// well, #realmmakers2018 is officially over. it was filled with “soul food,” giggles, inspiration, meeting Internet friends, and the kind of joy similar to eating a perfect slice of pizza. it almost didn’t feel like real life—just an amazing dream—and it’s weird returning to the hustle of work and the daily routine. . to those of you that I met at the conference: you are all so special and I cannot wait to see what you do with your gift of words. *hugs* . and to those who didn’t get to go: I’m sorry it didn’t work out, and I desperately hope that our paths will cross at a future conference so we can squeal about alllll the writing and bookish things. :D
// books, movies, music, paintings, poetry, dance, photography + so much more — there are countless artists out there who help add expression and wonder to this life. please never stop creating, okay? . (also ahem twenty one pilots is back and it’s so ridiculously exciting to finally hear new music from my favorite band AHHH !!)
// because sometimes you just have to reread an old favorite 💛 . . . . . #bookstagram #amreading #bookworm #booklove #bookishphotography #currentlyreading #bookcover #instabook #reader #shannonhale #princessacademy #booknerd
// the lovely @emmamarie_25 and I have been meeting and critiquing each other’s books since the new year, and we finally finished! we read “the end” of each other’s novels. :,) it’s been a growing experience to have someone read your work and then tear it to pieces, but so encouraging for them to also acknowledge the potential it has. . I’m oddly sad to be done with this process, but now there’s a whole round of edits waiting for me with Draft Four. (like, pages and PAGES of problems to be fixed, yikes) thank goodness #CampNaNoWriMo approaches. 😅 . . . #amwriting #writerslife #amediting #writersofinstagram #writerscorner #writersofig #writewritewrite
// these happy-looking daises accurately resemble my current mood because I graduated high school yesterday! now my mornings can be spent working hard on writing/editing and I’m SO pumped. . also, I’m (finally) seeing Black Panther tonight and I don’t there there could be a better way to celebrate, hehe. I’ve seen nothing but good things about it!
