QOTD: you’re going to write a book, what’s it going to be about?! A: I’m currently working on a paranormal romance/finding yourself, and have a dystopian burning away in my brain also . . Happy Monday, my sweets! I hope that everyone has had a fantastic start to their week 😊 I worked my tushy off today and now I am EXHAUSTED but happy. Is 745 too early to go to bed? No? Good! 😂 I’m going to curl up with my book and then get myself to sleep! . . My sincerest apologies to those of you who were looking for some classic Janean puns, Dad-jokes, or general salty/sweetness/sassiness, you’ll have to wait and see what tomorrow brings us 😉 . . #qotd #peptalksforwriters #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2018 #typewriter #secondstarlit #secondstarlitunboxing #writerintraining #amwriting #writersofinstagram #bookstagrammer #canadianbibliophiles #bibliophile #bookworm #booklover #bookish #bookishlove #readersofinstagram #canadianbookstagrammer #canadianbookworm #igreads #booksofig #booksofinsta #bookstabeavers #booknerd #canadianbookies #Canadianbookstagram

“How much time did you spend at the setting of your historical novel? “Could you interview any eye witnesses?” “How has this impacted your writing?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all know that these questions will arise. You literary agent will ask them. Your publisher will ask them. The people attending your public readings will ask them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to write a great historical novel, you must see the setting of it with your own eyes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Favourite Research trip #6 : Alesia in France. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's an ancient Gallia city where Julius Caesar fought. Today, they teach at the Archaeological Park how Roman Soldiers fought. How their way of fighting changed throughout the centuries. It. Was. Mindblowing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I learned LOADS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Highly recommended, if you travel #Burgundy in France. Especially if you want to write a novel set in Gallia, or in the Roman Empire. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #CampNaNoWriMo #creativewomen #creativewriting #InstaWrimo #instawriter #keepwriting #historicalfiction #histfic #NaNoWriMo #nanowrimo2018 #nanowrimo2019 #nanowrimoprep #WFWA #womensfiction #womenwhowrite #womenwriters #writerscommunity #writerscorner #writerslife #writersnetwork #writersofig #writersofinstagram #nationalnovelwritingmonth #tenminutetimetravel #adoptanovel ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @NaNoWriMo @passagestothepast @womenwriterswomensbooks @writerposts @tallpoppywriters

🖋САМЫЙ ЧЕСТНЫЙ ОТЗЫВ...🖋 🔏Марианна Станиславская @gamat_nocks «Страна снов»; Честно сказать очень волнительно писать отзыв на книгу, которой ещё предстоит увидеть и удивить мир. Помните я вам рассказывала про литературный марафон #nanowrimo2018 , рамках которого нужно написать за месяц роман общей сложностью 50 000 слов. Так вот, хочу вам признаться, что меня хватило всего на 20 000, а вот моя подруга Марианна смогла! Не знаю где этот до безумия занятой человек брал силы, время и вдохновение, но отметка 50 000 слов была достигнута, а мне выпала честь стать первым читателем ее произведения. Черт, это было так волнительно. «А что если мне не понравится?», «А если не понравится, то как мне сказать об этом? Обмануть? Да, нет, я же обещала быть честной», - все эти мысли терзали меня пока я держала в руках рукопись, но прочитав первые 3 главы я поняла, что бояться-то нечего, ведь книга получилась хорошая. Прикольный сюжет про исправительный интернат для малолетних преступниц, в котором творятся совсем странные вещи, поглощает с первых страниц. Тебе становится безумно интересно, что творится в головах этих милых девушек, которые в реальности одни из самых жестоких убийц в мире. Почему за всю историю интерната, только одной счастливице удалось стать выпускницей, а все остальные исчезали словно их и не было там никогда. И самое главное, есть ли хоть малейший шанс сбежать оттуда не попав прямиком на электрический стул. Сюжет держит в напряжении, загадки разгадываются, а правда ужасает, как и открытый финал. И хотя книге ещё нужна хорошая редактура и небольшая доработка сюжетных линий, в целом очень достойное произведение, которое, я очень надеюсь, в самом ближайшем будущем выйдет в печатном варианте. А я от себя рекомендую его потом приобрести или уговорить автора выслать вам электронный вариант в самое ближайшее время!) И все это чистая правда😉

