The “Ahhhhhh....” I let out when I yanked off my boots here might have woken some of these dead Danish people... ⠀ The Assistens Cemetery in Nørrebro was probably the most peaceful place I found in the whole city. Good place to write as well. I saw several people sitting in between graves, typing away on their laptops. ⠀ 🇩🇰🇩🇰🇩🇰 ⠀ #writersofinstagram #writersofig #amwriting #writingcommunity #authorlife #novelist #novel #bookstagram #bibliophile #writing #amreading #writerslife #creativewriting #indieauthor #amediting #nanowrimo #bookworm #poetry #blogger #bloggersofinstagram #writingblog #novelwriting #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #denmark #copenhagen #denmark 🇩🇰 #nørrebro #assistenskirkegård

Day 22 of the #instawrimo September #nanowrimoprep #photochallenge is "banned books" and one of my favorite #book series, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, just happens to land on that list. "Censorship and the suppression of reading materials are rarely about family values and almost always about control, about who is snapping the whip, who is saying no, and who is saying go." - Stephen King @nanowrimo #nanowrimo #bannedbooks #bookseries #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookcover #books #instabooks #bibliophile #booklove #reader #read #readnow #booksarelife

I’m a little behind on #instawrimo posts! Yesterday’s prompt was “dedication,” and I think that Mark Danielewski’s in House of Leaves is the first that struck me as really distinct from many of the personal dedications I’d seen before. As a #reader , it was a moment that prompted me to think of my relationship with the #writer , and that opened my writer’s mind to new possibilities. #nanoprep #nanowrimo #bookworm #bookstagram #writersofinstagram #houseofleaves #writerslife

Finally caught up! #InstaWriMo Day 22’s theme is “Banned Book”. Brewmancer and the rest of the stories of that world deal with censorship, but I wanted to choose a real book instead. I unfortunately have not read all of Ulysses by James Joyce yet, but I do find the style to be absolutely fascinating. So, yeah. It was banned in a few different countries, so we’re just going to go with this one. 🍻 . . #Writing #AmWriting #Writer #NaNoWriMo #NaNoWriMo2019 #NationalNovelWritingMonth #NationalNovelWritingMonth #Novel #Novella #Book #Books #Bookstagram #Fantasy #FirstDraft #Brewmancer #Magic #MagicSystems #Screenwriting #Screenwriter #Screenplay #Script

#InstaWriMo Day 21’s theme was “Novel Dedication”. There are way more people who belong on this list than would fit in one post. Knowing that ahead of time, I decided to do a bit of cherry picking and just group people up. If you think you belong on this list, you do, but I just wanted all groups represented haha I promise you mean as much as everybody else on here :) Here we have important people, family, and friends who encouraged my creativity relentlessly. There are 3 professors who pushed me and helped me to graduate from Cedarville even if it felt like sometimes there would be no possible way. Two artists who have created magnificent pieces for me, @brandonpalas and @brossu_ . They’ve given life to my vision(s) in ways I never could. 4 authors who build magnificent worlds of wonder and inspire future generations to bleed ink out onto the page. Brewmancer is dedicated to all of them and it’s dedicated to all of you. Thank you all for who you are and who you choose to be. :) You’re the ones who create my [inevitable] success. . . #Writing #AmWriting #Writer #NaNoWriMo #NaNoWriMo2019 #NationalNovelWritingMonth #NationalNovelWritingMonth #Novel #Novella #Book #Books #Bookstagram #Fantasy #FirstDraft #Brewmancer #Magic #MagicSystems #Screenwriting #Screenwriter #Screenplay #Script

I have a bit of catching up to do! Sorry for the back to back to back posts. #InstaWriMo Day 20’s theme was “Sands of Time”. Nearing the end of September means that Preptober is nearly here and NaNoWriMo starts soon after 😁. Getting closer by the minute to hopefully finishing a FULL draft of Brewmancer 🙌🏻🍻 . . #Writing #AmWriting #Writer #NaNoWriMo #NaNoWriMo2019 #NationalNovelWritingMonth #NationalNovelWritingMonth #Novel #Novella #Book #Books #Bookstagram #Fantasy #FirstDraft #Brewmancer #Magic #MagicSystems #Screenwriting #Screenwriter #Screenplay #Script

