Beautiful 4 mile walk to my favorite park in #nyc after short story thoughts woke me up around 5. More writing and walking to come. Have a beautiful day and weekend! #tgif #walk #walking #morningwalk #workout #centralpark #viewfrommywalk #fitness #moveitorloseit #writing #writerslife #writersofinstagram #walkersofinstagram #weekend
I managed to put together a decent aesthetic for my debut fantasy, INK IN THE BLOOD, which comes out in 2019. Two best friends, Celia and Anya, escape their servitude as inklings (divinely-ordained tattoo artists) by joining a traveling theater troupe. Until the malicious deity they never believed in follows them. 😈 It's on Goodreads, so if you're inclined to add it... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40599835-ink-in-the-blood 🏳️‍🌈 * * * * #inkintheblood  #authorsofinstagram  #writersofinstagram  #writerslife  #novel19s  #debutauthor #ireadya  #iwriteya  #yalit  #bookstagram  #yadarkfantasy #booklove #yafantasy

When I’m attaching stamps or handles, I hang out at the back room of the pottery studio (for hours). Last 3 weeks, another lady is usually there and we make pottery together, have great chats & laughs about life, marriage, food, wine and of course pottery. We give each other feedback about what we like or dislike about what each other is doing. I’m grateful for our conversations and that the studio has great members. #fridaythoughts #patriciapotter #truthwisdomhealth #potterslife . . . . . #creative #pottery #wisewoman #writerslife #vancouverbc #stoneware #healing #grounding #lifelessons #womenartists #magicalmoment #thisismylife #handmadeinvancouver #handmadewithlove #clay #witchesofinstagram #womeninceramics #makersgonnamake #modernceramics #yvrmade #wheelthrown #pottersofinstagram #friendship

And another update.
There are writers that have the ability to touch some inner switch we didn’t know we had inside. . One of those writers has been Lucia Berlin. . I have discovered her writing only recently (incredible but true) and I cannot stop thinking about her since I finished her book of stories “A manual for cleaning women”. . She had so many stories to tell. She had the ability to transform a random conversation with a stranger at a bus stop in a beautiful exponent of the joy and hardness of living.. . Her life was full of rich stories, sometimes horribly sad, but the feeling you get reading them is that all is worth it. That life is worth living. . Thank you Lucia for leaving us your stories for eternity. . #writers #writerslife #reading #copywriting #copywriter

Sometimes when I sit in silence In the middle of the night When all that I hear is the silence of the night, I wonder if the things that I left behind Really left me Or they still live in me. Sometimes when I hear the echoing silence of the night I wonder what people really mean when they say they love me Do they mean that they care for me Even when I am at my worsts? Or they love me merely so I can be with them because they are too afraid to lose? Sometimes when I sit alone Under the little diamonds in the sky I wonder how courageous the moon is How it share its beauty with the stars And never envy them Because the moon knows that they can never compete with the beauty it possess, Sometimes when I look at the orange sky When the sun sets to rest in the arms of the sea It loves the sea so much, that it leaves the sky to rest in the arms of its depth Some nights I wonder if we become the people we love, If the sun one day will become water. // Her

Parlami, non con le parole che potresti non dire quello che io vorrei ascoltare; ovvero quelle cose che non diresti per le quali io potrei Proteggerti Avvolgerti Accoglierti. Quelle sfumature che mi renderebbero arcobaleno per colorarti e sentirmi Luce Colore Stupore. Poi piano piano dissolverò. Dissolvendo lentamente ti parlerò, e tu ascolta mentre in silenzio sparirò tra le tue braccia già sciolte nelle mie. Spariremo Per rinascere Arcobaleno.