Hey ihr 😊 Ich bin über die #zeilentanzchallenge gestolpert und dachte mir, es ist eine gute Möglichkeit, euch mein Buch vorzustellen. Wie manche vielleicht schon in meinen Post über mein NaNo Projekt gelesen haben, habe ich den NaNo dieses Jahr genutzt und an einem Projekt gearbeitet. Was soll ich sagen? Der November ist vorbei und die Überarbeitung ist so gut wie fertig. Ein genaues Veröffentlichungsdatum habe ich noch nicht, aber es wird vermutlich Anfang bis Mitte Januar rauskommen. Mein NaNo Projekt trägt den Titel "Feenis Alberon", welcher der Stadtname ist, in dem das Buch spielt. Den Untertitel verrate ich noch nicht 🙈 aber was ich sagen kann ist, dass es mehrere Teile werden und dieses nur das Auftaktbuch ist 😁 Das Genre ist Fantasy. Ein sehr weit gefasster Begriff, aber durchaus passend 😉 Weiteres erfahrt ihr unter den nächsten Posts. Ich will ja auch noch nicht zu viel verraten 😉😁😊 (Eigenwerbung) #feenisalberon #zeilentanzchallenge #autorleben #schreibliebe #schreiben #nanowrimo2018 #fantasy #buchreihe

Možná jste postřehli výzvu #nanowrimo2018 , které jsem se pokoušela účastnit. O co že šlo? Misí účastníků výzvy bylo napsat za měsíc listopad 50 000 slov příběhu. To je velké číslo. Číslo, které by mi bohatě stačilo k dopsání mé knihy. Vzhledem k tomu, že jsem osmý den výzvy dosáhla 7 992 slov, prognóza byla více než slibná. Bohužel tím pro mě výzva skončila. Škola mě poslední týdny zaměstnává takovým způsobem, že na psaní ani nic jiného nemám vůbec čas ani energii. * Ačkoli jdou práce pomalu, neztrácím víru :D Poslední kapitolu mám rozplánovanou a promyšlenou, jen si sednout a psát. "Jen" :D * #qotd Co vy a vaše koníčky? Jak si na ně vyčleňujete čas?

I’ve been listening to @bestsellerxp since the start and replay their episodes with John Connolly, Sarah Pinborough and Joe Hill (among others!) when I need a shot of writing motivation. So I’m genuinely delighted to be able to say that their latest episode is out today and the guest is only little old ME! Exciting times. One of the Marks and I chatted about: Disney, the Cork branch of Waterstones, how to write books books, Bruce Willis, backpacking, Norovirus, Second Novel Syndrome, Xanax and having big dreams. (List not exhaustive.) We also coined a new motivational mantra: get your arse in the chair, or AITC for short. 😜 Listen now on iTunes or at BestsellerExperiment.com. #bestsellerexperiment #book #books #bookstagram #podcast #writing #amwriting #writersoninstagram #writersoninsta #writersofinstagram #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2018 #theinspirationproject #inspireme18 #writingtips #writingadvice #writingpodcast #writingpodcasts #theliarsgirl #distresssignals #disney #NASA #selfpublishing #brucewillis #savethecat

Yesterday I was rashing to finish this silk brocade jacket for meeting up with my childhood friends since kindergarten from afar. This is my 2nd trois for the traditional style of cotton jacket in my childhood. The only change in this version was the collar, which was simplely took a dart on each side in the middle, so the collar could fit me better. Silk brocade frayed badly so that I had to cut 1 inch seam allowrance and fold 1/4 inch over using zigzag stitches to prevent further fraying. Fortunately the pattern has only 4 seams and I hand-sewn the seam using long running stitches to mark the seams. I finished the last stitches in the opening at bottom at 2pm sharp, when I rushed to our meet-up. Of course my friends were impresed with such new antique. The closure will be Chinese knot buttons which I have to learn. This is the first reward from my #nanowrimo2018 . 4 more to play with.😜😚😘 . . . . . . #diyjacketpattern #sewjacket #sewcottonjacket #isewmyownclothes #sewsilkbrocadeacket #sewsilkbrocade #slowfashion #sewchunesesryle #sewtraditionalsryle #sewchinesenewyearjacket #chinesenewyeartradition #chinesenewyeargift