I'm catching up on the #instawrimo challenge. Today is all about banned books. This may not be the original cover of this edgy and adventurous novel, but it was the cover of the book that was given to us in high school. I loved this book as a young woman who was open to reading everything I could get my hands on. I couldn't imagine it be banned for glorified criminal activity the year of my birth (1974). Would it be banned today? What books do you love that have been banned? Thank you for being here with me! - - - #nanowrimo #writingprompts #writingcommunity #writing #writinglife #creative #booklover

👑 • A H I M • D E S T I • 👑 My baby boy! Gosh, as much of a sidekick-archetype he is, I could probably write a little novella on him if I wanted to. He’s one of my most difficult characters along with Ryagi and Isemay simply because I envision him with a little bit of ADHD, which I need to do some research on. Anyway, he’s Traenira’s cousin who she lives with because her family was killed in the Solari Council raid and basically her best friend. He went to military school, so he can fight if he wants, but he’s actually a big pacifist. His connections and knowledge from the school really help them in their breakout mission. Like I said, he’s a pacifist, so he will drop anything and forget all of his troubles to help someone and that’s what I really love about him! 🥰 Comment if you want to know anything more or have a question! 💛 • Tags • #jennamwritesoc #writersofinstagram #writersofig #amwriting #amediting #ilovewriting #writerscommunity #writers #nanowrimo #character #aesthetic #oc #bookish #novel #bibliophile

AMIGOS! I’ve been in Mexico for 3 weeks! I’ve enjoyed my time in Cozumel - I’ve scootered around the island (a bit of a harrowing experience), snorkeled beautiful beaches, got my PADI (!!!), read several books and had some tasty margaritas. 🌞 I’ve also started outlining a story idea I’ve been kicking around that I want to tackle for #NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month - November - lots of crazy people attempt to write a 50k+ word novel in a month). I’ve never participated before but this year I’mma go for it! 🌞 Next stop is the small coastal town of Akumal. Akumal translates to “Bay of Turtles.” A sea grass that grows in the bay keeps many sea turtles in the area year round. Can’t wait to snorkel with them! 🐢🐢 . . . . . . . . . . #shewhowanders #traveldreamseekers #thewanderingtourist #travelhappy #travelingourplanet #travellist #ultimatetraveltales #travelanddiscover #livefortravel #NaNoWriMo2019 #NaNoWriMoPrep #discoverunder500 #writersaround #igwritingcommunity

Lylasha, Guardian of Chaos. #chroniclesoflosaya #severedfates #silenteternity The very first Saint of Energy, Seer, and hardened mage, Lylasha, aided Nephyrina and Cyprien on their mission on save Losaya from Silas, the Great Dark Mage, and protect the Sole God, Bel. But Lylasha's involvement in their story is not all that it seems, but this is not discovered until well over 2000 years later (Severed Fates, after new gods have succeeded Nephyrina and Cyprien) when she confesses a secret to the once God-of-Chaos, Cyprien. Is her relation to Silas a coincidence, or something more? . . . . . . . #fantasy #fantasyart #faerie #elven #elves #nanowrimo2019 #nanowrimo #nanoprep #digitalart #ocs #originalcharacter #characterdesign #sorceress #heterochromia #drawing #ilovefantasyart

Day 22: Banned book I read A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess this summer and absolutely loved it, especially the Nadsat language used by the main character. I would love to create slang like that to use in my #nanowrimo2019 novel. I read that Burgess created his own slang so the language of the book would not make it feel dated. Also pictured here is my banned books mug. Of the 24 listed, I've read only 6 and am in the process of reading 2 more (Ulysses and Les Miserables). The number one reason I'm against the banning of books, especially in schools, is that they can promote empathy. Readers can encounter characters going through difficult situations they might never experience themselves. Of course, reading about violence and abuse has nowhere near the same emotional impact as living through it, but I would rather read about these things than go through life with a blind eye toward what others must endure every day. #InstaWrimo #nanowrimo #nationalnovelwritingmonth #writersofig #writersofinstagram #amwriting #amreading #bannedbooksweek

