#julylitwrit Day 20: Show your #currentlyreading ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am currently reading, and have been reading for the past few weeks, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I'm loving it, but it's going slow because I'm also doing #campnanowrimo . I'm also beta reading a freakin amazing book!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #amreading #reading #reader #read #iread #readerlife #booklife #bookcommunity #ilovebooks #bookworm #booknerd #bookobsessed #bookshelf #bookstagram #books #amwriting
Yesterday I finished my book. Of course I felt happy and proud but at the same time sad because I will miss my maincharacter and the world I was creating. I will miss all of it. Anyways, now and on I will edit and rewrite my first draft which means I can hang with my friends and the world a little bit more. Igår skrev jag klart det sista ordet på min bok. Självklart känns det underbart och jag är fantastiskt stolt att jag kunde skriva en till bok. Samtidigt känns det tråkigt och sorgset eftersom jag kommer sakna alla vänner jag fått i den här världen. Jag kommer sakna att få vara i huvudpersonens huvud för att fly den verkliga världen när den känns jobbig. Hursomhelst skall jag ägna ett par veckor för att redigera och skriva om delar ur boken så att det blir läsvärt (även om jag inte har några större planer för boken vill jag fortfarande att folk skall kunna läsa den.) #amwriting #writer #teenwriter #books

from @halifaxauthor • • • • • The former Soviet Navy submarine K-77, Project 651, alongside at Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2001, after she had played K-19 for the film 'K-19, The Widowmaker', starring Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson. The Juliett (NATO Codename) cruise missile submarine had been radically modified to resemble the nuclear powered ballistic missile submarine K-19 for the movie, and in my photo here, she has been reconfigured to her original appearance. K-77 was launched by the Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard in Gorky on March 11 1965, and commissioned on October 1 1965. Being a later 651 class boat, her hull was constructed of conventional steel and her battery was the lead-acid type, rather than the austenitic steel and silver-zinc batteries used in the first of the class. 651's submarines were tasked with following United States Navy aircraft carrier battle groups in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. K-77 was decommissioned in the early 90's, and by the end of thedecade, all the Julietts had been decommissioned. Film Equities Ltd. chartered K-77 for and had the boat towed to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 2000 to become the stand-in for K-19 in the movie. #HalifaxAuthor #sovietnavy #russiannavy #651class #juliettclass #submarine #coldwar #k19thewidowmaker #ssk #harrisonford #cruisemissile #liamneeson #writer #amwriting #author #daniellloydlittle

Been talking to a few people about their definitions of success, and how to get there. Some seem to think success is a magical quality only bestowed to a select few. Others believe successful people are just lucky: right time, right place. Very little of the conversation is just about ‘the work’. Day in, day out, pushing your craft to be the best it can be. If you’re just focused on making one masterpiece—you’re wasting your time. It’s about creating a thousand pieces of shit, okay, average and maybe a few great pieces of work. The greats are considered greats usually for a few “classic” works—but rarely do we study the fact that they also created thousands of other works — songs, stories, movies, artworks, inventions, equations, theories — that were forgotten because they were just...okay. But it was necessary. Greatness is in quantity. It always has been. So hunker down, stop being fearful, and do ALOT of work. (What’s your best tip to be great at anything?? I wanna know. And TAG someone that inspires you to be great!)

When you travel for work, two days, even three days off is never enough time. So, I'm feeling pretty thankful for the whole week at home I just had with my trolls! Even though it's hectic and it gives me a little anxiety! I ran errands, cooked dinner almost every night, took myself dancing and realized how much I've missed it, went to concerts in the park, about to paddle the lake for the second time this week and later today we are going to the movies! People always ask me what my favorite place to go to is,and as cheesy as it sounds, the answer is H♡ME! And Samara, Costa Rica 😎😋 Did you watch my story?!? Bird, French, and Montana are going live today on Amazon! They're quick reads that will keep you guessing till the very end! . . . . . #friday #feels #fridaze #momlife #mamaoffour #flightattendantmom #thatflightattenddantlife #crewlife #cabincrew #authorlife #amwriting #writedaily #writer #writersofinstagram #writerofig #writersofinsta #writerscommunity #storytelling #shortstories #suspense #thriller

Here's a story of the girl who survived Who never let go And believed in her might I'll take you to the flashback Of one year ago When there was no peace And legit no hope Trust issues, depression and anxiety Loomed around Friends turned foes Keeping her bound She trembled, she scattered She turned into fragements of herself Lying around, waiting to be swept There was no one to look up to And so many looking down at what was left It was tough, way too hard The people she trusted Not playing their entitled part She was broken But they never noticed Even if they did They never kept their promises She swayed away, far far away Never coming back Until that one day... . . . . .

"Женщины, по моим наблюдениям, вообще склонны к крайностям. Пока они молоды и глупы, готовы довольствоваться такой малостью, как любовь. То есть тем, что обычно называется «любовью», а на самом деле – просто неосознанное стремление к полной безопасности, которая, конечно, невозможна, зато кажется легкодостижимой в чужих объятиях, согласно формуле: «я нужна, значит, сегодня не умру». Ради этой иллюзии бедняжки и сами в лепешку расшибутся, и всех, кто подвернется под горячую руку, расшибут. Зато если девочке удается немного повзрослеть, поумнеть и помириться со своей смертью, тогда уж подавай ей весь Мир сразу, на меньшее не согласится. Поэтому, кстати, девочек гораздо легче учить магии. Как только поймет, что магия это и есть весь Мир – все, ты ее не остановишь. Ни на что не станет отвлекаться. Только и хлопот – следить, чтобы не чокнулась больше, чем полезно для дела. Безумие – обычная плата за чрезмерную целеустремленность и незнание меры, но с этим вполне можно справиться. А вот вас, мальчишек, отвлечь легче легкого, надо только угадать, кому чего предложить. Кому-то подавай корону, кому-то – просто шанс покрасоваться, кому-то – уверенность в своей правоте, кому-то – возможность спасать или, напротив, мучить других людей." #забытые_сказки #запискипрохожего #фрай #свободныйотмакса #свободныйот #storytelling #worldoftones #жизненно #бложек #глина #творю #amwriting #spokenword #abstraktart

