What's Good for Persona Paper?

It's been over a year since I wrote last, and ironically, my last post was about how nice it was that people were still posting here (after payment stopped). Well, it is nice, and people are still posting, so I might as well be one of them. I've actually c

Hi AliCat! I don't know if you're looking for any new venues or not, but I do know Daily Voice News is looking for writers to write about their favorite TV shows on a regular basis. I thought of you because your recaps are always so interesting and thorough. I just wanted to mention it to you. : )
