This is one of my favorite pieces of advice. I was a struggling writer up until I wrote my college admissions essay. Writing about the hard stuff makes writing meaningful. If you can make writing meaningful and relatable to your students’ and their experiences, you’ll be surprised at the output you receive 📝. #engagement #classroompinspirations #writingprompts #writersofinstagram #teacherblogger #teacherswhofollowteachers #writereadrepeat #youngwriters #literacymatters #emotionalregulationskills
Muscle Vines // The first unusual quality of muscle vines to strike people is their colouration. Even on Yaldev, there aren't many purple plants, and the few which are tend to be fruit. They lack any amount of green due to an utter lack of chloroplasts. Rather than use sunlight for energy, muscle vines absorb mana. They specialised to absorb liquid mana when it was more common on Yaldev. They nearly went extinct when levels of pure mana on the planet decreased, but managed to survive by adapting to the passive absorption of mana directly from the Aether. Yet, if muscle vines are confronted with a source of more pure mana, they will still act to grasp at it out of evolutionary instinct.
Creative drought is a difficult thing to overcome, but speaking from my own personal experience of dealing with the beast, I’ve noticed that certain things can be done to alleviate it. . After following the #NaNoWriMo tag for a while - and reading other people's accounts of struggle and triumph in their creative process - I wanted to contribute to that conversation today. 😊 . I find that the best cure for writers' block is to simply sit at my desk and break down, bullet point by bullet point, the most boring, mundane details of what I see a character doing in my mind’s eye. That sometimes helps me unearth a small nugget of information that will carry the story forward. . ~🌜~🌝~🌛~ . For example: X goes to fridge. X wants orange juice. X realises that there is no orange juice left because someone else in the house drank it all. X wonders why that person (at this stage, I have no idea who the offender is – it could be a partner, friend, or family member) did this when they know that it was X’s orange juice. At that very moment, the juice guzzler returns home and the drama escalates. 😱 X is furious and ready to burn the place down. 😉 . ~🌜~🌝~🌛~ . Characters have a will of their own. Every time I begin a new story, their thoughts and motivations are a mystery. . Things are revealed to me as I go on: I might see a fleeting image that makes their backgrounds clearer to me, or a stray thought might float through my mind. . I know it is important to follow up on whatever insight I’ve just received, even if this means just scribbling it down in a notebook, where it will not see the light of day again for weeks or months. I never regret recording a sudden thought, image, sound – whatever form the insight takes – even if I don’t make use of it again for quite some time. . . #ForeverWeavingLegends #NaNoWriMo2018 #WritingTips #WritingPrompts #WritersOfInstagram #Writestagram #CreativeWriting #CreativeWriters #CreativeMinds #WritersBlock #CreativeBlock #CreativeDrought #WritingAdvice #WritingStruggles
The Martian Chronicles is a 1950 science fiction by Ray Bradbury that chronicles the colonization of Mars by humans fleeing from a troubled and eventually atomically devastated Earth, and the conflict between aboriginal Martians and the new colonists. The book lies somewhere in between a short story collection and an episodic novel. Es uno de los libros más hermosos escritos en el que se experimenta la ciencia ficción con la poesía de un modo magistral y melancólico. Uno de los cuentos más importantes de todos que son considerados individualmente como pequeñas Obra maestra del relato es la llamada " tercera expedición" que impresionó a nada menos que a Jorge Luis Borges. Está considerado uno de los libros más importantes del siglo 20. #writingtips #writingcommunity #writing #writingprompts #bookstagram #booksonbooks #booksofinstagram #literatura #literature #literaturelover

Soooooo...here’s what happened? Back in winter 2016 when I was working on Gigolo All the Way, my holiday/Christmas novella, I was searching for “inspiration.” I stumbled upon this cutie in a Calvin Klein ad, Torin Verdone. I thought he was cute and immediately aged him, added a profession, and some characteristics and I had a hero for my heroine whose story I wanted to tell. Enter in Nicholas Partridge for Noelle Rudolph! So Torin is my #mcm this week! And oh by the way...EXCITING NEWS ABOUT GIGOLO ALL THE WAY COMING NOVEMBER 1st. . . . . . #monday #love #crush #mondaymotivation #man #mondaymood #instagood #crushedit #mondays #manga #fitness o#romanceheroes #mondaycouple #model #crushonhair #mondaynight #writingprompts #mancrushmonday #mondayfunday #jnsgems #mancrushmondays #mondaynights #mondayvibes #instagood #mancandymonday #mancandy

Growing old scares us. The fear of losing the ones we have known haunts us. But, have you ever watched leaves growing old? They change colors and yet stick together. In this long, tiring and manipuling journey of our life we retain a few individuals. They are like the last few leaves of a tree. Then one day we depart, we fall off the branches we have always stuck to. Dried and exhausted we carry the holes created by the pain of departure. Isn't that the essence of longing?

Do you have *that* player in your group?
"There’s a brief moment when you first wake up where you have no memories, a blissful blank slate, a happy emptiness, but it doesn’t last long and you remember exactly where you are and what you are trying to forget." — Carrie Bradshaw, #bookworm #booklover #booknerdigans #igbooks #bibliophile #writersofig #authorlife #writerscorner #writerscommunity #writers #writerslife #writingprompts #writerscommunity #writersfollowwriters #writersofig #travelwriter #deepthoughts #void #poem #poems #poemsofinstagram #days #light #shines #bright #moments #love #darkness

L O S S 🍎 Loss is such a stupid word. It implies a carelessness, an inattentiveness, an forgetfulness. We had scraped every moment out like the last spoonful of jam in the jar. We had stayed awake night after night to be sure that all was well. I remember it all with painful clarity. As far as I was concerned, we were not the ones to suffer a loss, we were the ones who suffered a leaving. 🍎 I've had this idea for a long time but I've notbyet had the courage to write it. Maybe I don't think I could do it justice. Or maybe I'm scared of how much it might hurt and what I might find ifnI look too deep inside myself. 🍎 #whataboutus #contemporaryfiction #sadquotes #grief #loss #family #writingsnippets #christianwriter #writingprompts #writersofig #writersofinsta #writersofinstagram #fivestages #plantingtrees #amwriting

Appreciating where you are.
It is hard to stay in that creative space. 😔 It is frustrating, depressing and fills me with horrible anxiety when I cannot put word to paper. I can’t shut off and I can’t function. Like Joseph Conrad, I see my story everywhere. I hear it in everything. I see it in everything. It is painful. It is discouraging. It makes me feel crazy. #writersblock #writing #writinglife #writersofinstagram
