Tonight I’ll be discussing IF YOU’RE OUT THERE on Twitter, alongside my 2019 debut friends for our last chat before the new year—a.k.a. THE YEAR OUR BOOKS BECOME BOOKS! Tweeting still makes me awkward, but I’ll try to compensate with fun GIFs. (I love GIFs! I am basically your mom who just discovered GIFs!) 8pm. Be there. Just follow the #novel19s hashtag. 🥳 . . . #authorsofinstagram #twitterchat #GIFs #ifyoureoutthere #writersofig #amwriting #bookstagram #yabookstagram #yalovin #yalit #ireadya #bookstagrammer #class2k19books #balzerandbray #epicreads #joinus
#Repost (@get_repost ) ・・・ Dear Pappa, Naina turned six today, you know. I was browsing through birthday cards in the shop when one caught my eye- Not all heroes wear capes and not all angels have wings. Something in it hit home. Maybe because it reminded me of you. Of how you have been my hero all these years. And how I never told you so. Never felt the need to do so. Every year, when the bravery medals were given in the parades they showed on television, Ma would stare at the ceiling, throat bobbing, afraid to cry in front of me. Or maybe no tears came out anymore. When I asked her at first, why you weren't there with those brave men, she told me that your bravery was a secret. That you and everything you had been was a big secret, and being the good girl I was, I had to keep it safe. I would nod numbly and imagine you getting the medal instead, rising up when your name was called, marching proudly to the podium. I would always be the one to clap the loudest and hug you the hardest when you returned. In my dreams, Ma would be laughing once more, too. Later, she'd tell me among other things, how you were never supposed to be the hero. To her, you were the person she relied on, whose loss shattered her; to the people you knew, you were a travelling salesman; to those who actually knew you, you were the man with the double identity. But for me, you were the reason I waited for the summers, the laugh I heard when I was sad and the pat on the shoulder I felt when I was lonely, the person who made the four walls feel like home. You never donned the uniform, true, but to me, Pappa, you are as much of a hero as those who did. You know, I realized you were my hero the day that I had to tell Naina that her treatment wasn't working. Tell me, Pappa, how could you stop those tears from falling? Did you, too, look up and count to ten because you couldn't let the other person see you cry? Every time I look at your photo, Pappa, I see in you a hero. Also, I miss you. And I am proud of you. Yours, Alisha. #terriblytinytales #ttt #microfiction #wordporn #words #wordgasm #writer #author #poet #poem #writing #amwriting #writersofinstagram
On the blog today! Cutting out visual description from your #picturebook manuscripts!
When your editor calls to say she is blown away by your new book, it’s the best one yet and doesn’t require big structural editing, and so you have a little cry of relief mingled with joy before celebrating with a mince pie ❤️📚❤️📚 * * * #authorlife #newbook #amwriting #alexbrown #apostcardfromitaly #postcardfromitaly #book #authormoments #thisauthorlife #joy #relief #mincepie #celebration #editing #authorsofig #authortalk #writingcommunity #writingofig #gratitude
You have your own escape. Cherish it. For when you feel like you can't go on and want to be still and pause time, you have your escape. When your thoughts are a mess and you don't know what's happening and you either worry too much or don't care at all; or for when it feels like a futile exercise, there are the times you will be reminded of why the good is and why the good shall be your escape, but until then, keep a part of you ahead of you- to learn from what you experience, and from what you want to forget; to remember and keep dear to you. Until then, cherish you. ★ ★ This is a piece for reminding you that depression will be a fight but it will be your successful fight, even if in the smallest of ways. Let's hope for a #Happier2019 and #nurtureselflove in your own little ways. You aren't alone in this 🌹 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - [...] #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writer #writerscommunity #amwriting #positivequotes #writerscorner #poetry #love #poetsofinstagram #words #quotes #wordporn #spilledink #spokenword #creativewriting #travelwriter #runawaywriters #quoteoftheday #thoughts #literature #passion #poetic #mood #instawriter #writersnetwork #writerssociety [...]

In life we ask ourselves many questions that may seem foolish or may not have answers, but some of these questions can feed our imagination.

House of Cards ________________________ There are mornings when sadness runs like water from the shower that invites my entrance, while l summon courage from the towel on the bathroom floor ______________________________ Laying in my bed quietly listening to the sound it makes, like rain washing memories from our home that dissolved the way cotton candy does on my tongue __________________________ Waiting for the flood to stop so I can feel something other than sadness coating my skin like molasses with the invisible wounds I’ll dress myself in _____________________________ The grit of life sticking to flesh like feathers to tree sap, as I attempt relentlessly to cleanse myself of impurities, only hope runs down the drain ____________________________ There was a time we carried daydreams in our heart cage, planted future like seeds between our ribs, naively anticipating harvest before our growth _______________________________ We were lost within the sweetest reverie, our house of cards built upon shifting sand with no windows for us to anticipate the hurricane forming on the horizon __________________ Sabrina Escorcio December 2018 ___________________ Photo credit to MashaMitovich #poem #poet #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetryporn #poetryisnotdead #tumblrpoets #writersofinstagram #wordgasm #spilledink #creativewriting #writerscommunity #igwriters #depression #mentalhealth #mentalillness #poemsporn #writersofig #igpoetry #torontopoet #poetssociety #micropoetry #wordsmith #amwriting #instapoet #instapoetry #love #divorce #thecultivatedfool
Do you create boundaries for your writing? Gotta have some boundaries, right? My boundaries center on not creating characters solely for the purpose of presenting or introducing something that shouldn’t be there in the first place.

Lemons Genre: Psychological Thriller ✨✨WINNER FIRST PLACE EROTIC FICTION✨✨ 💫Texas Authors Association💫 ✫*¨*AMAZON*¨`*☆ http://myBook.to/FracturedWings ★Synopsis★ Just when the time has come to spread your wings and fly on your own, life has other plans and anchors you to the ground... Alex Sutherland has lived a charmed, small town life, which has been perfectly mapped out. As a recently engaged law school graduate, she is on the cusp of starting her new life and career in the big city. However, her carefully laid out plan is instantly halted when she is attacked while out for a run on the last day at her childhood home. Although her physical wounds have healed, she is plagued with constant nightmares and recurring memories of the brutality. At her lowest moment, Alex finds her strongest support from Anthony Gabrielli, the FBI agent in charge of her case. Through his subtle encouragement, she takes steps to reclaiming her prior self, even though her assailant has not been caught. When she discovers she is still being targeted, she decides to face her fears and becomes determined to find out what lurks in the shadows. When the evil is revealed and plays out like an apocalyptic crumbling of her sweet home town, will Alex be unable to survive the disastrous outcome, or have the strength to break free so she may finally soar on her own terms? #writingcommunity #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writer #erotica #thriller #psychologicalthriller #kindle #ebook #authors #amwriting #SupportIndieAuthors #SupportIA #instabook #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #authosofig
Reading Faces (a spontaneous poem) all character for me starts in the face. What is behind the eyes? What kinda smile? How well do they present themselves? We have evolved to read the stories in each other's faces. So when i'm taking a photo or writing a poem that's where the character comes from. .... I had a lot of fun taking photos of @yogahouseboerne (my forever muse) check out her stories and upcoming pics to see what we made.
Estoy harto de tener que levantarme de la cama encender las noticias y ver como otra mujer es asesinada a manos de un hombre. No es justo. Nunca voy a llegar a entender como los hombres llegan a poder tocar a una mujer si sun consentimiento. Porque ellas no quieren tus halagos, quieren respeto. Ese respeto que tu como hombre tienes volviendo a las 4 de la mañana sin que te toquen un pelo hasta que llegues a casa. Ese es el respeto que piden. Y no pidáis encima que lo agradezcan. Porque tanto yo como tú somos iguales. Y ese respeto viene implicito en la sociedad. No me ofende que me metan en el saco de que los hombres seamos "todos" unos violadores. Lo que me ofende es que hoy por hoy le demos mas importancia a nuestra dignidad que a toda esa gente que la han matado hombre despues de abusar de ellas. Eso es lo que me ofende. Despertemos de una vez, porque si no cambiamos ya, esto va a ir pero. No somos nada sin las mujeres y obviamente las mujeres sin hombre tambien. Pero ese no es el caso. Porque las que mueren a manos de hombres son ellas, no nosotros. Me considero feminista siendo hombre y estoy orgulloso de ello. Es nuestro turno para cambiar esto. JUNTXS, hombres y mujeres. Pongamos fin a esta guerra donde los hombres juegan a ser dioses con el arma de la superioridad y el machismo Hombres y mujeres JUNTOS por la igualdad y la equidad. #NoEsNo #feminismo
