Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Existential uncertainties aside, I'm a web writer who has a

Would also like to write a work of fiction I could proudly share
beyond my immediate circle of friends.
It should be pretty obvious, I'd also like create a connection with
someone who shares similar dreams.
I’m really good at

I'm also rigorous bibliophile and I keep an extensive archive of
what I've read and written.
I've also placed a considerable amount of time in developing other
uses for tongues (este chiste suena mejor en español).
The first things people usually notice about me

Sweet zombie jesus that man is so handsome!
That would be entertaining reaction, in reality people tend to
notice that I'm very nice, well read, awkwardly funny, and
They also notice (and are occasionally surprised) that I do not
speak with a blatantly hispanic accent. Although damn th's like
dartmouuth still vex me.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Books I'm reading, books I will read, how do certain narrative
structures survive scrutiny, how plausible can dystopias be.
I specially enjoy discovering how other people have crystallized
some notions I might have into amazing quotes. Current
Sarah Beall: “This whole idea of being good in bed is like being an
acrobat or having a ten inch dick,” Beall said. “But being good in
bed is really about paying attention to your partner and knowing
what they like, and being comfortable in your own skin and being
comfortable with them and their body.”
