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

Beautiful People is a blog meme started in March of 2011 by Georgie Penn and myself. It went on hiatus in 2012 and as of June 2014, started up again with a new co-host: Cait @ Paper Fury, who helped me run it until 2018.

Beautiful People, often abbreviated by me to BP, was a blog meme designed for you to get to know your characters. Every month, we posted ten questions for you to answer about your characters. If you wanted to participate, you'd simply choose the lucky character of your choice, answer the questions about them, and post it up on your blog. You were also welcome to use the questions as a private character development resource as well. While Beautiful People is no longer running, we have quite an extensive archive of questions, which is still available for your use. Enjoy!
