Well. Huh. I'm a little stumped. Everything and nothing, I guess.

A few, not mutually exclusive, reasons:
- I love performing, and my writing is what I have to perform
- reading out loud to people gives me a much better sense of what works and what doesn't
- scheduling readings gives me a kick in the ass to get new stuff done
