I started writing because my parents though I was productive if I was typing away on the computer, which meant I could look like I was doing homework and studying. Now I write because I don't know what else to do. Also, if I become a writer, I can live in my pajamas.
Not that I would live in my pajamas. But it would be wonderful to have that option.
I started in 2007 in the South Bay region, and then was in the East Bay for 2008 and 2009. In 2010, I moved back to the SF Peninsula, and I started as ML for the region in 2011. Since then, my chicken hat has gained a cult following (I always wear my chicken hat to NaNo events), and my laptop keyboard has nearly died from overuse. I also help run the @NaNoWordSprints twitter feed. Hi!
