Hey y'all 🖐

There's always these moments in life when you want something that someone else has. The fancy home, the huge group of friends.
My life hasn't always gone the way I wanted it to. I was supposed to enlist. I was supposed to finish college. I was supposed to be the best at whatever I did. But that's not how it turned out.
And I'm not mad, or angry about the cards I've been handed. Because adapting is a part of life. It's a part of this millennium, and it'll be a part of the next.
So let go of the hate. Let go of the envy. And go live for yourself and the amazing people around you. Because if you don't, you'll never learn what you're capable of becoming.

I was meaning to write this earlier before I backed my phone up. That way I could write a ton of new stuff to post later. I ended up doing it all at once so prepare your little eyes to read :) #photography #writersofinsta #writerscommunity #writingpromptswithpurpose #writersofinstagram #aspiringwriter #quotes #quotegalore #quotesforlife #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #writersofinsta #writingprompts #writers #writing #writingtoheal #writingtosurvive #writingtips #writingtoinspire

Honored to have received the Sewanee Book Award for Excellence in Writing, and excited to start a summer of drafting with my first novel scheduled for this time next year!

Looking back, it amazes me how much my perfectionism has gotten in the way of my progress. I didn't dare write unless I felt like what I was going to write would turn out perfectly (and it never did anyway 😂). I would get so stuck just because I was afraid to write something bad. You'd think that I thought every word was etched in stone for eternity. The beauty of a word processor (and an eraser!) is that you can rewrite until your heart's content. The first draft is supposed to be messy anyway.

How are your stories coming? What stage are you in now? Rough draft, first edits, total rewrite? I'm in the rough draft stage and am constantly needing to remind myself that editing is a thing 😅

Here is how I do my #poetry #writing and posts. I #write my #poems out by hand, then type them up using the Typorama app.

My project for the next few weeks. #goals

Once upon a time, I had a love/hate relationship with writing. I mean, I always wanted to be a writer (since I was 8), but the actual writing part got me every time. I was always too busy, too tired, too distracted, too...you get the idea. .
Then one day things started to change. It began with a writing contest and then I read a book and before I knew it things were snowballing. I started to feel different about writing. It began to feel like self care instead of a chore. It began to feel fun again. It began to feel like a calling that I wanted to invest in.
.
When I started Ink & Grace, almost every writer I came in contact with said they experienced the same thing. The lack of motivation, the struggle to write even though the they wanted to be a writer, the lack of time. That's why I decided to create the course Build Your Writing Life: to share the secrets I learned to building a writing life that you LOVE. .
If you want in, click the link in bio (or go here:http://eepurl.com/dxvdZ1) to get on the interest list. The first 20 people to sign up for the course get a HUGE discount -- and everyone on the interest list gets access to sign up for the course 48 hours before everyone else. The course runs August 1st -- August 31st and will include live support from myself. I can't wait to share this with you guys!! .

“Mine is not an obedient writing. I think that literature as any art has to be irreverent.” -Reinaldo Arenas


“Sometimes, when the world is falling apart around you, all that’s left to do is dance, right?”


I adored reading this little gem a few years ago. The perplexity of the Wood, the secrets her parents are harboring, and Prue’s search for her missing brother made for an intriguing book. I like this series, also I liked visiting Oregon, which is where this series is set. The illustrations are gorgeous as well.

Mine is Ravenclaw, but before I took the Pottermore quiz, I thought of myself more as someone in Slytherin. 🤷🏻‍♂️🐍But Ravenclaw is great too.😆🦅💙
