I really hope I get out of my reading slump in time to read this this fall. It's a witch novel set in the 60's, which sounds like something I would love and the perfect read for the Halloween season! • • • Unfortunately, I'm stuck in the middle of Escaping From Houdini. Not that the book is bad--in fact I really like it! I just have a lot more stuff that I need to do and personal goals I've set that I'm hoping to meet. Once those are all good, then I will get back to reading more often! • • • #bookstagram #book #booklover #bookworm #bookhoarder #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookcover #bookish #booklovers #writing #writer #writersofinstagram #writers #writersofig #writinglife #writingislife #writerslife #author #authorsofinstagram #authorsofig #authorlife #authorlife #authors #youngauthor #youngwriters #yaauthor #amwriting #bookstagrammer
Alabama morning. . I remember being an MFA in 2007 or so and being sent to pick up a Real Live Writer from the airport with a friend. She was easy going about the whole thing, made pleasant small talk as though a writer is just an ordinary person. I sat, silent, in the back seat. Terrified. . Writers weren't real when I was a kid. They were celebrities, and so possibly fantastic, like unicorns or Santa Claus. Books? How were they made? I don't know. Magic. The words and stories in my head had no connection with the books I carried home from the library, the ones I traded in for at the used book shop. Even after Starglass sold, I remember meeting Libba Bray at a book event, my hands trembling, my voice squeaking out muffled and strange. I remember her generosity with me, and will carry it always. . Now, I fly places, I shake hands, I speak more or less easily to people who are like I was, once. Struck silent, because a writer is sort of like a magician, right? Now I can act like a person. Writers are people. . I am a writer and no longer a scared, shy, awestruck kid. Mostly. But that kid is still inside me and that kid will always think that this whole prospect--my adult life, waking up in places like this, drinking my coffee and fiddling quietly with my words in spaces between other experiences--is absolutely magical. ✨ . . . #writing #writinglife #writersofinstagram #author #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #booklover #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #alabama #morningvibes #morning #mood #autumn #yalit #yalovin #youngadult #youngadultauthor #instagood #vscolovers #vscogood #vscogram #naturallight
स्मशानात प्रेत जळत असताना, कवटी फुटेपर्यंत त्याच कुणी ना कुणी, रात्रभर तिथे बसलेल असत. आज रावणाला जाळल गेल. त्याच्यावर तो अग्नीबाण सोडताना राम नामाचा एकच जल्लोष झाला होता. पुढल्याच क्षणी आपल्या दहा तोंडांसकट तो त्या आगीच्या भक्ष्यस्थानी पडला. त्याच सार शरीर ज्वाळांनी वेढलेल होत. समोरची ती किड्यामुंग्यासारखी दिसणारी लोक भयंकर खुश दिसत होती. पण जसजसा तो खाली कोसळु लागला तसतशी ती अफाट गर्दी कमी होऊ लागली. अखेर तो लाकडी सांगाडा पूर्ण खाली कोसळलला आणि निखार्यांशी एकरूप झाला. पण आता समोर कुणीच नव्हत. आता या रामराज्यात रावणाच्या चितेशेजारी कोण बसणार ना?? पण मला राहावल गेल नाही. मी तिथे जायच ठरवल. . . मला दुरुनच त्या निखार्यांची धग जाणवु लागली. मी अजुन जवळ गेलो आणि बसलो. आजुबाजुला कुणीच नव्हत. दुरवर काही लोक दारुच्या बाटल्या तोंडाला लावुन आपल्याच नशेत मग्न होती. "अधर्म पर धर्म कि जीत" चा आनंद साजरा करण्यासाठी काहीतरी हवच ना. यातले कितीतरी लोक घरी जाऊन आपल्या बायकांना मारतील, चोऱ्या करतील, बलात्कार करतील. म्हणजे इथे एका रावणाला जाळुन, आपण वाइटाला संपवल आहे असा आव आणुन मग स्व्तःच, या कलयुगातला रावण होतील. . . वाऱ्याची एक मंद झुळूक वाहिली आणि समोरच्या चितेतली जराशी राख उडून माझ्याकडे आली. मी ती हातात घेतली. त्याच क्षणी मला रावणाच्या अफाट कर्तुत्वाची जाणीव होत गेली. त्यात त्याच प्रचंड ज्ञान, विलक्षण शक्ती आणि त्याने केलेले अदभुत पराक्रम, सार सार काही होत. पण त्याचसोबत मला त्यात गर्वाचा आणि "मी"त्वाचा एक निखारा पुन्हा पेट घेताना दिसला. चटका बसण्याआधीच मी माझे हात झटकले. पण तस करताना माझ्या मनात असलेल्या "मी" पणाच्या वृत्तिच गाठोडही मी टाकून दिल. थोड्याच वेळात ती राख शांत होऊन मातीशी एकरूप झाली. . . #writing #creativewriting #writingcommunity #writinglife #writings #amwriting #writingtips #writingchallenge #writinginspiration #instawriting #scriptwriting #lovewriting #writingthefuture #writingislife #writingsession #keepwriting #igwriting #writingofinstagram #mythology #marathi #fiction

I absolutely love Anne Rice. I didn’t start reading her until the Interview with a Vampire movie came out, but it got me hooked on that series. I have her Lives of the Mayfair Witches series in my #tbr pile. Do you have another world that feels more real to you?

