This guy didn’t look anything like I expected. I love when that happens.

Life List Inspiration from Go Mighty


Susan Hall is hanging in Afghanistan. No bigs.

-It’s been cool seeing who everyone’s favorite authors are with our #ThankAWriter project. Nathan thanked Hank’s favorite author, and Libby Nousen reminded me of one of my own childhood favorites.

– Well, now I kind of want to dye my hair blue.

– A playlist for your solo dance parties. (I’ve already done a test run on that last song.)

– Listen, girl. I am all about a plan. You’ll get on that plane eventually.

– Finally, a question: Is there anywhere in the U.S. where it’s legal to do this? Because let’s go outlaw if we have to.

Thanks, Joan Didion. And Gorgeous Books for You to Eat.

Surprise. Writing to Joan Didion was daunting. These two paragraphs have twenty unnecessary words between them. Perhaps I should have just written “Thank you.” on a postcard. Ah well.

Since Nathan and I launched the #ThankAWriter project, Penguin Classics has offered to give the first six of their new Penguin Drop Caps series to one lucky bibliophile.

I want these. I can almost smell the paper. The drop caps were designed by Jessica Hische, who happens to be an acquaintance, so this makes me extra happy. Yay, Jessica! You do cool stuff.

If you like books and you’d like to enter, here’s all you have to do:

1) If you haven’t already, sign in on Go Mighty.

2) Create a life list goal of thanking authors. (Here’s mine.)

3) Every time you write a thank you note, post a photo or the text on Go Mighty with the tag #ThankAWriter.

We’ll enter your name once for every note you write. This is our second week of a five-week project, so dig out your stationery and get to it. It will make you happy.

So. I just? … want to be less sober than I am right now.

San Francisco can be exhausting.
