Prepping for a feature set at @listensoftlyldn on the weekend, the most fun I had had with my clothes on for a while, until the show last night. Which was epic. Love this job. #poetslife #amwriting #poem #poetry #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #writersofinstagram #writerslife

First find out what you don't want. 
And after that,
there is no need to be afraid to give in to the things you desire.

Hey everyone! I was tagged by @jlwillowbooks to do the Autumn Tag, so here I go… 
Favorite autumn weather: When it’s cold and windy. ❄️💨 Favorite autumn outfit: Anything that goes with my R2-D2 beanie. 
Apple pie or pumpkin pie: Pumpkin pie. 
Favorite autumn activity: Picking out pumpkins. The bigger, the better. 🎃

Favorite autumn food: I know it’s not technically a food, but I love warm apple cider. Now, if I had to be technical and pick a food, I love the jellied cranberry sauce. It’s the best.🍎☕️ Favorite autumn color: Crimson. Roll Tide!🐘🏈 Favorite month: December because of Christmas 🎄 but more importantly, Star Wars The Last Jedi comes out! 24 more days!!! This was really a fun tag! Thanks again @jlwillowbooks for tagging me! 
Keep on writing no matter what!

I just redecorated my reading and writing spot, because I was super homesick for Japan this week (I spent a semester abroad there recently), and whenever that happens, I get this urge to make my flat prettier. So now I have a fancy way to put up and change around the scenes of my novels - I only have to write them all down on little cards first 😂
(Those numbers are actually meant for an advent calendar - but I think they're perfect for a novel outline! :D)

My Nanowrimo project is at a little over 20 000 words - so it's still not going so well. But at least I like what I've written so far, and I'm still hopeful I can finish on time - I just work way better under pressure 😅

Alhumdulilah, we didnt ask for a role model like the Prophet Muhammed pbuh yet Allah gave us the best of man as a role model for the youth and the elderly to look upto, him and his sunnah. Take a moment to thank Allah for what you have and the life you live and no matter how deep lifes taken you, no one will suffer as much as the Prophet Muhammed pbuh suffered. Don't let the hardship of this world lead you to a point of no return for nothing is worse than denying the one who created you.

Tag 18, 19 & 20 #NaNoWriMo2017 :
So da bin ich wieder! In den letzten vier Tagen hab ich kein einziges Wort zu Papier gebracht und ich muss sagen so eine Pause hat mal ganz gut getan, auch wenn meine Vorsätze zunichte gemacht wurden 😅 Aber ich war auch ziemlich beschäftigt und hätte wirklich keine Zeit gefunden etwas zu tippen 🙈 neben Familiendramen hab ich ein paar #Kekse gebacken 😍 Und ich hoffe, dass mein Freund welche übrig lässt, bis ich nächste Woche wieder nach Hause komme, denn die am Bild sind alle die ich mitgenommen hab 😂😂 war nicht gut durchdacht XD 
Heute war der erste Tag an dem ich wieder was #geschrieben hab 😊 1284 #Wörter sind leider nur geworden, aber besser als ein Stein am Kopf 😜

Mein #Scrivener sagt übrigens, dass mein #SmokeandMirrors Projekt bereits 99 #Taschenbuchseiten zählt 😍 das macht mich soooo #happy 😍💖 Wie läufts bei euch? Zehn Tage noch - seid ihr noch voll dabei, oder ist die Luft schon raus? 😉

Starting my Christmas reading for the season. First up Christmas at Gate 18 by @amymatayo.author Anyone have any other suggestions for Xmas reads?

#LetsWriteNaNoWriMo2017 asks for me to introduce a sub-character today, and I thought I'd introduce you to my favourite - Rhys.
.
A young businessman, covered in blood and bruises, and dressed in a suit and tie was found by Al and his daughter a couple weeks after the apocalypse began. Al believes himself to owe Rhys a life-debt. But, despite the amount of times Rhys has risked his life to save him - breaking a leg included - Rhys says that it is he who owes Al!
.
Five years later, Rhys is still the nicest guy you could ever meet, and the sort of guy the world needs to carry on. He's also the sort of guy you would want with you in a zombie apocalypse - do to his love of gaming - and is the only one of Al's group that understands his need to keep reading the diary of a twelve-year-old girl. Even when it's all gone wrong, you can count on Rhys to be there.
.
I found this image on pinterest, and thought it was perfect for my beat-up, but still handsome good guy!

Had this for nearly a year and finally wearing it for the first time today. Reminds me of one of my characters so I couldn't resist buying it. Have you ever purchased something because it reminded you of a character you love?

"Una storia fatta di amore e odio, che sfugge ancora ad ogni mio intendere, che mi è ancora inaccessibile, celata nelle profondità della mia carne, cieca come un neonato il primo giorno. Di lì comincia il silenzio, quel silenzio sul quale mi affatichero' lentamente per tutta la vita. Sono ancora qui, sempre ugualmente distante dal mistero.
Non ho mai scritto credendo di farlo,
non ho mai amato credendo di amare,
ho solo aspettato davanti a quella porta chiusa."

