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?

Beautiful People - July Edition

Hi all! It's that time again--Beautiful People is here!

Beautiful People is a blog meme for writers hosted by Cait @ Notebook Sisters and myself. It's designed for you to get to know your characters!

The way this works is, every month we post a list of ten questions for you to answer about your characters. If you'd like to participate, simply choose the lucky character of your choice, answer the questions about them, and post it up on your blog. (If you'd like to use them as a private resource, that's acceptable as well, but the primary design of this is a link-up.) The linky is down below for you to sign. And it makes it extra lovely if you go around and meet other participants of the meme by commenting!

Please link back using the buttons below:

And now, this month's questions. Special thanks to Arende, Kelly, and Ashley G. for submitting them, as well as for question #10!

1) What’s their favourite food? (Bonus: favourite flavor of chocolate!) 
2) What do they absolutely hate? 
3) What do they enjoy learning about? 
4) Who is the most influential person in their life? 
5) What is their childhood fear? 
6) What is something they have always secretly dreamed of doing, but thought impossible? 
7) What is something he is impractically afraid of? 
8) Are they a night owl or morning person? 
9) Do they say everything that pops into their head, or leave a lot unsaid? 
10) What are their nervous habits?

And thus, we kick off the second link up of BP! Go on, go answer! I'm so excited to read all your posts! ^‿^


  1. Writing my post right now, I love this link-up :)

  2. May I join in? I haven't signed up or anything, but I would like to do this. :-)

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.
