I'm a total night owl, an extroverted introvert, a Friday the 13th baby, and a fan of the Oxford comma. I journal almost every day. I have two wiener dogs. They're small and crazy. Let's root for the underdog :)
I've been passionate about writing, since I was 7 years old and penned a 30 page "novel" in over-sized kid's handwriting. Now I mostly write non-fiction. I edited a book a few years back about vintage smut and now have another non-fiction book in the works.

I like helping people understand themselves better and am currently reading up on non-violent communication. I'd like to apply the NVC approach to different areas of my life and am contemplating how it might be part of a new career path.

General Dislikes: arrogance, meanness, bad attitudes, unnecessary conflict, political debate (particularly online debate), homophobes/racists/sexists, lack of empathy, know-it-alls, posturing
-People I care about

-Ideas for creative projects....I love making digital collages and thinking up new writing topics
Over analyzing...this is a vice, I know. You know you're an over-analyzer when you over-analyze your over-analyzing. I practice mindfulness as best I can and avoid over-burdening others with this mental noise.
I am married but open (with husband's support). He's totally cool with this and would not be involved. Not looking for polyamory. No judgment but not interested in men who are cheating as that goes against my consensual non monogamy philosophy.
