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?

The Writing Journey


I know a lot of people who have asked the question, "How does someone write?"

  1. Oh dear! Thank you so much for that awesome comment.

    We actually have a game plan on getting it published when we're done. But as two highschoolers we're low on funds.

    So we had this idea to once a month take applications (because we don't want just anyone being able to read our books and steal our ideas) and choose who we'll let buy a virtual copy of our book via e-mail.

    So yeah. ANYWAY. We really wanna get it published. I hope we can! :D

  2. Hey... I had a er... question. :)

    I'm writing a book -- and I'm looking for an editor. You might not want to help me... maybe you know someone who would?

    If you could reply on my blog... that'd be awesome.

    xx,

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.
