I haven't written in quite some time, but I'm filled with nostalgia for the days when fantasy writing seemed like a valid lifestyle choice.

Welcome to the woods matey! *Lots of tiny if not slightly charred gremlins come out of the dense forest foliage and attach themselves to Matt's leg, giving it a great big hug* I should really teach the Gack Hack Foo's to stop that shouldn't I?
I had a look at your bio and I'm planning on doing something similar to what you're doing when I go to university, only I'm doing English Literature - I never had the patience with this programming lark, too many numbers addle my brain. Matthew B. Corley
replies: "Thanks for the welcoming! *eyes the gremlin hugging his leg nervously*Aye, creative writing is one of my greatest pleasures. Well, writing in general, that is! And I'm not the biggest fan of math and the like, but when I can apply it to something I am interested in (and therefore worthwhile), such as technology, then it is actually fun. If that makes much sense...Thanks for taking the time to check out my page. I hope you enjoy what you find."

You sure you're alive? [pokes with bargepole] Matthew B. Corley
replies: "*pinches self* Hhrrm, well... I can't be for sure. My neural functions seem to be intact. There is only one way to be sure, I suppose.*reads Leo Tolstoy...dies* Yeah, I -was- alive. Leo Tolstoy still slays me; if I were dead, this obviously wouldn't be the case."

Hrmn...Seems to me that you are more talented than I feared. I may be forced to marry you after all... To think, all it took to find you was a quick google search. Isn't life grand?
