Hard to believe I’m nearly two weeks into #nanowrimo2019 ! Doesn’t feel like it. It feels like I am just getting started. Which explains why I’m over 10,000 words behind 😂😅
-
It also explains why I titled this Hovering forward. I feel like I am moving slowly forward, not speeding ahead, not stopping,  just hovering.
-
🎵 I listened to a few Piano Concertos by the Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich which really got me in the zone✍️🔥

Josh visited Jagoreth for the first time today but didn’t arrive at the town very smoothly. He met a raven-haired woman who questioned what he is doing there. Will she appear more in this book or just be a kind stranger showing him the good places to eat around town? -

📝5 Tips to Overcome Writer’s Block📝 
When you’re writing for a living AND for a hobby, it’s easy for the creative spark to fizzle out⚡️But there are some things that can help get the words flowing and the keys typing once again! Hit the link in my bio to find out more☝🏼
Feeing very burnt out today after my intense 3000 words miracle. Only wrote 500 words so I guess Il do better tomorrow. On the plus side I came up with a name for a new town Josh will visit in this book. Jagoreth

When trying to write snappy headlines, taglines, and titles remember that clever ideas tend to come quickly. 💡
.
I always give myself fifteen minutes to think of something clever, catchy, or (hopefully) funny. If the timer is up I just focus on writing the most succinct and descriptive thing possible and stop trying too hard at wordplay which can be distracting and time consuming. Not to mention demoralising if you're still staring at a blank page two hours later... ⌚

The Block…or Blind Spot
.
Have you ever been in the middle of a project, only to lose your train of thought? Perhaps you’ve stared at a blank computer screen for far too long?
.
There are many articles about writer’s block. It happens to every writer. At least, I think it does. There could be a mystical person somewhere in the world, who never had to experience the frustration & irritation. If there is, I hope to meet them one day. It would be a pleasure, and beneficial, to find out their secrets to smooth, unencumbered writing. But until then…
.
How do you deal with the blank spot in your mind? Or is it more that your head is unfocused & you’re not able to clear out the fog? Perhaps instead, your thoughts wander?
.
One of the things I noticed early on in my writing journey...

🇬🇧⬇️ Comment avance le nanowrimo ?
.
Pour ma part j'ai eu un très bon début de semaine puis la catastrophe totale 😱 Comme je n'ai pas préparé de plan à l'avance je suis obligée de m'arrêter souvent pour réfléchir à la suite.
Heureusement j'ai déjà imaginé un bon nombre de scènes mais je ne sais pas trop dans quel ordre les enchaîner 😅
.
Et vous, vous écrivez avec ou sans plan ? 🤔
.
____________
How is nano going?
.
My week had a very good start but ended in complete disaster 😱 Since I didn't make a thourough outline, I need to stop quite often just to figure out what happens next.
Fortunately, I already have a lot of scenes in mind but I'm not sure about their order yet.😅
.
And you, do you preferto outline beforehand or not? 🤔

Suddenly it is hot here in Brisbane and I find it hard to concentrate on writing. I just want to go to the beach and dive into something cool and fun. Are you a beach reader? What are you up to today?

Are you tackling your word count for @nanowrimo this month? 💻🖊⁠
⁠
If so, my best advice is to stay the course and don’t buy into the myth of writer’s block. I talked about the pervasive idea that writers get “blocked” on last week’s episode of Five Things Friday (check my IGTV feed if you haven’t already seen it). I don’t believe in writer’s block and I don’t think you should either. The word “block” has such a negative connotation. There’s nothing you can do to shut down your creative energy faster than tell yourself that you’re blocked. ⁠
⁠
Instead, shift your semantics. Writing a novel is a job, so treat your writing as you would any other profession. Doctors don’t get blocked. Teachers don’t get blocked. Bakers don’t get blocked. Do they have bad days, lesson plans that go awry, or kitchen mishaps? Of course! But they work through those challenges. Just as you can write your way through any challenges. Some days hitting your word count might seem like a breeze. Other days you might find yourself slogging away on your keyboard for hours upon hours. But, if you make the commitment to yourself and to your work in progress to show up and write every day (whether you’re in the zone or not), you will be amazed at how quickly those words begin to add up and start to take the shape of a novel. ⁠
⁠
So onward with your word count and let’s all agree to kill the myth of writer’s block!⁠

