About meNot a Yankee.
Not a Rebel.

A stuck in the middle of it type person. (Read: Born and Raised within 50 miles of Washington, DC.)

Scribbler, reader (duh), thinker.
(Website links to my blog designed to offer insights to other writers. Its all opinions.)

Outside of that, talk to me to find out more.

Reading threads:
2016 -- Goals (25 books read, minimum 10 physical, minimum 1 nonfiction)
2017 -- Goals listed in thread now. :)

About my libraryMy physical library started as merely a collection of fiction books and a few non-fiction that were interesting to me. Then, I determined that I wanted to try to write that next great novel.

This changed the complexion of the physical library. I can honestly break things down to writing reference, research subjects and fascinations, and fiction. My catalog consists of what I physcially own, save two collections: Read but not owned (library books, for the most part) and No Longer in Library (books I got rid of because they just didn't fit my idea of good books.) I have no e-reader at this time, so none of these books are digital, though I do have audio books listed. If/When things change, so will the library.

Just when I think I am done, I am finding books that aren't cataloged that I thought I had gotten.

Tagging pattern (usually):
Broad Category/Genre, Narrowed content, {series, place in series If applicable}, binding (Paper or not), if not read
