Love this #ACrownOfWishes candle from @wickandfable! It’s called Gauri’s garden (“demon fruit, roses and gulab jamun”). It smells divine & is perfect for one of those rewriting weeks when you know all the words are lambs for the revision slaughter. Sighhh.

In Italy, bought her a fur, look like the wildebeest (rawr)

Impossible to overstate how much I love #TheCruelPrince by @blackholly! It’s the kind of world that makes you shiver, with characters who will make you rage and ache, and a plot like a knife to the heart. So read read read and get transported! Hope you guys are staying warm and safe 💕

New year, same Lestat boots. 🧛‍♀️

Kicking off 2018 with some reflection (ha ha punny). But seriously. This year, the mirror is holding me accountable. There were plenty of moments in 2017 where I couldn’t quite look myself in the eye because at some soul-level I couldn’t hide from certain truths. Things like not spending enough time on self-care; on untangling oneself from people who don’t have your best interests at heart; on dragging around guilt about not having worked hard enough that day. These moments have teeth. They’ll snip at you. Tear off chunks when you’re not looking. So here are my resolutions...I’m resolved to find moments that fill you with luminescence, not moments that let hollowness creep in. I’m resolved to honoring a story and a voice, not a word count. ❤️ I know that sounds kinda dreary, but 2017 was full of such joy too!! Stories that nourished the soul. Settings that sculpted a new landscape of dreams. Moments of such extravagant happiness that my face ached from smiling for hours. And YOU! You amazing readers and friends and community. You inspire me so much & I’m so grateful to all of you for the support and encouragement along the way. Here’s to 2018 💫💫💫

Confession: I’ve done no writing in 3 days despite VERY MUCH NEEDING TO DO SO. Instead, me & the siblings watched What We Do In The Shadows (“I go for a look which I call dead but delicious”), then I lolled upside down reading Tana French’s THE LIKENESS, barked with my dog at a squirrel just so he’d feel like someone is on his side & that’s about it...it’s great. Now it’s back to all those unwritten words that feel terribly huge and wild, but also urgent. Instead of hidden and slow. Take time to refill that creative well! If you’re writing under panic, those words are going to be thin and watery and hold no weight. So forgive yourself if you have to step away for a bit. For me, at least, I think it helps the story more than it hurts. 💕 Hope you guys are having a fabulous holiday season! 💕

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas from our frosty/furious winter bear 💕 Wishing you all love & joy 🎄 #greatpyrenees #greatpyreneesinstagram

Monday was a Pyrrhic victory. Fact: The phrase “pyrrhic victory” comes from King Pyrrhus of Epirus whose army suffered countless fatalities after defeating the Romans in the Battle of Heraclea (280 BC). I do not know if he celebrated with a Negroni, but I️ am. 🌈 #themoreyouknow

I️ adored @katwithsword’s newest novel #AnUnkindnessOfMagicians! Her writing is like a jagged piece of glass. Beautifully brutal, and full of clarity and edges. Highly recommend for a great winter read! (Teddy loved it too. Note the protective paw. “Mine!”)

Ever look at something totally innocuous and make it melodramatic for no reason...that’s my favorite writing exercise. “Snow on the dark queen’s crown. In that second, the world smelled like ghostlight and iron. A prelude of war.” 😈💀😈😱❄️💀👻⚔️⚔️⚔️

First December snow & the Christmas playlists have begun to play ad nauseum.

Just spent 5 minutes trying to think of something profound about writing...I️ got nothing. This is hard. I️ want someone to read this draft and say OMG!! WHAT SPLENDOR AND GENIUS! DONT TOUCH A THING and then I’ll be like “oh no! (gasp) but I️ want to throw my soul on the page and watch it unspool into a mess of adverbs! curse you, genius! (shakes fist).” Sigh.
