Life isn’t meant to be qui­et. Life isn’t patient, it’s not easy, it’s not some­thing to be under­stood and set­tled for. Who you are and the life you make for your­self should be some­thing ever-chang­ing. Some­thing chaot­ic. You should be for­ev­er start­ing a riot with­in yourself.

The name fauxRI­OT came to me in 2009, when I was try­ing to decide on a name for a closed forum that would be a sort of dump­ing ground for all of my writ­ing. With dozens of projects in mind, and the want to exper­i­ment with how I wrote all of them, I knew I was look­ing at a riot wait­ing to hap­pen, but the dif­fer­ence was that it was fic­tion­al. Any­thing that got out of hand was only an imi­ta­tion, an almost con­trolled sort of chaos. A fauxRIOT.
