A writer’s guide to flying A few days ago I set off for my first visit to the great and beautiful west of Canada from Toronto, Ontario. It was somewhat of a spontaneous flight, having only decided it and booked it the day before. For those who know me on a more personal level, this …
Hello! I am Michelle, also known as 221Btls on Archive of Our Own and Tumblr. Just the fact that I am guest blogging is a direct example of why I love writing. It would be difficult to pull from each other the joys of my newest hobby/passion/obsession. The act of writing itself is such a …
