I swear, every time I edit, the story continues to develop. Sometimes, I overcomplicate things. This time, it means I'm adding a lot of the secondary story. I don't think that's bad, as it's a story that's critical to the plot, but I'll probably have to cut some of these new words. I hate cutting words because it means I wasted time writing them. (But that's how I write. I'm not a sparse first drafter, I'm a verbose first drafter.) What are you? Do you write a thin first draft and then fatten it up? Or do you write a fat first draft and then take the knife to it? #amwriting #amediting #writerslife
Lyrical Theory #4 Acting on my Dreams #realitydreams How long have you been waiting? What’s stopping you? You never hesitated to dream, then why do you hesitate to make them happen? Why does execution hinder your process of turning dreams into reality? Great man Benjamin Franklin’s words: Never leave till tomorrow which you can do today. Be a doer, not just a dreamer because your dreams won’t work until you do. Share with @sublime_scheme your thoughts on the above theory using #reality dream in the comments below. #realitydream #sublime_scheme #lyrical_theory #microfiction #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #amwriting #nanowrimo #amediting #ilovewriting #authorlife #writerscorner #writerscommunity

@infinityworld201 ‘s submission to this week’s challenge: Write something inspired by the gray balloon photo.| Submit your writing via DM or tag us in your work to be featured. | Challenge ends Aug. 19.
My name is Elizabeth Ann, and I’m 37 years old. I love music, and my passion is writing. To me, these two go hand in hand, most likely because poetry is my first love when it comes to writing. I was born in 1980 when times were simpler, almost more interactive because without technology, we were forced to actually build relationships face to face. Writing notes and folding them origami style was my generation’s way of texting, and if you were lucky, the boy you liked gave you his pager number. I still remember my first ever phone number and address, and for years, my means of transportation was my bicycle. My first ever job was a paper route which I split with my little sister, and we’d do that every single day after school, rain or shine. I was taught how to save my money for things I wanted, and my dad taught me to actually go outside every once in a while because I’d hole myself in my room for hours reading & writing. I always had huge dreams which sometimes were made fun of, but that never stopped me because I didn’t care, they would happen for me....and they did....until they didn’t. You see, somewhere along the way, I lost who I really was inside, and I allowed life to dictate to me who I was and what I should be doing. Today, I’ve finally found Elizabeth Ann all over again, and she seems pretty familiar to me even though it’s been a while. Who are you? Have you given up your dream & passion to be published? If so, let me know, and let’s start a conversation in the comments below🦋

Sometimes writing & editing is like this #dahlia . Round and round. Peeling back the layers. Waiting for the story to be completely bloomed and ready for the world to see. Sometimes, the story hangs in limbo at its barest and most vulnerable stage. #amediting #amwriting

Time to edit!! So.. yesterday when I ordered to have this printed out at UPS (fun fact: ordering this was WAY cheaper than if I did it at home) I thought little of it. "Yes, I am ordering a printout of 129 pages. Yeah, it's just documents. Thank you." I get there to pick it up... There were two men behind the counter. One was helping a customer and the other had his back to the counter and he was staring down at something on the table in front of him. Me: o_o.. *cough* excuse me.. yes, hi. I came to pick up a print? Table staring man: *turns* oh! Hi! Do you mean this one I was just staring at? Me: uhh.. Him: 129 pages? Me: Yes! Him: Yeah, I was lookin' at it.. *places stack on counter and points at first paragraph* and I was wondering what am I looking at? So... I wrote the first paragraph of my novel TWO YEARS ago.. mind you.. But in that moment I instantly remembered: it starts off with a woman, standing in the middle of the street, staring at and pondering over mangled road kill. Me: *remembering* oh! *nervous giggles* Yeah, this is just a book I wrote... Him: Oh? Me: ...it's fiction. Him: Fair enough. Me: ... Him: ... Me: *clears throat, shuffles papers* well.. thank you! Have a good one! *dashes away* Fun times... anyway! Time to rip this baby to shreds. *deep breath* Pray for me. #amwriting #amediting #writersofinstagram #novel #writing #editing #themachetetwins

Then and now, the beautifully restored Lutheran church in Rujiena Latvia. The last photo shows the exterior of the church as I saw it through the rain in early spring 2016, without a steeple. Another of the photos shows a model of the steeple that will be built to replicate the original which was destroyed by fire many years ago. #rujiena #latvia 🇱🇻 #latvia #northernlatvia #historicalnovel #historicalplace #historicchurch #amediting #writer #writergirl #amwriting #latvianhistory #beautifulchurch #writerlife #writerslife #latvianstory #latvianhistory #rūjiena

