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.

As an eternally curious person I enjoy learning more and more about the world around me, about the people in it, and about my own inner world. I spend a lot of my time exploring and asking questions.

I’ve found, that it’s not always easy to navigate this thing called life, but if we can do it together, and learn from each other, it makes the journey so much better. This is why I love to listen to podcasts, read, try different healing modalities, and talk to those people that are doing what they enjoy most.

I consider my blog posts to be a sort of journal, where I write about the things I’m learning about and processing, in hopes that the things I share will make their way to you in the exact moment that you need them – like the quote you read at the perfect time, or the picture that makes you smile when you need it most.

The Novel Turtle started out, simply put, as a way to help people find the creativity that I believe we all have inside of us. That’s why you’ll see, or hear, the question “What is your definition of creativity” in some of the interviews. To me, the word creativity is synonymous with the word potential. When we think about creativity we often think about painting, drawing, or doing crafts, but there are an infinite number of ways that we humans are creative each and every day. Our creativity, in whatever form it takes on, is our potential to create something.

My hope is that through the ways I express my creativity and my authentic self, I can help you explore your inner world and find those things that may be holding you back, help you find what makes you unique and wonderful, and encourage you to embrace your “weird” and use it to make the world a better place. If I can make you smile and feel less alone in the process, even better.

I’m not here to tell you what to think or how to live, or to pretend that I have it all figured out. My job is to plant a seed. It’s up to you to determine whether or not that seed is beneficial to you.
