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: June Edition

Happy June, writerlings! We're back again with another Beautiful People. Instead of a themed version, we're going to just do a random batch of questions. I hope you enjoy them! 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 to the questions!

  1. What’s their favorite place they’ve ever visited?
  2. What’s one mistake they made that they learned from?
  3. What was their favorite subject in school? Or favorite thing to learn about?
  4. What’s their favorite flower/growing thing?
  5. Have they ever made someone cry? What happened?
  6. Would you consider them a reliable or unreliable narrator?
  7. What do they dream about at night?
  8. They’ve gone out for a “special meal.” What would they eat?
  9. Do they have any distinguishing or unique talents?
  10. What’s at least one thing they want to do before they die?

How's it going, everyone? What are you writing right now? What character are you hopelessly in love with (either your own or someone else's)? What are you most excited for this summer (or whichever season it is for you)?
