I just wrapped up an emotion-filled writing session. It's time to shut down and continue tomorrow. Sweet dreams. #mawriterlife #writinglife #writerlife #keepwriting #emotions #dreamchaser #dontstopbelieving #goodnight #pmwriting
AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT: It's not very often that I promote myself but today I am. With the upcoming plans to publish Egyptian Curse I wanted to share with you the first book in The Collective Series⠀ - ⠀ Tilly, a curious university student is forcefully whisked away on an adventure back to the 1700's by a vengeful man. Her only saviour? A library frequenter with a secret.⠀ - ⠀ It's 0.99 on Kindle and 8.99/11.99 (depends where you are in the world) for the paperback copy. It really would mean the world to me if you'd at least click the link in my bio and go and check it out. ⠀ - ⠀ “The book is full of intriguing plot twists and there are plenty of mysterious moments that leave you wondering what will happen next.”⠀ — Charlotte | Wonderfully Bookish⠀ - ⠀ Photo taken by @alex_cameron #tillyandjenny #thecollective #bookishfriendship #writerlife #writersofinstagram #authorlife #rswilliams #girlboss #writersofinsta #writersofig #writergram #wordsmith #writergirl #authorgram #bookquote #positivethinking #motivationalwords #inspiration #bepositive #powerofpositivity #bibliophile #bookish #booklover #booknerdigans #bookworm

#zeilentanzchallenge #tag21 Heute: Was ist das Besondere an meinem Buch Ganz klar, das gesamte Werk ist besonders 😜 Nein, jetzt mal im Ernst. Ich empfinde die innige Freundschaft zwischen Vince und Salo sehr besonders. Sie sind wie Brüder und fast ihr ganzes Leben schon beste Freunde. Sie würden ihr Leben ohne zu zögern für den anderen hergeben, was in meiner Geschichte durchaus relevant werden könnte. Habt ihr auch einen solchen besten Freund? 😊 #CTistheworkingtitle #writingislife #writingismysuperpower #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #schreibenschreibenschreiben #autorwerdenisthartearbeit #ohnefleißkeinpreis #writing #fantasy #roman #authorlife #writerlife #schreibenschreibenschreiben #ichhalteeuchaufdemlaufenden #sarahofreadia

Some days, writing may be a struggle. Your characters might seem like they’re lost in a hedge maze and falling through plot holes. 🕳Your synapses are misfiring and words are escaping through the seams. That coffee doesn’t seem to have kicked in. ☕️🚧🌀 . Don’t worry. Take a break. Rest. Maybe the inspiration you need to write your masterpiece will only be found if you look away from it for a little while. 🌅🌌 . . . #rest #inspiration #amwriting #writersofig #authorsofinstagram #WIP #writersofinstagram #write #iwriteya #ireadya #youngadultbooks #writerlife #writersroutine #igauthors #storytelling #writenow #yalit #writer #wordcount #writerlife #writingtechniques #amwriting #amediting #writingprocess #sunset #california #californiawriters
Writing Tip Day 263👇👇 "Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you're working. Tell them it's research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone."

Je crois qu'il faudra qu'un jour j'écrive un poème à la gloire du café. En effet que serait un auteur sans sa dose de caféine quotidienne ? Il dormirait, rêvasserait au mieux, mais il n'ecrirait pas avec force et rage. Alors quand certains me demandent comment je parviens à écrire autant dans tant de genre différents, je voudrais répondre qu'il n'y a pas de miracle : le café ! Parce qu'un roman se compte moins en nombre de mots qu'en litres de café... La cafetière se remplit goutte à goutte, le temps de mettre mon PC en marche je pourrais, un café refroidissant sur un coin de mon bureau, me plonger dans l'écriture ☕ Passer une belle journée, n'abusez pas de la caféine ceci est réservé aux écrivains 😄 profitez de ces belles journées d'automne et prenez soin de vous... des bisous le café est prêt : j'y vais ! . #coffee #cafe #booklove #bookislife #bookstagram #writerlife #creativity #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #writingcommunity #écrivain #bookaholic #écrivain #coffeelovers #cafe#coffeephotography #coffeeaddiction #coffeeislife #café #novelist #auteure #ecriture #bibliophile #bookaholic
The best thing about aging is giving fewer and fewer fucks with each passing year. I turned 34 over the summer and have only recently started going places without makeup or a proper outfit on. I used to get anxious about running into people when I wasn't 'ready' so I always, always put on mascara and stressed about whether or not I looked 'ok'. . . 24 year old me always covered imperfections and fixed her lashes, at a minimum. It wasn't about being perfect or beautiful or mega-attractive but more of an ever-present anxiety from being raised to NEVER leave the house without mascara because WHO THE HELL DOES THAT (a lot of people, actually). It felt like leaving the house without pants. I still feel the urge to apologize for my bare face, sometimes, as if I'm inflicting myself on others vs simply existing. . . But there's progress as we age and step back from the pressures we learned to live with. These days, I show up looking as pulled together or hot mess as I feel. Sometimes I'm in full makeup and cute clothes (I do love both of those things) and sometimes I'm in worn out leggings and soaking wet a top knot. I'm often somewhere in between. I finally don't care...much. ;) . . This morning I dropped my kids at school and then popped into Homesense wearing yoga pants, a beige trenchcoat and dock shoes that have seen better days. My hair was a mess and I had my glasses on instead of contacts. Was I attractive? Nope. Did I need to be? Nope. Did I care? NOPE. And I got shit done. Would I have cared if I'd run into someone from high school or work or an ex-boyfriend, maybe? Probably, because its only human to want to impress. I'd rather run into old connections at an event where I look my best and am not dressed like the suburban mom version of Inspector Gadget. I think that's fair. But overall, I've relaxed. . 34 is still young so I'm either learning this life lesson prematurely or going to be wearing plastic bags as clothes by the time I'm 40. Time will tell, I guess. Cheers to that. #momlife #writerlife #onwomen . . . . #motherhood #parenting #toronto #instagood #instamom #mom #writer #blogger #style #zerofucks #fashion #makeup #lifelessons #confidence #aging
All the books with all the answers! 🙏🏼 Everyone in my critique group brought our books about writing to share at our retreat last weekend. I love having such amazing writer friends to learn from, share ideas and give support. Writer friends, if you haven't picked these up, take note!! My personal faves are: On Writing, by Stephen King (who I've seen live and is actually hilarious!!), Save the Cat, by Blake Snyder and The Emotion Thesaurus, by Angela Ackerman and Becca Pugkisi. On Writing is epic and entertaining and you MUST read it if you are a serious writer. What other ones do you love??
Perhaps... One day i wont be here and the world will not remember how long i slept and how many breaths i took. Nature wont recall that bad day, that zit, or that argument. The sky won't remember that i didnt come out to soak up the sun or my complaints about the winter snow. And the earth will keep spinning, unbothered, like it did before i came here. * So if so much of what i pour my attention into fades and will not matter years from now, what actually does matter? What actually has meaning if not a zit, an argument, a bad day. What actually is worth my time and atrention? * #meaning #truth #life #focus #qotd #poetry #poemofthday #spilledink #wordstagram #writingcommunity #writerssociety #poemsociety #poetryofig #writingchallenge #writerlife
Fun fact: When Al Capone was held at Alcatraz, he gave regular Sunday concerts with the inmate band, the Rock Islanders.

