Happy Monday! Turn-on that faucet of creativity and get ready to flow this week😉
I’ve been writing as long as I can remember. This past year, my writing became a means to an end - a job that has been able to move my freelance career along in ways unimaginable. But, I’m ready to get back to writing for pleasure and creating the book I’ve only ever dreamed about. Today, I started character development of Ramona Beck, a women who only knows pain. #amwriting #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #amwritingromance #writing #books #motivation #morning
Figuring out the best pricing strategy for your writing services isn’t as straightforward as you would love it to be. With several factors to consider – the value on offer, project details, time frame, lifetime value of clients, you really can’t afford clients under-pricing your services or scaring them off. . . . . Negotiating fees with clients is something you’ll have to keep doing for as long as your writing services remain on offer. You really should not put off creating the best pricing strategy. We have tips to guide you. Review competitors’ pricing strategy With the teeming number of available writing service providers, you can rest easy that you are not alone in your ‘pricing journey.’ Established writers have found their best pricing strategies and some are even quite generous enough to share them on request. . . . So, start placing your request and go hunting for the price strategies used by your competitors. A holistic review will that most make use of popular pricing strategies like version pricing, competitive pricing, cost-plus pricing, etc. . . The goal is not to make a mindless imitation of the one that appeals most to you. Rather, what you should take away is better understanding of the real market value of your writing services.

Day 4 of #soulwhispers2018 - DARKNESS- oh sweet soul, there has been darkness this year... I have guided myself through these dark moments by meditation, walks, nature's soul whispers, yoga and writing. At the start of the year the writing was journalling, simple observations and diary entries and later it became poetry... which led me to the dark moments of my life 🖤but in doing this I let go, I released, I learned to move through it and the darkness somewhat lessened 💛I felt a lightness... I posted this quote in February and it is so true for me... it became even more true during the year as more layers were uncovered... writing has been a gift to me this year, it has saved me 🖤#soulwisdom #darkness #lightness #consciousliving #higherconsciousness ##Repost @letterstomysoul with @get_repost ・・・ ...yes the healing journey with writing continues... . . #Writingprompts #reflection #reflectivewriting #amwriting #amediting #prompts #writtenword #lovewriting #writingcommunity #journaling #journalling #creativetime #writingtime #creativewriting #writersofinstagram #writing #writingheals #writetoheal #annefrank #inspirationalquotes #qotd #quoteoftheday #writingquotes
It’s an exciting day in the Wilson household today. I have news to share! When I am not writing novels, my ‘real’ job is running The Glass House. An online magazine I founded 3 years ago. ✨ The Glass House was launched to the public over three years ago and since then we have been fortunate to grow in readership year on year and with growth comes change. ✨ Over the coming days we will be ‘showing you around’ some of our great new features and section; including our new look Book Club, which features dedicated areas such as Author Quick Fire Questions and Feature Articles as well as all of our fabulous in-depth Book Reviews ✨ Our travel section is now much easier to navigate, allowing you to find articles that will inspire you to pack a suitcase and explore the world. ✨ Our Food and Drink section features not only foodie related articles, but also those ‘go to’ recipes to make your life that little bit sweeter. ✨ But enough of my waffling - why not pop over and take a look around. ✨ I am so beyond proud of this project and I can’t wait to feature more fabulous authors on our Book Club. So if you want to be involved...

Have a good Monday! ✏
I know what you're thinking... I need a #Christmas #horror story. Got you covered! https://goo.gl/K1dZb2 #writing #amwriting #podcast #freefiction #creative
When you look at it from this angle...it’s pretty cool to realize how much Anna’s story has grown! I started with a three-page pamphlet, The Legend of Anna Asbury Stone, put out by the DAR many moons ago. Historical fiction is definitely the best of both worlds for me—I love digging in and doing the research that will place the story in the right historical context—but then I get to make stuff up, too! . . . #history #historical #historicalfiction #amwriting #bookish #authorlife #almostthere #editing

BREACH OF CONTRACT We made a promise, to love each other, through good times and the bad; to protect one another, together forever.

Messy faces, messy lives, messy happy. . I'm starting to get bored with the recovery process and the boredom+reality+unrealistic expectations equation is messing with my brain. With the holidays here and all the busy I have yet to do this month, plus the reality that my body needs rest and my children still need me to mother them, I'm left with little brain power. I don't even want to read--that's when we know Christina's not herself, folks! (Wow, did I just talk about myself in the third person?) I was really hoping to use my recovery time (the excuse to sit and neglect my usual mom duties, haha) to speed through my current revision. But... I sent a chapter to my critique partners and they were, um, less than impressed. That single chapter took an embarrassing amount of hours--painstaking, hard, took-everything-i-had hours--and it flopped. And I'm having a hard time forcing the work to happen. So now I feel like everything else I'm doing each day is a waste of time. Anybody else bully themselves when they don't meet their own expectations? . The healing process is weird. So are kids. But I sure love mine. . . . #writer #writerlife #writersofinstagram #amwriting #tryingtowrite #raisingadventurouskids #worthit #recovery

