I have written about Sports, Politics, Literature, Time Travel, Buses, Sex, Human Frailty. I sometimes write topical haikus, sonnets, lists, cartoons, advice columns, first-person rants, satires. I used to make cat stickers say dirty things to each other. I get offered lots of free writing gigs and some paid ones. Ben made me promise to take more paid ones. But please pitch me as you will.