We don't all start out jaded. Instead it's something we generally become, to protect ourselves.
Good morning! I feel so energized by my run yesterday and I had a late-night writing session. I know today's going to be a great writing day! I hope you're all enjoying the morning. If you aren't, I hope it'll get better! 📝📚💞 #bagabrielle

We’re home in London, and gradually emerging from the hazy fog of jet lag. I’ve gently returned to my studio, and I’m remembering the wide open spaces of my hometown. I love the blue skies, and the golden and green fields. It’s a colour palette I want to explore over the next few weeks. Summer is a time for floating from one minute to the next. I still have some work to do, but there is more margin in my days. This means I’ll have time for reading on the back terrace, while the roses nod their heads in approval. What are your plans for the summer?

I definitely struggle with getting out of my own way sometimes. Anyone else?
This weekend is all about my next project! I just might announce it in the next couple of days. I suck at keeping book secrets! 😂🙈 . There’s a new #AuthorTube video on my channel (Author Jessi Elliott – link in bio) about my struggles with outlining. If you have any tips or tricks, please leave them in the comments! . I almost didn’t make it to the gym this morning. I woke up almost 40 mins late and reallllllly didn’t want to get my butt out of bed, but I did it. So I rewarded myself with a trip to Starbucks on my way to work. 😏 . What are your writing plans for this weekend? ✍🏻

A preacher once said, “two things southern people are good at are eating fried chicken and holding grudges.” . The Baptist girl in me wants to give you a detailed account of the mouthwatering fried chicken we had from Popeyes last Sunday. But I’ll spare ya. . My unspiritual and prideful flesh likes to hold grudges. I’m not talking about being angry. The Bible gives us the liberty to be angry when the need arises, but that liberty is immediately followed with a command to “sin not.” Anger turns to sin when we’re unwilling to let it go, allowing a root of bitterness to take hold. Such a root will drain us spiritually. . I thought my grudge and I were cool. It justified itself on the mantle of my heart. I didn’t think it was hurting me. . The Lord has ways of revealing that root runs much deeper we let on. He has used several instances in the last few weeks to expose the ugliness which had begun to take shape in my heart. My initial reaction was to buck up in anger, but He continued to whisper grace. The Lord was graciously asking me to let it go. . He gently prodded me to stop drinking the poison and embrace grace instead. Once I finally surrendered my grudge, the ice surrounding my heart began to melt. My heart was no longer immovable by the anchor of bitterness. . This has had to happen several times in my Christian walk and each time, I found great freedom in laying it down. The tricky part is whether we’re willing to swallow pride. . Friend, we’ve all been hurt. We’ve all shared disagreements with loved ones. Can I ask - when will you stop drinking the poison? Your grudge will deceive you, saying you’re the one in control. In reality, your grudge is controlling you. The Lord wants you to lay it at His feet; repeatedly if need be. Let it go. . . . . . #bitterness #anger #hurtfeelings #forgiveness #grace #mercy #momblogger #faithblogger #Jesusblogger #amwriting
I mean sure, it's sad to leave your friends and family and relationships behind when you travel--especially when you work remotely and have that option whenever you want--but the toughest part about it is leaving behind your dog! . Travelling with your pup definitely requires a certain level of comfort with flying with them (and we're not totally sure we trust airlines to keep them safe, tbh...), but if you are, check out 4 dog-friendly cities where you can bring and actually spend time with them! #linkinbio . .

Who would steal away to write (or read) in a place like this?! I didn't even realize the chirping birds that went along with these garden videos from my in-law's house until I watched them in my quiet house this morning! It sounds just as much like paradise as it looked. I wonder if there's a way to set the soundtrack from this as my alarm in the morning... #garden #songbird #flowers #amwriting #amreading
The word 'dream' feels so overrated by now. When we were kids, some of us didnt even know how to dream, so we adopted someone's else's dream and made it ours. So much so, that we made life decisions based on someone's else's expectation of us, disguising it as one's own. Years went by and that child who never learnt how to dream but thought that if a family of five ever orders for five and not for three when they go to a restaurant, is possibly going to be the best day of their lives. But luckily enough, that day comes, and the child realises this isn't really a dream for themselves, so they start reevaluating life. The thing with reevaluating every single life choice is that it makes you extremely unhappy. It makes you believe that things couldve been better with just that one tiny decision you faltered at. It never makes you appreciate the ten things you did right (or atleast for me). But at the end of the day you realise that the whole dream fantasy was a hoax, and maybe there's no ONE big dream, and maybe just many small ones that happen all around you every day. Some of those children who had the luck, resources or guidance to fulfil their dreams have yet not given up on life, but the rest of us, still have to do with small miracles to get by and be able to breathe. . . . . #blogger #theblogissue #thehappynow #travelbloggerlife #photooftheday #thousandwords #photographysouls #writersofinstagram #writingprompt #instapoet #instapoetry #writerscommunity #writersofig #wordgasm #creativewriting #poetsofinstagram #amediting #amwriting #writerslife #writemotivation #writingadvice #foodforthought #vscohub #vsco #travelblog #travels #travelbeautifulpakistan #natgeo #dawndotcom