What have I been up to you ask?😊 I've been so busy, and it's only going to get busier for the next couple of months with the new 📚releases. 🙀 I'm almost done with the first round of edits for my latest novel. This has added another 15,000 words to my #nanowrimo story. It's off to the editor by the end of the month. 🤞🏽 👀The book cover is cut off because only the members of my VIP Facebook group get to see the early stuff. 😜 My drink of choice as I work?

Do one thing everyday that scares you. - Eleanor Roosevelt . . Heeeey loves and Good morning to you. So today I managed to get myself some good sleep. I've been taking sleep for granted all my life... Don't make the same mistake I did... Haha. . This morning I was going over my writing. For those who don't know, I've been working on a particularly fun project for the past few days, a #fantasywipdecember project. I had my reservations especially after finishing #nanowrimo2018 just last month. But I am anything if not impulsive in what I do. Of late however, I've been working out whether it was such a good idea to go ahead with it... Not the challenge per say. I think inside of me is a closeted workaholic who is just ecstatic right now on a high of working on a project. No... What I was questioning was my story. Let me explain. . The main reason I decided to do a whole revamp of my Instagram account was to be deliberate about the kind of content I put out there. I realized that I was sucked into the whole sex sells strategy and I didn't want to be another person adding an unsuspecting teenager into the whole sex powered world we live in. Sex is good... Otherwise God wouldn't have made it. I just think it has its place and time as well as avenue. Soooooo... With this said... Solution? . I'm taking a break from my WIP to rediscover my inner child. The innocent boy who sees the good in the world and doesn't need to ride on sex and drugs to sell his ideas. It's a pretty hard decision seeing how much energy I've invested into my WIP, but I want what I write to be something I can gladly read to my nieces and nephews at bedtime or gift them for their birthday knowing that it will edify them and not possibly turn them into a closeted sex addict... Haha. So wish me luck as I head back onto the drawing board *nervous laughter* . . #elimwalimu #dimplestothedotcom #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #mentalhealthawareness #kenyanbloggers #poetry #poetryofInstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetryporn #instapoet #instapoetry #poetrycommunity #word #wordporn #words #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writerssociety #creative #creativewriting #smilenation

Cozy Sunday writing session 😌 . I’ve been writing in my notebook and at some points I really wasn’t feeling a scene so I would skip it and write the next one. So now when I’m on my computer I write those missing scenes. . I usually write chronologically so jumping around in the timeline like this is new to me! . Do you write chronologically or do you write scenes as they come to you? . I was watching @katytastic on YouTube and she talks about how for her writing a story is like a puzzle that she works on in pieces as she finds them. I find that fascinating! I feel like that’s how a story forms itself in my mind, but when it comes to actually writing I have to go from beginning to middle to end 🤓 . . . #romancewriter #novelwriting #writersofinstagram #writingsession #nanowrimo2018 #drafting #amwritingromance #amwriting

Here is my reward for *almost* winning #nanowrimo. Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare. It’s a reward because, as many of us do, I have many other books I should be reading instead 🤷🏽‍♀️ I just couldn’t wait. I have to KNOW what happens!!! Just holding this book in my hands makes me feel ecstatic. It’s so pretty! The artwork is amazing, no matter how many times I’ve seen the pieces here on Instagram. And it’s so long the bibliophile in me is on cloud 1,000. I could go on and on (I’ll stop). . . . Also this is my first “real” attempt staging a bookstagram. Tell me how I did lol . . . Also also...I spoiled myself and looked at the back 🤦🏽‍♀️because that’s what I always do for some odd reason. If you haven’t already purchased the book and you’re a little nutcase like me, let me save some regret. DON’T DO THAT! . . . . . . . #amreading #yalit #queenofairanddarkness #thedarkartifices #shadowhunters #youngadultbooks #writingcommunity #writinginspiration #mortalinstruments #julianblackthorn #emmacarstairs #theinfernaldevices #jemcarstairs #writer #author #diversebooks #diversecharacters #nanowrimo2018

