Should I write, or should I read about writing? Or should I just keep modifying my storyboard until I go mad? 🤔 #Campnanowrimo has been tough for me so far. I'm far from my goal, but I still think I can make it! How's everyone doing with writing? . . . . . . . . . #amreading #amwriting #amwritingya #booklover #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writer #writerscorner #authorsofig #mywords #ilovewriting #writingcommunity #writenow #instawriter #bibliophile #writerslife #authorsofinstagram #author #onwriting #bookstagram #margaretatwood #booknerd #bookish #bookaholic
New book, new pen, and a Chai. Snowing outside, so I took myself to Starbucks. 😊 I am taking a writing retreat this weekend. Checked myself into a hotel in order to read and write and revise without the cats and without the pressure of everything I need to get done at home. I have three looming deadlines on 4/30, 5/4 and 5/11 so if I didn’t do this for myself then I would lose my mind in the next two weeks. 😳 I am going to relax and enjoy my break, but then back to WRITING! 🤨🖋📖✍️ . . . #amwriting #starbucks #craftalifeyoulove #amytangerine #writersfollowwriters #writerssupportingwriters #writersofinstagram #writersretreat #amrevising #timetowrite #writingdeadline #aspiringauthor #poet #writingcommunity #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #writinglife #amwritingpoetry #amwritingya

About to start editing chapter 3! This probably is going to be the hardest; I already know some scenes I must delete, rewrite, and add. But I’m ready to tackle this one! ☕️ #campnanowrimo
Come writers one and all, come readers and be enthralled! The book I've ungraciously cropped in half is Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury, originally published in 1962 and it has to be one of my favourite books of all time. The language is poetry and the story is both magical and chilling! It's not an easy read at times and is certainly surreal. But there is so much writer can learn from his characterisations and descriptions of people and his vibrant and unusual action sequences. For example. 'There was a thing in Dad's voice, up, over, down, easy as a hand wringing soft in the air like a white bird describing flight patterns, made the ear want to follow and the mind's eye to see.' (p.33 Gollancz edition 2008) Bradbury's ability to show emotion through descriptive language stands out. He gifts his characters unique and defined inner voices, which are key to successfully showing rather than telling emotions. 'His skin was suddenly a lizard's skin. His stomach filled with blood turned to rust. His mouth tasted of night damps.' (p.50) Here a character is afraid and unnerved and we as the reader feel it through the prose without being told explicitly. Bradbury was truly a wordsmith! I could list endless examples, I've not even gotten to the part with the blind witch in the air balloon and the extraordinary language used in the action sequences! But this isn't the place for an essay, so get hold of the book if you can and read it.

"Every turn I take/ Every trail I track/ Is a choice I make/ Now I can't turn back/ From the great unknown/ Where I go alone/ Where I long to be" ~ "how far I'll go", Moana • I was away but feel this is an appropriate quote for returning to a post-vacation world 😬 Anyway, I keep telling myself that I'm going to quit, that I'm tired of failing to write the RIGHT thing..and then I remember how long I've been doing this. I owe it to myself to keep going into the great unknown and not turn back to what might be easier or more comfortable. • ‪#amwritingfantasy #amwriting #amrevising #amediting #writers #writing #amwritingYA #igauthorlife #igauthors #authorsofinstagram#igwriter #igwriters #igwritingcommunity #instawriter #writer #writersofig #writerslife #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writinglife #motivationalquotes #motivation #quotestoliveby #quoteoftheday #photoshop #plotaverse #writersfollowwriters

