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: September Edition

Welcome to Beautiful People! We're back with a bunch of random questions to help you understand your characters better. But first, here's the 411 on Beautiful People...

What is Beautiful People?
Beautiful People is a blog meme hosted by myself and the ever-awesome Cait @ Paper Fury. Every month, we post ten questions to help you get to know your characters better. They can be elusive and enigmatic, but we hope every question we post brings you closer to the answers about your wonderful beautiful people (your characters). 

How do I join?
Just jump in! Snag the questions, post them on your blog, and come back to add your link! I also recommend checking out the posts of the other participants. It's a great way to make new friends.

Please also give Cait and I a link back--whether through a regular link, or these shiny blog buttons:

You can also check out our archive and our FAQ.

And now for the questions!

1. They’re in a crisis: who would they really like to see right now? 
2. Are they easy to get along with? 
3. Who was the last person they had a deep conversation with? 
4. They’re in the middle of a huge crowd of people: how do they feel? 
5. Do they believe in luck or miracles? 
6. Do they like and get along with their neighbours? 
7. If they could travel anywhere in the world, where would they go? 
8. How do they feel about their body? 
9. What is the cruelest thing someone has ever said to them? How did they react? 
0. What’s the kindest thing someone has ever said to them? How did they react?

Now go forth and answer these questions!

How beautiful he is.

How's your writing going?


  1. The Thor gif - cracking up over here. I had a ton of fun doing this month's questions! I mean, I usually have fun doing BP, but these ones somehow brought out some things I hadn't contemplated yet. Which is always awesome, you know.
    I used my secondary protagonist (who's either the villain, or just an anti-hero, depending on how you look at it.)
    Thanks again for doing this with Cait every month!

  2. Is there going to be an October edition?

    1. Yep! It's a little late, but it'll be out on the tenth! It's an introduce-us-to-your-book type thing. :)

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.
