Hullo, Hullo Can't Post

Hi All,

I'm a 17-year-old from Philadelphia who happens to love poetry. I also love girls with strange eyes and anything peanut butter flavored.

I've been lurking around the forums and have already been helped by many of you, even though you don't know it. So now I have made myself visible, and hope to be an active, contributing member of the Speakeasy.

(Is there any smooth way to end an introduction? I can't seem to think of any. Oh well.)

Well thank you. I hope so too, and have little doubt that I will - who doesn't learn at least a few things about writing every time he or she has a conversation about writing?

It's all nestles' fault for discontinuing wonderballs anyway. Kids need unanswered questions about their food, and peanutty Russian Roulette is all we have to offer them.
I'm probably not in the right forum for this, but, anyone reading anything interesting? Anyone interested in looking at each others work?
In way of introductions I'm nineteen and like writing flash fiction, poetry and parodys of Ashlee Simpson songs (ex. Pieces of Meat).

Hey there...

No workshopping, but you can scroll down to find out what everyone recommends in the How Was Your Reading Day? section.

(This past year, the two books I felt compelled to re-read, immediately, were The Contortionist's Handbook, by Craig Clevenger, and Remainder, by Tom McCarthy...)
