2006: Working on The Rules for Hearts, also minicomics. Helped gut a house in New Orleans. Acquired Snag.
Had braces. Went to my first BG Literary retreat. Had a LiveJournal, username “thisisnotanlj.”

Plus some comics which may also end up with different titles than their working titles therefore ditto. Had an essay published inÂ The V-Word.Â Went to my tenth BG Literary retreat.
