What have y'alls been working on? - I've had a fairly productive day. I wrote a little over 1000 words. And I also finally got started on formatting and compiling poems for this poetry book. Hopefully I can publish it before the end of the summer or the end of the year. I really want to get the order of the poems done today
I finished my read through of the first draft of Project V today!! Thanks to some travelling for work it took a little longer than expected so I'm glad to be moving on to the next phase of my revision. There are lots of developmental edits to be made, which means plenty of work to do, but I am still so excited about this story. For this week's #thursdayaesthetic I'm introducing Nataya. She's 18 years old and works on a team of Valterrian researchers who are working to discover the source of Valterria's magic. She has a cool ability involving time travel. She never hesitates to tell people exactly what's on her mind! . #amwriting #amediting #amrevising #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram #writersofig #aspiringauthor #authorsofinstagram #authorsofig #write #writer #writerlife #writerslife #justwrite #writing #creativewriting #storytelling #womenwhowrite #sciencefantasy #firstdraft #lowfantasy #amwritingfantasy #yafiction #yafantasy #WIP #mywip #aesthetic #novelwriting #novelaesthetic . 📷 found on Pinterest
Repost from @lisaraeroman using @RepostRegramApp - NOW AVAILABLE! Get your copy of @lisaraeroman debut novel, Fae Touched. Available on @amazonkindle and @amazon. ——————————————— When the Fae abandoned humanity, they left behind more than myths. Abby isn’t human…she’s only pretending to be. Never remain in one city too long Don’t go out after sundown Under no circumstances reveal your magic These are the rules Abigail MacCarthy has followed since escaping the secret agency that controlled her life for years. But eluding recapture by the facility is not the only threat to Abby’s continued freedom. A rare halfblood in a world with wolf shifters, witches, and vampires who would demand allegiance if her bloodlines were discovered, staying off the magical community’s radar is key. But one broken rule—okay, three—meant her days of hiding are over. Nothing has ever divided his loyalties…until Abby. Guard the region Protect the queen Nurture the Clan These are the creeds Alpha shifter Samuel Walker lives by. Yet after his queen is saved from an assassination attempt by magic that shouldn’t exist, Samuel is torn between responsibility to the Fae Touched and protecting the beautiful halfblood he’s tempted to claim as his own. What will happen when doing his duty puts Abby in danger?

I have a lot of books I want to read. What is the next book on your TBR?
• •"Get outta my goddamn car!" Albert shouts and punches him straight in the nose. •Mark gasps in the sudden flare of pain and flees the Impala. He waits until the car pulls out of sight to break down into sobs. His tears mix with his blood and dribble down the front of his favorite blue shirt. It's ruined now. And for that he cries harder. • • #mywipjune2019 (even though I think these two are kinda stupid I'll do it anyway) Day 18: What color do you associate to each character? Mark's favorite color is blue and that plays somewhat of a role in the books. At least it's one way he feels connected to his mother and in turn, a way Mol feels connected to Mark Day 19: Best friendships, relationships, enemies, and frenemies? Can't really spoil that now can I? • • #writerscommunity #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writer #instagramwriter #ilovetowrite #writing #ilovewriting #fiction #fictionwriting #fictionwriter #writerprobs #writerproblems #naturevsnurture #wip #novel #novelwriting #amwriting #editing

Hey there!⁣ .⁣ Do you want to write a novel, but have no clue where to start? Writing a novel is easier with an outline.⁣ .⁣ But what if it was even harder to write a an outline? Lucky for you, I'm coming out with a FREE mini course on how to do just that! Just click the link in my bio to get notified when the class opens!
Novel writing tip 1/10. Whether it be a short romance novella or an epic fantasy spanning 200,000 words, setting concrete and manageable writing goals is key to producing your manuscript. Especially for those like me - working long hours - setting a goal that you can stick to is key. I have a rather modest goal for each day: 500 words towards my WIP. Although I often exceed this by tenfold, it sets a baseline that I can budget for and count on. Perhaps more importantly - it keeps me accountable during those days when I just do not want to write. #writing #WIP #fantasy #novel #bookstagram #author #fantasybooks #writingtips #novelwriting #authorsofinsta #writingcommunity #writingmotivation

