Motherhood as rich territory ⁣⁣ Day 42/100⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It was Mother's Day yesterday. I didn't write yesterday (too busy being a mother to a toddler and hosting my family and my own mother for brunch), but the intersection of motherhood and writing is one that I love exploring. Sometimes it seems too overwhelming of a topic because of how complex it is. I once heard @johnmayer (who by the way, my husband shared is baaaaack with a new song) say that he enjoys challenging himself to take big, lofty ideas like "life" and write a little song about it. I like the idea of challenging myself to do so, but the practice and execution of it is another thing entirely. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ In last Friday's Memoirama course during our Q & A, @mroachsmith reassured me that that indeed "Motherhood is a rich territory" to explore for writing. I'm over 2 years into this motherhood journey, and I already feel like I have enough material to keep writing forever. And that's a good thing.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I hope you all enjoyed the weekend and celebrated all mothers and mother-figures in your lives. I love this poem that @cleowade wrote in honor of mothers and the different forms they take. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #the100dayproject #paulinescreativejourney ⁣⁣⁣⁣ #paulinewritesfor100days #stillwriting #writersofinstagram #writersofcolor #writermom #momswhowrite

Hello my lovelies 🧚🏻‍♀️ I hope you had a wonderful mothers day. Maybe you can share with me one of the best memories you have with your mum? 🌸 ______________ I could be inhabitated by a sadness much larger than life, But on this day I chose to love that spirit you left behind. A mothers care left in veins and memories never lost. Once your presence left my sight I searched for you in words. Stronger than a warrior you lifted our spirits high. Softer than a whisper you hugged our souls in dark. Devoted to your mission to raise a human brighter than a sun. Yet you never ceased to encourage the acceptance of those dark clouds in life. In that honor we try to share as much love as we can, spreading kindness that’s contagious as your laughter once was. We will dance through the troubles and create our best life with so much struggle. We will give your story a better ending, cause your life is transcending this earthly way of living. Giving mother your sacriface will never be denied and will always live in our hearts. - @sunny_.days ________________ I know I am late just one day from the official mothers day, but happy life to all of you mum warriors who are doing the most important job there is. I congratulate you on that heavy battle that you balance with softness and love. To all the mothers that are no longer with us, the ones we never had a chance to meet, and to those who are still by our sides. 💕 _________________ #bookstagram #mothersday #bookworm #girlpower #aesthetics #writer #igread #igbooks #bookphotography #photography #writersofinstagram #words #bookblogger #vsco

Itne ghane badal ke peeche kitna tanha hoga vo chand. Chup kr apni tanhai chupa leta hai vo chand. Log chal padhte hai har raat apni kahani lekar uski oor Kitna tanha hoga vo chand phir bhi logon ki kahani sunkar unhe apni roshni se hosla deta hai vo chand. Log roo padhte hai uske samne apni dard bhari kahani sunakar, itna tanha rehkr bhi jo logoon ko roshni deta hai vo hota hai chand. Kash log bhi us chand jaise hote jo tanha rehkr bhi dosro ko roshni dete. Bada Kamaal ka hai vo chand, Itne ghane badal ke peeche kitna tanha hoga vo chand. ~sumaiya . . . #poetry #poems #poeticsphere #poemsporn #poemsofinstagram #words #wordsporn #wordsmith #feelings #instapoems #instapoemssociety #heart #lovequotes #writings #writersofinstagram

”You play nice tonight." That's what I said to her as we walked into the restaurant. Hope Winters never failed me. She was anything and everything I needed her to be. A dangerous woman. Perfect. Effective. Mine. The deal should have been simple - mutually beneficial to both parties: Cane and Vico. An alliance. But then blood, bullets, and death began surrounding me, opening cage doors I'd closed down. That doesn't happen in my city, not unless I order it. Someone's to blame. And no one lies to me and survives. Not even Hope. ~ "Maybe you're worth it." Words I've longed to hear. After all this time, I was almost there. My perfectly crafted mission was nearly done. Years of scheming and seducing and it was all within my grasp. But I allowed myself to be distracted by him and didn't see the threat until it was too late. Falling in love wasn't part of the plan. Hell, love was a foreign concept to me, but it changed everything, and now I'm in too deep with a man more dangerous than anyone I've met. Benjamin Vico asked me for two things, and instead, I brought vengeance to his door. If there is one thing he'll never accept, it's treachery and deceit. And I've committed both. Revenge. Blame. Dark. Erotic. Romance.