If, one day, you happen to walk by a lush garden, roses blooming in every color, pause a moment. Steal a glance and maybe, you might see a woman standing there alone, a falcon resting upon her sleeve. She may look pensive and you’d be tempted to guess, that she seems a bit lonely, standing amid that lush garden. Truth be told she does, at times, miss the company of a man she once knew a very long time ago. But then, she turns her thoughts away, admires her lovely home, shops along the avenue or prunes her roses. She wants for nothing that money can buy but it wasn’t always so. She rarely thinks of those days when she had so little. Anyway, those memories are filled with him (her heart still aches a little) so she counts her blessings instead. What she tries not to remember (what I’m about to tell) is that, once upon a time, she was deeply in love with a man that sang sad songs for pennies in the village square. Most nights, they fell asleep intertwined, groaning, empty bellies and beating hearts, a lullaby sending them off to dreams. And for awhile they were very happy despite the gnawing hunger and poverty. As most love stories go, one event led to another and another until the man she loved seemed more other than lover. She grew to resent his lack of motivation. So, in the middle of a cold winter night, she took the last of their pennies and disappeared in the softly falling snow. She’d left to seek a better life. She’d left her heart sleeping there on the hard ground, cold snow falling down. With time, she managed turned those few cents into a fortune and she’d always meant to go back for her lover. Then one day, she heard he’d died on a cold winter night, empty belly and empty pockets, fresh snow a blanket for a sad song man. But that was such a long time ago. Namaste 🦋
Its friday! That means d&d! If im not too tired after work though...#writerslife #voiceactorlife #constructionworker
Title: Khushiya💚 In bandh darwazo kaa bhi kya kehna, Naa jaane kitne raaz chupe hai inke piche. Koi siskiya bharta hoga rote hue, Kisii ki muskurahat kaa thikana naa hoga, Naa sapno ko jakadte hue haath hoge, Bas inhe khol kar apni khushiya chun lena. ©Sanjana Mandavia PC: @mandaviasanjana Follow @mandaviasanjana #74 #thegreenink #writers #writer #writersofig #f4f #l4l #like #follow #writerscommunity #writersofindia #writersworld #writersuniverse #writersofinstagram #writerscorner #writerslife #writerssociety #writersclub #wordsgam #poetrycommunity #poetry #poet #poem #writing #hindi #kavita #hindiwriters #hindiwritersofinstagram #photography #moodygrams
#flashbackfriday Growing up in Indianapolis, I always looked forward to staying up late watching old #horrormovies with our local #horrorhost Sammy Terry. Bob Carter a.k.a. Sammy was a huge part of my childhood, from pre-school all the way through my teenage years. In fact, my first short story collection, Skull Full of Kisses, features the opening incantation spoken at the beginning of every broadcast. So many great memories! Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! #tgif #sammyterry #indianapolis #80schild #latenighthorror #amwritingfiction #horrorwriter #amwritingfantasy #darkfantasy #urbanfantasynovels #novelist #bestsellers #writerslifeforme #writersofinstagram #writerslife

Tomorrow is Elephant appreciation day.

Never so happy for Friday. First class out early. Starbucks date to ensue. Trying to make Friday a day of worry free wonderfulness if only for a little while. . Plus, today there is coffee. Lots of coffee. .
The Impenetrable Wall A wall built word by word, not by you but by the ones outside. Obscuring your vision, making you believe life is to be lived inside a circle. And were you having your own vivid dreams? – Oh my God! What a big sin! As you grow, so does the wall holding you a prisoner in your own thoughts, making you think 'What if? What if? WHAT IF'. As you continue to succumb to this imprudent rule, you are made to believe that it is your obligation to march to the beat and to never waver. But at night when everything is so quiet you search for that tranquility in vain, trying to ignore that voice at the back of your mind which whispers it’s pleas for freedom. You then slowly turn around in your mind and face that wall, a melancholic sigh escapes your lips with a shiver. My revered soul, do listen to me, this is all a delusion. You have the strength in you to see past this. Find the courage to make those whispers into a beautiful song which fills you with passion. It’s time for you to come forth from the shadows for the IMEPENETRABLE WALL is not that impenetrable after all! #criticalthinking #trynewwritings #fiction #feelings #writerslife #readandwrite #books #thegoodquotes #igpoets #igwriters #tweegram #typewriter

Here's some things I've learned along the way as I reach the one-year mark of publishing my first book of poetry, Every Watering Word. 1. Write. Every day. Carve out time for your voice. Don't sit back on the accomplishments you have achieved. As soon as you publish, KEEP WRITING. #writingisbreathingthroughink 2. As an indie author, I'm finding that you are your marketing and PR point-person. Try to participate in readings and venues as much as possible. Libraries, friend's homes, bookstores, cafes, etc. I may be stating the obvious, but I'm learning that as your own promoter you have to create spaces for your work to be seen and shared. 3. Create a network of fellow writing friends to support your plowing, progress and revisions. I have my star player and sister of decades Carla who I throw EVERYTHING at. Rough drafts, revisions, complaints, frustrations. She is awesome in her analyses and tolerance and no-joke about not letting me sit on my tush and remain immobile. My sister Fisiwe has a discerning spirit and deliberate eye that helped shaped the order of poems in my book, and how I think about writing as a transcendental and transformative experience. Conversations and messages with Tricia keep my head and heart spooling with ideas. 4. Solicit others for reviews of your work. Word of mouth, blurbs, formal and informal reviews really help to push your work out there. Be fearless in your reach, precise in your request. But please know for every 10 potential reviewers you solicit, you may only get 1 or 2 to respond. But what has been a blessing for me is that in targeting an international crowd, my work has been in the hands of so many interesting people from not only here in the USA but around the world. Dubai, Switzerland, Ontario, Quebec, Britain, Portugal and the Philippines are just a few of the locales of bloggers and bookstagrammers that have read and reviewed my work. So while I would LOVE to be on the NYT or LAT bestseller lists, I'm content (for now) that the reach of my work and its footprints are worldwide. To know my work is in the hands of so many people I have not met, WOW. Incredible and humbling. What advice can you share?
