Call me Jonni. I’m sixteen, and I live in a wholly unremarkable slice of American suburbia. I have an unfortunate tendency toward procrastination and a penchant for clockwork, calliopes, & other anachronisms.
Reading and writing have always gone together for me. I adore mythology, folklore, all that sort of thing, but I tend to ramble all around the literary/genre spectrum. As far as music goes, I’m into cabaret, showtunes, gypsy music, often blended with rock or punkish elements, but I'm also quite open minded.
That's it for now, I suppose. I'm terrible at this kind of thing -- describing myself & whatnot. Now for a few of my favorite things:
