So... at 3:00 this morning I had a full blown anxiety attack. I've been under so much stress and the weight of life just took its toll. One of the things I was hyperventilating over was my book release. It's one month away, and I swear I feel so vulnerable, but at the same time I feel so blessed. Thank you to my team of fri-ounselors, who started listening to me a 6ish this morning. I love you all.❤ Fyi... I think it's a Xanax night tonight.😊
So when writing sex, I usually do it where it's lasts a long time. Where there is like a good page or more of a romp in the sheets and both people are 1000% satisfied.
This time, it's more real. Kids interrupting while having sex by yelling MOM at the tops of their lungs. 🤣🤣🤣 the MC's will still have their fun though. #momlife #writerslife #bookeight #acastreworldnovel #fantasyromance #romancehumor
happy birthday @xxxtentacion
this world couldn’t handle the magnificent force and energy you were ready to bring. rest in love. ☁️🎈
I hope you’ve had a good hump day!
I’m going through a rather rough season right now, y’all. Once the air clears a little I will share more, but until that time— just going to keep on keeping on.
I wrote a blog post today about “making time in the new year” and would love for you to read it! Follow the link in my profile to do just that.

Some people want you to stay broken so they can feel better about themselves. Real friends lift you up and encourage your growth.
The amount of unnecessary stress and pressure us humans often carry is staggering.
However, no one can force us to carry that backpack. We picked up that bag ourselves.
But that also means we have total power to take it off and run downhill whenever we choose🌠
Just a person who follows you around and takes pictures for you, buuuuuut... Hello plot bunnies. 👀
“Still life of author’s night” because...Hedgehog pajama pants. Hedgehog pajama pants!!! 🦔🦔🦔 Plus one sleepy puppy and one puppy way too awake 👀 and watching. (And the healing foot is looking good, too.)
Seattle knows it’s my Bday tomorrow 🎉🎉 Clearing skies & sun ☀️ coming my way!!
“I am certainly the most fortunate creature that ever existed!” - Jane Bennet // truthfully, I am the most fortunate creature that’s ever existed, because I am surrounded by a group of people as extraordinary as all of you. I appreciate each and every loyal person that follows me, even though I’ve been inconsistent with posting and writing in general. THANK YOU ALL. 💛 // on another note, I finished Pride and Prejudice today and...y’all😭 I almost cried in the middle of my school’s hall! P&P is so much better than I remember and I highlighted SO MUCH. if you’ve been hesitating whether or not to read it, I strongly suggest that you do!
I want to start over. Well, kind of.
I see a lot of posts on Twitter that say something along the lines of “One day I just decided I no longer wanted to feel that way, so I changed my life.” But it doesn’t really work that way, does it? Not when you have a mental illness that’s hellbent on ruining your life. The amount of times I’ve written in my journal that things were going to change and then, four entries later, reveal that things didn’t in fact change is embarrassing.
But today was hopeful. I still woke up at 1, but I ate and took my meds. I’ve now weaned down to 5 mg of Lexapro, which I have a sneaking suspicion is the cause of my recurring mental breakdowns. I brainstormed for a side project I’m working on while I take a break from my manuscript, and well…I’m writing this. It’s something. Actually, after the depressive episode I had yesterday and again at 5 a.m. today, it’s more than something.
P.S. This book, Solitaire by Alice Oseman, wasn’t my favorite by her (I still ship Sprolden tho). It’s partially because it’s advertised as the Catcher in the Rye (my favorite classic!!!!!) of the digital age but it wasn’t like Catcher at all. And I would know because I’ve read it 4 times.
Either way, this was Alice’s first novel that she wrote when she was 17. I enjoyed her other book, Radio Silence, a lot more. You can see how much she’s improved over the years, and I’m looking forward to reading I Was Born For This!
The Signs as Writers! 🌌Does this capture your sign and writing style? Or is it way off? ♌️ I’m a Leo and it’s pretty close, though I missed some character backgrounds in my last draft. 😜
Ah, mentari menyapa hangat "selamat pagi" hari ini. 🌞
