Hi, my name’s Lori! Welcome to The Inky Saga, formerly known as Betwined Reads. What started as a blog where I could talk about books and writing gradually morphed into the lifestyle blog of a bookish 20-something-year-old introvert navigating her post-graduate life and trying to figure out her life online.

On The Inky Saga I document my creative life and share what I learn along the way. I see this blog as place where I share my hopes and dreams with others in the hopes of uplifting and inspiring them to also pursue their passions. At the same time, I keep it real by sharing my real-life times of struggle. No one’s life is perfect, and despite the optimism by which I try to live my life I don’t believe in sugarcoating things.

If you are interested in everything from books to writing to bullet journalling and learning about technology, side hustles, and developing small business, then this blog might be the place for you!
