide I just don't want to waste my time on you.

art of keeping
up with yesterday'
~ Don Marquis

'would it have been worth while
to have bitten off the matter with a smile
to have squeezed the universe into a ball
to roll it towards some overwhelming question'

'I read, much of the night, and go south in the winter'

'Time would say nothing but I told you so'