Winding down the weekend with some hardcore thinking. How has your weekend been? Are you re-energized for the week to start? . . I have written 44 words this weekend. I'd like to have written more, but since I'm nearing the end of the book, and it's the first of a trilogy, I really need to get my head around the arc of the series before I can wrap up this installment. It isn't easy, shifting my mindset back into planning and big picture from the detail-oriented perspective I've had since November first. It will come, though. . . #declitwrit asks today about editing fuel. I basically starve myself as I write, because I only have a short period in which to shove all my work, so more than anything I get fuel/energy from the others who are reading my work and giving me feedback. . . #igwritersdec today is a writer friend spotlight. I'm going to highlight Sylvia Howard and Tyler Monroe here, both of whom encouraged me and were also writing with me during #nanowrimo2018. . . @author_r.c.martin asks in #merryandwrite if any of my works take place during the holidays. Technically my WIP spans late October 2252 to early January 2253, but I haven't mentioned the holidays. Not yet, anyway. . . . . . #amwriting #amwritingscifi #writerslife #writinglife #authorslife #authorlife #writing #writer #writers #write #writerscommunity #igwriters #writersofig #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #femaleauthors #femaleauthor #writergram #amediting #weekend #friends

Le nanowrimo, premier auquel j’ai participé, s’est achevé il y a maintenant une semaine. Avec mes 12 773 mots, je suis très loin de l’objectif de 50 000. A peine au dessus d’un quart, même. Sachant que je suis en plein editing d’une duologie dont la sortie est prévue pour 2019, et non en pure écriture, je partais forcément avec un désavantage. Mais l’expérience reste très enrichissante. Non seulement, j’ai avancé dans ma duologie, mais j’ai repris un autre manuscrit, que je n’avais pas touché depuis des mois. Sur lequel je garde un œil depuis et que je compte bien terminer, lorsque ma duologie sera sortie. J’ai également apprécié les échanges et le soutien avec d’autres auteurs sur le groupe créé par @tiawolffauteure. Et vous, avez-vous fait le nano cette année, d’autres années ? Qu’avez-vous retiré de l’expérience ? #nano #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2018 #amwriting #writerslife #creativehappylife #novelwriting #nano2018 #artistlife 🎨

Yes, I'm the weirdo, who regularly listens to soundscapes/instrumental/meditation music. 😜🙃😁 My morning routine now consists of listening to such music, eating breakfast, and then getting in some writing for my novel. Last month, I did participate in #Nanowrimo2018 and I knew I would fall short of 50,000 since I started late. Even knowing that, I started the process of outlining and writing. I have wrote ten full chapters with a range of 3-6 scenes per chapter and on my eleventh chapter with eight full chapters to complete the first draft of my novel. Last month's entire experience helped me find a writing routine that works for me. It has helped me utilize writing tools such as Scrivener as a way to brainstorm, organize, and keep on track with writing. Their system worked wonders for me since I work by scenes not by chapters. The chapters are currently divided by folders and each individual scene in the chapter has its own document. I did this in case I realized a certain scene needed to be switched in the chapter AND most importantly, it'll help during the editing and revising process since I can work on that specific scene instead of as a complete document. It's cleaner and less chance of completely screwing up the entire novel if you accidentally got rid of paragraphs that you weren't supposed to. I currently have wrote 49,689 words for my novel. After my writing session today, I will officially have broken the 50,000 word mark. Yes, I could've waited until I did, but I realize it isn't about that. It's not about passing the finishing line days after the deadline. Would it have been great to break 50,000 words in the month of November? Of course! What is more important to me is that not only will I break that 50,000 words, but I will continue on since I have an estimated range of my entire novel being around 71,000-111,000 words. I used to only have the direction and the drive to write a story. I still have the direction and drive, but I also have a map and compass to find my way to the treasure now. In the debate of what type of writer are you -- a plotter or a pantser? I am officially a plotter. #scrivener #writingroutine #whateverworksforyou

