35 Desiderata » Essays with topics like "Why Feminist and not Egalitarian?" and scraps that my writing is not complete without. Also stories that sound great but I don't have the energy to finish right now. Do not steal ideas; depending on how close I am to my death bed, I may be persuaded into letting you adopt one, but putting them up here doesn't mean I consent to having them taken.

4 Impostor Syndrome » You could probably make a passable rom com out of Cynthia Cyneburg's life, though truth be told, it feels much more like a Virginia Woolf stream-of-consciousness novel with tumltuous relationships and regret over past decisions. Or, the reflections of a female Byronic hero. No one ever reads this story but secretly it's my favorite.
