  • Haha! Used to do this so much a while ago and it feels like it works really great for a few days or weeks because you’re not thinking about your feelings anymore. But ha!! You haven’t dealt with them yet, so soon or later they will come back and you won’t be able to just put them in a dark cage anymore. Sooner or later you’ve got to deal with them in order to heal and be unaffected by them☀️🌈🌻🌸
Have you also tried to do this? Tell me more🍂

  • You’ve said your whole life that you deserved better. That you— wanted— better. You’ve waited. You’ve tried. You’ve worked. You’ve said no. You’ve walked away. You’ve stood tall when people told you ‘it didn’t exist,’ and ‘you were asking for too much.’ You hung on, love. You hung on with a faith that was tested over and over and over. But kept you breathing. Kept you believing. And you did it because you *knew* one day that you’d find it. That thing you were so sure existed. That person. That— love. So I just want to level with you. Because when you get there, you *have* got to get this right. I mean it. When you find it (and you will), you better sit there in that new place and be happy. Grateful. But mostly— confident. Confident that you DO deserve it. That you always did. We convince ourselves of a lot of things. But this one— this one seems to be pretty common to so many of us. And love, it’s ok to want to work to be better. It’s ok to want to be— more— than you are for them. It’s ok to feel a little surprised you finally found them and they actually love you. It’s all ok. It’s all— normal. All I’m saying is— I need you to remember that you have to love yourself, too. A lot. Especially in those moments when your heart is over the moon for someone else. So when you sit with that heart, I don’t want you to let it tell you anything other than— I’m happy. We deserve this. We’ve always deserved this. ♥ // © 2019 LIVE IN THE DETAILS

IRRESISTIBLE DEMISE: After Midnight Series by Carly Spade
.
If you’re looking for the kind of story about a naïve virgin who doesn’t like alcohol, scrunches her nose at cigarettes, or doesn’t believe vampires exist…this isn’t the story for you. Oh, vampires? I know they exist because I had the displeasure of meeting some when I was a kid. Don’t worry, they’re all dead.
.
I'm not a kid anymore. I'm a red-blooded woman with a "glamorous" bartending job at a place called After Midnight, and I thought fangers were but a distant memory. Until he walked in. Tall, pale, and far too handsome for his own undead good. Between the insults tossed back and forth, caught gazes and fleeting touches that made my skin electrify as much as it made it crawl…he came with a warning. An unwanted visitor was on its way to town, and my name had been whispered in passing. With a name like Freya, it was hard to forget.
.
This time around I have friends to help me keep the arrogant vampire at arm’s length…or at least neck’s length. Not to mention any other creepy crawlies who emerge from the night. I may be nocturnal, but I'll be damned if I ever let the night claim me.

  • See that sweet face?
She’s one of two reasons I started my business. 
This has never been about being rich or famous; it has and always will be about defining my own success. For me, that means having a business that’s successful enough that I can spoil the heck out of this kid but not so successful that it eats up my time and energy. 
I want success (who doesn’t?) and wealth (obvi) and the satisfaction that comes with both... but I also want to be able to volunteer at her school and spend the afternoon in a blanket fort and build LEGO robots and turn bunk beds into pirate ships. 
Finding that balance is hard. There’s no guidebook to tell you the magic ratio of work:chore:leisure time so that you can maximize every moment of every day. Mostly you just have to wake up every day and ask yourself:
“What does success look like for me TODAY?” And, if you have a disability, chronic illness, or mental health concerns... sometimes the most successful days are the ones where you stay in pajamas and binge-watch Christmas movies with your kids. 
I’m working on allowing my definition of success to be more flexible. I’m learning to be kinder to myself and I’m crazy grateful for my girls because, even at the end of my absolute WORST days, they lay their heads on my shoulders and say “You are the best mommy ever.” Even though I know it’s not always true, it’s nice to know they think it. 
Love yourself as unconditionally as you love your children. You deserve it ❤️

    Love yourself as unconditionally as you love your children. You deserve it ❤️

  • She said Mama so many times that I began to look around to see who was going to notice her...
.
Her mama finally looked up and said no, she wasn't going to push her on the swing. .
I secretly judged her. Not for too long but you know that initial reaction we have sometimes? It was that.
.
I thought to myself for a few seconds.. Your hair and make up are done, you're wearing jeans (I mean...), and you're at the playground... You can't be that tired... Why would you bring her if you aren't even going to play with her??
.
But then I thought, girl check yourself.
.
Maybe her kid is driving her nuts today and she needs a break.
Maybe she's dealing with some major personal stuff that she hides on the outside.
Maybe maybe maybe...
.
A few minutes later, Mama's friend showed up and she transformed into this overly loving, attentive mom to her little girl.
.
Because I'm a jerk in my mind, I was like huh...I wonder who she's being a mom for... Her friend or her daughter?
.
I'm writing a blog about this right now and how it reminded me of Ananias and Sapphira so keep an eye out for it 😘
.
Question though... What would you have thought if you would have seen this? Or would you have noticed at all?

  • ITS LIVE!!!!!! Tattoos and Prophecies is live today and F R ** on KU!!! [https://books2read.com/u/bPRDJj](https://books2read.com/u/bPRDJj?fbclid=IwAR27kVI7K2_9eQZHoAEfrMprk7rr49Z6OWt7BF2nz27i2tkMu7P29NTqmws)

When the Prophecy is revealed, can I do what it takes?