I'm hormonal, sleep deprived, and fighting off a migraine. But I did the thing. Tomorrow night I'm going back to switching off my wifi. But now, I'm confident in my habit of writing daily. This is working. Now all I have to do is increase my focus in order to do more with the habit than write the world's slowest book. #amwriting #100daysofwritingchallenge #100daysofwriting #authorproblems #authorsofinstagram #wiccanhaus #writerlife #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #mmromance #lgbtromance #paranormalromance #pnr #writehabit

Word of the Day: Nepenthe Noun Anything including a pleasurable sensation of forgetfulness, especially of sorrow or trouble After a lot of anxiety, the feeling of nepenthe is nice, even for just a moment - I tend to pick words that show emotion for word of the day because emotions are hard to put into words, so hopefully these are helpful 😊 #wordoftheday
Criticism can be hard. I just got a critique back from a critique partner. Although there are some good points were made, but still it's hard especially when you first read the initial critique. . First I allow myself to feel my initial feelings and not judge myself. . I remember that a critique is subjective, and at its core an opinion. So you can pick and choose which points you want to take. . I also remember that critiques are neccessary to improve my work. They're elements a CP can see that the writer has missed in their work. . So it's good to take the points that I believe will help me, and creating the best story is the important thing. . How do you deal with criticism? #writer #writerlife #write #writersofinstagram #igwrite

Today my sister @paulalwhite and I both had opeds published. She advocating for improved education outcomes in the ‘Montclair Local’, and me advocating for improved mental health outcomes in ‘Modern Healthcare’ (see link in bio). (I gotta say it feels pretty awesome to share this accomplishment with her). When I was first asked to write this piece I produced a depersonalized ‘academic’ piece. That’s my default. I talked about the stigma of mental illness among Aftican Americans and suggested how to fix it. However, as always, the publishers asked for me to tell a bit of my own journey with mental illness because telling my story gives the piece more power. No matter how many times I share my experiences with bipolar disorder, it never comes naturally. But I do understand that what I have achieved in spite of a chronic, severe mental illness has the power to inspire change in policy, programs and people. Do you share personal stories as part of your work? How do you feel about being vulnerable in this way? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #mentalhealth #healthdisparities #healthequity #culturalcompetence #AfricanAmericans #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthisimportant #nostigma #mentalhealthishealth #professorruth #professor #professorlife #academic #theivorytower #ivorytower #blackacademic #writer #writerlife #authorlife

#fantasywipseptember Day 20: What makes your world unique? 🐲🐉🐲🐉🐲 I enjoyed everybody's posts for this prompt, discussing why their world is unique. My reason is the characters. There aren't a lot of fantasy novels that aren't dominated by straight white men, I think some queer* characters and POC are owed their time to be the heroes of fantasy novels.
Ever thought about the meaning of your last name? Of course, many a black person would tell me that it is "my slave last name." They would never say that about my first name which is hysterical. I mean, my first name is Arabic. My middle name is from the Akan language of Ghana. Most don't know that they are both female names. I get called "sir" a lot even with my profile photo being a symbol or artwork like this one. I was born female and never been a guy in my life or want to be one. Anyway, my last name is Scottish, English, and Welsh. It's the 21st most common last name in America and 23rd most common last name in England. Personally, I accept that I am Black American. My ancestry includes lines that go back to both Africa and Europe not just native to these United States of America. I accept the fact my story is holistically American. Native American. Immigrant American. Black American. I am intersectionality breathing and walking. Every time I see or interact with someone who has my last name no matter their ethnicity, nationality, race, etc., it has always been a positive experience. I'm always grateful because it makes me feel like a global citizen. Sharing a common last name brings a great energy of camraderie not just commonality. Thus, I invite you all to research your last names and see what you find out about them. See how they fit you. If you're married, research the origins of your married last names, too. Last names are a part of us whether we chose them or not. They have been a part of our identities since birth so you might as well embrace yours. I cherish and take pride in mine no matter the way in which it came about so I will die with the same name that I was born with. 💭💯🎤💬✔ 💯✔💬🎤 #KLife #KWork #writerlife #bloggerlifebound #blog #blogger #writers #writersofig #realtalk  #onlinelife #offlineeffects #surname #harrispride #iamaharris #iamme #journey #selfdevelopment #selfgrowth #lifelessons #selfawareness #speakingmytruth #speakingmymind #writingmytruth #writingmymind #writertherapy #2018strong #human #teacher #student #kthblogs
