Tuesday's to Write: On day twenty-one of #nanowrimo ...marooned in a sea of autumnal color I have lost my way ... "I await the day when a GPS is developed for writers---a breed famously unsure where they are and where they are trying to go." (William Zinsser, The Writer Who Stayed) I find slight comfort in the company of Zinsser...it makes me feel less foolish to wander the woods with company...tomorrow I will climb a tree and find my way back to my novel. Have a good writing day y'all! #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #writingmuse #writersblog #imageastext #writersjourney #writerscommunity #whatinspiresyou #whatisawtoday #oregonphotography #oregonnature #nikonphotography #greatoutdoors #natureshots #amazing_shots #autumncolors #bookstagram #booklover #book #authorlife #amwriting #aroomofonesown #amreading #pocket_nature #primeshot #landscapephotography #tree

My Religion is Null by Eli Perez.

True emancipation
fires sweep across this nation
fanatics preach damnation
steal the signs
then say we’re lost
raised fists won’t help the cause
we are bad guests on this planet
Buddha, Christ, prophet Mohammed
try to sew in us good habits
but like dogs who become rabid
we speak with our fangs and claws
that is why this revolution
needs to be about solutions
heart mind soulful evolution
in our made beds we must lie
so free your kindness
shun your blindness
put behind us
history
save the lessons
count your blessings
don’t believe in misery
for all good things that drop below
must first start out above
only one god worth a damn
the one poets call love.

Organizing the walls of my office with photos I've taken of multiple asylums to create a visual setting for my novel 😊☕️📚 💀

I don't have a desk and chair in my writing office, just a bunch of pillows and blankets 😊❤️📚 ☕️

Monday's Writer's Motivation: One of the most iconic filming locations in the world ... On day twenty of #nanowrimo. ...have you hit a wall? Maybe your word count isn't where you wanted it to be? Remember...
"Goonies never say die!" From a script that was motivated by his own childhood reading disability, Spielberg created the fantasy every child dreams of...winning the seemingly impossible goal and conquering your enemies...because you believe in yourself when no one else does...overcoming obstacles in your writing life is no different...remember, ANYTHING is possible...dig deep and remember what you originally wanted from this experience...was it just to be the first to click compile, or was it the focus, structure and discipline of timed writing, or maybe it was the collective support of group writing sprints, or even the feeling of accomplishment you get when a scene you've crafted really, really works...even if it ended up only being a thousand words. Winning isn't just crossing the finish line first, or even the full stop after word 50,000...it is, at least for me, the sense of establishing a writing process that functions well for me...and knowing every year I get to refine it just a little more. Have a #goonies kind of writing day, y'all! #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #writingmuse #writingmotivation #aroomofonesown #amwriting #writerscommunity #writersjourney #writersblog #amreading #booklover #book #bookstagram #whatinspiresyou #whatisawtoday #californiadreaming #oregonnature #nikonphotography #greatoutdoors #natureshots #beach #oregonphotography #authorlife #imageastext

Hello booklovers! Happy Sunday.
I am having in incredible need to write since last Friday, which should be good right? Only problem is that apparently the words are stuck in my mind and just do not want to come out through my finders. I can feel them but I cannot touch them.
Do any of you aspiring authors out there ever fell like this? What do you do?

Sometimes I just wanna speak sunshine

Saturday at the beach: On day eighteen of #nanowrimo ... On my best writing days I begin with a walk to the beach at sunrise because, "There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul." (Victor Hugo)
It is from that interior landscape that my writing emerges...even if some days, that walk is only in my imagination. Have a great writing day, y'all! #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #writingmuse #writingmotivation #aroomofonesown #amwriting #writerscommunity #writersjourney #writersblog #imageastext #amreading #booklover #book #bookstagram #whatisawtoday #whatinspiresyou #nikonphotography #greatoutdoors #natureshots #amazing_shots #sunrise_sunset_aroundtheworld #ig_sunrise #capefearsunrise #ncbrunswickislands #beachesofnorthcarolina #primeshot #pocket_nature #landscapephotography #ncc2017

Poem inspired by dancers. Photo is of @hopegronke , and it was taken by @kloverstudio .

Dancer by Eli Perez.

I’m going to be presumptuous
and say I know what it is
to sail through air
be lifted from the ground
by pointed toes and reaching fingers
when what I really mean is
I envy the freedom you must taste
when your body rattles around
inside the beats and rhythms
of musical notes
whipped into calamitous frenzy
or stirred into smooth lyrical conversation
your face drawing up a story
that only your grand jeté
can tell.

Friday's Meditation Moment: On day seventeen of #nanowrimo ...As "The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn."(Ralph Waldo Emerson) so is the creation of a thousand stories is in the first word. If writing were easy , everyone would do it. Even when you have an amazing concept, a jaw-dropping plot and a cast of intriguing characters...putting them together into a cohesive manuscript sometimes takes a few revisions...take a walk today and marvel at everything you see and remember...everything you see could be the acorn of your next novel. Have a great writing day writing day y'all! #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #writersmotivation #writingmuse #authorlife #amwriting #aroomofonesown #writerscommunity #writersjourney #writersblog #imageastext #amreading #booklover #whatinspiresyou #californiadreaming #book #bookstagram #whatisawtoday #californiaphotography #californianature #natureshots #greatoutdoors #landscapephotography #trees #nikonphotography #amazing_shots #pocket_nature #primeshot

Lemmings by Eli Perez.

Ode to a thing that I once had
size of a lunchbox
flimsy tin
place where I kept toy soldiers in
every child is a victim of sin
transform the ages
walk back the sun
why do savages eat their young
shatter their bones
crack open their skulls
feed on their spirits
until they are numb
march them down paved streets
dusty road towns
over the edge
they tumble and drown.

Thursday's Writers Read: Writers tend to be voracious readers...our palates are mecurial, but discriminating, and if it is reading other writer's work that informs our own, it is our own readers who inspire us some days. "Though I wish I had written a lot more, been bolder with my talent, more forgiving of my weaknesses, I've managed to draw a magic audience of passionate readers into my circle. They come to my signings to tell me stories, their stories. The ones that have hurt them and made their nights long and their lives harder." (Pat Conroy, A Lowcountry Heart: Reflections on a Writing Life.) On this, day sixteen of #nanowrimo think about the idea that as a writer, this may be your meaning and purpose in life... to give voice to that 'magic audience'. Have a great writing day, y'all! #whyiwrite #writersofinstagram #writingmuse #imageastext #writingmotivation #authorlife #amwriting #aroomofonesown #writerscommunity #writersjourney #writersblog #amreading #book #bookstagram #booklover #whatinspiresyou #californiadreaming #californiaphotography #californianature #natureshots #greatoutdoors #nikonphotography #landscapephotography #clouds #amazing_shots #pocket_nature #primeshot
