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 giveaway is over... and other stuff

I was hoping to do a vlog, but the time got away from me and I didn't have a chance. However, Fin and Georgie did put a vlog together, so you should go watch it! I'm basically writing here to announce the same thing they did: The Author's Giveaway is officially over. We'll be announcing the winners someday very soon, so keep your eyes open for that!

And now I shall add a few random notes to make this post more interesting.

First of all... this video is wonderful.

On a writing-related note, I've been replotting Avary's story, and I'm coming up with some great ideas. So excited. I love writing (when my characters cooperate, that is).

And, lastly, I got a haircut. Just a little trim, really, but much of my evening consisted of wandering aimlessly around the mall. If you saw a girl looking slightly dazed carrying a "Keep Calm and Rock Out" notebook... yeah, that was probably me. ;)

(In addition to a haircut, I also got a Pinterest. Yup, I caved. And... I like it a lot. Find me here.)

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.
