The Daily Life of a Compulsive Writer

About July 7, 2010

Hi! My name’s Kat… at least for the purposes of this blog. I’m currently an IB Junior, which means I’m hard working, stubborn, and more than a little bit insane.

I’m also a fire-breathing liberal who supports the crazy notion that all people should be treated fairly, no matter what race, sexual orientation, gender, creed, or anything I missed. This brings me at odds with a lot of other groups, as you can imagine. I’m also the kind of girl who gets hot and bothered about every social injustice she comes across, so… yeah. Rants it is.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to be an author. When I’m not surfing the internet or doing my IB homework, I’m probably typing like mad or scribbling in one of my many notebooks. This blog, I figured, was a good way to send my writing out into the world, even if it is mostly rants and musings about writing. It’s also a handy excuse to not actually do the aforementioned writing or homework.

So in summary, I’m a liberal, tree-hugging, opinionated teenager who is going to be a writer some day even if it kills her. Any questions?

Comment Policy

Anyway, I’ll probably post on religion, politics, news, books, writing… maybe even school. Just warning you now, I’m an atheist and strong left-leaner, which means not everyone’s going to agree with what I have to say. There are three options, if that unfortunate reader is you.

1. Make rude and trollish comments that really just back up my point.

2. Don’t read it. I’m not holding a gun to your head. There’s like, millions of blogs out there. Find someone else.

3. Have a civilized discussion. I’m fairly open minded. I’ll listen to you. Just don’t expect me to convert to your way of thinking.

All settled? Well, then, good luck!