Congratulations on your gorgeous cover, Pagan! #Repost @p.s.malcolm (@get_repost ) ・・・ I am SO EXCITED to finally reveal the cover for Lanterns In The Sky 💛✨👑 . (Lanterns In The Sky is book one in the Starlight Chronicles Series) . Everything was normal for Lucy Maisfer until the day a star fell from the sky and knocked her out. Upon waking, she comes face-to-face with Jason Woods, who also happens to be the mysterious new guy in her best friend, Valarie's, life. . Then the strange dreams begin, and she learns about the Starlight Princess— who must not under any circumstance be reawakened. Driven to uncover the meaning of it, she finds herself caught up in a strange twist of events that eventually lead to bigger danger than she ever anticipated. Before long, Lucy is forced to make a choice between saving the world, or saving her best friend; only to discover that Valarie cannot be saved... that she has an even darker secret, and that her supposed star-crossed romance with Jason might not be so destined after all... . . . . . #starlightchronicles #starlightchroniclesseries #lanternsinthesky #fantasy #yafantasy #yaauthor #fantasyauthor #fantasyauthors #youngauthors #fantasybookcovers #youngauthor #writinglife #prettybookcovers #fictionwriter #fictionauthor #yafictionauthor #yafictionwriter #aussieauthors #writerslife #writersoninsta #authorsoninstagram #authorlife #covereveal #bookcover
Silent streets often straighten out the voids within me.
Clouded Happiness Our happiness can So quickly evaporate, Distilled to clouds, Scudding to far horizons. Distant, lost. But those clouds always return. Ready to soak us In forgotten pleasures. We only need to wait patiently, To stand smiling in the rain. _____________________________ #poetry #poems #igpoetry #poetrycommunity #poemsoninstagram #writing #writingcommunity #writersnetwork #writinglife #spilledink #sadness #happiness #emotions #mindful #mindfulness #mindfulthoughts #clouds #images #memories #thoughts #words

A day with yourself, a day for yourself. No one around, but just you and your soul. You would do everything to make yourself feel happy, free, and relaxed. Plug on the playlist your feet crave to dance upon. Make the coffee your throat waits to gulp. Wear the dress you feel most comfortable in. Tie your hair the way each strand of it would go on with the wind. Mess up around a bit, it's worth sometimes. Let yourself to know yourself, aren't you tired of explaining yourself to others, always? - Yukti Grover . . . . #newtheme #poetry #lovepoetry #peotryisnotdead #poems #writing #writinglife #writers #writersofinstagram #poemsofig #poetryworld #poetrybyme #artlinestix #poetry #poets #words #write #wordsarelife #strong #livepoems #theme #new #like #like4like #poetryinmotion #poemsofinstagram #poetess #bymepoetry #themusersquare #tmswriter

