Melissa has had a troubled childhood, and as an adult, it's tough for her to let go of her past. Heartache; 14 - Years Old. **I want my eyes to stop seeing her; I want my hands to stop feeling the cold. I want my heart to stop crying. I wish it could all just go away. I want yesterday to stop playing in my head like a movie, constantly on repeat. Every time Melissa hid in a corner away from the real world, her cousin Dylan would come to save her. Neglect; 11 -Years-Old. ** Daddy only had dinner with me and talked to me because he was planning on leaving me. I pull away from Daddy and out of his arms. I put my tiny hand on his face. "Daddy I don't want you to leave me now. Although Melissa pretends to be happy, she isn't. She carries inside her so much hatred and resentment. Resentment; * I continuously slap him repeatedly on his back, "How does it feel to be someone's punching bag?" I question him; my body is full of rage. Dylan is the only person who has never turned his back on Melissa and has consistently been her protector. Her Night in Shining Armor; 10-Years-Old. **"Everything will be okay now, we are a team, and we will leave together" Dylan cries with me. "Always together," he promises me, and I believe my cousin. Everyone important in Melissa's life has only made her feel rejected and unloved. Except for her cousin who has saved her more than once. Abuse; 10-Years-Old **When my Mommy and Daddy fight, my heart beats hard. I can feel it pounding in my throat and in my chest. My legs shake too, and I cannot make them stop. It's natural for Melissa and Dylan to love each other since they are cousins. Right? However, what happens when that love becomes forbidden and turns into something it shouldn't? #authorsofinstagram #amwriting #imwriting #kindleunlimited #amazon #romancereads #blog #blogger #novel #authorlife #heartache #drugs #abuse #alcohol #bookwormproblems #bookaddict #badboy #ebook #authorscommunity #authors #authorlife #childabuse #triggerwarnings #happyeverafter #emotional
How I feel about risk.
Authors Challenge 2019, Day Seventeen. 17) Favourite book and why. It's hard to pick just one book as my favourite, but these two are possible contenders! Both of these come from the Warhammer universe, one from fantasy and the other 40K. I love these particular editions of the books because of the fantastic cover artwork they have. First and Only is the opening story in the Gaunt's Ghosts franchise which I would recommend to anyone who enjoys dark, gritty, war sci-fi. The whole cast of characters are fantastic and it hooked me on the series. Trollslayer is a fantastic fantasy series with the great concept of a Dwarf focusing his life on dying in glorious battle and a man who drunkenly agreed to chronicle this mighty death no matter what danger they both face. The book is made up of multiple short stories which all follow on, and was the original inspiration for early stages of The Wanderer Chronicles. Both are wonderful books and great opening instalments to their respective franchises. #authorschallenge2019 #authorschallenge #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #authorscommunity #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #writers #favouritebooks #favouritebook #warhammer #warhammer40k #scifi #fantasy #fiction
#newwriterchallenges : I'm not writing as much as I want to. Make a commitment As you write, your primary goal would be to complete your draft. This is a great goal, but it can be overwhelming and produce little gratification until the end. Instead, lots of people prefer to make smaller, attainable goals to boost confidence in their writing. This really depends on your personal motives, for example, I hate making specific goals because instead of motivating, I find them stressful. So, do what's best for you. Try making small goals, like weekly word count goals, or chapter goals. But, make these realistic and flexible. Don't beat yourself up if you miss a week or wrote fewer words than you require. This will only make matters worse by increasing your stress levels regarding your writing. #goalsetter #authorlove #authorsofig #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #instawriter #iamwriter #iamwriting #fantasywriter #authorscommunity #commitment #goals #selfpublishedauthor #newskills #ilovewriting #romancenovels #fiction #yafiction #yawriter
Happy National Hat Day Lovelies! 😈 Do you prefer your hair long or short? . . Here’s a throwback to when I had long hair. It was nice, but so much work. I love the ease of having short hair. . .

Hi all hope your week is going well. I got a lot of writing done and at the pace I'm going I think this draft will soon see its last chapter very very soon. I think only 5 more chapters wooo! I finished The Seas by Samantha Hunt it was a really quick read but a difficult one if that makes any sense. It's a book that deals with serious topics and I found the main character to be sort of likeable in a tragic way. I'm always a sucker for an unreliable narrator and my god was she not to be trusted and I loved it. ✨ Day 17 of #janowrimogoals is cast your novel. Uuugh I dont know actors that well so it would be hard to do that. Liam Neilson as Mr. Woodcutter? That kid from Disney as Sam. I dont even know which star would fit the bill to play Olivia since she has a particular look that I want her actress to have. I'm no good at this 😓 . . . . . . . . . . . . #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #writersofig #writing #writersofinstagram #writer #writerslife #aspiringwriter #author #authorgram #amwriting #authorscommunity #authorlife #bookworm #booklover #bookaholic #bookish

So this just happened!! I started an IG page because I have plans for a WIP, and I needed somewhere to market it. It has been a fun week, and I’m already meeting new people! Book people are the best people. 🥰
And my love, Even if I am away, I will always be around, Like those behind your lids, To wipe away your tears, Whether of sadness or happiness. . And my love, Even if I am away, I will always be around Like the cool breeze brushes Your slender shoulder, To hug your discomforts and fears. And my love Even if I am away, I will always be around Like the stars of the night, Where you can tell your Tales happened in daylights. . And my love Even if I am away, And you want to see my face, Just look up to the sky, The moon you see, Is talking about you to me. . And my love, Even if I am away The strings which I weaved, The feathers which cling, Is the symbol of me, Fulfilling your dreams. . ==Dreamcatcher== - pyromaniac.poet 16 Jan 2019 .

