11 Thoughts You Would Have As A Writer While Driving

So even though I do write for the Odyssey many non-fiction pieces (no duh, Maddie), I am a writer on my own terms of trying to write fictional pieces. Recently, I was just going for a drive in town when an idea for a story plot point for something I am writing came into my head so the rest of the drive to get to my destination was me having a conversation with myself about this specific plot point.

This has happened on a Tuesday as well as the due date for this article so let's hope that this is enough thoughts and things I said to myself.

1. *Idea comes to mind*

And suddenly, it was like a lightbulb went off.

2. THIS IS A GREAT IDEA!! But where would it go?

It's a major point so it needs a good place.

3. I could just use it as the ending...

Yeah that's probably the best place for this.

4. Wait...isn't that too angsty?

It's...it's literally death for this story.

5. This is literally a major plot point based off the universe I'm basing this off of.

And everyone pretty much cried in the movies at that, including me.

6. I could go with another option...

The option of "death" but it's more of fake death.

7. I'll just ask people to chose one or two.

One is fake death, two is real death for the story.

8. This is what a drive to Chipotle for dinner gets me.

A plot point idea and a burrito.

9. I got mostly one...

Okay thank you for that, people I asked. I didn't want to cry.

10. Got to love being a fiction writer.

You can write whatever (within reason) and sometimes kill off your characters and you'll want to cry about it.

11. Why is the car the place I always get my best idea?

That and the shower...

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
