Writing fiction is another urge of mine that fills in the cracks of my free time. I have no aspirations to become a full-time writer, but ideas keep popping up involuntarily when I take showers and lie in bed at night. I read regularly and can be stalked on my Goodreads profile. I currently have some short stories to share, and descriptions of some works in progress (complete with Markov chain samples).