#Day2 of @authorbethanyatazadeh ’s #BAWritingLife challenge is all about my writing space. I think nothing fits this prompt more than this photo I took of my backpack, packed full and ready for a day of writing. I’m pretty fortunate that I’m someone who can write anywhere. Whether I’m at a busy Apple store waiting for a repair or at a theme park in line for a roller coaster. Both of which I have have done before. I will write whenever and wherever inspiration strikes! #writingcommunity #writingspace #amwriting #amwritingya #brisbaneauthor #brisbanewriters #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #writerlife #writersofinstagram #author
Do you have a mental illness? Do you feel like you're alone? You're not. I'm a part of a book called Invisible, Not Imagined. We talk about our struggles. We talk about what it's like. I joined this book hoping it'll make people aware. I wanted to share my story hoping it'll help someone else. Invisible, Not Imagined is only $2.99. All proceeds will be going to Rock the Cause. #BookNerdigans . #BookLovers . #Bookworms . #Bookish . #BookWhore . #BookNerd . #Reads . #BookAddict . #GirlsWhoRead . #Bookstagram . #BookCommunity . #Instabooks . #BooksOfIG . #ReadersOfInstagram . #AmWriting . #Writers . #IndieAuthors . #AuthorsOfIG . #WritersOfIG . #AuthorLife . #AWritersLife . #BusinessLife . #MarketingLife . #YAAuthor . #AmWritingYA . #MentalIllness . #MentalHealthMatters . #MentalHealthAwareness .
I’m doing this out of order to keep the theme consistent. #Day3 of @authorbethanyatazadeh ’s #BAWritingLife challenge and I thought I would take the opportunity to reveal the draft book cover I created and introduce my #WIP ! How to see the invisible girl is a tale about a girl who learns how to stand out, from a boy who wants to blend in. It’s a contemporary #YA novel and a coming of age story I think everyone will be able to relate to, no matter age, race, sexuality or gender. All of the struggles are in this book. The first draft is almost complete and edits/rewrites will hopefully begin in May! This story is my baby and I can’t wait to get it into the world! #amwriting #amwritingya #authorlife #writerlife #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #australianauthor #australianwriter

If I ever become an evil overlord: 3) I will never employ a device with a digital countdown. If I find that such a device is absolutely unavoidable, I will set it to activate when the counter reaches 117 and the hero is just putting her plan into operation.

Back to writing after some much needed days off. The words are flowing in the sunshine #amwriting #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #amwritingya #sunshine #nanowrimo #britishsummer #pubgarden
I am grateful that my step kids love me but the cats definitely crashed the writing party this morning.
Day 6 of #12daysofbookstagram is #flatlay , so here’s today’s workspace. When I write, I always like to have books nearby, maybe to inspire me? 😜 For those who don’t know, I’m working on a YA novel and I’m completely in love with my characters and their story. I’m about 2/3 the way through, and I try to a spend few hours a couple days a week working on it (hopefully summer will bring more writing time!). • • • #amwriting #amwritingya #bookstagram #readingandwriting #kitchables

I just finished THE DIABOLIC by @sjkincaidbooks and it’s a perfect example of what we talked about in our last episode: consistently making tension rise through changes and twists in the plot.

Ahh...another video (yes I quote Harry Potter too much come at me) I’m so excited about this one because fantasy is my all time favourite genre!! But I couldn’t help but notice that all the romances are super rushed? Even the well developed ones there are moments that are a lot more than you expected! Plus I rant about twilight, so...it’s a fun one!

Day Three #bawritinglife Work in Progress: I have 17, but that is for another day. The one on the forefront is a young adult novel in verse about four teens who go missing. The story is told by four alternating narrators in a five act structure. Wow, sorry, my English teacher side just came out. I am currently editing/revising parts one and two. I have started and stopped several novels, have total shiny squirrel moments in which I start writing something new and poof I go from 17 to 18. 😳 But this one, I am so in love with and excited for it...my heart is pitter pattering as I work on finishing it. . . . #amwritng #aspiringauthor #wip #writerlife #writersofinstagram #yanovel #amwritingya #youngadultnovel #novelinverse #amrevising #amediting #amdrafting #writerssupportingwriters #writersfollowwriters #writingcommunity

Day #3 : WIP #BAWritingLife I just started working on a four part Novella Series. I'm about 5k into Part One. Each part will have a female lead and be a little spooky. 😉💀👻 Here are my hints: Part One will be a little Wolfy. 🐺 Part Two will be a little ghoulish.☠ Part Three will be a little shrieky.👻 Part Four will be a little sewn together 💚 I'm hoping to release Crave (Ladies of Death) Part One this summer. 🤞🖤 What are you working on? What's your favorite monster movie? 😈 I love The Cabin in The Woods. #writers #werewolf #authorsofinstagram #spooky #spookywriter #horror #partone #novella #horrorwriters #summer2018 #whatareworkingon #yaauthors #yabooks #indieauthor #spooktacular #bloodwillspill #bloody #ilovehorror #ilovewriting #happytimes #urbanfantasy #urbanfantasyauthor #whatchawritingwednesday #writersworld #writerscoffeechat #authorsofinstagram #authorsupport #amwritingya

