about Margot Appleton

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”  –Henry David Thoreau, Walden


Margot Appleton is a publishing professional taking some time off to grow kale (and rhubarb), write fiction, and raise her first child.  She enjoys reading books of all shapes and sizes, cooking vegetables, and playing in the dirt.  Her short and long-form fiction and nonfiction has been published on her hard drive, in dusty file folders in her office, and in a variety of Composition notebooks lying around her house and in her car.

She lives in eastern Massachusetts, a short drive from Walden Pond, in a very small  antique house with her phenomenally handsome husband, their daughter Charlotte*, and dog Banjo.

*Charlotte is her middle name.

  1. Ah, to be deliberate and not just about making sure that the bills are paid. I like it! As one gets older, or more accurately, ‘old’, like me, it becomes even more important to not just drift through a life. We all make small and large choices each day, but figuring out whether these choices are actually taking you somewhere you want to go is at the heart of a deliberate life. Following your blog will be an inspiration!