🔊 Always in the back of my mind is the affirmation from Rodgers and Hammerstein: “There is music in you.” Today, perhaps that’s why a nudge came from my spirit to include a mantra to Saraswati when I attempted to find silence today; for those living with mental illness, or just struggling with life itself, there is one piece of advice that stayed with me when I discovered it a few weeks back, “Sing to your mountains” (Sherry White), and so may we sing. For all that we feel and all that we don’t. For all we know and all that is a mystery. For all that is hard. For all that is a gift. For love. Goddess bless... “ From my spirit's gray defeat, From my pulse's flagging beat, From my hopes that turned to sand Sifting through my close-clenched hand, From my own fault's slavery, If I can sing, I still am free. For with my singing I can make A refuge for my spirit's sake, A house of shining words, to be My fragile immortality.” —Sara Teasdale

He fluttered his eyes open as we awoke from the reverie, watching the sea cradling the shrine at front. There was a huge flux of devotees in and out of the sanctum entrance. Rescued. They will all soon be rescued. That is what they want. And they will embrace it today...." . "He closed his eyes, lost, and found, walking towards his destiny. 'I wish I could turn back the clock and bring the wheels of time to a stop.' He dived in the realms of abyss, carrying a blinding, blazing sparkle on the way..." .

#fantasywipdecember Day 10: What is your MCs home like? . . . Lark lives in the Elf Camps, first introduced in Between Worlds. In the Ascension of Lark, they've benn on a mission, so have been nomadic for a few months, mostly sleeping in parks and other calm places. . . I haven't actuallt planned Inola's home yet 🤔 She probably has either a one bedroom apartment, or a large house she shares with other dryads. It may or may not come up. . . Feya currently lives in one of the destroyed buildings of the Dead City. Its run down, exposed, and uncomfortable. Once upon a time she lived in a big estate, but ... well, things happen. . . . None of that is very festive 😅 . . . . #fantasywip #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #yafantasyauthor #yafantasy #amplotting #faeryrealm #bookaesthetic #worldbuilding

I have always had a special connection to animals... especially dogs. . . I know there millions of people who say this, and I am not trying to stand out or say that my connection is more special than any other :) . . Growing up the family pets were always my responsibility, and I cared for them, loved them, and felt sick inside when they were neglected or not treated like the bright, intelligent, and loving beings of energy that they are. . . I always had a sore spot... that by no wish of mine and in situations that I had no say... some of our family pets were discarded for no other reason than they had become a great “inconvenience.” . . I respect and feel so much love for people that treat any type of being in their care with love and kindness. Who see the responsibility they have taken on and nurture and care for those they have connection to and have brought into their lives. 💕💕 . . . . . . . #writersofinstagram #writer #writerscommunity #writers #writerslife #writersofig #writerlife #writersblock #writersnetwork #writerscorner #writergirl #author #authorsofinstagram #authors #authorslife #authorofig #authorsrock #novelist #selfpubishedauthor #amwriting #novelist #novelwritingmonth #writingnovel #writingseries #writingart #writingisart #writingismyfreedom #writingismytherapy #pets #dogs

We are living in a generation where equality is communicated but not widely practiced. The society is slowly moving towards accepting women as leaders. Still, it makes many men uncomfortable to see a woman lead. It is perfectly normal to sit back and let an alpha lead. Any career woman reading this, never regret your role as you are helping our society to move towards equality. And, women need to encourage and be proud of other women who are in a leading role living a life that to me is, “Absolutely fruitful filled with courage.” High five to all those ladies and cheers to the women who do it all. Keep it up and surround yourself with people who value and respect you. People who lift up your soul and encourage you to succeed. . . . . #instagood #inspire #orkimgwomen #women #genderequality #lifelessons #overcome #lifechallenges #strongmind #strongmindset #inspirational #motivation #motivationalquotes #lifecoach #amwriting #author #readersofinstagram #authorquote #writing #writersofinstagram #writercommunity #authorsofig #booknerd #bookworm #bookaddict #instagood #mustreadbook #inspire #dreamer #love #authorlife #inspirational #toughlove
6 out of 8. • I did the math. 6 out of the last 8 Christmases I have either been struggling though early/late pregnancy exhaustion or stumbling through frequent late night baby feedings. And the other two I was navigating toddlerhood, which comes with its own physical demands. It’s as if the weariness of those parenting seasons are as familiar to me at Christmas as the box of well loved ornaments we pull out each year. Christmas is filled with time honored traditions that as we attempt to mark off each year, they stand as a memory book of Christmases past...Most indelible in my mind are the years where I sat bleary eyed staring at the Christmas tree wondering if maybe Santa could just bring the solution for getting a baby to sleep through the night and wrap it up under the tree for me. And so this is where I sit today. • Those frequent years of slogging through December have at the very least taught me something (and I’ll tell you it’s NOT how to get more sleep. But if you have any suggestions send them my way. Actually, don’t. I have tried them all. For now we just wait.) I am learning to manage this feeling of weariness by setting the right intentions. Intentions that work for me and this stage. Intentions that allow me to settle into the season exactly where I am and lean into the parts that work for me, letting the rest stay packed away in the basement. • Today on the blog I shared some of my intentions, some small physical items (like remote controlled lights!) others more mindset driven. NONE of them require guilt, martyrdom or false expectations. So if you struggle with any of that, rest assured I won’t be passing it along. Pop over and read some of my Christmas Intentions for the Weary Soul, and share with me some of yours, big and small. There is room at Christmas for both the tired and the rested.
