"Legend has it that this was the place the fairy queen cursed the prince and turned him into stone. You see that rock over there? If you look closely you can still see his face ..."
Have you ever noticed how fairy tales, legends, or myths influence our life and shape our culture?
They appear in our language, our art. We tell them to our children, we discuss them in class, we analyse literature written about them.
Our history is so much more than simple dates and numbers. So when you go and invent a new culture, write a new story, why don't you come up with a few legends and myths of your own? It will surely make your world and your culture much more colourful and lively.
Not sure how to proceed? Don't worry, I have written down a handy little guide on legends and myths and how they alter and change a world, complete with guidance questions to help you come up with your own mythology. (Link in bio)
"Behind every successful story stands a meaningful mythology and gives it depth."
Let's get inventin'!

What does the rest of your 2018 look like?
I have a few really exciting things in the works that will debut in 2019! I’m working on those as well as writing the second installment of The Queen’s Keeper. I also like to read other genres than fantasy whilst penning fantasy, so, I’m attempting to finish those books up and get started on the historical fiction one posted here for #mapmonday
Sidenote: My mama made this gorgeous scarf! AND... TQK is still on super sale for a bit longer!

New mug to start out the week! Loving this holiday gift from my friend Kelly. This week is going to be more about story editing and copy writing than storytelling, but I’ll take the inspiration where it comes. Not pictured: two cats attempting to climb onto my lap while I work. 😽😽 .

A dream, all a dream, that ends in nothing, and leaves the sleeper where he lay down, but I wish you to know that you inspired it.

All the air was forced from my lungs when Lincoln moved, crushing me between the trunk and his body as his mouth crashed down on mine. My lips parted on a startled gasp and his tongue invaded while one of his hands fisted in my hair, holding on tight as he took the kiss as deep as he could possibly go. My back bowed as he pressed in so close that every inch of our bodies touched from thigh to shoulder.
His other arm wrapped tightly around my waist and held on for dear life as we kissed. It wasn’t a battle for dominance; each stroke of our tongues was a give and take.
My hands came to his shoulders, not to push him away, but to hold on as I lost myself in him all over again. It was beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. I never wanted it to end, but I wasn’t sure I could survive it much longer.
Before I had a chance to break the kiss, Lincoln pulled away and rested his forehead against mine, his chest rising and falling like he’d just run a marathon at a full sprint.
“That feel like pretend to you?” He pushed his hips harder into me. “Does this feel like I’m not interested?”
“Lincoln.” My voice came out as a ragged whisper.
“I’ve been goin’ out of my mind not being able to get to you, not knowing where you were.” His arm at my waist flexed, and his fingers in my hair clenched. “Not being able to touch you.”

Christmas is coming and I only want one thing this year - can you guess what it is? 📚
Somewhat acceptable goals! I love it. Nothing wrong with big dreams & goalsetting. If you follow me closely you know I love goals, productivity, and all that jazz. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️ But, seriously, somedays my goals are tiny. Like get out of bed, get dressed, and not fall apart kinda tiny! 😆 And guess what???????????????????????
That's okay. That's life. So- if today your only goal is to get through the day... do it and don't feel like it's not enough.
Definitely me!!! Ah...the writer’s life & our undying love for books 📚
is still on sale if you haven’t yet got a copy. You’ll have to read it before the second drops in June—the adventure continues! Y’all know I only write nonstop excitement with a few sexy surprises so make sure you’re ready to go (and then some). 😈
The past 7 days have been a momentous positive journey.
I have been involved in @kingstoncollegelondon
enrichment week; giving two motivational talks in that time to the Hair and Beauty students there.
It has been an honour and a privilege to go back as a contributor to my very own starting ground, my old college. So super proud of my certificate, and grateful to have been able to share this moment with the very beautiful Grace, the one of the ladies who taught me and who contributed to my zeal for the Hair and Beauty Industry.
Thank you for having me Kingston College

Shiloh is back with an empty cup and no tea ☕️ When I got home Saturday my head was hot, I had just sold 90 books in 3 weeks, met and socially exchanged energy with a myriad of people and personalities some of which I consoled and worked for with those who were triggered. I also had defend myself to those who wanted to judge me on the title of my book and not the merit or contents of my soul, my mind and intelligence. Needless to say I was exhausted, in many ways I still am. However I am blessed with the luxury to provide myself with self care (many women can not afford self care, one of the many reasons why I started FABU PHIT providing affordable self care to those who need it most 🥰 follow us for more details or to support @fabuphit
) I’ll be back sooner than later with a full cup of tea ☕️ #loveyou #loveyourself #thankyou #support #love #tea #selfcare #selflove #writerlife #authorlife #instagood #soul #mind #intelligence #healing #sweet #beautiful #energy #energyexchange
Озорная - я🙃
Уходят с возрастом из нашей жизни игривость и озорство.
А ведь они добавляют в нашу обыденную жизнь смех и радость.
Придумаем интересные идеи!
Повеселимся всей семьей!
Мы дома делаем так: 🎼1) «Dance-минутка»
Включаем музыку, танцуем и каждый по очереди показывает любые движения, а все за ним повторяют.
Пластика тела! 🎤2)«Звезда эстрады»
Споем караоке. По одной песенке каждый.
Позитив на весь день! ⛳3)Прямая осанка на завтрак»
За столом сидим ровненько. Ведущий наблюдает.
Кто сгорбился - приседает 10 раз.
Ровная спина и «железные» ягодицы!) 💪4) «Фитнес-клаб»
Придумываем 3 упражнения и делаем все вместе под музыку по три подхода каждое.
Плоский живот, прямая спина, сильные руки! 🎭5) «Мини - театр»
Мимикой и движениями изображаем людей, животных или даже предметы. Все отгадывают, а первый догадавшийся водит.
Доброе утро! 💖🌈
Волшебная птица встречает вас утречком и говорит человеческим голосом-
"Люби,твори- будь счастлив!" 🦄🌸🌸🌸👩🎨🎨🤹♂️
Что для меня живопись?
Это - путь познания себя, причем очень увлекательный.
Можно сказать, игра, в которой загадываешь ребусы в виде картин, смысл которых доходит порой не всегда и не сразу!
Можно нарисовать бесчисленные варианты.
Но выбираешь именно то, что сейчас актуально для тебя, для твоей души!
И это всегда праздник!
Выход в неизведанное!
Даже повторяя картину, она получается другая!
Смотрю на готовую картину и читаю послание своему внутреннему "я".
А как у вас с этим вопросом? Или вы только хотите начать рисовать?