You can’t fully bloom when confined, no matter the surroundings. You will never realize your full potential hiding in the shadows, shrinking from challenges or not taking risks. The bars that surround you can be of your own making and will hold you back from blossoming into the creative, talented and inspiring version you are meant to be. Standing on the sidelines are okay for some, but why not jump in the game and give it your best? It’s only this lifetime you’ve been given, so live it to the fullest. — C. Toni Graham ✨ Hope your Sunday is turning out to be a #funday and you are blooming to your heart’s content. ✨ ✨ ✨ QOTD: What’s your favorite time of the year and why? ✨ I love Autumn. The leaves changing colors are such a beautiful site. The cooler weather means sweaters and warm drinks, stews and comfy socks. A feeling of comfort settles in before the holiday frenzy. A time to breathe a sigh of contentment. Yes, Fall is my favorite season. 🍁 🍂 ✨ 🍁 🍂 ✨ #blooms #autumn #comfy #contentment #confinedspace #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #amwriting #nanowrimo #amediting #ilovewriting #authorlife #writerscorner #writerscommunity #ctonigraham #tonistalk

I'm running out of things to write. Or it's more like there's so much to write that it overwhelms me and I can't choose what's the most important. There's an overflow of pretty details and magical little crooks and corners and stories around me waiting to be told. I woke up this morning with a dream that I instantly wrote down, and as I flipped through my recent scribblings in my tiny travel notebook, I realized I've done that multiple times this week. Just woken up and instantly written out a random scene from my brain and onto the paper. I've been so lazy with writing lately--ok, maybe not lazy, more like preoccupied with everything else. I have just tried to not think about my stories too much because I want to focus on the people around me and make some new friends (who I can then later ignore completely when I lock myself in my room and write an entire novel in November for nanowrimo loool). But I like this new surprise creativity. It's a nice timing. I enjoy waking up with inspiration and remembering those movie-like dreams in the morning. I want to write more. Scribble and daydream and type little scenes here and there and tie them together like a wordsmith with a magical thread. I know smiths don't work with thread but nobody says "word tailor", so you have to just get my point anyway. It's honestly been super hard to not be writing when everything around me is so super duper beautiful looking and magical. I even took a veeery long walk to the woods today and snapped some amazing photos (wasn't hard, the trees looked like they were alive and breathing with fairy dust) that I'll show you later once I've edited them 👵🌳 Just keep daydreaming wildly and tell those stories, my dear writer friends ✨

For today’s #instawrimo , I’m going personal: banned books. When I was in elementary school and completing the work so much faster than the other kids, and my parents refused to talk about skipping me ahead, my second grade teacher helped me decide to always have a book. I read A LOT of books that way, and the only one my parents hesitated on (when like ... I read sooooo many things before I hit double-digits that might not‘ve been the best choice) was Pet Sematary. Jurassic Park, 1984, The Three Musketeers, sure, but when I pointed to Pet Sematary I was told “Um ... maybe when you’re older.” @nanowrimo #nanowrimo

"History is a matter of perspective. There are at least as many tales as there are participants." "There are few unbroken threads, no fully developed tales of histories. There are too many secrets and occlusions, too many reasons to forget the past. And there are forces which do not want us to remember, do not want us to take fragments and complete them, to restore them to some fuller life." -David Mura, Where the Body Meets Memory I've always been interested in the ways that history is differently remembered by different people, not to mention how differently they are narrated and passed on to next generations. David Mura's very personal exploration of the way histories have created memories that have impacted his understanding and experience of the body was just so beautifully laid out. Couldn't have picked a better book to read this weekend! It's also been a tremendous inspiration for my memoir project. I might try drafting it during Nanowrimo! #weekendreads #readinglife #pmreading #readingallthetime #readingmemoir #writingmemoir #writinginspiration #nanoprep #nanoprep2019 #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2019 #memory #race #sexuality #davidmura #wherethebodymeetsmemory #memoir #history #asianamerican #asianamericanhistory #japaneseamerican #japaneseamericanhistory #writersofig #readersofig #writingcommunity #readingcommunity #readingtowrite #lifeofagradstudent #studygram #writinglife