This is probably my favorite passage from the last installment of #TheLetterMage . Aleph and Alexander are easily one of my favorite couples I've ever written, mostly because Aleph can be such a prat. He's SUCH a nerd. They complement each other well: Alexander's more trustworthy, has actual social skills, Aleph actually thinks things through... ...But due to their circumstances, they're also just a little doomed, and they have to deal with that as a team. #writersofinstagram #writersofinsta #writersofig #lgbt #LGBTQ #LGBTQI #LGBTQIA #queer #queerlit #LGBTscifi #gayscifi #gayYA #amwriting #amwritingYA #amwritingLGBT #ILoveWriting #authorlife #writerscommunity #igbooks #bookwormforlife
Thanks to the little dude, I’m writing slower than ever before (it’s taken me an hour just to write this caption). And though he’s a great sleeper, he only likes to nap ON me. The baby carrier has been necessary to accomplish ANYTHING—writing, cleaning, cooking... everything, basically. I’ve really had to reset my expectations about what I can get done in a day, and find ways to balance writing and being a mom. But despite the struggles, I managed to finish a draft of my third book and get it sent to critique partners!!! And that kind of feels like the biggest accomplishment of my life. #igwritersapril #accomplishments #writingaccomplishment #book3 #amwriting #amwritingya #yacontemporary #yaauthor #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writerlife
#BAWritingLife Day 3 - My WIP is the third draft of #EmberDragonDaughter . It’s a YA high fantasy following a kidnapped princess who discovers she is the long lost heir of the dragon throne. Can she accept she is part of the family she has always been raised to fear? Can she stop the plague of madness that has been sweeping her kingdom? You’ll have to wait to find out! 🤪 I started the first draft March 2017 and have logged over 200 hours on this book. So excited with the changes I’ve put into the doc today. It’s my book baby and I love seeing it grow!

But how can I fight back when I don't have any weapons and the enemy is inside me? People with invisible illnesses are fighting a battle everyday, even if you can't see it. This anthology aims to shed some light on these illnesses and show you the strong warriors that are hiding behind them. All proceeds will be donated to Rock the Cause.

This book was the first I’d ever read on writing. It’s symbolic and precious. It spurred me on to learn a lot, but somewhere down the line I became stagnant... faithless... and a little too hard on myself. I’ve become a dawdler and my projects are like unsolved mysteries that I’ve little hope to decipher. Let’s see if we can change that. I’m digging up the past and searching for my roots 🤓📕 • • • #amlearning #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amwritingya #ya #youngadult #author #publishing #writing #writer #story #storytelling #prose #fantasy #future #ideas #hope #learn #improvement #writers #writersofinstagram
Who's you're #1 Supporter? My guy helps me whenever I need help, and I mean whenever. He knows that one of the biggest reasons I push myself to be a successful author is so I can retire him. He's given his all to our family for the past 26 years, and I want to give to him. Almost every morning when he leaves for work, he says "Comon' get up, get to work. No sleeping in." We laugh because we both know he's joking. He is usually telling me to make sure I listen to my body and get my rest. * * * #no1supporter #biggestsupporter #myhelper #successfulauthor #behindthescenes #bts #paranormal #mystery #suspense #yaparanormal #ghosts #authorlove #authors #authorslife #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #lovetowrite #writerslife #indieauthor #indieauthors #indieauthorsofinstagram #amwritingyoungadult #amwritingya #indieauthorsofinstagram #amwriting #amwritingfiction #books #bookslove #booksloveforever

Invisible, Not Imagined has a special place in my heart because of what it’s talking about. Mental illnesses. I wrote a true story about my struggles with depression and anxiety. I’m nervous to be sharing my story, but I didn’t let that stop me. I want to make others feel like they’re not alone. Plus I feel like they’re not talked about a lot, and it needs to be. I'm glad I was able to submit my story to this collection. You know what else?

