"I'm not saying it's not well written I'm saying no one will buy it"
-important literary agent dude
In celebration of the literary loser that I am I have set up a big cartel store selling handmade copies of my weird not novels!
Currently up for grabs is my first not novel, Christ the Wolf! However, there are 3 more coming soon (2 not-novels and 1 set of short stories) so like watch this space yeah?
Are you excited? I'm excited!

This is the most cliche autumn outfit but I am very pro seasonal outfit scripts so hey. Also being a Syrian ootd blogger is slightly bizarre considering what the most ahem prominent image of Syria has been in the past few days. I'm writing my PHD (partially) on Syrian internet culture so I should have something slightly more insightful to say. But I don't. Because I hate everything. Here's an article on donating if you live in my hometown and here is a nationwide one if you do not. Please donate, if you like my shitty blog think of all the non shitty awesome things my fellow Syrians are capable of. Please.

An end of august imitation of the season in remembrance of when I had the whole of the virgin suicides memorised my heart, posted a week later, in early september so any in sight in terms of space or place or even basic relevance is lost. An irrelevent ootd in short.
It seems I am too swarthy for summer, perhaps autumn will be kinder.
