I joined in order to do some creative writing and some other blogging in the hope that I might get feedback so that I might improve my writing. It is a passion of mine and I could think of no other thing that I would prefer to do...besides maybe drink. But, that is neither here nor there. I recently graduated with a BA in English and am feeling pretty satisfied with myself at the moment. It took about 6 years to do; so, having that finally behind me is great a relief.

I've travelled a bit. Been to several countries in Europe, the Middle East, and I've seen a number of these 50 states. It's a big world and full of the good, the bad, and the ugly...just like in the stories I love to read.

I live in the Chicago area now and am quite sick of the traffic-- ready to move to the country and find some piece of mind. Well, that's me in a nutshell.

Cheers,

August

Note: Feel free to offer constructive criticism on any of my writing; I welcome it and promise not to be offended. I am here to "put myself out there." My wish is to be a good writer, however, I cannot do that without your help. If anything should strike you as poorly written, or curious, I would like to know. I will do my best to address the issue. Thank you for your patience and understanding—A.X.
