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.

Beautiful People: Couples Edition

Hello writerlings! Happy Valentine's Day! In honor of this holiday, we've whipped up a special edition of Beautiful People for you all that's focused on couples! Pick an OTP (one true pairing) from your WIP (work in progress) and you'll be good to go!

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 and why did they meet?
  2. What were their first impressions of each other?
  3. How would they prove their love for each other?
  4. What would be an ideal date?
  5. Is there something they emphatically disagree on?
  6. List 5 “food quirks” they know about each other. (Ex: how they take their coffee, if they’re allergic to something, etc….and feel free to mention other non-food quirks!)
  7. What’s one thing they know about each other that no one else does?
  8. What’s one thing that they keep a secret from each other?
  9. How would their lives be different without each other?
  10. Where do they each see this relationship going?

So how's your 2017 going? How's your February? Your Valentine's Day? How are you in general? How is your heart (at risk of sounding totally cheesy)? Tell me all. ♥