Not that long ago I knew nothing of this world, I was just a tattoo artist for fucks sake. One that was happy to be left to my own vices with my best friend to keep me company. Fate had a funny way of sinking its teeth into things though didnt it?I learned that the hard way when /I grew a pair of my own, fangs that is.

We had battled The Darkness, but not without a great cost to the clan, and now we needed to find a way to defeat it one and for all. I wasnt sure I was willing to risk those I loved again though.

I needed to learn my powers and fast if I were to protect the amulet and my clan from the darkness for good.

The past and future collide. Damien, Adrien, Aldrich and Dmitry. Will they be able to put aside their differences so we can work together and fulfill the prophecy that has been centuries in the making?

When the time comes, will I be strong enough to be the Queen I need to be, the Queen that the Prophecy demand I be?

  • Used my snow day to make picrews of my characters! It was actually really helpful to visualize them. In order it’s Ashton, Jace, Payton, Connie, Addison, Lily, and Michelle!

  • Typing Tuesday - November 1.2a

I read a lot of articles and tried a lot of things to start my writing habit. Some pieces of advice worked for me, but a lot didn’t. It was just cold facts, hard how-tos, and explicit instructions. But that’s not enough guys.

I learned that you may learn the rules of writing (remember switch it with storytelling), but actually actually not write anything There’s no point in writing (storytelling) if you’re doing it just to do it. There’s no real energy behind it. 
First things first, recognize that you’re a writer (storyteller). And what do writers (“) do? They tell stories. They don’t do it for money (although that would be nice) or for fame (although that could work). They do it because that’s what they’re meant to do. It’s a part of them as much as it’s a part of you and me.
Invitation: take a deep breath in (fill up your tummy like babies do) and then slowly exhale. Do this for several minutes. Then, tell yourself things like this:

I am a writer (storyteller).
I tell stories everyday.
I tell the stories that want to come out.
I am amazing at telling stories. 
And mean them.

  • All that self doubt, all those insecurities. It makes me sad. "I'm not worth it. I'm not enough. If they don't like me, I'm not likable. If they don't love me it must mean that I'm not lovable." Yes, I know what it feels like. I've been through it and still do but I remind myself that not everyone will like and that is okay. You don't need everyone to like you or love you. Sometimes only 1 is suffiecient. Sometimes that 1 it's you and that just can't get any better. So when you stop caring about those who have nothing but negative things to say and those who are not able to love you and when you focus on the ones that love you and support you, you'll see how different you will measure your worth🌻🌸☀🌈

  • It’s day 12 of Nanowrimo! 🌌 how is everybody holding up? I’ve been making my word count everyday, but yesterday I almost didn’t make it 😅 the insecurity has really started to hit. I usually try to be optimistic when it comes to moments like these. Yesterday however, I almost gave up and it took me hours to get any writing done. I’m coming to terms with the fact that not every day I’m going be inspired nor will I feel happy with my writing. That’s just the process. I’m pushing myself to keep going and looking forward to the moment in this process where everything feels right. You can’t feel fulfilled with your story unless you go through that trial and error process. Luckily, with this mindset I was able to reach my word count. I just have to keep reminding myself that I can’t go anywhere with this book unless I give it time to grow 💙🐍

  • Have you ever looked at the sky and seen shapes moving on that endless blue? No. I don’t mean birds. When I was a child and summer’s heat was upon the earth, I quite often lay on my back basking in the sun. I would stare at that big blue and the shapes would float by. Most were creatures. I could spin endless tales about Hops, the giant bunny that outsmarted Eagle and Hawk. Sometimes I also saw bigger shapes. Huge cats, dogs or serpents with wings. Those were careless days. Easy-going and peaceful.⁣
⁣
As I grew up I found myself gazing at the sky less and less. My gaze was firmly fixed towards the objects demanding my attention in that moment. On the nights when the work had been done I would sometimes look at the sky again. On some of those nights I saw shapes again; in the countless lights that could be connected by lines if one wished hard enough.⁣
⁣
One day, as I was travelling through the mountains I saw a huge shape in the earth. I smiled as I envisioned a long bony tail growing from a firm and sturdy spine. Limbs were attached to it and dug deep into the ground. I could see it. How the entire mountain range in the distance could be a huge dragon. I smiled.⁣
⁣
Then, a loud rumbling shook the very earth. It reverberated in my very bones as I was forced to my knees. ⁣
⁣
Tremors shook my frame, which was not so strange, all things considered. But at the same time, I felt this warmth suffusing my entire being. It started somewhere in my chest and spread quickly. To my back where it traversed my spine and entered my limbs. It transferred to my throat and face. When the shaking stopped I lifted a hand to my wet cheeks. Cheeks that stood taut as my mouth was split as wide as it had ever been.⁣
⁣
There are miraculous wonders in the world. Do you have an open heart and open mind? Then you might be one of the blessed few to witness them.⁣

  • This morning, someone contacted me to write a 50k word book for him in 15 days. He offered to pay me 1.2 naira per word.
.
I immediately turned him down. He asked how much I'd charge and I told him. Then he entered blackmail mode.
.
I have experienced this scenario all too well, and yet, no matter how frequently it happens to freelance writers, you never quite get used to it.
.
So, I've come up with a shortlist of the most annoying things you could ever say to a content writer for hire.
.
Swipe to view, and let's compare notes; which of these statements do you hate the most? Which other ones have you heard that made you want to yank your hair out?