I'd walk through fire for you my friend. Well, not fire because that's dangerous. But a super humid room... well not too humid, because you know... my hair. Ok! Let’s keep it 💯 As long as it doesn’t pertain to me burning or my hair getting ruined, I’ll always have your back.... 😂🤭😍💋💋 P.S Yes I show off my multitasking skills by photographing sunsets with a boba in hand. 🤷🏻‍♀️💃🏻
Even today, the superlative form of rebellion is, BEING YOURSELF !! Being that black sheep with that rare individuality that people simply fail to understand how straight forward it is !! To have that endless courage to follow the inner compass of your conscience !! What does the hypocrisy of being a white sheep give you ?? To go with the flow in other words is defined as lack of valour !! Greatness comes not by staying in calm waters rather by defining ORIGINALITY as your favourite colour !! Be okay with being the HIPPIE of your clan !! If your mind jumps from one extreme to another in just 5 seconds, leaving no detail unnoticed while others wonder what just happened, acknowledge that your stubborn, free spirit is trying to mark you as AN ORIGINAL !! Let BOHEMIAN be your style !! It's okay to have a different perspective from others !! At least give "BEING YOU" a try😉 ~Ana🎈 PS: current read NEW PEOPLE by DANZY SENNA.. #free #spirit #courage #different #brave #blue #followyourheart #passionate #photography #heels #girls #style #classic #reader #writer #wanderer #amediting #beoriginal #instadaily #originality #beyou #writersofinstagram #books #stylish #tweegram #enjoy #freedom #writerscorner #amwriting #bibliophile
Some days, she was a mystery A part of her.. unsolved ! Storms clashed through her mind Battles in her battered soul.. unresolved ! Some days, she seemed like history One-sided and falsely apprehended ! That dazzling smile, those sparkling eyes Features that were all exquisitely blended ! Some thing about her persona was glittery Window to her soul, those eyes bearing dreams ! The rough and tough, she buried inside While letting her joy and happiness scream ! Lost she was and then also found By the doubts she kept under the ground ! She was pure, indifferent to sin A sacred heart, a face with a grin ! She remained a mystery Unwritten, unread and untold ! She became history That was both Beautiful and Bold ! ~Ana🎈 #writersofinstagram #amwriting #amediting #ilovewriting #authorlife #writerscorner #spilledink #bookwormforlife #writersofig #booklovers #happy #booknerdigans #bookish #bibliophile #creativewriting #thingsifeel #thingsiwrite #instagood #writer #instapoet #instapoem #instadaily #bookclub #thinking #thoughts #mysterious #sayings #poet #poetry #smile
Your happiness is the greatest form of living when all the devil does is try to drag you down. Celebrate the life you were given with the ones that miss you in your absence and appreciate you when you’re present, elevate you in your moments and celebrate your successes. . . . #novels #yalit #amwritingromance #kindleromance #amediting #amquerying #writingprompt #writingsprint #writingting #writershelpingwriters #whereiwrite #books #igauthor #authorsofinstagram #authorsofig #travelblogger #travelblog #travelgram #travelphoto #travelbloggerlife #wanderlust #solotraveler #traveldiaries2018 #adventure #instatravel #cityscape #travelblogging #dametraveler
Among the various shades of grey Oblivious of glorious moments are they ! In the galaxies above, blue greens of bay And the space between them is where I stay ! Epoch, era, century, decennium Moment, nanosecond or triennium ! Fail you will, if tried to grab If seemingly you do, don't go on and brag ! Neither in the gone, to come nor any other form Cherish me now and so will you arrive home ! Love me now while you still can Denying me gets you nowhere, Oh Man ! Impossible is to measure the depths of me Deceiving is to think you've enough of me ! Memories are the forms in which I am bent Still I give you a precious gift; THE PRESENT ! Rough is the stillness where a moment ends and begins a new Your faith is being tested there when you are so blue ! When you see me gloomy, just pass me by Don't try to unwind me, I know how to fly ! Whether you win or lose, see dark or lights Fact is only, it's me who decides !~Ana🎈 #poetry #photography #author #writer #library #story #kindle #creativewriting #bookish #instagood #thingsiwrite #instadaily #books #writersofinstagram #literature #amwriting #amediting #ilovewriting #authorlife #writerscorner #alone #bookworms #bookwormforlife #booklover #booklovers #books #booknerdigans #bibliophile #thingsifeel #tweegram #thoughts
I didn’t dream of being the girl to travel the world, I started booking flights. I didn’t dream of exploring different cultures, eating exotic foods and learning different dances, I started writing memoirs of my experiences. I didn’t dream of falling in love, I fulfilled the value of giving. I didn’t wait for things to be handed to me, I went out into the world and got it myself. I didn’t learn to fake it, instead I just made it I didn’t learn the value of revenge, I learned instead the value of my presence. I didn’t look over at my neighbors garden instead I watered my own. I didn’t drink to erase, i remembered to never forget. I don’t slow down for no one cause time waits for no man . . . #novels #yalit #amwritingromance #kindleromance #amediting #amquerying #writingprompt #writingsprint #writingting #writershelpingwriters #whereiwrite #books #igauthor #authorsofinstagram #authorsofig #travelblogger #travelblog #travelgram #travelphoto #travelbloggerlife #wanderlust #solotraveler #traveldiaries2018 #adventure #instatravel #cityscape #travelblogging #dametraveler
A lover asked his beloved, Do you love yourself more than you love me? The beloved replied, I have died to myself and I live for you. I’ve disappeared from myself and my attributes. I am present only for you. I have forgotten all my learning, but from knowing you I have become a scholar. I have lost all my strength, but from your power I am able. If I love myself I love you. If I love you I love myself. - Rumi
Books just have a way of transporting you into the story that TV and movies just can't mimic. . Don't get me wrong. There are a lot of movies out there that are absolutely amazing but when you read, you become part of the story and not just an observer. I think this is why books are better! . 🎬📺 VS 📚🖋 . . #WritemindedKJ #writing #writer #write #aspiringwriter #amwriting #amediting #writerscorner #writtenword #writingcommunity #creativity #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writingtips #writingadvice #quotes #quotestoliveby #quoteoftheday #writingquotes #inspiration #writinginspiration #motivation #reader #read #writenow #authorquotes #bookquotes #books #tv
One of the softer sides of She Danced in the Night... Though I have to admit, I am finding myself struggling to write the softer moments. Anyone else struggle with that during certain phases of life and writing??
