all my life
I have been writing about
the sun, moon, stars, love and
it feels good.
but there is
missing in this.
who writes for me?
who writes about the way I love you?
who writes about the way I look at the moon?
who writes about my shyness and mood?
who writes about the heartbreak I gave to someone?
who writes about the love I didn't accept?
A writer in me writes for everyone,
but who writes for me?
who writes about the writer? - a writer who's wish is to be written the way she writes for everyone.

One day you'll understand that what you are going through isn't the final chapter of your life. It may be a part of your book but your story is much more than that. May be you have lost someone you loved or someone who never loved you back. May be you are struggling to believe that you are worthy or someone who carries enough value. But one day you'll realize that these are all part of a bigger plan, the plan for your truest life. You may not feel that way right now but when the right moment comes, you'll know it in your heart.🌸🌸 #poetryofdhiman
This is how I ended the last decade, I had the honour of doing a book reading of #idontwantasisteranymore at a nursery in my home town Birmingham.
If I'm honest it was better than anticipated. I'd expected the children to become fussy and uninterested, as most of them were around 3 years old. However they fully interacted with the story, asking questions and being inquisitive and even shared with me stories
about their own siblings at home, and how they share or not. They also loved the colouring activity and even tried to match the worksheets to the book illustrations.
What I enjoyed most about this experience was that when I introduced myself and my book, their little faces appeared shocked and one child even replied 'hello author'. Right before this book had even been published, one of my goals were to be able to share it with as many children as possible as the characters in the book are Muslim, and I believe its very important for children to be able to see themselves in the books they read.

I haven't been writing much lately. Sick kids threw off my groove and then tooth problems popped up. And then I was worried that I was keeping life interfere with my writing, so guilt plagued me. I'm sure you get the picture. I was spiraling.
I'm determined to have a better week. So I'm starting with some Save the Cat and making a reasonable plan for the week. Taking life into account this time.
Obviously I'm not done reading Save the Cat yet, but does anyone know if it talks about using this for stories with multiple character points of view? Should they each have a 3 act structure of their own? I should probably just go read the book to answer all of my burning questions.
Welcome to our daily accountability check-in. We want to make this simple and encouraging. Each day that you have written ANYTHING towards your creative writing projects, just comment with an emoji that makes you happy (smiley, heart, book, puppy, etc.)! Even if you just sat down and forced out one sentence, put a happy emoji. You tried, and that is amazing! ⠀⠀⠀
If you didn’t write today just drop a sad face, so we all know to offer you encouragement for the next day. We WILL NOT judge you. People have lives outside of writing, and not one of us will write everyday. We just ask you to do this for accountability, and so that we can help you make sure that one day doesn’t turn into two, or three, or more. ⠀⠀⠀
Also, we ask that you give words of encouragement to at least one other person on the post. This can just be a simple “great job!” or “I know you’re gonna crush it tomorrow!” We do this to make sure people don’t feel like they are just putting an emoji down everyday, without anyone noticing their hard work. ⠀⠀⠀

Lead-Africa Writers is a platform to raise more upcoming visionary writers. Here's a feedback from our members.
My poetry and flash fiction goals have officially been reset to zero for 2020... but, actually, make that reset to *one* since I sent a piece out today! Last year, I had an ambitious "failure goal" of receiving 20 rejections. I just wanted to have the courage to attempt to share my work. I ended up with a respectable 15 rejections and 3 publications. I fully intend to hit those 20 rejections this time around in 2020. Feedback from publishers has been extremely helpful and heartening, even when they don't take a piece. Fail harder, y'all! Fail and keep going. (And sometimes, surprise yourself and succeed!)

☆ here's day seven of #celestialtruceprompts : is that felicity or pain?
⁕ ⁕ ⁕
i wanted to write about the contrast between pain and happiness and how they can exist simultaneously, as well as how even being happy for a fleeting moment makes such a big difference when you're hurting compared to falling back into sadness, etc. afterward and how devastating that transition is sometimes.
i chose wind/air as the element because it's something soothing and chaotic at the same time and can represent so many different states of emotion(:
⁕ ⁕ ⁕
i also wanted to say a big thank u to amelie for sharing these prompts! they were super thought-provoking and even more fun to write about. i also wanna say thanks to everyone who decides to read what i write, the support means a whole lot. i'm super grateful for u all. love you so much ♡

They doubted a kid could make it in the NBA and he proved them wrong.
They doubted he could win a championship and he proved them wrong.
They doubted he could make movies and he won an Oscar.
Like all great artists, Kobe Bryant proved the doubters wrong.
