Chunklet #1: Who are you?
Name: (what is your primary identity?) Seth Leggett; my first name is really Andy—and some people still call me that—but I wanted a way to honor my grandfather, who I don’t remember, as we share the same middle name, but I didn’t want to be associated with that annoying Joseph character at my school. Plus, Seth is a cool name.
Nickname(s): (any schizophrenia in your life?) Seth is a nickname, I guess, as is Andy.
Age: (ain't nothin' but a #) I’ll be 18 in a couple of days.
Birthday: (on this day, Person X was born, X = YOU) January 10, 1988—I am just barely a child of the ‘80s.
Sex: (Gender, Male, Female, or otherwise) Transexual
Occupation: (what do you do?) Student, poet, fiction writer, senior editor of my school literary magazine
Location: (geographic location preferred, we know you're on the net, in your chair, in front of your computer. you can be clever in other ways if you will, though) Sacramento, California, right across the Americna River from the University of California
Language(s): (what language(s) do you speak / write) Fluent in English, obviously; am mostly fluent in Italian, partially fluent in French, with an interest in Hungarian; and I live in California, so it’s pretty much a given that I know some Spanish.
Primary artistic focus(foci): (what do you create?) Poetry, fiction, pastel drawings, with musical and critical aspirations
Blab a bit: (we all yap) There hasn’t been a post since March of last year—has this place been abandoned?

Chunklet #3: In 4 sentences, complete this story.
Once upon a time, there was a mouse who lived in the cupboard of a castle overlooking the ocean. The castle’s inhabitants were very mean to the mouse, so he prayed to his primeval god, who punctually sent a tidal wave to crush the castle and kill all the big meanie inhabitants, sparing only the mouse.
And in the end, it was all alright after all.
