OWLS: “Thankful” For the Creative Non-Fiction of Alida Nugent

owls

Here is the prompt for November:

Here at OWLS, we are pretty thankful that we are able to come together as a community and share a love and appreciation for anime and manga. This month we will be showcasing our appreciation by giving a shout out post to our favorite manga artists, creators, production companies, and writers who produced some of our favorite works. We will be discussing our favorite works by these creators and our reasons as to why we appreciate them.

For this month’s OWLS topic, “Thankful,” I’m going to discuss one of my favorite essayists and creative non-fiction writers, Alida Nugent.

One of the reasons as to why I enjoy her works is the quirky but blunt persona she presents in her writing style. In both of her works, she approaches life-impacting moments with humor and spunk.

She also has a similar mindset as me when it comes to certain topics such as college life, identity, and feminism. I admire her work and her writing style and because of it, I wish that someday I will be able to write and publish some of my personal life stories like her. According to my friends, they say I have some fun stories and also I have a lot of wisdom that needs to be shared with the younger generations.

I wrote some thoughts on two of her published work which you can check it out here:
