Today’s Inspiration. Random scene inspiration. While the scene is right for many things in my WIP, I see this as Kelina who would not be wearing armor. Her garb would be the dark cloaked clothing of the Shadow Child. ❤️ #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amediting #writer #writers #writing #writerslife #writersofinstagram #fantasy #originalcharacter #fantasycharacter #erillianchronicles

I had a really good day today! I renewed some listings on my Etsy shop, wrote a review, read a little, met my writing goal, and did scene planning. My husband and I got our Christmas vacation house rented in Turk's and Caicos, omg I'm already so excited!

Sorry for the in activity on here. With my beta readers taking the stage, there's not really much I'm working on that I can tell you guys about. Most of it's secret. 😆 Spring has officially Sprung however! There are violets and spring beauties carpeting my backyard. I feel like I'm living in fairyland. And perhaps I am. After all, being an author IS a rather magical job...

#Campnanocampout day 25. What sets your MC's soul on fire? What lights them up? Havtorn lives a lonely life in hiding amongst humans. But when he feels the long lost Power come alive it wakes him up and drives him out of hiding. ----- Dag 25. Hvad giver din hovedperson blod på tanden? Hvad tænder en gnist i dem?

#igwritersapril today's office is a sunny patch in the living room. I have a perfectly nice office, but whenever I'm feeling stuck I have to move to another room. Does anyone else do that?
Happy—err, what day is it?...... Oh. Happy Wednesday!!! 😆 While I’m waiting on beta feedback, I’ve started writing book two!! And lemme just say, this book is gonna be intense, both in story and research, ha!! Loooooots going on. A big adventure! - - And that leads me to today’s #aprillitwrit question: What books do you love to reread? So I’ve noticed a trend with myself. I usually like the 2nd book in a series the best and I have a desire to reread the books where the characters are going on a big adventure. Something waaaaayyyyyy our of their comfort zone!! So I’m getting an inkling that book two in my Elite Trials series might end up being my fave. 😁😁 What about you? What books have you reread? . . • • • • __________________________________________ #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #book #booklover #bookaddict #amreading #booknerd #ilovebooks #bookish #bookstagrammer #booknerdigans #bookphotography #readersofig #amwriting #write #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #fiction #authorsofinstagram #yalit #author

Have you always wanted to write a book, but you just haven't known where to start? Today on my blog and YouTube channel, I am sharing my top tips for how to get started as a writer. Follow the link in my profile!
After years of failed starts, I decided I was going to write a book purely for fun. I stopped thinking about publishing anything, and I just wrote something that 💥I wanted to read💥. To my delight, it worked. The novel I wrote is about to be published around the world!

The lilacs are blooming in my neighborhood and I love to stop and smell them. This poem started out talking about lilacs and ended with my family home burning down (true story). 😐😐 Ya gotta let the poem tell the story it wants to tell.
After a rough week with writer's block and a lot of doubt I finally made some progress (2063 words!!) and I'm happy with how the story is going. I filled some plot holes the last few days so I can finally write without doubting everything 😊 And with only 5 days left of #campnanowrimo it's just in time 😅🙈 #nanowrimo #write #writing #writersofig #writersofinstagram #schrijven #aspiringauthor #writingabook #writingcommunity #schrijversvaninstagram #wordcount #amwriting

Hi, guys! I just wanted to talk today about passion, writing, and us (obviously 😅). I’ve been having trouble deciding what to write practically for the past 6 years. That was the last time I can think of where I wrote something purely for the joy of it. Even a little then and most definitely now as I am about to enter the post-grad career world in a few weeks, I find myself thinking about how I can make money with my writing. This leads to a dangerous path of trying to please the reader and think of what stories make the most money. Does anyone else have this problem? It drives me mad. I think of certain plots and twists and character relationships I would like to do that would fascinate me to write, but I always question my ideas now based on how well they might cater to a paying audience. And I hate that I do that so much. Because it has damaged my writing. It puts a taint on all of writing because I prematurely judge every idea the second it pops into my head on whether or not a large audience would read it and I could get that best selling book bragging rights and money like I always wanted since I was 10. But I’m trying more and more every day to tell myself the hard truth: I could write a thousand best sellers and make all the money I want, but if I’m writing something I hate or feel like I have to write to please readers, it will never be close to fulfilling. It will never be satisfying. I will always wonder if the readers would have liked XYZ better than what I felt I -had- to write to make people happy. So I’m trying to write for the fun of it. Trying to write what I’m most passionate about. But it’s hard when I need to make a living and spend my time wisely. It’s so hard. Do any of you run into similar thinking as you’re writing? How have you tried to break this pattern of destructive thinking? #amwriting #yanovel #wip #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #reader #passion #writing #writerproblems #goforit #discussion #advice

Day 22/100 - Life as an Entrepreneur Human beings are generally copycats. Why do I say this?. We constantly try to be like other people, replicate what others are doing or strive to be better than others. One way or another it's a form of copying and it hurts the authentic owner of the idea if he/she is not referenced. I'm here to tell you to ignore your copycats. I personally have a mapped out plan for this brand for the next 3years. I'll keep updating and I'm sticking to it till the very end.I'd like to see how much copying and how far the copycats can go. Its time to taste the patience of your copycats...hustle, keep them on their toes, never let them knock you out. You own that dream. See it to the end. #creativewriting #handwriting #writingismyfreedom #writinginspiration #amwriting #writingprompt #writinglife #writingcommunity #writingchallenge #writings #writing #entrepreneur #entreprenership #writers #motivation #startup #writersofinstagram #journal #lagosfoodies #ipreview @preview.app
Ok fellow authors. A question. After doing a lot of research, I am considering self-publishing my novel. I've only sent it out to one publishing house so far, but from everything I've read, it seems like most first novels don't get a PR budget from the Publishing House, unless you land one of the Big Five, and it can be a handful of years before finding a house that thinks you're worth the risk without a track record. That being said, I've read that first-time authors end up selling and promoting the book themselves anyway and only earn 30% (as opposed to 70% if you self-publish) of the sales profit. It's a quandary, right? I could put my story out in the world now, OR spend countless more hours, perhaps years, hoping that a publishing house will see it as a profitable risk. Tell me. Did you self-publish, and why? Would you do it again? . . (This is my mock cover, with a photo I took in my story's location. Isn't it gorgeous?!) . . . . #write #iwrite #author #authorslife #writersofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #writersofinsta #writersofinstagram #authorscommunity #authorsofinstagram #authorsofinsta #novelist #novels #comingofage #selfpublish #selfpublishing #writingadvice #writing #girlboss #book #bookish #newnovel #booklover #amwriting

Real talk: Very, very early in our relationship, I made Mr. Fox an 8 hour long playlist. So this is me showing restraint. (In my defense, he was going offshore on a sailboat for two weeks. I obviously didn't want him to get bored with the same ten songs over and over because of course he would miss me so much. I have no chill, my friends.)⠀ But if you're reading Bound To and wondering what kind of mix tape Jolene would make, here's your answer.

When I ponder someone’s art, I search for the roots of what brought them to create what they did. It is in this place of deeper understanding where you find better appreciation for one another and the art that flows out of each one of us.
"Cheers", I said, as he held his bottle up against mine. This one was a rather silent guy, the one who had a bottle but not with some wine. He was there as time rolled by, in the freezing winter or scorching sunshine. I didn't have to say a lot, I was sure he knew, we'd somehow always manage to get through. This meeting was one for recognition, he was the friend who stayed and they called him reflection. I put the drink to my lips as did he, this was for the all the times gone by and the ones where we were yet to be. ______________ #poetsociety #wordgasm #reflection #diary #wordporn #fiction #wordsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #writingcommunity #amwriting #storyteller #ataletotell