It’s been one whole week of #nanowrimo2019 and I’m feeling the pressure but persevering. I’ve been doing @kwantum_kaley’s Color me Conscious course for a month now and it’s been really helpful and inspiring 🌈 I feel so light and carefree now like all the irrational and unhelpful worry and doubt I used to have has slowly fallen away. I was really moved by her latest video and in the course I learnt a lot about how we are all connected and  how everything is energy and I really feel that now. It’s not just a concept anymore. In fact a lot of self-help and motivation tips are sinking further down into my subconscious now 😍. I’m glad Kaley kept (STRONGLY 😛) encouraging us to meditate. I haven’t done it nowhere near consistently enough and it’s already helping me feel calmer and more content with where I am in my life☺️ Comment “☀️” if you want Sikh to watch over you during the day and “🌙” if you want her to help you sleep well 😴

You GUYS! It's a November MIRACLE! Exactly 1 year ago I hit a snag in my story and couldn't quite wiggle free. Today I finally wrote my way out. I can't convey to you how FREE I feel! Ahhhhh!!!!!! Now to figure out how to not get stuck for a YEAR the next time writer's block strikes.

What are some flaws your MC has? .

Good Morning, Starlings! ☀️ .

Day six for #fantasywipnovember19 asks for us to describe the plot of our book badly. 😏 .

A group of nobodies are attacked over and over leading to a massive number of dead people. A farm girl, a known gold digger, is their only hope at getting justice. Forced to turn herself into the government she uses the her skills to help others while climbing the social ladder herself with a trusted ghost sidekick. 👸👻 .

Hoping to finish my outline today and to get started on my draft! 😘

Lately I’ve been having a wobble about my writing for my blog as I thought what I had been writing wasn’t good enough..... Then I received this 🙌

What is your favorite spot on your fictional map?🗺 .

Good morning, Starlings! ☀️ .

For the third prompt in the #fantasywipnovember19 , we are to introduce the setting of our novel. 🏞🏡🏙 .

The city dome of Losydium is the setting of my first three books. A city made for the elite, the working bees, and the poorest farmers under one collective name. The break down of the city is: .

Outermost= farms, poorest of the poor, small towns, and technology set back to the 1800's in our world. 👨‍🌾👩‍🌾
Inner Circle= factories, suburbs, and cubical work life. You always have someone to answer to, but at least you don't have to worry about pesky farm animals and droughts. 👩‍💼👨‍💼
Innermost= the celebrities, CEOs, and those just born there populate the very center of the city. There is nothing but the big business of steering those in the lower sections of the city as you wish. 👨‍🎤👩‍🎤 .

Today was more productive than yesterday but it didn’t seem to be due to the huge expectations I put on myself after seeing the intense productivity of other #nanowrimo2019 writers over the last few days. Still 1100 words is 10x what I did on Day 1. Check my story/highlights for the meditation/music I listened to that made my productivity double ✨Today I wrote about Josh’s uncle Leo talking to a Pili-wig called Constam. A Pili-wig is a creature I made up which is similar to a gnome but it wears a shell around its body like a hermit crab 🐚 I also wrote about Josh visiting the Sky city of Estilon ⛰ ⛈ 🌬 Swipe through to the end for flying mages and magic vines 🦅 🌱

Here is the pug of updates. When you see an image of a pug here, it’s safe to assume it’s an update of where I’m at.
UPDATE:
For the past two days I’ve spent a long ass time on my computer upstairs trying to find things that sound nice on muse score. I have a basic understanding of what I want but as I am really inexperienced with notation, I can’t get it right. I’ve found the best way for me to compose is by sitting down and playing with notes.

