My name is Jessica, and I'm an aspiring novelist! If only I could get beyond the editing stage... anyway, this year (2012) is my eighth time participating in NaNo, and my second year serving as an ML, for the USA :: Iowa :: Cedar Rapids region. I previously attended the University of Hawaii in Hilo, and graduated in 2009 with a BA in Japanese Studies. I collect typewriters and hope someday to start my own typewriter repair shop.
My avatar displays my trusty Olympia SM-9, my main machine.
