note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th

A Novel, Part 2

Oh. My. Goodness.

I. Am. So. Stinking. Excited.

Ashley and I finished our novel. We finished it. In 51 days.

And the final wordcount is...72,926.

This was one of the best experiences of my life. I am really thrilled right now, in case you couldn't tell.

So, you may ask, now what?

Well... I'm not really sure, but I think I know. How about a break? A really nice, LONG break. Don't be surprised if I go AWOL (absent without leave). See you in a few months... ;)

  2. Hi Kylie,
    I've known about you for a while, like through Bluejane & Ashley's blogs. Occasionally I come and browse around...anyways, I guess this is your main blog currently. I've been reading through several of your posts. I think this is so awesome that you and Ashley have finished your book and such a high word count!! (well, to me it seems high because the highest I've done is 45k--which is not even a novel! At the time that I wrote that story, I didn't know that I was 5k away from a novel :)

    Anyways, hopefully I'll be hanging around your blogs more often.
    Hope you have a peaceful Sunday.

Comments make the world go 'round... or was that chocolate?

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
