C!s spent
mission drive within everything
mmm...peanut buttery!
Curing boredom with silly brain dances, wiggling my toes, baking really good pumpkin pie, and putting Internet jerks in their places.
I'm a sexcretary. And an editor. And a future bestselling author.
Humans assume that God is as judgmental as they are.

The "swank" in "swankivy" does not mean I'm into porn. It's a style of music and it also means cool. Not that I particularly think I am. It's just that others have said so, and I've just had to take their word for it and accept my status. ::sigh::

I enjoy the following hobbies:

  • Writing annoyingly long character-oriented novels. But I'm trying to learn to be concise.
  • Using my soprano voice to its fullest.
  • Playing ridiculous pranks.
  • Playing Dance Dance Revolution until I drop.
  • Working on my personal website, which is threatening at this moment to take over the Internet.
  • Reading books that don't insult my intelligence.
  • Doodling in the margins, occasionally fairly well.
  • Creating content for my two webcomics, Negative One and So You Write.
  • Beating other people at their own games.

I am talented in the following:

  • Imitating the voices of several cartoon characters.
  • Identifying grammatical errors, typos, and things in language that are just WRONG.
  • Playing musical instruments; I play eight instruments with varying degrees of incompetence.
  • Memorizing useless things and finding odd times to recite them.
  • Surprising people with my unbalancing honesty.
  • Typing. Well over 100 wpm.

I am interested in the following:

Random facts about me:

  • I am a tiny person with long blonde hair. And I frequently get teased about secretly being an elf. Contrary to popular belief, I do not live in a tree and bake cookies. (I do bake cookies, though.)
  • I am a vegetarian.
  • I live alone.
  • I consider myself an atheistic Pagan.
  • I have thirteen novels to my name, but only nine are completed.
  • I have two literary agents. One represents my fiction and one represents my nonfiction. I'm double-agented. Haha.
  • The nonfiction agent recently sold my book. It is entitled The Invisible Orientation: An Introduction to Asexuality. It was published on September 2, 2014.
  • I am never bored or depressed.
  • In some circles I am sort of Internet famous. Meaning I am recognized in public on occasion by people who have seen my work. Which is sort of weird.
  • I've got a horribly filthy mouth, which unbalances people who expect me to have a clean vocabulary since I can be mistaken for an innocent thirteen-year-old.
  • Sex does not interest me. That fact interests many.
  • I live in Tampa, Florida.
  • I am a registered member of the Church of the Subgenius.
  • I've never had a driver's license.
  • I was born in 1978. On a Tuesday.
  • I have been in a movie. (No, not as an extra.)
  • There's a lot I'm not sharing.

If you'd like to comment on something I've written on Everything, your compliments and critiques are appreciated, but please be gentle. Suggestions will do, and I will respond to them. ::snort::

Note: I am selfish with my C!s. If you get one from me, consider it serious, not to be taken lightly. If I C! you, I REALLY appreciate your efforts. Except for that one time I C!ed someone accidentally. Oops.
