I had a fantastic writing day today, with a complete synopsis/narrative outline composed right here at the library for my new project that I’ve been brainstorming and mulling over for the last couple of weeks. I’m starting to get to know this new cast of characters and I’m really excited. 💗 ✨ • • • • • #bookstagram #amwriting #amwritingya #bookish #writer #librarylove
✖ EDITING TIME ✖ After spending a few hours editing my book, I decided to take a break and pop by the little coffee shop down the road. 💜 • With my coffee handy, I'm ready to knock out a few more chapters. 🤓 • And later, I'm getting myself organized for my favourite yearly event of movies, books, comics and celebrities! ComicCon fans, you know what I'm talking about. 😉 Watch this space 'cause soon, you'll be seeing me...all of me. 💜 ___________🌙_____________ #editingprocess #editingtime #amwritingya #loveozya #coffeestain #coffeelovers #whatsawriterwithouthercoffee

Evening Loves! ✨🌻🍁🌻✨ • Just a lovely calming? Soothing? 😅🙃 Just a little post to express my love of reading because I don’t have an answer to the #writetogether prompt tonight! • What’s your favorite type of fiction to read and write? Do you follow or know of any insta profiles that are specific to the type you love? Who are they?? ✨💜🔮💜✨ • Why, you might ask, do I not have an answer to today’s prompt? Well, because I don’t have any abandoned manuscripts I wish I could go back to! I like to work on one thing at a time really, I get so immersed 🙃 But even the “one” I do have, is the story that became #thenavarrechronicles ! ✨🍁✨ • It’s actually supposed to become fall here in Ohio now, (after being 90 million degrees today 😭) tomorrow, and my fall-loving Wiccan self could not be more excited! Fall is my favorite time of year! ✨🍁🔮🍁✨
I made myself a floor-level writing desk because I LOVE sitting on the floor. I HATE chairs! Especially when I’m writing. . . But guess who stole my floor pouf? 🐈😂 . #amwriting #amwritingya #catsofinstagram
Toddlers are my mommy kryptonite. They’re so cute that I forget how awful pregnancy and newborns are and want another one. Can you blame me??

There is magic system on this world. Many creatures are born with it, while others need to study it. As for the 7 heroes, each of them has the power of an element that they need to master it, they need to have a strong mindset and concentration. Some master it faster than others. #fantasybookseries #fantasynovels #japanfolklore #nancygallegos #mysteryinbonsaigardens #magic #magicsystem #bookstagram #upcomingbooks #fantasywriter #fantasywriters #writerssupportingwriters #authorssupportingauthors #fantasyworld #fantasybooks #indiebooks #indiebook #indiewriters #indiewritersofinstagram #indieauthor #amwritingfantasy #amwritingfiction #amwritingya #amwritingmystery #fantasy #yokai #fantasycreature #writingwip #amwriter #authorsofinstagram
San Pedro's namesake Saint Peter is always known because he's carrying the key, the key to the kingdom of God.

What? The rain followed me home from Washington to Midland? I miss the coastal areas of my vacation, the sand under my feet, and the sound of the surf. I am feeling creative and inspired. Does vacation leave you inspired or drained?

Writing music for today. Actually its been my entire writing journey. My novel has 2 Mc's and 2 pov(points of view). There is dark times, epic battles, confusing love, and a girl experiencing powers while still trying to maintain her 'average' life. Im getting closer to sharing it. I'm nervous but I have to be brave. #amwritingfantasy #amwritingya #ya #yafantasywriter #music #musicinspiration #writing #amediting
So after talking to my editor/writing coach I decided that I do have to scrap my first draft and start over. And I spent some time this morning brainstorming and thinking about the new story and you know what? I’m super excited! ⠀⠀ I feel so happy that I’ve made this decision and will be focusing on Etta’s sorry and journey that I almost can’t wait to get started and isn’t that the whole point? To be excited and passionate about our work and our stories? ⠀⠀ What are you guys passionate about today? . . . . . #butfirstcoffee #coffeeinthemorning #createyourhappy #dreamersandoers #creativehappylife #iloveofficesupplies #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #writinglife #amwriting #writersofig #writerscorner #deepthoughts #coffeegram #ihavethisthingwithcolor #primarycolors #livecolorfully #courage #inquiringmindswanttoknow #goalsandachievements #amwritingya #currentwip #Goals #drinkcoffeewriteabook #creativepreneur #coffeebreak #onmydesk #question #tgif #friyay @preview.app
The end is near! Hand in is just days away, and I'm completing my work as we speak! Edits have been done, read-throughs are finished - even my printer did a very decent job of doing what I wanted it to do.