There was a spark. And then he was gone, and she's left with a little more than she bargained for... Paige I had it all handled. I had a great job, with my slightly crazy best friend, and I was doing my damnedest to raise my little girl all by myself, with maybe a little help from my friends. Didn't matter that I hadn't really known Hannah's dad. What mattered was that I loved my daughter with everything I had. Nik I was a former Special Forces Operative, who now was dealing with the fact that Gods, who had once been myth, were real. And I was supposedly one of them. I certainly didn't feel anything like a god. Most days I barely felt like a functioning adult. Fighting for the right side was never a hard choice, but superpowers where a whole nother animal that I wasn't ready to deal with. When Paige and her best friend Aimee move back to the states for a job with the illustrious Oracles, gods who had come back to earth, she is faced with a man she never thought she would see again. Hannah's dad stood there, as sculpted and perfect as the last time she had seen him. Well, maybe a little less naked. And he was looking right at her as she stepped off the elevator. What is the first thing she does? Punches him right in the face. Thank the gods that Hannah didn't see. Kick off your shoes, grab a cup of tea, and dive in to Paige and Nik's world of Gods and Monsters. Not to mention their second chance at love. This book is completely safe, no cheating, and I promise a HEA at the end. #paranormalromanceloop #paranormalromance #paranormalromanceauthor #paranormalromanceauthorsatinstagram #indiewriters #indieromancewriter #indieromanceauthor #indiepublished #indieauthorloop #2019booklovers #2019writingcommunity #2019writersandreaders #writingcommunity #writersloop2019 #writersloop #authorswithintegrity #authorscommunity #authorloop #authorfollowloop #newyearnewwritingpeers

Almost caught up with the #authorschallenge2019 - day 15’s blurry image. I had a drill sergeant at basic training who wouldn’t let us eat lunch until we could come up with an oxymoron for him - he always cracked up over jumbo shrimp. ;) What’s your favorite oxymoron? #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #writerlife #writingcommunity #authorsofinstagram #authorslife #authorscommunity
SOAR 🦅 _____________________________________ Often we find ourselves bogged down by the various challenges that life throws our way. They may present themselves in the form of a toxic relationship, a loved one's deteriorating health, financial instability, your own mental health issues or a lack of purpose. When things seem to be getting grimmer with each passing day. Remember, to be kind to yourself. Remember to hang onto hope. Remember how important every single step forward is, even though at the time it may not seem that way. Most importantly, do no indulge in your moments of self-doubt. They will happen. You are human after all. It's okay. Let it pass. And of course, keep pushing through the pain. This is how you grow; this is how you soar! . Written for #dtosexpand #elfchen challenge #dtosprompts , which involved writing an elfchen on the theme "Expanding/ Growing through healing". Tagging @beingyoubeingtrue and @thequietcorn to carry forward the torch of growth lol 😊 You know the rules. Start the elfchen with my last word–"Soar". Write on the same theme of "Expanding/ Growing through healing" and tag at least two others to participate. Again, even thought I've tagged only two poet, anyone who wishes to, is welcome to participate. Check out @doortooursouls page for further clarification. .

This is from a story called ‘The Best Things’. This is an elderly lady, nervous and humiliated. The story is about assumptions, and respect. 💙 . . . #writerscommunity #writerswrite #indieauthors #writersofig #writersofig #writersofinstagram #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #authorscommunity #indieauthor #indieauthorsofinstagram #story
Day 14 of the #authorschallenge2019 - my favorite classic. I grew up on chilling tales by the masters of horror. The Raven holds a special place in my telltale heart because it also became the mascot of the 741st EOD Battalion during our 2009 deployment to Afghanistan. #weremember #nevermore #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #writerlife #writingcommunity #edgarallenpoe #authorsofinstagram #authorscommunity
Day 13 of the #authorschallenge2019 - writing advice. I’ll admit, most of the best advice I find comes from @greysabc - the writing is amazing!

Catching up with Day 11 of the #authorschallenge2019 with a book quote from my WIP, Sandcastles. Science teacher Mr. Collier’s discussion of the first law of thermodynamics makes a lasting impact on main character Alex, and these words of wisdom may “matter” even more when he and his sister Katie face off against the evil Headmaster in a final battle to save their family! #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #writerlife #writingcommunity #yanovels #authorsofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #authorscommunity @mom2anh

Just a little sample from a GEM of a book I narrated about a month ago in the self-help genre. I would say...the greatest pleasure I get from narrating books “besides hearing from Happy Listeners” is the incredible amount of knowledge received with every book I decide to take on. This insightful book, really changed the way I’ve handled certain aspects in my life! “Obviously for the better!”