New story in progress. I call this giant black notebook my Codex, which is just a fancy name for the place I keep all my notes for a specific setting, so I don't contradict myself later. And the setting? It's called Aeterna, or The Eternal World. It's pure escapism for me, a way of tying together lots of disparate stories I have in various stages of completion. I don't know if any of them will ever be published, but for now I'm enjoying the colossal feat of imagination that goes into building a world from scratch. In fact, this is actually my creative reward, before I dive back into my NaNoWriMo novel later in the month. It's nice to sometimes work on something that has no expectations attached. Aeterna may end up as nothing more than a bunch of notes, maps and half-finished stories - and if it does, that's perfectly okay. #writing #writersofig #writerslife #authorsofinstagram #author #indieauthor #writerscommunity #writingupdate #NaNoWriMo #nanowrimo2018 #writingfantasy #notebookaddict

I know I’m a little late to the party, but I completed #nanowrimo2018 !!! Was it a struggle? Of course it was, and it doesn’t help that my computer decided to break half-way into the process. Nevertheless, this has been the second book I’ve written and I could NOT be prouder! It isn’t perfect and I’ve actually decided to rewrite it, but I’m still very happy with it because it’s made me learn so much about myself, writing, and my characters. To be honest, I can’t wait to do it next year.

The final days of the semester hold a lot that sticks on my mind. It isn't just the stress of finals or the fact that I am poor from the holidays coming up, but the fact that everything is happening and I don't want it to. Or, that is not quite true, I want everything great to happen, sure, but on my terms. But alas, this world is not a utopia, not even in my own head. Loneliness sticks like a horrible disease and so does the dread of the impending future that holds so many questions. So little answers. So many decisions that lead to paths I am afraid to take for fear of turning left when I should have kept going straight. .

Thinking about which pieces of research to include in my book as the work continues on the editing phase of the Thinker vs. Doer book. ⠀⠀ Waves of uncertainty washes over me on a regular basis though. ⠀⠀ I always feel a bit down after completing a big goal. I don’t know why. ⠀⠀ What about you? ⠀⠀ What are you doing now that nanowrimo is over? ⠀⠀ . . . . . . . . . . . ⠀⠀ #writersofinstagram #writerslife #creativewriting #writingday #inspiration #writing #amwriting #justwrite #authorsofinstagram #writersproblems #wordcount #wordcountgoals #writersofig #coffee #coffeeandwriting #latteart #books #booksandcoffee #bookstagram #amreading #readersofinstagram #goals #smashinggoals #nanowrimo2018 #preptober #nanoprep #amplotting #bulletjournal #bujo #contemporarywritersclub @preview.app

This is the 1st draft of my novel, The Times of Clouds and Sun, all printed out. Pleasantly surprised so far. Got a ways to go with it, but I think it's not so bad for 29 days of effort. #nanowrimo #Nanowrimo2018

I had a rough and stuffed week, but now it's finally Friday! Now, I can finally lay down in bed, watch series and read books without any regret, because I should have done something for university instead. I can take a nap or write at my #nanowrimo2018 project. I can drink tea and do nothing at all. I hope, you all have a wonderful Friday night! Remember that you are all wonderful and worth it! That you're okay just as you are! Stick together and stay strong! 💕💪🏼 . . . #luv #nanowrimo #2k18 #tough #fridaynight #weekend #tea #winter #cold #redhead #reading #candle #blogger #bloggerlife #influencer #blog #influencerstyle #influencerlife #bloggergirl #nature #naturelovers #instagood #goodvibes #photography #sky #trees #potterhead #metalhead #city
