"Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your little scribbler's heart, leave out the boring bits and kill you darlings."
-Stephen King, On Writing
Thank you for checking out my profile!
I'm Skylar Black, a twenty-something tea fanatic who is usually unhealthily obsessed with one book or another. I am also:
- A drinker of fine wine 🍷
- A climate scientist 👩🔬
- An unenthusiastic jogger 🏃♀️
- But very enthusiastic footballer ⚽️
Somewhere along the line my love for reading became a love for writing, so here I am!
