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.

Beautiful People: September Edition

Hello, writerlings! It's almost fall. Almost NaNo! And Cait and I are back again with even more fantabulous writerly questions for you to answer about your characters!

But first...

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:

And now for the questions!

  1. How did you come up with this character?
  2. Have they ever been starving? Why? And what did they eat to break the fast?
  3. Do they have a talent or skill that they’re proud of?
  4. List 3 things that would make them lose their temper.
  5. What is their favorite type of weather? Least favorite?
  6. What is their Hogwarts house and/or MBTI personality?
  7. Are they more likely to worry about present problems, or freak out about the unknown future?
  8. What is their favorite thing to drink?
  9. What is their favorite color? Least favorite?
  10. What is a book that changed their life?

So what are you up to, fellow bloggers? What are you writing? What are you reading? What (or who, mwahaha) are you head-over-heels in love with? Tell me everything?


  1. I'll have to do this for my NaNo protagonists. I'm suddenly reminded that NaNo is practically tomorrow. Yay!

  2. This was fun, I enjoyed doing it and added a button to your this on my blog.

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.
