“If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” 

— Ray Bradbury

I do believe I might qualify, esteemed Mr Bradbury. Especially on the reading of dreadful dumb books and the wandering through the university library because the smell of musty books is one of the most comforting sensations I know.

And here I was thinking it was my tragic good looks ;)

I have a confession to make, one of those dumb confessions that I know you already know about. In 2008 (2008!!) you asked me to review Fariel, and for whatever reason, probably laziness, I didn't. I still have a copy of 2008!Fariel from when you emailed it to me, but I'm very interested in peer reviewing 2011!Fariel if you're interested in sending it to me :)

Same one as ever- :)

I don't even show my stuff to people anymore- easier that way ;)

I can, however, finally show you the extremely non-PG and in my own opinion Loltacular Best Spinoff Ever if you're interested :)