When ur heart felt tired and tears shed u apart, u always know there is she who is always going to worry in your worries, cry in ur pain, gets stiffen in ur erroneous decisions. You were the happiest in her womb and will always get best nap in her lap. There is no miracle that that has made her this way. Sacrifice, adaptation, affliction for u made her the superwoman of ur life. Definitely one day is not what we owe her and definitely none can repay her love. .

I confide in my love of you I emerge within the dream of you I collapse into the vacuum of you I am in trance, hypnotic to the drone of you - I see you in the rosewater, I pour you over clouds you are the sunset of my heart's valley flying on bird song to the nadir of love's pulse - I am caught under the wake of you I am aroused by the crescendo of you I am restless to the knowing of you l am stoned on sweet grass of you an eternity of moment towards you with you as simply as the rain dissolves into nothing we are nothing more than our most tender of desires actualized, light into warmth 花 #poetry #originalpoetry #love #cosmic #devotion #spirituality #selfportrait #rosewater #cosmiclove #instapoetry #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #sacred

‘too much’ • something i wrote a couple weeks ago. you ever feel like you’re giving someone too much of yourself? its not that they don’t deserve it or you don’t want them to have it, but more that you feel like you’re overwhelming them, scaring them off? it’s almost as if every little personal thing you tell someone, a little piece of you goes with it. personally, i think self-disclosure is the most important part of a relationship and without it being present to both parties things can start to feel a tad one sided. i’ve been trying to work on keeping things to myself and not letting it all out when i’m in a shitty mood, so i write those feelings down instead, and this amateur poetry is the result lmao. #poetry #relationships #writersofinstagram

It'll be a little too late, by the time you realise, that you've lost your first love. It'll come to your notice, in messages, replied to, hours later. In no initiatives, from her end. It'll feel like, she's giving you space, But, what you'll miss out on, Is that she's packing her stuff, And leaving your heart, back at your doorstep. And taking hers back, from your hands. You were holding on it too tight, You see. You'll realise, A little too late, The difference between making love, And fucking someone. When she lies dead under you, Not caring for your pleasure, Selfish for hers, Though, You'll know what, It's like to fuck. You'll miss, When she isn't there, To put a wet cloth against, Your burning head. You'll miss, The little pecks, She planted and giggled When you looked surprised. You'll hate parks, When it's without her, Because she was such an excited kid, Even if it was just for a balloon. You'll know then, Making love, Went beyond your body, It touched your soul. You'll down bottles, Of beer, To erase her memory from your soul, Only to remember, How her lips tasted, A couple of bottles, As she kissed you drunk. It'll take a while for you to realise, The difference between, Making love, And fucking. But, frankly dear, It'll be a little too late, By then. #spokenword #spilledink #musings #poetrycommunity #writingcommunity #poetry #love #heartbreak #writersofinstagram #tale #poetryporn #writingforsoul #words #feelings #poetsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #followforfollow #followforlike #likeforlike #likesforlikes #followbackinstantly

Writing is a addiction. You are father of hundreds of characters, creator of your own words. You engineer lyrics others sing, you write things, others relate. But the real meaning of pen, poet and jotter are too complex. Steps after steps, stanzas after stanzas the search for "yagvindre" continues and deepens.

It's Monday again! And this Monday is all about Mothers!🌻 . In honor of Mother's Day yesterday, I wanted to talk about some more special mothers - not just the awesome lady in the picture. And yes, that is me and Momma K when I was just a cute, light-haired beach baby😎🏖 . I'm talking about my BOOK mommies! Let's see, there's Jessica Lockwood from PUSH (coming soon😉). Total sweetheart, supportive for days, basically the lifeline of the family. Not to mention straight up BEAUTIFUL😍 . Then we've got Veronica Walton, Tessa's mom. She shows up in Never Let Me Go and sort of stirs things up a bit. But she means well. And Abigail James, Andrew's mom, makes appearances in NLMG and Always Yours, too. She's a difficult woman, to say the least. She and Andrew's relationship was always strained so when Tessa finally meets her it's quite dramatic😳 . Oh, and who could forget Vivian James, Andrew's [ex] wife and the mother of his children (I'm trying SO hard not to let spoilers loose right now😣😫 lol) She's also a pot-stirrer... In all 3 books. She just can't help herself. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . In Always Yours, we also meet Andrew's sister-in-law, Charlotte, who is married to Andrew's brother, Paul. She's a darling! I can't wait for you guys to meet her, Paul, and the twins. Yes, I said twins.... OMG I need you guys to read these books! HURRY up and get on it! . 💙🧡💜Link in bio💜🧡💙 Go now! Order them or add to your KU library! . OR enter the giveaway in my previous post! You could win TWO BOOKS amongst tons of other awesome stuff! 💝💋💖