I wear the universe backwards and go fishing in the clouds. I imagine putting the stars into my coffee and two spoons of sugar into the sky. I’m too busy dancing with my imagination than to even tip-toe with reality. I’m playing hide and seek with the two rocks in the sky, day in and day out. I’m going mad they say. They’re right! 🤩

Stop searching for the perfect ones.
The perfect friend,
The perfect family.
Not everything is perfect.
And they don't need to.
If everything was perfect why would we even wish to do something.
To strive, to dream or to do any damn thing to make us feel good.
It's all planned.
Stop nagging it.
Stop complaining.
Just find your Happy place.
Reach the standards that you hold for others.
Perfection is actually overrated.

Had to share this. I recently finished a first draft, and am fortunate enough to have some fantastic members of the @phoenixauthors team who had a look. The feedback was extremely helpful, but also made me wonder how far from a finished product I was. Then, perhaps not by coincidence I saw this. It gave me perspective that really helped; that it's normal first and foremost for a first draft to feel like it's only got 5% gold in it, it's normal that whole sections or even characters might need to get the chop. But at the end of the day, the basis of what can be a fantastic story may still lie there in the mess. So I gotta keep editing, keep writing, and one day this pile of bricks could be a mansion! 💪 🏡

A stunning outtake from yesterday’s anniversary collab with Mexico City local intimates boutique @amorami_mx 💞💞 Not only is the store amazing for its gorgeous selection, but the goal of getting ladies feeling beautiful in their own skin is embedded within the shopowner’s philosophy, and that is something that needs to be represented as much as possible, so I am so happy to support everything she is doing.

[She came to town after 2 years with her dad]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"She wouldn't allow us to enter the town before meeting you" Her dad said
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Well, I have trained her good!" I exclaimed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
[she jump onto me and we hugged for like forever !]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Let's start the party, baby" She said in a turnin' tone
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
[Then what, night long drives, smoking, drinking, beating boys at pools, nightfires, and few backseat kisses]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Time just fly when i am with you, my soul just wants to stay awake when i am with you" I said
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
[She just kept starring at me]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"What?" I asked
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"When you gonna learn how to stop me? When would you tell me not to go and stay in your arms forever?" She asked
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
[Me holding her hands and lookin into her eyes]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I really love you, and i can't be selfish with you, atleast not with you. We both promised to achieve our dreams and i don't want to be the reason holdin' you back. Seeing you successful will make me more happy then you stayin with me and just wasting time, but promise me you will come back to me soon"
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
[Tears rolled out my eyes saying this.]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☆ two hearts beating for each other

I forgot to take pics until many had left, but had a great Friendsgiving this past weekend. Thx to all who came to make our night so special!  Stephen & I are very lucky to have so many wonderful friends in our life!! 😘😘 #friendsgiving #saturdaynight #goodfriends #blessed #writerslife #lifeisgood
When people say put your mind to it, you would thinks it's just an expression used to say think a little harder, or you can do whatever you want to do. Both of those things are true, but true manifestation of your dreams comes from changing the entire perspective on how you move through life. That means showing love rather than hate, doing instead of complaining, and affirming positivity even when you are unsure. Suddenly that energy that you put out just by changing your state of mind will be reciprocated. If you want to change your life, you first have to change how you think.

A recent event got me thinking; do we need more awareness on the issue of mothers and their need to share horror stories with pregnant women?

I can't even count how MANY times I've received unsolicited horror birth/parenting stories since being pregnant. Two days ago, when I was having dinner at a restaurant with my hubby, the waitress shared her c-section story in graphic detail after she saw my belly move from the baby kicking. My husband was also subjected to the horror graphic birth story that was thrown at us without warning.

What the fuck is wrong with people?! Instead of sharing inspiring/uplifting stories with a pregnant woman, so MANY mothers have the need to share their horror stories, then they'll say "Good luck with your birth." WTF?! I now feel a strong need to avoid women who have given birth because many of them seem inconsiderate towards a pregnant woman's well-being. 
Every woman OR man who knows how to use their brain, can imagine and know that giving birth is painful and parenting is hard. A baby is either coming out of your vagina through a natural birth or being pulled out of your surgically cut stomach through a c-section. Both are going to hurt. Caring for a young child who is still dependant on a caregiver 24/7 is going to cause sleep deprivation, it's not rocket science.

Mothers can share their stories with other mothers who've already given birth or talk to a therapist/support group or ANY NON-PREGNANT PERSON if their traumatic birth still requires mental/emotional healing. 
But seriously, mothers could really refrain from constantly sharing their dramatic stories with pregnant women, which is NOT HELPFUL and only serves the storyteller's ego/self-therapy and frustrates the women trying to have a peaceful pregnancy journey. ― Quan N. M