Effie Trinket is celebrating, not because her tributes won but because I finished the first draft of my current novel! 🎈 Now onto the second draft...
I let my good habits slip this past month on eating and it killed my good mood and motivation. I'm back to it now. Don't ever beat yourself up over slipping up or failing, just get back to it. No sense in making it worse. I am done with the negativity. Old-fashioned oatmeal with banana, cinnamon, ground flax seed, chia seeds, and almond milk. #yum #sogood #eatingbetter #IGotthis #diabetessucks #NoNegativity #fiber #writinglife #vegas #authorlife #A1Clife #breakfastofchampions #Needfuel #nondairy #dairyfree #leakygut #Vegaslife
I spend so much time writing that I’ve worn down the keys. #writinglife #bookstagram
I have never been very fond of visiting the old places and structures in my city. It never came to me that I should be or it was never the requirement or desire ever. So two of my friends and I were recently on a hunting spree for locations to shoot something exciting, the idea however dropped later due to unavoidable reasons. While riding during the peak hour of the day, getting accustomed to the sunburns and sweat, we came across some beautiful old structures standing in the heart of the city. This building was one of them! The wall paint chapped off, windows and doors beyond mending, staircases broken, with a few people living in some parts of it, the whole structure however had an old charm of its own. But that’s not what I am trying to tell you here. I have a simple question to ask! How often do you visit such places? And if you do, what do you when you happen to see them? Do you tell them your story? Do you talk to them about you? Do you let them into your life? . . . Do not narrate your story. Do not tell about your life or about you. You already have a lot of people to pay attention to you. Instead listen to these structures. Hear the walls speak. Hear the windows and the doors telling you their lore. They have hidden secrets and untold mysteries peeking from behind. Try unveiling them. They have a lot to speak but no one to hear. Listen to the silence. Sit quietly and take in the old, rustic air. They have tales from beyond your world. Listen. Feel. Absorb. Repeat. They have stories, hundreds of years old! All you have to do is be quiet and enter their world! . . . #likhnewaliwomaniya #wordsandpictures #storiestotell #punestories #punekar #puneri #beingpuneri #punecity #punediaries #pune_ig #oldbuildings #oldstructures #storiestohear #storiefromthepast #writingtales #writinglife #writingpune #punewriters #storiesandpeople #foodpeopletravel #peopleandplaces #peopleandculture #puneinstagrammers #pune_igers #punewriters
This bracelet reminds me of Delilah’s tats in Savage Redemption. The stars and natural imagery are so her, like her open and optimistic nature. Even when life gets her down, she remembers to look up and see the bright side.
If there is a story stirring in you, write it. Use paper and pen, a napkin, your phone, tablet or computer. It won't be perfect at first, but the key is to write. Tell your story, someone wants and needs to read it. Just Write! . . . . . #mawriterlife #writinglife #writerlife #writerslife #writingtips #amwriting #keepwriting #keepcalm #youcandoit #enjoythejourney
I actually created on my own book cover (artisans) for this year’s NaNoWriMo. And my goal is to stay FOCUSED and complete the first draft of my story without straying elsewhere with my thoughts. I realized time isn’t waiting on anyone, so I need to pour my heart ❤️and soul into this project before my girls get out in their own. My middle child is in her last year of high school and already asking a lot of questions about life after 🎓graduation. My baby girl is in the 7th grade, growing just as fast and facing a few new challenges of her own as she transitions through puberty. I feel if I don’t get this project finished by the end of the year I would somehow fail to give my kids a gift of written wisdom from one generation to the next,simply because I can express life in words written more so than spoken. However make no mistake, I constantly speak life into my girls everyday. But having a tangible reminder to reflect upon when needed, would be an affirmation between conversations of the heart. . . . #nanowrimoprep #nanowrimo #writing #preptober #amwriting #igwriters #writinglife #nonfictionbooks #instawrimo

Happy Thursday! Did you guys see Venom? What did you think about it? If you wanna see what I thought about the movie, and whether you should watch it or not, head over to my blog! It's free! 😉😁 . Link: www.gamingswordsman. com (also on my bio). . In other news, I'm finally back on my feet after wasting away in bed for a week and a half due to a heavy case of the flu. 😩🤧😭 . Cool thing about being down for so long was that I was able to fully finish Assassin's Creed Origins. (Only took 72 hours, lol) 😅 I'll dedicate a post to that soon! Hope you all have a great day! . . . . . .

// Because of that one person! Because of that one person You're feared to get attached again to someone! Because of that one person You're scared to put yourself again into someone Because of that one person You're are now afraid to face wreaks Because of that one person You're now not stronger enough to face heartbreaks! But why is it so? Why you're afraid to live again? Again on your own terms? Again with your own freedom? Again with the pride you always desires off? Again with the respects you're always seeking for. Is this because... That one person is now no longer a part of your life? Or, is this because that one person is the only reason you were alive? Why not you starting living for yourself? Why are you still living for that one person? A person who'd harmed you! A person who had damaged you mentally! A person who'd played with your feelings physically! Why? What's the reason behind? Why can't you give up & starts a new living? Is this a part of your love or as if it had become hard for you to be tough! Why don't you think for yourself? Why don't you give a try, instead of these continuous cry! You'd to be strong, you'd to believe That one person is not the only reason to live! Wake up now! Take a new call! This is not the end Raise yourself up, before you fall. Yes you've suffered a lot! Your pain can't be described But still there's lot more to do And there are many reasons to survive Just give yourself a try! And don't let that person be a reason for your cry! Just stand & try! Just stand & try! You've many reasons to live Don't waste your feelings for a person Who'd left your side! Just give yourself a try! Just give yourself a try! . . . ... #goodreads #quotes #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #instaquote #wordgasm #wordporn #quotestags #quotesdaily #wordsofwisdom #wordstoliveby #writersofindia #indiagram #writersblock #quotesaboutlife #spilledink #writerscommunity #vscocam #writinglife #wordsoflife #lovequotes #wordswithqueens #wordswithkings #tflers