I’m still trying to decide if I want “Take back the past (working title)” to be a blues song or a more classical piece. I’m trying to find a good sound for Rock ‘n’ roll fever. Again going for a bluesy, jazzy style with it but seeing as I know nothing about that music, it’s not going well. Everyone’s Gotta Start Somewhere is good and I’m happy enough with that but its a bit too repetitive so I need to fix that.
Friday night on the Town is going well. Trying to get that fluently and I still have to learn the piano solo. 
Those are my four songs that I’m going to play to people. If they like it, I finish the rest. If they like those then I’ll maybe make an album. If they don’t like them then I’ll have to try to find a different sound. To quote my own song, “I swear I’ll keep on trying to get that dream I want” Dan Sutton 2k19. 
Thats where I’m at.
In summary:
Everyone’s Gotta Start Somewhere needs tweaking
Not sure how I want “Take back the past (working title)” to sound
Friday night on the Town is challenging and I still have to learn to play it
Rock ‘n’ Roll fever is hard cause I’ve never written rock ‘n’ roll or blues

The writer’s dreaded blank page. That has never been my weakness, but scene and action description—now that keeps me up at night.

Inspiring books that arrived today! Which one will prove most useful in my next creative writing workshop? 
It might not be the one that I thought, purely from the practicality of which I'll get through first - we're already one chapter in and my daughter is entranced with the characters of Badger, Fox and Tawny Owl 😄

Anytime - Anywhere

It has been a while since I was last active.  To be honest, I had a phase in which I could write absolutely nothing.  I sat in front of my laptop and saw a white screen in front of me.  My fingers glided over the keyboard.  But every single word I typed just did not fit. It did not fit!! I was frustrated. I did not write one day.  Thought, hey that's okay.  Did not write two days, thought tomorrow I write again.  And suddenly weeks and even months passed without noticing.

So how did I get out of this phase?  Our 1 year old son @jonydiyor loves to draw with pens.  They way he is holding it, fascinates me. He is focused and ambitioned. One day my husband asked me when I wrote the last time. I did not remember anymore.  And he added: then Jony will write your book for you.  This comment changed everything in me.  It is MY dream to write a book.  And I want to live out this dream. (Of course I'm happy too if my lovely son has the same dream 😇) Now I write again with new energy and optimism to write.  And you see, my writer's block is over.😊😍🌈

Have you ever invested so much time into something, only to have regrets later on because of how things just didn’t work out as you planned? If so, then you’re not alone.
➖
Now as crazy as this may sound, God had His regrets too. After He spent time creating mankind, and after Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, mankind all fell away into sin. Things even got so bad to the point where every single person on earth became wicked, and rebellious. This grieved God, and He regretted that He made mankind on the earth(see Genesis 6:6-7). He then decided to flood the earth and destroy all His creation(except for Noah and his family).
➖
After that, God made a covenant with man to never have the flood waters come again to destroy them(the true meaning of the rainbow). He then went on to multiply His creation, mankind, on the earth again through Noah’s family. He moved on from His regret, and continued His creation.
➖
Therefore, it’s not a bad thing to regret past decisions that you’ve made, as long as you move forward from there. Don’t allow yourself to become a prisoner of your regrets, move forward. God clearly moved on from His regret, and by His strength, you can too! God bless 🙏🏾🙏🏾.
One strategy I use to fight writer's block is a photo inspiration box. I bought a few photography books from Gail Borden Public Library sale, cut the photos and placed them inside a photo box. Whenever I am in a rut, I can pull out an image from the box and be inspired by the visual.  What are you strategies for fighting writer's block?

Are there any spooky places in your WIP? .

Good Morning, Starlings! 🧙‍♀️ .

Where Arianna grew up, there is this old ruins that resemble a castle over the river. She isn't afraid of it like all the others are, bit little does she know that the castle is currently occupied... 😉 .

There is also a section of the city that was wiped out. It is a place her mentor Lunn dreads going through with her. Not a single person was left alive in that section, as far as we know. But the street lights still go on and music still plays on their air waves like other sections, but people refuse to live there for health reasons and the memory. 😨 . ===Picture from Pintrest=== #bookwriters

Just procrastinating from speech writing for a few quick many seconds. Could selfie taking in the toolshed provide the Divine inspiration I need to combat my writer's block? Stay tuned. #writersblockbegone #collegelife #nolife #funfilledweekend #timeofmylife #andioweitalltoyouuuu
Love this book. But what I need is never in there.

For instance, how do you describe that thing when someone thinks something is odd/funny and makes that sorta sharp 'huh' sound, but maybe out of their nose, and they're totally not saying 'huh'? #writersproblems #cantfindthewords #writenoweditlater
Five handwritten attempts and six crochet rows later, I'm still no closer to a decent ending. But damn if this pattern isn't nice and easy!
