Hello World!

Now that I got that programming meme out of the way, let me talk a little about myself. I love daydreaming about storytelling and worldbuilding; the nitty-gritty of actually putting words on a blank screen, not so much. This makes TV Tropes perfect for me.

I created a TV Tropes account because I want to help go thru the backlog in the Trope Repair Shop. Cleaning up any minor problems I find is also a bonus. I probably will not write any new work pages anytime soon.
