Seeking new friends

Hello, all!

I've been on LJ for over ten years, and over those years I've seen plenty of fluctuations in my friends list as people come and go. So here I am, looking for some new friends!

About me: My name is Katie and I'm 34 years old. I'm a professional writer as well as an on-again, off-again teacher of writing (currently off: I just finished teaching a five-week mini-course in fiction writing, and I won't be teaching again until the fall). I live in Philadelphia, but I grew up in upstate New York. My girlfriend and I have been together for fourteen years--we have two cats and live together in a 200-year-old house. I read a lot and write a lot; my other interests include cooking, baking, gardening, hiking, photography, bird watching and otherwise being an amateur naturalist, and baseball. I am a tea-drinker, an art-lover, a feminist, a literature snob, an environmentalist, an introvert. This is me:

Yours truly


About my journal: I started my LJ as a reading journal back in 2001, and to this day I still often post about books I'm reading. Sometimes these book posts are closer to being formal reviews; other times they're just short updates on what I'm thinking or feeling about a book at that particular moment. But it's not just about books--I also post about food, my garden, writing, teaching, and little day-to-day details. There are often photographs. I tend to post once or twice a week. I love to use my LJ as a place to record small pleasures and little everyday beauties, and the tone of my posts is usually fairly positive. I don't have a ton of drama or excitement in my life, so if you're looking for that you should probably look elsewhere.

I'd like to meet some thoughtful, interesting people, and I care more about whether or not we can connect with each other than I do about your age, sex, gender, profession, location, etc, etc. Bonus points to anyone who is willing to get nerdy about books with me. I don't expect friends to comment on every single post I make, but I like to have at least a little bit of interaction. I'm not a world champion commenter myself, but I do make an effort.

My journal is mostly friends-only at the moment, but I will be happy to add anyone who's interested in checking it out. I tend to remove people from my friends list if I feel like no personal connection has developed between us, and I will not be bothered if you do the same!