i think, from what i have so far, my favorite opening line to a chapter is either: “i’m not good.” or, “i find myself feeling more like a human with you.”⁣ ⁣ the second is, of course, just the start of a really cute, rather intimate moment between the two protagonists, where they kind of reveal that they sorta like each other and it may or may not end in their first kiss?? it was inspired by the song human by dodie, which is a great song if you haven’t heard it!! that whole chapter was based on that song, so i had to keep it on a loop until i finished writing it 😅⁣ ⁣ as i think i’ve explained previously, each chapter i switch back and forth between my two protagonists: one is from the perspective where it starts at the beginning of their relationship, and the other perspective starts just after the relationship ends. so, the first quote “i’m not good.” is one of my favorite opening lines to a chapter because in the chapter right before it, the last words are that same protagonist in a different time saying, “i’m good.” i just love that transition and it really embodies the whole book in such a simple way, ya know? why waste time say lot word when few word do trick⁣ ⁣ kidding. but thank you if you got that reference :-)⁣ •⁣ ••⁣ •••⁣ #instawriters #writers #writersofinstagram #igwritingcommunity #words #thoughts #inspiration #amwriting #amwriter #yalit #novelwriting #writing #writinginspiration #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #bookinspiration #aesthetic #aestheticfeed #characteraesthetic #youngwriters
My hustle is strong today. . I woke up with a smile on my face, leaping out of bed to tackle one of my creative projects that has been giving me trouble. . For those that know me, you’re well aware that getting up on time is not a good habit that I hold, nor is being a morning person. But today, the world’s axis has shifted. . Maybe it’s the cold weather. Maybe it’s the rain. Maybe it’s the great company I’m keeping (I see you, @tyzors ). . Whatever it is, I’m inspired. . Here’s hoping that you, too, can find the hustle you require today. It’s about time to get shit done, isn’t it? . . . . . . #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #authors #creativeliving #amwriting #novellife #novelwriting #novelist #create #creative #canwrite #willwrite #writenow #writethatdraft #contemporarywritersclub #melbournewriters #aussieauthor #writerightnow #aussiewriters #authorpreneur #solopreneur #writerswrite #goaldigger #lovewritelove #writingcommunity #creativepreneur #ladypreneur #creativelifehappylife #hustlehard #getshitdone

Series Two: [AGAINST THE CURVE] Post Image: Are You Different? by Andy Warhol. To Everyone: THANK YOU!❤️!! Delivering information regarding the Cultural Arts requires time and forethought—18 months later the ‘eureka' moment pierced my brain and it all came together—FINALLY! Communal betterment was the goal, expanding realms the Answer- My former 2 Pages were restrictive, just Film & Literature, too stifling. Now, each month, the subject Series will be a specific topic featuring multicultural arenas to optimize a singular idea by widening the aspect range of thoughts entirely central to a sole stream of consciousness. With Series Two the Post Selections chosen are a varying group, with one common denominator, passion at their core, and differentness. It’s one thing to have a vision, quite another to begin a new conversation— combined these creative actions warrant a universal applause for Outstanding Creative Design Efforts. Series Two hallmarks several entrants who are relatively new to the Cultural scene, which says a lot considering their ability to conjure a creative identity in an overblown intellection marketplace.

Follow me for writing advice and prompts posted daily! ✏😊 •°. All artists experience blocks from time to time. Sometimes stressors in life can cause you to stall out in your writing, while other times you simply get burnt out. Still other times, it can come seemingly out of nowhere. Luckily, the cure for writer’s block is typically the same no matter the cause. The best thing you can do for writer’s block is to begin writing every single day. It doesn’t matter if it’s the worst you’ve ever written or if it hardly even feels like coherent writing. It doesn’t matter if you’re working on your WIP or something entirely different. What matters is that getting words on the page is what will push you through your block. Over time, the words will simply begin to come to you more easily again. If part of your block is keeping you from thinking of things to write about, using writing prompts is one of the most efficient ways to get yourself writing every day. If you’re experiencing this problem, come to my page. I post a new prompt every day that you can use. Write for at least 15-30 minutes. Even if you don’t love the prompt you’re using or the resulting story, just exercising your writing muscles will get you through the block over time. •°. •°. •°. #thepathtofiction #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writer #writing #writerslife #amwriting #creativewriting #writingislife #writerscommunity #writingmotivation #motivation #writinginspiration #inspiration #writersblock #writingadvice #howtowrite #howtowriteabook #writeeveryday #writerproblems #writerscorner #youknowyoureawriterwhen #novelist #novelwriting #iwanttobeawriter #aspiringwriters #wednesdaymotivation #writingwednesday

