• Who am I?

    I am Qrystal; or at least, that's my dot-name! Har har. (My name is really Crystal, but that's not as internet-searchable; hence, switching the C for the little-used letter Q.)

    I am here because I enjoy writing. I do this mostly for myself, but I also have a passion for helping others learn things from the things I write. Now that I am done my Ph.D. in Physics, I am stepping away from academic research so that I can indulge in some creative ways to share my knowledge and inspire the appreciation of scientific thinking in others. I am also working as a tutor, which is one of the jobs I've most enjoyed doing in my life so far.

    I hope to add to this list eventually, as I find more sites like the one below!  Suggestions are welcome!

    The Purdue University Online Writing Lab seems to have a lot of valuable resources, including a fantastic Verb Tense Chart to help distinguish between various verb tenses.  I had learned many of these terms in Latin classes in highschool, but refreshing them in my mind has given me renewed confidence.  Credit for finding and sharing this site goes to One Step Forward, a blog encouraging us to “Get off of the couch and write, better!”
