I've suffered for my art... now it's your turn.

I like to read, write, and make stuff.
(Sometimes, I do all of the above for money, and they even let me edit!)

Friends list: comprised of people whose journals and personalities I find interesting and try to read at least semi-regularly, and who I don't mind reading my journal too. I have a lot of friends-only entries. I get vaguely pouty when people drop me, and while I don't always add everyone who adds me (especially if I feel like my list is too long and I can't keep up), I rarely drop anyone I've added unless they drop me first. Occasionally I do drop and/or ban people who make me uncomfortable.

Elsewhere: Reading journal formerly located at minxbot - since LJ introduced tagging, I now put book posts on this journal.
Research & Writing project (it's a novel) located at intensefragilty