Residency time is vanishing. Less than two weeks remain. 😱 I still have so much to do! I deleted over 3,000 words from the manuscript and drafted a new first chapter. Net gain: 269 words. In addition to five hours at the computer, I spent six more hours (and at least 4,000 words) on handwritten character sketches ✍️ in my journal. I’m still not sure this is where the story starts, but I’ll keep making words until the characters tell me where to begin. @sarah_thibault , my fellow resident, cooked a meal to celebrate the full moon in ♐️ Sagittarius, where we set intentions for our work. We gathered greenery 🌱 for the altar on the way to the Fab Lab. Pasta with a thick tomato mushroom sauce. Leftover seafood and rice, a Portuguese delicacy.

Little Known Facts: I am a Functioning Introvert and Professional People Watcher.💯 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe it’s my city upbringing but most times I watch people long before I truly interact with them. I’ll always speak, but I’ll have my eyes on you before I really allow you in my space 👀. You can tell a lot by people’s mannerisms, the way they move and interact. _ In fact, sitting in a coffee shop window watching folks walk by gives me tons of inspiration to write as I assume and adlib in my mind, just who these people are and what they’re all about. _ My introvertedness has gotten progressively intense as I’ve gotten older. The more I’ve learned to love myself, the more I love my own company. I spend a lot of time in my own mind and thoughts, always seeking more peace, understanding and balance. I’m ALWAYS thinking. _ I can hang in a crowd, but the company of 1...or 2 is enough. That’s where the “functioning” part comes from in my introversion. I can be with others, but that party of 1 be banging!✨ _ Lastly, writing is BAE! Writing has been my voice long before I had the confidence to use my own voice. I smile more now, and my patience is MUCH better though I still tend to jump the gun sometimes - hey, I’m still a work in progress 🤷🏾‍♀️ _ So, what don’t I know about you? Tell me a little known fact about you in the comments ⬇️⬇️⬇️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @denisebensonphotography
Do you prefer a cliffhanger ending or something more relaxed? 📕⁣ ⁣ I always aim to make my books end on a special note, usually with a cliffhanger.⁣ ⁣ Don't worry though, final books in a series will always wrap everything up nicely 😉⁣ ⁣ I know cliffhangers are not for everyone though, so I'm curious to hear what you prefer. How do you like your reads to end?⁣ ⁣ #bookravensjun19 - best endings⁣ ⁣ This whole trilogy is exceptional in every bloody way, but the ending stood out because I can't decide whether it's a happy ending or not. I like that, because it strikes me as more realistic and thought-provoking than completely happy endings where everything is well.⁣ ⁣ (okay, maybe worry a *little* for my final installments 😈) ⁣ ⁣ It's been a while since I read them, but they've stayed with me 🖤⁣ ⁣ Do you like a twist right at the end or do like things to wind down and stay calm until the sequel? What about last books in a series--do you prefer them happy?

Short stories present a unique challenge. How do we pack meaning into such a compact space? There's no one answer but there are a few helpful things to keep in mind. Meaningful stories are often about how relationships change us. They're about the effect relationships have on us. And they're about the effect we have on others (for good or bad). Meaningful stories also tend to be about going through or emotionally responding to some fundamentally new life experience for a character. The life experience might be dealing with the death of a loved one, having an identity crisis, assimilating into a new social situation, coming to terms with an uncomfortable new reality, having an identity crisis, falling victim to impostor syndrome, etc. After you've identified this life experience, ask: How does the character change from that experience? Or how does the character change those around them based on that experience? How are their relationships affected? Because of their compact form, short stories can often benefit greatly from symbolism. Sometimes the experience of the story is a metaphor for a more universal life experience. Sometimes objects are used to symbolize relationships. Consider how these methods can be used to infuse meaning in a short form.

Let’s talk #dialogue . You want natural dialogue, yet natural dialogue is not recorded conversation. The many pauses, ah’s, interruptions, the superfluous commentary, chit-chat, and small talk we deal with every day are boring to read — and they explode your word count. While in real life we might start every conversation with “Hi, how are you?”, in fiction you want to skip that and get right to the point— to the theme you need to develop at that particular stage of your novel: friendship, jealousy, romance, intimacy, murderous intent, anger, distrust… whatever. Check back this week for more tips on dialogue. Follow me for (almost) daily tips on #writing and #editing .

