What The Novel Turtle is All About

Lori Frye, a.k.a. The Novel Turtle

Hi!!! I’m Lori Frye, the creator of The Novel Turtle. I’m all about having fun, while working to be the best, most authentic version of myself that I can possibly be, and I’d like to invite you to join me on that journey. My story is constantly unfolding and shifting, and I take the lessons I’m learning and pass them on to you – in hopes that they can help you along the way.

The goal of this website is: 1) to help you explore your inner world and find those things that may be holding you back, 2) to help you find what makes you unique and wonderful, and 3) to encourage you to embrace your “weird” and use it to make the world a better place.

I also like to call myself a planter of seeds. Through what I do, I am planting seeds of ideas. It’s not my place to decide whether or not those seeds will be beneficial to you. That’s up to you. Something I write may help you discover something about yourself, or within yourself. It may lead you to make a change in your life. Or you may read it and move on. Everyone is different, and what we each need in the moment is different. I’ve read things that have instantly impacted me in a great way, and others that haven’t. There are also those things that seem to have had no effect, but later, sometimes many years later, the words came back to me just when I needed them the most. That is my hope…that the things I create will be there exactly when you need them.

I’m not here to tell you how to live your life, but rather to pass along some ideas that have helped me, and will hopefully help you as well. Through my blog posts and emails, I humbly place myself in the position of guide, and fellow traveler through this thing called life.

In everything I do, I want to give people a smile and encourage others to do the same. This is one of the reasons that I do the giveaways I do, that I send out cards and snail mail to people, and why I partner with organizations like The Love Card.
