It was a dark and stormy night. 

I was slaving away on my stupid ten-page philosophical essay, sobbing over my keyboard as a mournful piano melody played on repeat thirty-two times through my headphones. You may ask, why am I sobbing? Well, dear reader, let me tell you that this paper was due at 11:59 that night. The clock struck eleven, and then the panic set in--I was only three pages in... 

Whew, buddy, I’ll tell you right now that never happened. Maybe you knew, maybe you didn’t. Either way, it was a story. A story that I hope conjured up some response in your mind. Perhaps you were able to relate (we’ve all been there), or maybe you pitied me, or maybe you thought “oh man, she’s screwed.” 

If what I wrote made you feel anything, that’s the reason why I love writing. In a way, it’s like magic; it can conjure up emotions and take you to other worlds. It’s my favorite escape. However, you can’t escape school writing assignments, and that’s where I might be able to lend a helping hand. Whether you’re in the stage of brainstorming or fine-tuning or anywhere in-between, I would be more than glad to help you. As a peer consultant, I want to help you become a pretty gosh-darn confident writer. 

In my free time, you can find me playing some indie psychological horror game, laughing at a dumb pun, or daydreaming about some fantasy novel.