Before. "Kenapa elo harus ada di dunia ini!" teriak cowok kepada cewek yang berdiri di hadapannya. "Karena kalau nggak ada gue, dunia ini SUNYI bego." balas cewek itu. Seorang cowok menolak keberadaan seorang cewek yang menurutnya sangat mengganggu. Apakah keinginan cowok itu terwujud? Atau ia malah menyesal karena keinginan tersebut telah terwujud. After. "Gue enggak suka buat kenangan." ucap cewek itu santai terkesan cuek. "Kenapa?" tanya cowok yang ada di sampingnya bingung. "Kadang itu buat gue rugi."

Today's deep thoughts about my #writing
Steam and scorch all the way. Reading and writing. As long as it’s relevant, not gratuitous and is well written. #sexynovel #steamyromance #eroticromance #sexywords #romancewriterchallenge #sexybooks #romancewriter #bookstagram #novelwriting #lovewriting #amwritingromance
What is that quote? “I hate writing. I love having written.” —Dorothy Parker 🌺 Did she truly say that? I can’t say I feel this fully, since the reason I write is because I do actually love the process of writing. When the ideas and words are flowing, as they are now, what I do love is the creating and shaping and discovering. I love the revising, too, and I adore the editing process with my editor and the line edits when we’re working down to the word, yes, all of that, up until I have to let go. I hate the before and I’ll admit I hate the after. BUT I do understand that frustrated desire to get to the end of it already, to be done and turning in your draft and feeling like you actually accomplished something. “I love having written.” I understand that. I keep having fantasies about getting to the end of this draft, even though I’m so far away. Sometimes I imagine myself printing out the whole thing—my novel drafts usually hover in the 275–325 page range, and so I wonder about this one’s heft, how it will feel in my arms. Will it feel more substantial than holding my baby nephew on my hip? Or less? Will it feel good? Will it feel overwhelming because I’ll know there is so much revision work ahead? Will I be scared of it? Will I want to rip it to shreds? Whatever it will be, I do want to be in that moment. I want to reach the last page and be able to say “I wrote a novel” instead of “I am endlessly writing a novel, when will it be over?” It’s like how I sometimes wish I could only know when I would die—I don’t even need to know how—just so I could have a sense of how much time I have left. #amwriting #authorlife #novelwriting / Painted pillow by @l_g_amador 💜 gifted by the writers in one of my @djerassiprogram workshops 💜

It’s WIP Wednesday again and I’m back with a new quote from my novel!! I’ve been spending a decent amount of time this week writing and feeling like I’m getting absolutely nowhere 😭 Last night though, I managed to get down the introductory description of a rather significant character. But who could he be? (Hint: he’s one of the book’s primary antagonists that the main characters are plotting against!) I’m very excited to write him, because he’s deliciously complex!! I hope you all get the chance to read about him someday 😊 * * QOTD: What’s your favorite type of villain? * * #wipwednesday #amwriting #yawriting #yafantasywriter #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #mywriting #writing #novelwriting
I’m finally back after a hell of a week 😩 thank u so much for 400+ followers 🌹 I hope ur all well and giving ur wip some loving! I’ve completely avoided mine and couldn’t bring myself to put a single word down after losing my princess, but my partner has been pushing me to get back to work on my story and I’m forever grateful for him for always motivating and encouraging me even through the hard times - - - #writerscommunity #write #writer #writersofinstagram #writingtips #writingmotivation #writingcommunity #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #authors #writingcommunityofig #novelwriting #writers #writingprompts #authormemes #writersofig #authorsofig #writinginspiration #fictionwriter #fanfiction #yawriter #scifiwriter #authormemes #writingmemes #creativewriter #books #novels
I meticulously plan before I start writing. I have this fear that my story is like a tower. If there’s a faulty brick half way, that means everything I’ve put on top is likely unstable. . Meaning: if I don't plan well, my story is going to fall apart. . I do practice free write and I do allow my characters to chart their own courses, but usually I go back before my rewrites and check that all those pieces are in the right places, neatly, and correctly stacked. . . #WritemindedKJ #writer #writerswrite #madewords #amwriting #amediting #writerscorner #writingcommunity #creativewriting #writersociety #authorsofinstagram #writerslife #writingtips #writingadvice #wordgasm #writtenwords #writingquotes #inspiration #writinginspiration #writenow #storytelling #ilovewriting #firstdraft #wordcount #writersblock #bookish #getwriting #wordsmith #novelwriting
