What can you do when something's been stolen from you? What can you do when the actions of others seemingly remove every opportunity to fulfill your destiny? How do you define yourself? Is the idea of defining oneself even real? Because I understand the importance of defining ourselves as separate from our traumas but can we ever be truly separate from our traumas? Are we kidding ourselves? Are we conjuring hope at the cost of the truth? It's one thing to know that we are not in control in order to what, manage expectations? If we truly only have one life then shouldn't we be free to expect greatness from the world, to expect the vastness of life to make itself known to us? Will these very questions be my undoing? In seeking the answers to these questions, am I missing the answers to the questions that actually matter? I want positivity to be the lens in which I see life through, but there's something inside of me that can't because it just feels like one big lie, like I cease to be me.

ROYALTY
⁣
Have you guys SEEN this candle? I am soooo freaking happy with it. I’d like to thank @wickstockcandleco again for this amazing candle depicting my main character in my new project! It smells AMAZING! ⁣
⁣
Do any of you like to read about royalty? Because I sure do. I love to write about royalty too, as is present in my new project. I have various different types of monarchies and other forms of government in my new project. I have governments where religion plays an important role in choosing a monarch, I have your typical hereditary monarchies, I have kingdoms that are ruled by a government of High Lords, and I even have a kingdom ruled by a President. Across the sea I also have a great empire, ruled by a fearsome emperor who sets his children against each other to see who is the strongest to take his place.
⁣
Some of my favourite things is reading about royalty. What are some of your favourite books with royalty? ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣

I originally wrote this about metal people, but figured with everything going on in my country (the US) right now, I was thinking it could apply to all groups who have been discriminated against or profiled in some way. I hope all marginalized or disenfranchised folks could find resonance with this in some way, even if it’s only just one line or two. I don’t just limit this to being about metal people.. it’s for anyone who wants it. #wordporn #writersofinstagram #writersofig #poem #poems #poemsofinstagram #poemsofig #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poetry #aspiringwriter #aspiringpoet #writerslife #writerscommunity #wordsfromtheheart #poetrytime #poetryporn #spilledink #lyrics #love #lust #heartbreak #metal #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #depression #addiction #survivor #travel #lovepoem #rocknroll

“When the practice of love invites us to enter a place of potential bliss that is at the same time a place of critical awakening and pain, many of us turn our backs on love.” Do the work that love demands. — bell hooks ⁣
⁣
Awakening is uncomfortable, change can be painful, but we cannot turn our backs on love to stay asleep in our cocoons of insulation and inaction. ⁣
⁣
We must show up in the world for the sake of love and take loving action. It’s not enough to say the words, we have to show it, do it, be it. ⁣
⁣
I highly recommend reading bell hooks, she’s an amazing writer, teacher, social activist, and philosopher. Aka Gloria Jean Watkins 💕✊🏾⁣

#blacklivesmatter #blackandwhite #racism 
Why do we call them black or white? Why do we categorise them? Why did we tag the 'Black' word with them? 
Colour is not life but yes, there are colours in lives. The colour of the skin should not be the adjective of lives.
No adjectives as such should be tagged, with humankind, that promotes racism.

‘We’

We had a quarrel that day. One day extended to the other and it went on for a long while. For the first time, maybe, we missed each other. My eyes were sore from not seeing you and I longed to hear your voice on the other side of the call. Why did we fight at all? I could've apologized, so could you but it was too long now. Most nights, sleep abandoned me cause I missed you in my arms; there were no more daydreams of you.
That night we met at a party and it was as if love fell on my eyes again. You looked like a fresh blossom of red lovely roses and I couldn't take my eyes off. Yet, the 10-yard walk upto you felt the longest in the world; like a fear, a shame and an ego held me back. I saw that we both talked to everyone in the room but we constantly avoided 'us'. The sound of your laughter reached me like the tempest of the raging sea. We locked our eyes occasionally but who would take the first step forward? I was courageless.
As I whiled around, my phone beeped. It was your message- a photo attachment of you smiling; the text read, 'this is all you need'. I turned around and you were right there. I stared into all those stars in your eyes and it was like I had found a lost world. I melted away in the light of your face and the fragrance of your being. 
That night when you danced in my arms, I knew the person who fit perfectly into me and when we kissed, I knew what I had long missed. Sleep found me the happiest man when we lay in each other's arms.
I knew- you and I, we were always meant to be.
Had you not come back...

THE LAST CRESCENT MOON
❝Taking him past all of the other people, Mother set him down in the small room which they both shared. It was cramped, confined - with only enough room for a small table on the floor, a half a dozen books stacked in a tower, and a single bed - but it was all he had ever known and he called it home. He adjusted himself at the table. There were no windows, no cool air which made the room miserable in the summer heat.❞

This week’s read: Jane in Love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll start off with I love the cover design, it’s just fabulously done. I really love 2020 book cover designs coming out. They’re amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shame about the storyline though. I found myself itching to get my editing pen out and mark passages to be fixed. There were times were the scenes unrealistic, time jumps didn’t flow as nicely as they could have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It opened up with all the right things to hook a reader in, the premise of the story is good. It’s still a decent read, and I think this author has the potential to produce more fabulous books, but she needs an editor who isn’t afraid to push back and explain why so-and-so isn’t working.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3 stars from me. Did anyone else read this book? Did you love it or hate it?

Love and happiness is wonderful. But there is grief. There is anger. There is pain. There is fear. These are things all people have to feel. You can’t bypass this part. People have to express themselves or they will explode. Years and years of any kind of oppression will move through a body. Let them speak and listen. If not they will meltdown and fight and rage. Change holds discomfort, it’s the only way through. It can be a primal uprooting and a dark journey. Will we ever learn to listen with unbiased understanding?

Sometime during the 21st century someone told a writer to stop using said as a dialogue tag. It’s evil, bad, says you’re an amateur writer and lacks explaining what the character is expressing. From there it snowballed and now, everyone is afraid of said finding its way into their manuscript, much like the word ‘that’ (We’ll save ‘that’ one for another day!).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ll even find on Pinterest scores of posters (which often are poor quality and hard to read!) suggesting other words for said. Writers, if you’ve saved those, go find those files and put them in the bin immediately. They’re doing you a disservice.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Said is an invisible dialogue tag and fine to use. It’s how often you use it, that can be an issue. Most of the time, it slots in nicely into the sentences. The last thing you want to do is go crazy on said and other dialogue tags with words like, yelled, cried, moaned, etc. Not every tag needs to have an emotion or reaction. Sometimes, you can just go between dialogues with a thought process, or an action. Sometimes, you don’t need anything! So long as it’s always clear who’s doing the talking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before you go rushing back to your manuscripts to replace all dialogue tags with said, first you need to know if it’s needed. Ask yourself this question. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Will the reader know who’s doing the talking? If the answer is no, use said. If it’s yes, use nothing or add an action tag or said, don’t go crazy though! It’s all about balance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It can also come down to the context of the scene. Study some of your favourite traditionally published books, how did the author use said? Is it frequent? what did the author replace said with and how?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Writing is a learned as well as an intuitive skill. You won’t get it right on the first go, but you will learn to incorporate the right amount of said and other dialogue tags as your writing skills grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And lastly, always consider consulting an editor, they are here to help you with finding the perfect words to shape up your manuscript!
