Hi! Welcome to my raven. Yes, you heard that right. This is my raven. Or at least it is if you listen to the Mad Hatter in Lewis Caroll's Alice's Adventures inWonderland.
But since you neither resemble Alice nor look lost, I'll simply call this my writing desk. Go ahead and look over my shoulder to see what I've been up to. You can also offer some friendly comments because there's nothing I enjoy more than hearing from readers.
Without further ado, I present to you...
