My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the South, but I don't have an accent. In fact, probably most Southern stereotypes don't apply to me. Well, I guess I hold doors for people. And love grits. Wait, is holding doors a Southern thing? I feel like I should know this.

My idea of a good time is having about a dozen people over, buying an embarrassing quantity of bourbon (or, sure, any of the lesser boozes), and playing some board/party games. Have you played Telestrations? You should play Telestrations.

I will defend the finale of How I Met Your Mother to the death. On what is probably not an unrelated note, literally everybody in my life has assured me that I am Ted Mosby. Which is fair.

I'm into people who take chances. People who get the value of generosity. People who are cynical when it's funny, but willing to be vulnerable when it really counts. People who like the arts. I am not into people who are mean. Simple, but true.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved to New York late last year, to be closer to the literary scene and also to live in a place where I can get all my meals, laundry, pet food, and alcohol delivered to my apartment. At the moment I'm at a law office in Midtown to pay the bills, but in my free time I try to make it to readings and other artsy stuff. I recently finished a novel manuscript, and I'm on the hunt for an agent. I also write short stories and have a few of those published. Next year I'm trying to get into an MFA program (so I can work in publishing/teach college, in the long run), but if that doesn't work out I'd also like to do the NYC Teaching Fellows program.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
First drafts. Balderdash. Recalling names of albums, including ones I've never owned. Listening to people talk about their day and actually being interested. Making fun of bad movies. Karaoke. Not taking shit seriously. Taking shit seriously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: anything that tells a good story in a beautiful way. The Time Traveler's Wife is close to my favorite book—think of me what you will! The Goldfinch was pretty amazing, too.

I like movies that know how to be both funny and heartbreaking. I usually end up preferring indie movies, but I'm not a snob about it. It just kind of shakes out that way. My favorite is Beasts of the Southern Wild, but The Lego Movie was amazing, too.

My mom raised me on The Beatles and John Denver, and later I raised myself on mid-90s alt rock and second-wave punk. So shockingly I'm really into guitars and passionately against anything with synthesizers. Autotune drives very small knives into my heart. The Head and The Heart or The Avett Brothers are good examples of where I'm at.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to make things better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
probably writing, because that's where I am most nights. It's not really the sort of career choice you only half commit to.

When I have the time, I'm hunting down some good, interesting bars. (KGB, anyone? Pete's Candy Store?) Or seeing a movie. Or going to something artsy. I definitely want to see a Broadway show ASAP. Alternatively, I'm down for takeout and Netflix pretty much whenever.
