Greetings and salutations
That was my best Christian Slater in "Heathers" text impersonation.
I'm a writer from eastern Kentucky that pays the bills by slinging words for the local newspaper. I became a Palahniuk fan around 1999 or 2000 after reading Invisible Monsters. Palahniuk's unique style and subject matter, particularly in Survivor, got me excited about writing fiction again. I've landed a decent amount of publications in some pretty cool places and am currently putting together my second collection of short stories.
After working as a journalist for a few years, I was accepted to gradate school and went on to earn an MFA in writing in 2007. I'm back in news again, but I hope to land a job teaching writing at the college level.
I don't remember when I found this site, but I've been a visitor for quite some time. Picked up Postcards From the Future when it first came out.
Along with being a fan of Chuck, I am also a huge fan of Hubert Selby, Jr., Harry Crews, and Bret Easton Ellis.
The music of Nick Cave makes my ears and brain happy, and I also dig his two novels.
Okay, there's some random information for the manila folders.
Anyway, hope to meet some cool folks on here and get involved in various discussions on every topic under the e-sun.
