Also, I have discovered that I like a good dose of melancholy in my stories along with some bittersweet hope, which probably shouldn't be all that surprising considering that one of my favorite movies is Lost in Translation. Obviously, this isn't the only type of story I read, but it's definitely the type I gravitate toward. It would also explain a lot of what I've written as well.
I seem to be writing a lot of gen these days. I am fond of gen. Gen is awesome.
