Random writing challenge: throw some strawberries at your characters. Literally. Don't just mention strawberries. Have someone throw strawberries. Or, throw strawberries at your computer screen because your characters won't do what you've told them to do. Any of these options fulfill the challenge.

Her;

The sonorous townhouse, violet view's & blossom blues'.
About to fall into despair of infitude.
Telescopic storm wanders above & below –
Searching mobilized root's below,
and above the vision of holding on to forever.
In between the floor and shilling cast as ‘silver’.
Horizons too reprobates colours of adieu.
Leaving the solitary hour of finest you –
And me – deluded, in despair of current move.
Ceaselessly borne back towards you.

The wickedest thing i have done is having loved someone when i knew they were beyond the scope of where the lines of my fate met.
The wickedest thing was to pursue a star swaying away in the abandoned sky like a kite cut loose, as i ran like a child -bare feet jumping accross puddles.

The wickedest thing was to hold onto the thin wisps of light as darkness engulfed me beyond sins.

The wickedest thing was being vulnerable to love, to grow distraught by hate.

The wickedest thing was to sing along the melancholic melody of shallow affection.

The wickedest thing was to fall in love for someone who was in the process of unloving you. **************************************

(English below) 🇩🇪 Guten Abend ❤️ wie wichtig ist euch Dankbarkeit und eine positive Lebenseinstellung? Ich muss sagen, seitdem ich dankbarer geworden bin, habe ich eine viel positivere Lebenseinstellung. Früher war ich schnell gestresst und schlecht drauf, wenn etwas nicht so lief, es hat richtig an mir genagt. Aber heute (Dank meinem Glauben und meinem Sohn) stoppe ich, besinne mich und denke an die Sachen, die ich habe: ein Dach über dem Kopf, einen vollen Kühlschrank, sauberes Trinkwasser, Gesundheit, all die Dinge, die für uns selbstverständlich sind. Ich mache mir täglich bewusst, dass ich dankbar für all diese Dinge sein kann, für andere sind sie nämlich nicht selbstverständlich. Es ist wichtig auch in schweren Zeiten Dankbarkeit zu empfinden, das ist natürlich leichter gesagt, als getan, aber ich finde, dass es hilft optimistisch zu bleiben. Denkt heute Mal über all die Sachen nach, die ihr habt, anstatt über die, die ihr nicht habt und sagt einfach: "Danke". In diesem Sinne wünsche ich euch einen bezaubernden Abend ❤️

🇬🇧 Good evening ❤️ how important is "being thankful and positive in life" for you? Since I am more thankful in life, I gained a lot of positivity. I used to be very mad, when something didn't work out. Today, I stop, breathe and think about the things I have (thanks to my religion and my son) : I got a home, food in my fridge, clean water to drink, things we take for granted every day. I try to be thankful every day for these things. Some people are not as lucky ... It's also important to be thankful in tough times, not easy, I know, but I believe, that it gives you a Lot of positivity and optimism. Today, think about all the things you have, instead of the things you don't own and just say "Thank you". Have a beautiful evening ❤️

Today’s coffee break: went to lunch at @jengchirestaurant with some of the team from @vachtra ‘s office. They were nice enough to let me stop next door and get a caramel sea salt coffee from @85cbakerycafe after. It always strikes me as interesting how in many ways writing is similar to engineering, especially the process where these guys have to make sure everything works together and you don’t wind up with a 12 foot retaining wall giving cars on the street a view into someone’s second story window, or the grading/drainage on one lot leading to a brand new pond for the guy three lots down. The more planning involved, the less you have to deal with these things mid-project. And the same is true with novels. The implications of a character or plot thread you introduce can indeed turn into a “pond” several chapters—or even books—later. Which can turn out to be either good or bad, but you have to take it into account .... #coffee #coffeebreak #writinglife #amwriting #authorsofinstagram

It's funny this quote should find me today, when I've been telling myself this exact thing all week.

The recent queries I've been sending, required no more than two chapters of work, but the one I'm working on at the moment asks for three.

Even though I recently did a big edit a couple months ago, I couldn't help myself checking over chapter three before sending it off...guess what I'm doing now?

Not just editing, I am basically rewriting chapter 3.

It's so funny because I could have read it a thousand times after the last edit, and not have seen what I do this time, but then I guess, that's just the nature of the beast.

A good manuscript must simmer like a slow cooked stew if you want all that goodness to come out from the bones.

I know there will come a point where I must just leave it be. But it's not yet...not by a mile apparently.

And now that I've seen it (you guessed it) I won't be able to resist re-editing the entire thing again.

Oddly, I'm excited by this strange and wonderful form of torture.

QOTD: At what point do you just leave you manuscript be? (how many self-edits?)