✨Day 21 of #fantasywipseptember —Is there magic? How does it work? • There is an abundance of magic throughout my WIP, and there is only one species who lacks the standard form of magic: banals/humans. - Monsters are blessed with magic gifts that help them prey on the weak. - Creatures are given abilities normal animals do not possess. Wolves that can speak, who’s anatomy cannot explain where the frills that allow them to talk go when they aren’t in use. - An alchemei is a sprite with healing magic, who uses their magic alongside herbs and crystals to crafts tonics and remedies to help others. - “Vetus” is the magic of the gods, and was only supposed to be used by their chosen. Five bloodlines only. Their secrets were not meant to be shared with anyone outside their house. - And sprite, who can control one of the five elementals (fire, wind, ice, earth and air), and also possess one to two gifts. But, in order to control their magic, a sprite must be wearing their “syphin”. The white crystal is worn as a necklace and stabilises their magic so each sprite can control it. The gods gifted them with magic, but their bodies were not built for it, and so they need these crystals to survive. Without them, it takes seven to fourteen days for their magic to slowly kill him. Syphins must be replaced monthly or else they will erupt, which can strip a sprite of their magic and sometimes kill them if a new syphin is not given. ✨🔮✨ • Is a fantasy book really a fantasy book if there is no magic? 🙊 #fantasywipseptember #amwritingya #aussiewriters #wip #amwritingfantasy #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #kzwstb #raelythia
✨Day 20 of #fantasywipseptember asks: What makes Raelythia unique?✨ Well, the Great River Ring which is the source of every river on Raelythia runs in a perfect circle through the land. There is only one direction and a constant current through Mirasea guides more water into the purification temple, turning the water from salt to fresh and back through the loop. There is only two of a hundred rivers that remain salt water: - One of them is natural, it’s path carves through the Diamond League before the temple. Legend states it is where the pixies live. - The second is artificial. Elric Xarotheon, Chief of Titanium, had a spill over dam built so the river which filled Ekal Lake beyond Xarocity’s walls could remain full, but the salt he pours into it won’t contaminate the entire River Ring. 🌊 • What makes your worlds unique? #kzwstb #amwritingfantasy #amwritingya #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #worldbuilding #wip #creativewriting #fantasywipseptember #fantasymap #raelythia
✨Good Evening to all!✨ It’s been a busy week at work for me, so much so that I literally got home from a loooong day of landscaping, ate dinner and then collapsed into my bed. For three days straight. There was lots and lots of sugar ingested—sorry, not sorry, body 🙊 • Backdating to Day 18 of #fantasywipseptember —Author Inspiration 💖 • ***small break to prep the broken record*** • “To the people who look to the stars and wish.” “To the stars who listen and the dreams that are answered.” @THEREALSJMAAS I was 12/13 when I “wrote” my first story. It was more like a terrible movie script. I don’t remember what exactly inspired me to start writing, I think it was my dreams. 9/10 I have vivid dreams, some of them I remember snippets, others I can still remember today even after years, and some that I’ve written down so I’ll never forget. But the one who inspires me to continue writing, who I hope to one day meet and thank for simply sharing her gift with the rest of us, and for her books that challenge me not only as a writer but a reader too. She is the pillar of which I set my standards to, for myself mostly, but other books too. 😍✨ • ***removing broken record*** Stay tuned for Days 19-21 🙈🙊💖 • #amwritingya #writersofinstagram #favouriteauthor #queenmaas #survivorofmaasdestruction
Morning Booklings! ✨☕️📚☕️✨ • So I realized last night (too late, clearly) that I skipped a #fantasywipseptember prompt! (Sighs... 🤦🏻‍♀️) But don’t you worry!

And the white fox is said to defend from the stars, a companion to the Goddess in life and death according to the ancient Navarre lore ✨✨✨

Do you do this in your writing? • I feel like this is why I’m an underwriter. I leave out descriptions or things I would skim over if I’m in a rush or bored. Hopefully that makes my pacing better & my story fuller. But sometimes I worry I leave too much out & it’s not immersive enough. Thank goodness for betas! • Have you found that you leave too much out? Or too much in? Are you an over or underwriter? Which do you think is easier or do they both have their own struggles? • • • • #amwriting #amwritingYA #WIP #aspiringAuthor #writingproblems #YouKnowYoureAWriterWhen #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram #writerslife #underwriter #overwriter #firstdraft #writingquote #writingtip