Q: What do you love about being a writer? . All great writers have this one thing in common: they love their story. Whether it's a fictional account that exists only in the imagination or a report of real events a happening here and now, something drives us to put those words down on the page. I love the challenge of creating fictional characters, moving pieces until the puzzle just falls together. . . . #amwriting #amwritingya #amwritingnow #amwritingchallenge #amwritingfantasy #writerlife ✒️ #writerlife#writerlife ☕✒ #writerlifestyle #writerbrain #writingquotes #writinginspirations #writinginspirationiseverywhere #writergirl #writergirls #writergram #wordstoremember #wordaofinspiration #wordlover #wordnerd #writeeverydamnday #writersclub #writersworld #writers_den_
BETA’s needed for The Golden Oak Estate book 1. Weather you’ve done it before or not, as long as you can read my book and give me honest feed back is all I need. As I will be beginning my first draft very soon, I’m doing some forward planning and finding some BETA readers. My book is a young adult fiction, please note that there will be countryside activities such as shooting, horse riding/hunting so if your not into these activities (please no comments on this as I know some people aren’t and that’s fine, everyone is entitled to an opinion) then this isn’t the book for you. Swipe across to see a brief sypnosis and some images I gathered for inspiration from Pinterest, the only photo on the collage that belongs to me is the top left. Please message me or comment if you would be interested, I’m not sure exactly when I will be sending off for reading but I want to get everything ready in place. #thegoldenoakestate #goldenoakestate #book1 #betasneeded #callingbetareaders #writer #aspiringauthor #writing #amwritingfiction #amwritingya #betareadersneeded #betareaderswanted #betareaders
“I’ve thought up an ending for my book.” — Bilbo Baggins . After three days in the woods, I’ve thought up a lot of things — a richer world, a deeper history, a refined plot, more character backstories. I’ve scribbled maps and notes until my wrist ached. I’ve barely opened my computer or checked my phone. And now I’m feeling ready to conquer a full draft. Well, after a few days of letting my mind and this book rest 😴 . Annnnd moving apartments 😵 .

I missed yesterday’s #igwritersapril , so catching up today! My outlining process involves post-it notes. Lots and lots of post-it notes.

I thought I'd share some of my research material for my novels. 1.The Book of English Magic by Philip Carr-Gomm and Richard Heygate. 2. Alchemy Rising by Helophilus published by Scarlet Imprint. 3. A classic John Gerard's Herbal, this edition is from 1927. 4. Another herbal I use is by Deni Brown and was published in conjunction with The Chelsea Physic Garden into which I have added copious amounts of notes on the folklore and magical uses of herbs. Creating a whole magical system for my series was a challenge. I wanted it to be logical and feel plausible (magic asside) but also maintain mystery and a sense of history and timelessness. So, I looked at a lot of folklore and social ritual. I have alchemy in my world and consulting a book written by a modern practicer of the art felt essential. The herbals have helped in so many ways, such as describing smell and ingredients for magical tonics and teas. Let me know if you're interested in seeing more of my research material. 😊 . . #amwritingfantasy #amwritingya #amwriting #amoutlining #writerslife #writer #writersofinstagram #englishmagic #magic #novelwriting #witches #witch #witchcraft #herbal #herbalife #plantmagic #plantmagick #alchemy #scarletimprint #reading #booksaremagic

Having dealt with anxiety and self doubt since, well, birth, I am finally getting the courage to seriously pursue my writing passion. I am weeks away from having a polished poetry manuscript to send off into the world, and I have 16 other writing projects...part of that anxious mind issue...and why I am #writereclectic 😜 Though right now I am working on a YA novel in verse. I am excited to read everyone else’s posts this week who are doing this challenge.

He moves in front of me, pinning me to the building. My eyes frantically dart around us. My stomach lurches when I see the darkness that's surrounding us. There's not a lot of people out and about at this time of night--or, at least, not on the sidewalks. We're on a secluded part of the sidewalk, and we're on the outskirts of the streetlight. No one can see what's happening unless they walk right by us. It's too dark. I silently curse.

My love of learning has led to some fun tricks, such as pole vaulting, juggling, and flips. 😜 I look forward to showing you some of these on my YouTube channel (link in bio). 📖 Bookstagram is one of my new favorite hobbies. I’ve met so many kind and fun people on here. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all better and meeting even more friends. 📖 Tell me about you below!👇🏼 . . #bookstagrammers #bookstagrammersunite #bookstagrammer #lds #thechurchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersnetwork #amwritingya #amwritingfantasy #juggler #jugglers #polevaulters #polevaulter
