Hinter dem 11. Türchen der #mylittlebookmas
Challenge von @autorin.ina.glahe
wartet heute die Frage:
Woher kommen deine Ideen?
Die einfache Antwort ist... aus Büchern, Zeitungen, Liedern und Gesprächen, von Reisen, Erlebnissen und Plakatwänden, aus Kinofilmen, Kunstwerken und Landkarten.
Die wahre Antwort lautet: Ich weiß es nicht genau.
Und gerade dieses Geheimnis liebe ich am Schreiben. Ich bin selbst immer wieder überrascht, welchen abenteuerlichen Verlauf eine Geschichte nimmt und staune darüber wie meine Heldinnen sich behaupten.
Manchmal fliegen mir die Ideen um die Ohren, wie Popcorn, dass aus einem heißen Topf springt und ich komme kaum mit dem Schreiben nach. Manchmal ist es, als ziehe ich mühsam einen Eimer aus einem magischen Brunnen herauf.
Doch immer beginnt es damit, einen kleinen Schüssel in das Schloss zu meiner Kreativität zu stecken.
Und dieser kleine Schlüssel besteht aus den drei Wörtern "Was wäre wenn...?"
"Was wäre, wenn ich die Hauptrolle in Schwanensee tanzen könnte?"💐
"Was wäre, wenn ein Mann aus einem Traum mit in meine reale Welt kommen würde?" ⏳
"Was wäre, wenn ich für eine Nacht die mächtige Herrscherin eine alten Reiches wäre?"

——-Not special. Not talented.
—Hard headed and Driven.
The doctors asked one of my family members why they continued to have such faith I would live when I was in the hospital and all of the doctors had given me zero percent chance to live...the family member told the doctors “cause he’s too much of an asshole and hard headed to just die.”
Tenderly aggressive aggressively tender.

Have you ever felt stuck in a no-win situation?
Then you know the power of black-and-white thinking. There’s no mutually agreed upon win-win. Someone is right, someone is wrong. Someone wins, someone loses.
But you do not have to subscribe to this false choice. It is rooted in perfectionism because to be wrong in this case means to fail. And failure is unacceptable when you’re struggling with perfectionism. So you surround yourself with situations and people that back up this rigid reality.
Once you start to heal, you realize that things aren’t nearly so high-stakes to your self-worth because you already love yourself. You aren’t earning love or acceptance so you don’t feel the need to bend or to break to get by. There is no such thing when you have boundaries. Boundaries come from ditching perfectionism and figuring out what you really will and won’t accept. •
When you truly are enough for yourself, what you will and won’t accept is the same on your best days and your worst days. I know because I’ve gone through this process myself.💕
By healing my old stories about my lack of personal worth, strength and worthiness (all lies from my inner critic) and replacing them with the truth about myself (which at a basic level is that as a human being I’m worthy of unconditional love and healthy connection), I have completely changed my life. I wrote a book about it, “Escaping Perfectionism” (link in bio!), to help you heal too.
Remember, everything is figureoutable, because you’re resourceful, beautiful, and enough. As-is.💕
Last Tuesday I encouraged all of you to finish strong. Welp, this week I’m finishing strong, wrapping up my last class for undergrad. I’ll turn in my final assignment tomorrow, then I have around 33 days before I start my first class for grad school 😱 Yes, that 33 days will be a well deserved break, but I’ve also set a HUGE goal for myself. Are you ready for this? I’m going to write the next 10 chapters in my currently untitled second book. This will bring me to around 5 chapters left to write, and total approximately 50,000 words. Five, zero, comma, zero, zero, zero. In 33 days. Crazy!
But you know what else is crazy? I know it’s doable. And when it’s done, the book will be almost complete. It’s crazier not to go for it.
If all that wasn’t enough, think of all the momentum that much productivity will creat. Charging into the last two weeks of the year driving full bore, blowing through the holiday, and starting the new year with an established rhythm will only carry forward. I really can’t think of a better way to bridge my first last semester and my last first semester.
Your turn! What big, scary, amazing goal are you going to charge into going into the new year? Share, share, share! I really want to know!

The adorable little snowman in this story is lonely. He sits atop a snowy hill, forever hoping that the little girl who made him will return and play. Little woodland animals come and go. Some nestle awhile in his scarf and hat, others sniff around his feet for nuts and berries, but none of them stay very long. The poor snowman begins to think that he must be very dull indeed if no one wants to stay and be his friend.
Then one day he sneezes and accidentally swallows a firefly – and everything changes. The firefly causes his tummy to glow and soon this spectacle draws creatures from far and wide. They all want to see the wonder of the glowing snowman!
The snowman loves the attention he is receiving and finds himself accidentally telling a little lie, claiming the special glow has something to do with his family history. He knows it is wrong but he just can’t help himself – having new friends feels so good!
But deep down the little snowman knows that what he has done is wrong and he can’t keep the firefly trapped in his tummy any longer. He decides to tell the truth and he lets the firefly go. As he watches the animals walk away he presumes he has lost his new friends. Or has he?
This is such a lovely story with a really strong moral. It teaches children the importance of honesty and integrity, and shows how real friendship is based on much more than appearances or material things.
The illustrations make this book truly unique. The mix of visual textures on the page make it really eye-catching and you cannot help but fall in love with the childlike image of the snowman himself. Ivy loves to stroke his face whilst i’m reading the story and coos over the images of him looking sad. As a lovely touch, some of the images included have been drawn by real kids which I think is fantastic!

Noch eins von meinen self published Ideenbüchern. "Go for it" hört sich in Verbindung mit Ideenbuch doch nach einem guten Plan an, oder? Das Buch gibt es übrigens in Deutsch und Englisch bei Amazon (Link im Profil).
One more of my idea book. "Go for it" in comparison with a book for ideas sounds like a great plan, doesn't it? The book is available in German and English at Amazon (link in bio).

"Receiving these gifts in the mail this week feels like the holiday season has arrived! I’ve been cranking Christmas music, we cut down a Hawaiian grown pine tree for our house and I’m going to attempt to shibori dye some stockings this year. I am really glad I created these early and am ready to stun our families with them before we leave on our holiday travel! I know our families are going to be ecstatic." || 🌲 @elanaloo
Who is with me on this one! 👊👍
"My mum always makes 2 per person with leftovers. If she served it at a dinner party she would make a couple of small ones hidden in the dish too, as mum is a firm believer that if you have guests they should never eat alone. So if a guest is still eating, mum would take a small one and slowly eat it to make them feel they were not eating alone. It’s a lovely way, and one I have adopted myself - no matter what the dish I’ve served"
This is my favourite part of the story that accompanies this recipe for Hakke bøf (pronounced hugga boef) from my lovely friend and fellow foodie Kristie from @freyasnourishment
It's been a while since I posted about my Edible Heirlooms cookbook, but I'm still working away on it
I'm squeezing it in between jobs but I'm on target to have it ready for you to buy next year