Writing a book is like climbing a mountain. It takes heart, courage, faith, and perseverance to make it to the peak. Sometimes, we get so bogged down in the process that we forget why we're climbing and giving all this effort. We walk, with our heads down and we stare at our feet, not even paying attention to how much progress we've made. Today, I urge you to get your chin up and to look at how much progress you've made. With that, you're given a choice. Will you continue to slog your way up? Or will you charge the mountain? • • • #authorlife #authorlove #writerlifestyle #selfmade #authorsofinsta #writersofig #bookpages #bookpage #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amwritingya #writingtip #adviceoftheday

💪🏻 K I N D I S T O U G H 💪🏻 @meganwritenow posted today about how kindness takes its own kind of strength. She spoke right to one of my characters. It’s a special kind of brave to wake up every day, everything against you, and still have the courage to be kind, not bitter.

Good Morning Booklings! ✨🌻📚🌻✨ • #fantasywipseptember QOTD: is there magic in your world? How does it work? • Magic you say? Of course there’s magic in Navarre. It dwells within all Fae and Witches. It’s typically elemental stuff, but there really is no limit to the type of magic, those are just the most common. Mortal healers have magic as well, but that’s a history lesson in itself. 😜 Magic swells within the wielder. It’s tethered to their soul, like a well of power the magic slumbering until the weirder calls it into existence. One must train to perfect the art of calling the magic and work to strengthen the connection to prevent a burnout, hence why Quinn meditates so much. A burnout would kill the weirder. And trying to take the magic from a weirder would either kill them from the excruciating pain of the process, or leave them an empty, emotionless shell. Watch out, Aeron is in the corner rubbing his hands together with an evil grin on his face. • Magic is all around us. It’s whispers on the wind, the humming through the trees or the rain, the way the flowers smile after a thunderstorm as if they’re sheltering the tiny iridescent wings of faeries. It’s the way a book makes us feel as we fly through the pages like nothing else matters. It’s timeless, ageless, and can be whatever you want it to be.✨💜🔮💜✨
No, I am NOT rewriting the opening chapter again. Okay, I might be. But it’s for the good of the novel. #5amwritersclub #amwritingya
Character building tips by @miss_dewolf Repost : "Maybe a little after the fact, but I created my character logbook so I can track all my characters' traits and choices. I used to have this information in my head, but with 35 different characters it was becoming a tad overwhelming, especially since I'm thinking about writing a sequel. My biggest tip for fellow authors is to write down your characters' values and the goals that follow. When a character has conflicting values they become unpredictable and more interesting to the story... PS. Note how I have a separate field for husband/wife and another one for secret crushes... 😇" . . . . . . . . . . #writingtips #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amwritingfiction #amwritingya #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writer #author #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #writersofig #writerslife #writingabook #yafantasy #yafiction #yawriter #bookseries #amediting #debutnovel #howtowrite #howtowriteabook #writetheword #writetolive #writingsociety #writingprompts #writingadvice #writingchallenge #writingworkshop
Would your MC approve of the genre you wrote them in? Love this question!! Think it’s so interesting. My answer to this in No! Christina would not.

Meet Skylar Crimson. Character from the young adult novel "A chance for porcelain hearts" by Nancy Gallegos. Skylar is a rocker, that loves all kinds of metal and rock music, even if she doesn't understand the lyrics of songs that are in German or Finnish. She is a law student and lives in Pennsylvania. Her birthday is May 12. She is the excentric of the group and the loudest. She loves to bother Hikaru.

“How about a run?” She snorted. “I’ve never run a day in my life.” That rare mischievous look flickered in his eyes. “Exactly. It will build endurance.” He started toward the outskirts of town. “Come on, your Highness. I won’t tell the others if you’re sick afterwards.” Joseline sent him a narrowed look. “I won’t be sick.” Quinn waved a hand at her, not bothering to turn back as he said, “No? Prove it.” ✨✨✨ Evening Darlings! ✨💜🔮💜✨ • Today’s #writetogether prompt asks for an excerpt. Recently I’ve given a bunch of intense and serious ones. So I figured this little exchange would be a nice, cute change. They may ignore their feelings, but they can be pretty adorable too. 🙃 Also once again the Pintrest gods have graced me with a picture. This time of what I imagine Joseline looks like when she gets focused on training and zoned out. 🤩🤩🤩
Coming up with a title for my novel is the hardest thing ever. I know it’s going to be a series of at least 3 books, so I want the titles to really go together (also know the premise of each book already so that helps!) Hopefully it’ll come to me soon, cause I want to make a title reveal/all about my novel video of this story which has the temporary title Shadowborn (which does not fit the premise anymore). #authorsofinstagram #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amwritingya #authortube #novel #preptober #preptember

