🌹Hey everyone! How is life? I hope you guys are remembering to let your imagination soar! I’ve been lacking in my posts since I am in the midst of preparing my novel for publishing and working with my great editors. Exciting isn’t it??!! 🌹
A few days ago. My friend @olivia.j.wordshaker made an interesting story about having a well received first novel and not being able to smoothly complete a draft of the second novel without fearing the worst. Honestly, I believe her book was one of the best YA novels ever, but I firmly believe that it’s impossible for that book to be her best work ever. As artists, our lives are always works in progress. That means, if you write a book, in no way will it match your skill level 10 years in the future. And in the rare instance your first novel is better than your second, it means you have a problem of conceitedness. Since the lack of growth in an individual means your are self centered. Now, Olivia doesn’t have this problem of believing she better than others, she’s just experience the fears of lacking foresight...but there are many other authors like her, that take 1000 followers wayyy too seriously. They produce book after book on createspace believing they are on par with Ransom Riggs, C.S. Lewis or even John Green. In reality, they are just teens with god complexes and it’s very unsettling. So please, don’t fall into the trap of worshiping your work. So please, see Olivia as a good example. She seeks help when she needs it, and fears the future. That my friends is the best way to stay humble and creative. 🌹
Hey guys, if you like deep posts like this LMK. Stay posted since I’m going to add bookish content to YouTube!!

“If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize we were alone? I had always known the sky was full of mysteries—but not until now had I realized how full of them the earth was.”
—Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

I’ve just written a very cool (well in my opinion lol) scene in my book! And I’m actually writing quite a bit, so I’m excited.
And I have not one, but TWO essays to do for my history class—so I’m even MORE excited! 😁😐
I haven’t been able to focus on my writing a lot because I’ve been too busy focusing on the wrong things. The wrong people. The wrong situations. Things that don’t matter and distract me from getting where I actually want to be in life—college is one of these distractions. Lol jk. But I am slowly but surely realizing that if I allow these things/people to crowd my thoughts, then I’ll be stuck here while the world around me has moved. And that’s never been the kind of person I am. Sometimes in life we realize we are not where we want to be yet, and it sort of discourages us. But that doesn’t mean we should just drop all the progress it’s taken us to get to where we are right now. Right now is good. Right now is fine.
Just have to keep working to get to where we ACTUALLY want to be, and not let things get to us. And for now, be content with what is right now.

(I’ve seen a few people posting emotional posts but this is NOT because of that lol, I don’t even think this post is that emotional. I’m not trying to go along with this as if it’s some trend. I really don’t care about that. I just *genuinely* felt the need to say all that because it’s how I’ve been feeling for days and even if nobody actually reads it, I’ve still got it off my mind.)

EDITS FOR #PORCHSWINGGIRL NUMBER TWO ARE COMING TO ME TODAYYYYYYY!!
.
*cue much fanfare and nervous excitement *
.
And, while my edits are coming in today, I won’t be around to work on them. Because *I* will be in Portland, shopping and eating cheesecake and watching my favorite band perform live 🤩🤩🤩
.
(Yes, this is the same band I’ve already seen play three times before. Yes I’m still excited. Prepare yourselves for a flood of Insta-Story thrilldom 😉)
.
But for right now, let’s talk books and writing and WRITERS, because this is #writeupseptember Day Three!
.
Today I’m giving you a sneak peek of...moi! In my natural, writerly habitat. What is this habitat?
.
My exact location can vary, but I consider these few things to be essential for an optimal writing experience:
🍂Decaf tea (spiced or chai, please) with a generous spoonful of brown sugar 🍂A cozy blanket/sweater/all of the above 🍂My MacBook (it’s my first one and I’m minorly obsessed with it)
🍂Beautiful music (either sweeping, inspirational instrumentals or from said favorite band...)
🍂GOOD SMELLS. Especially coffee/chocolate/lavender/pretzel/vanilla/leather-y ones 😍😍😍
.
But enough about me! Writer friends, I want to hear from you: where would you rather work—at a bustling coffee shop or a quiet cabin in the woods?
.
In fact, let’s keep it going! Answer my this-or-that question, then drop one of your own in the comments 😁 Let’s have some fun!

🌺Happy Tuesday, Bookdragons!📚 So, I've been somewhat productive today, for a change. Lately, I haven't been, but today I did some thought dumping for my outline and tomorrow I'm planning to start arranging things in order so editing will be a lot easier, I hope. Also. I got some beta reading done, so I'm proud of myself😁❤️

QOTD: what is your favorite fall activity? My favorite fall activity has to be hanging out with my friends in the woods, because we do that quite a lot, but not in the summer😂
🌺
#septlitwrit MC's favorite fall activity. Well, answering for Bash, my CoA MC, would be difficult since he doesn't have any friends. So. And SaA takes place in summer, so...
🌺
#instawrimo Cast a secondary character. In CoA, a secondary character that I love is Kalyse Edin. She's the leader of the community and I absolutely love her. She's so intimidating and fierce. In SaA, a secondary character would be Avery. She's really sarcastic and sassy and doesn't get along well with my other characters, but I love her anyway💕
