Facundia Procrastinatae

how not to be a writer

Sonia Ana Miller
Once upon a time, a little girl read a book and didn't like the ending. She snuck off with her father's typewriter and rewrote the book. When she was done, she made up another tale, this one entirely her own, because why should she read books that didn't suit her? Today, having returned the typewriter, the wordprocesser and the computer to her father, she sits at her laptop, thinking up stories and hopes that they will suit others.

Yeah, so, while this little bio is absolutely charming, it is a bit over the top, don't you think? A bit saccharine? Yeah, I thought so. Watch this space as I come up with something better.

Actually, don't watch this space. Add it to your RSS feed, friend it, recommend it, whatever, but do something a bit more constructive than just staring slack-jawed at this page. Thanks.