It started in elementary school when I was gifted markers and sketch pads for Christmas, when I joined photography clubs, and was told I had “an eye” for patterns. It kept going when I began to express my teen turmoil through very emo poems (if only I still had a copy of my poem The Hillbilly Ex-Boyfriend 🙃) and recording my fantastical dreams about zombies and flying unicorns. Now it’s focused to a unique world called Ashkadance, the kingdom in which Ember discovers she is actually Embrence Dragon Daughter - the initially unwilling protagonist raised in secret, fearful of her deformity (🐲 scales). Creating a happy, creative, and growth/challenge-focused life is a driving force in my psyche. How can I spread joy today? How can I be a better person today? Is that a good font choice? (lmao) Life is what you make it. I’m creating an epic one. It’s all up to me. What is up to you? Can you claim it by taking one step in that direction today? 2018 is my year of Pursuit. Watch me grow. 📸@rhapsodyreads #HappyStoryBible #amwriting #amwritingya #yaauthors #yaauthor #yaauthirsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #storybibke #emberdragondaughter

Morning Darlings! ✨🌻☕️🌻✨ • #fantasywipseptember QOTD: what inspired your world/story? • AOTD: my bullied childhood and my desire to be strong regardless of those bullies and internal demons trying to bring me down. Because bullies are just that, bullies. They don’t deserve the satisfaction of seeing you cry. ✨💜🔮💜✨ • Also, I love this picture and this kinda looks like the hilt of the dagger I got at the Renaissance Faire this weekend ✨💜🔮💜✨
The 4:45 pm coffee hit me hard. I came up with an idea for a plot twist that changes everything in my story. I personally love the twist because not only is it sufficiently shocking (if I do say so myself), it solves the problems I've been having-a lagging middle, unclear motivations, several disjointed storylines. However, I do have two big reservations: 1) It may be too convoluted for me to adequately explain, and 2) (the big one) It moves too far away from the mood and themes I was originally shooting for. What do you guys think? How long do you guys stew over your ideas? Do you think mood and theme are important, or are you willing to compromise on those things when the perfect idea comes along? #ineedadvice #amwriting #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #amreading #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #amwritingya #amwritingmystery #writingadvice #1amwritersclub Photograph from @pexelsphotos again.

There is a 1950s-style American diner in the heart of Florence, Italy. My main character goes there on a breakfast date, and this very nice waitress I had (her name is Chiara) makes a cameo in that chapter. I wrote a draft of the chapter while sitting in that restaurant, and she gave me her email address and asked me to send her a copy of the chapter to beta read when I finished a more polished version. I just sent it to her this evening. Like, am I just a total nerd, or is that freakin’ cool? . #italy #firenze #untitleditalynovel #author #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #amwriting #amwritingya #ya #yaauthor #yacontemporary #writer #writersofinstagram #authorsofig #writersofig #storytelling #yafic #yalit #teenlit #teenfic #youngadult #youngadultfiction #novel #novelwriting #debutnovel #justwrite #scrivener
✖ SELECTIVE MUTISM ✖ In anticipation of Selective Mutism Awareness Month coming up soon, I thought I'd share a quote from my YA novel. 💙 This one sentence is just one of the many that depicts the daily challenges of one of the main characters who struggles with this condition.✒ • Although this little known condition is not the main focus of my book, it does play a huge part in it and shows that despite trauma and the difficulties of life, someone can find their voice and who they really are. But sometimes, they can't do it alone. 💙 Another character shows just how much they care by being there for them, loving and accepting them for who they are and proving to them that they are worth it. 💙 • I love my book SO much that I can't wait for you all to read it and to meet the characters that shaped this beautiful story. 💜 ____________🌙______________ #selectivemutism #selectivemutismawarenessmonth #amwritingya #yacontemporary #yalit #loveozya #youareheard #lovethisstory #atsatw #nianadevine

I’m pretty sure I read every single Magic Treehouse book there was. Honestly I’m surprised I haven’t written a time traveling book yet! Hmmmm...maybe I should... • What inspired you?? ✨☕️📚☕️✨
🌟 It's been slow ngl but I am officially at the 45k mark! I really wanted 50k by the end of the month, I could do it if I'm strict with myself but work is so consuming right now...! 🌟 #writersofinstagram #aspiringauthor #aspiringwriter #amwritingya #amwriting #book2
