Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[UNDER SEVERE RECONSTRUCTION]
I am not a doctor. Get that out of the way first.
I've been through several mostly unrelated jobs (including, but not
limited to: gallery, gay bar, publishing house, paddle steamer, and
a gentleman's outfitter), before settling down over a year ago and
running a coffee shop in my local library. I then lost everything
(profession- and finance-wise) to a nasty piece of council
bureaucracy and a bad contract, and have since been clawing my way
back up from nothing.
Stories are important to me, and I can appreciate most anything in
life if a good story can be made from it. Or at least a good laugh,
I don't read or write as much as I feel I should, I have more suits
than is probably reasonable, and I drink what I feel is exactly the
right amount of tea.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Started over from nothing. Doing okay now.
Working nights at a hotel, working days at an amateur theatre
company. Writing another play. Saving to go overseas.
I'm also looking into tailoring; I have experience in pattern
making and hand sewing, so that's a painful part out of the way
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling stories. Any story: verbal, written, anecdotal, pointless.
I write a little, and have had pieces published here and
Making a good cup of tea.
Knitting, but I can't crochet to save my life.
Fussing over trivial things (good grief, I'm an old lady).
Keeping my middle name a secret.
Being surprisingly warm.
Smelling nice (I am told this semi-regularly).
Backgammon (this is a lie).

Pretty much anything served to me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
At least one suit, for whatever occasion
Probably the Internet?
And a plot hole
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The stories behind everything. And death, actually. Not in a bad
Wait that answer wasn't funny. Great, what do I do now?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Games night with friends. Ticket-to-Ride, Resistance, Coup,
Werewolf, Channel A, Spaceteam, anything we can find that will
involve lots of yelling and laughter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I feel like funeral services is my calling. I had to turn down a
position as a mortician's assistant due to prior commitments once,
and I am looking at going back.
