That awkward moment in a writer’s life when you have the urge to email a tiny country store in Vermont to ask whether or not they sell paprika
I’m gonna do it I’m gonna email them
I did the thing
THEY DON’T SELL PAPRIKA
GOD BLESS AUTHORS WHO CARE THIS MUCH ABOUT ACCURACY
Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