Day 22 of #InstaWrimo Banned book Since Harry Potter made the headlines again within the last few weeks for being banned at a school, I choose Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I can't believe we live in a world where banning books is still a thing in 2019, but here we are. My childhood and teen years wouldn't have been the same without the Harry Potter series. Out of it came some of my favorite characters: Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood, and of course, Severus Snape. 💚 . . . #nanowrimo2019 #nanowrimo #writingprompts #nationalnovelwritingmonth #nanoprep #amwriting #writersofig #amrevising #journal #journaladdict #writersofinsta #bookstagram #amreading #bannedbooks #harrypotter #severussnape #bannedbooksweek

While my "brand" is #WomenofFire it's important to understand what that means. Standing in your truth, being strong, courageous, etc does not mean we can't be hurt or can't feel broken at times. Life is a journey and we go through everything, what matters most is how we handle it when life does throw us those ugly curveballs...what do we do when we're faced with giving up or pushing forward? Being knocked down does not = weakness. Getting back up...that is strength.

New idea means new notebook 🤗💚 With each new project, I start a notebook that becomes my bible—literally. It contains everything I might need to start writing, from character sheets to research I made to develop various elements of the story. There is even a section where I write different ideas, whether they are reminders of things I want to include or sentences I might want to use. 📗 Yes, you have guessed correctly, I am a plotter! I will never be able to just sit and write something without a proper notebook… I tried. 📗 Do you have one? If so, what do you write in it? • "Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion.

The start of a new week for me and back to work tomorrow... I have the week planned around my work hours to fit in some writing and planning. I'm at one of those funny stages where all my current WIP are kinda out of my hands, it's a very strange thing not to have something specific to fiddle with. - So, I have taken to starting my planning for what will be my @nanowrimo project this year - it will be the first draft of the third novel to my new urban fantasy series and I can't wait to get started! I did some basic character planning notes the other day, printed some pictures and decided on characteristics and personality traits that I would need as a trying point. - I'm not really much of a planner, I'm much more a pantser, but I do keep notes as I write and often have some of the basics down. I already know the storyline so a basic plot outline will also go in there before I begin writing... - A question that seems to be circulating recently is how do you plan/track your progress? By word count, chapters, hours sitting by the laptop? And I have found recently that my plans have had to change again. Whilst working on my last project, what I hope was the final draft, I was working chapter by chapter - but now I have found time is a key for me until a word count comes into play! - Apologies for the long post there - if you've stayed with me, thank you! What's on your to do list this week?

DAG 21: NOVEL DEDICATION Okay. Jeg ved virkelig ikke, hvem jeg skal dedikere min historie til endnu, men jeg skal da gerne sige, hvem der har været en stor hjælp gennem min skrivetid. Den første er Skriverejsen og Lene Dybdahl. Det har været en stor hjælp til idéudvikling, og jeg har ENDELIG lært at lave mindmaps! Og jeg har fundet så mange flere handlingstråde end jeg egentlig havde i forvejen. Det hjælper mig virkelig at have en slags “rettesnor” at gå efter, når jeg skriver. Så jeg kan gøre tingene trin for trin. Næste er NaNoWriMo-gruppen på Facebook. Den har været en stor hjælp til at udvikle min grundidé samt finde ud af hvorfor Helena havde været i fængse samt hvordan hun skal udvikle sig gennem historien. Sidste er mine skrivevenner fra henholdsvist Forfattersprinterne, Camp NaNo og min Skype-ven K. De er bare altid der, når man har brug for dem, og er altid klar til at hjælpe med at løse plotmæssige (OG personlige) problemer. #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2019 #2019 #dag21 #noveldedication #nano #nanoprep #nanopreptime #facebook #lenedybdahl #skriverejsen #forfattersprinterne #CampNaNo #Skype #K