🎶 W R I T I N G P L A Y L I S T S 🎵 . . Question: what do you listen to when you write? . . 👋🏻 Hey guys! How’s your Monday? It was the first real day back to work for me after my vacation (since I got sick just when I got home). I’ve had a really inspiring and productive day. . . 🎵 I listen to a lot of music when I write. It used to be a huge source for inspiration - especially when I wrote short stories. However, when I worked on Brush Strokes it eventually also became a distraction. I got caught up in the lyrics instead of focusing on my writing. . . . ✨ I then discovered Spotify’s mood setting. I can highly recommend this feature for other things than writing as well. Anyway, I now only listen to the Focus playlists on Spotify when I write. They’re instrumental and (placebo or not) I can write for hours without being distracted! . . 🌻 Don’t have Spotify? I’ve heard that writing to video game music is also super effective and I’m sure you can find a lot of playlists with that on YouTube. They work, because they’re designed to make you forget about time passing when you play (so you play for longer) and that apparently also works for when you need to concentrate on writing. Who knew? 🤷🏼‍♀️ . . . 👋🏻 Have a good day or evening guys (depending on where you are)! I’m going to make some dinner and then dive into this pretty awesome story idea that overtook me a week ago, and hasn’t left me since. 💕

Dignity is as essential to human life as water, food, and oxygen. The stubborn retention of it, even in the face of extreme physical hardship, can hold a man's soul in his body long past the point at which the body should have surrendered it . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #poet #poem #poetryofig #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #poems #instapoet #poetryofinstagram #spilledink #authorsofinstagram #linguistics #wordswithkings #anxiety #poetry #art #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #calligraphy #love #l4l #poetryisnotdead #photography #rupikaur #rmdrake #inspirationalquotes #motivationalquotes #bymepoetry #writinginspiration #author #fallenfort

My mother, a deep tumultuous ocean... My father, a dark thundering cloud... My birth was a thunderstorm filled with lightening repeatdly striking the earth... , My first breath shattered diamonds breaking all the barriers of sound My tiny fingers cracked stones as my palms grasped the ground, My new eyes opened bending all the spectrums of light waiting to be found... , Swaddled in a crater like a crib of protection, Volcanoes roared in eruptions, Tornados howled in destruction... , There were quakes across all the lands down to the core of the earth, As natural disasters rejoiced all at once celebrating this day, The day of my birth... , May Thirteenth By Mikha'il Wolf ©wolfspoetry ☆ ☆ ☆ #wolfspoetry #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetrynyc #poet #poetsofinstagram   #instapoet #instapoetry #instapoem #instawriter #igpoet #igwriters #jamaicanwriters #jamaicanmen #writersofinstagram #poetrysociety #writingcommunity #writer #art #songwriter #blog #writerscommunity #blackpoets #blackwriters #thoughtoftheday #potd #writer #poem #birthday #shortstory #fridaythe13th

When I became a parent, I began a life-changing journey into uncharted territory. Caring for a newborn was like walking into a strange house blindfolded. There were no blueprints to consult, no floor plan to get my bearings. Everywhere I turned, there were missing stairs and secret spaces that led to unexpected emotions and tears. With my history of psychological and physical health issues, the foundation of the structure felt shaky, the ground uneven. I'm honoured to share my latest essay, "The Strange House of Motherhood," which is part of an amazing new anthology called "A Mother Knows,” a beautiful partnership between @hylandshealth and @mamalode. Please check it out if you have a moment, and let me know if you can relate.

I was so afraid of exposing myself and writing about my Sobriety. For the first 4 months I didn't tell anyone other than my hubby and close friends. My disease wanted me to live in shame and regret, it wanted me dead. My disease was writing a story that I didn't like. I am forever grateful that I took God's hand and asked him to help me write a different story. . . I am honored to be a part of the recovery community. Mother's Day has always been a difficult day for me. It stirs up emotions that I don't enjoy. I didn't have to be alone yesterday. I spent the day with amazing friends. This is the story and legacy that I want to leave. Happy Monday!

The origin of this new skin rose from desolation in a barren wasteland From where any flesh is loose for scavenging by animals who survive on the carnage they exile here I am one of the few seeds that grow from death And you don’t get to miss me these days Not when you were the one who buried me alive.
