So I made this because of this.
Feel free to use if you are planning on seducing a writer. Or writer-like person. Or anyone, really.
I thought, I wonder if anyone’s made one, yet. So I looked, and there it was. I love it when things move at the speed of internet.
The internet is a magical place, inhabited by wizards.
