My Name is Jace, but I am better known as Jacie the Cat thanks to my internet prowls. I don't really write that much anymore, but I've made a point to do every Gauntlet competition, just to keep myself from getting rusty. I am 22 years old, and one of the very few males on the Beta Boards.
Aside from writing, I enjoy playing guitar and songwriting (despite the drawback of being unable to read music) as well as other means of story-telling such as being the anecdote machine in social settings, and telling fantastic lies to small children. EG: The canopener was invented 37 years before the can, George Washington lobbied to have Congress declare termites a type of gum disease, and Santa won't give you any presents if you leave soy milk and Kashi cereal bars out on Christmas.
