Saturday at the beach: On this, day twenty-five of #nanowrimo I have fallen a bit behind on my word count in the last stretch, but I refuse to be discouraged, because in the end I'll have a huge start on YA novel I've been mulling over for a couple of years. But that's what NaNoWriMo is for...breaking out of your rut and exploring the possibilities. "I hope you make mistakes. Because if you're making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing the world. You're doing things you've never done before." (Neil Gaiman) have a great writing day, y'all! #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #writingmuse #writingmotivation #aroomofonesown #amwriting #writersblog #imageastext #writerscommunity #bookstagram #booklover #writersjourney #authorlife #write #whatisawtoday #whatinspiresyou #nikonphotography #ncc2017 #greatoutdoors #primeshot #ncbrunswickislands #beachesofnorthcarolina #amazing_shots #photographersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #pocket_nature #sunrise_sunset_aroundtheworld #ig_sunrise #capefearsunrise

Happy post-Turkey Day from my family (Ben's side) to yours! I'm enjoying the gorgeous fall weather here in the Chicago suburbs - sunny and low 60s! 🍁🍂☀️

What should you spend your time on? What should you write next? What should your next creative project be? ✨SCREW✨ what you “should” do...do what lights you up! What are you most excited to work on next? What story does your entire being want to tell? What are you just dying to create? This doesn’t mean allowing yourself to get distracted by “shiny objects” or make poor priorities, it means EMPOWERING yourself to look within when making a creative choice instead of looking for outside validation or just going with trends and rules. There’s a time and a place to behave. There’s also a time to break out and do what makes you feel wild and alive. That time is NOW.⠀

What was your first great book? The one I remember bewitching me when I was young was #wherethewildthingsare by #mauricesendak! As far as novels go, I loved Time for Andrew: A Ghost Story by Mary Downing Hahn. 📚❤️

Friday's Meditation Moment: On this, day twenty-four of #nanowrimo ...writers are always admonished to 'write what you know'... "Dostoevsky was made by being sent to Siberia. Writers are forged in injustice as a sword is forged." (Ernest Hemingway, Green Hills of Africa)
And yet, many exceptional writers are capable of great empathy, and thus, are able to transcend the adage and produce a masterpiece not from their own experience but that of others. There is no 'one way' to write, except to be true to yourself...you are your own best critic. Have a great writing day, y'all! #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #writingmuse #writersblog #imageastext #writersjourney #bookstagram #booklover #writingmotivation #writerscommunity #authorlife #whatisawtoday #whatinspiresyou #nikonphotography #californiadreaming #californiaphotography #californianature #natureshots #greatoutdoors #landscapephotography #napa #NorthernCalifornia #amazing_shots #pocket_nature #primeshot #napaphotography #writer #authorsofinstagram #photographersofinstagram

Langit terlihat cerah
Dan begitu indah
Namun, tidak seindah realita
Yang sukar diterka
Walau begitu, aku suka
Memandang langit di sana
Lalu menepis gundah
Yang melekat dengan lara
~S.A
. .
The sky looks bright
And so pretty
But, different with reality
So hard to guess it
Even, I like it
To see on the sky
Then, to ward the depressed
Which close the sadness

WEEKLY #WRITEPROMPT
//Reliable//⠀
The ocean is unpredictable and vast but at the same time reliable. The tide comes in and out each day and the waves crash on the shore without fail. Write about an unpredictable time in your life. What are the things that kept you safe in the crashing waves? What were the reliable things or people in your life that helped you navigate that period?
