This blog is for those of you who wish to be the victims of my various literary endevours. I named the blog "Pied Beauty" because I am sick of being told that things I think are beautiful--things I know are beautiful--are not. This is one of my pet pieves. I have many, many more, and I will happily share all of them with you on this blog. That is, if I ever make the blog open to anyone but myself, which, given my propensity towards writer's block, is a matter of some doubt. Welcome to my blog site!
