bookedsoul. What’s one thing that you can say you’re really proud of yourself for?

What’s one thing that you can say you’re really proud of yourself for? Something you achieved on your own? I’ve told you all this once or twice before, but I never considered myself a writer until just a little over a year ago. It’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made—becoming a writer—because it led me to where I am right now. I’ve been writing my timeline for my Bosnian historical fiction that I want to publish one day, and honestly I’m overwhelmed with joy and excitement already. I’ve teared up numerous of times because of the heavy subject matter, but I know it’s worth it. I’m really proud of myself for how far I’ve come so far with this. I just never thought I could l do it. I cannot wait to actually start writing the chapters, and the story in general ♡ - This is what my writing den (a cleaner version) has been like the past week and a half or so as I’ve been creating; Johann Sebastian Bach, Frédéric Chopin, Ludovico & Jóhann Jóhannsson playing in the background, peanut butter cookies with tea to make me happy & keep my spirits up ✨💫 ______________________________________________ #writer #write #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #writerslife #writersblock #writers_den_ #read #reading #readingnook #reader #hygge #tumblr #tumblraesthetic #minimal #neutraldecor #journaling #writeaway #writersnetwork #bookstagram #bibliophile #booknerd #booknerdigans #instagood #selflove #motivation #flatlay #selflove

You won't believe it. But I'm almost finishing Ulysses. I'm obsessed with this book, I'm devouring it. . But one thing that I still don't know if I like it or not is the fact that James Joyce used different styles on each part of the novel. There's even a whole part written as a play. As I reach the end of the book, I understand and admire his courage. But I still don't know if I'd do that as a writer myself. . I immediately thought about Macunaíma by Mario de Andrade. It's a book whose style also changes according to the evolution of the plot in regard of the main character. It's fantastic. I think it works perfectly with Ulysses too. . In my current forever WIP, I chose three point of views that alternate among each other. With that, I want to give the reader a more dynamic way of reading my story, and also treat it as a puzzle with pieces you get gradually until you can finally put them all together and perceive the whole picture. So, I think it's fair to assume that I like this style changing thing. . Ok, I have a question (two, actually): 💬 WRITERS, how do you feel about changing styles throughout the novel? 💬 READERS, how do you feel when you're reading and the style changes? . 😜 #beardy

I’m 24 today. This is the year to take my power back 🤘🏽 • I’m making my own decisions. Im having my own opinions. Im SPEAKING my own opinions. I’m not asking for permission to be myself. I’m not spending my time with people who prove they don’t care about me. I’m standing up for what matters. Im respecting my own body and soul. I’m expecting others to respect my body and soul. I’m holding people accountable when they don’t. I’m paying attention. I’m listening. I’m ready. Im loving myself. I’m taking my power back. LETS GOOOOO.

Da ganz viele von euch neu dazugekommen sind, gibt es von mir ein Hallo und ❤lich willkommen! 🤗 Hier findet ihr ganz viel Bücher-, Kaffee- und Schottlandliebe. Das Bild ist übrigens - wie könnte es anders sein - in Schottland entstanden, nämlich auf Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh. Der Friedhof spielt übrigens auch in #Sturmtochter 1 eine wichtige Rolle 💙 Aktuell schreibe ich an Flying High, Band 2 meiner neuen New-Adult-Dilogie im LYX-Verlag, an einem spannenden Geheimprojekt (pssst!) und beginne in wenigen Tagen mit der Arbeit an Sturmtochter 3 für Ravensburger 😊 Einige Fragen habe ich schon in den Stories beantwortet (schaut mal in das Highlight Q&A), aber wenn ihr noch etwas wissen wollt, raus damit! Ich versuche es in den nächsten Posts und in meinem Newsletter zu beantworten 🤗🎉

Guten Morgen, ihr Lieben! ☕ . Ich stürze mich gleich wieder in das Manuskript von »Die Krone der Dunkelheit: Magieflimmern«, denn heute steht eine Szene mit meinem Lieblingspiraten an. 😍 Allerdings wollte ich euch kurz wissen lassen, dass es auf der Webseite vom @piperverlag aktuell wieder signierte Exemplare von Band 1 zu kaufen gibt. (Link in der Bio!) . Ein kleiner Weihnachtsbonus 🎄: Mit jeder Bestellung nehmt ihr automatisch an einem Gewinnspiel teil. Der Hauptgewinn ist ein Exemplar von Band 2, zusätzlich werden aber auch einige Postkarten-Sets der Charakter verlost. . Ich wünsche euch nun einen guten Start in den Tag. 🙌 Und ich gehe mit Elory mal etwas Unruhe stiften. 😏 . #diekronederdunkelheit #highfantasy #highromantasy #fantasy #romantasy #piper #laurakneidl #bookstagram #booknerd #instabook #autorenleben #amwriting #schreiben #autorenaufinstagram #autorenalltag #autorin #writerslife #writersofig #writewritewrite #writersofinstagram #writagram #lovemyjob #writingvibes #whyiwrite

Ready for some real “woo woo” ish? When I was getting rejections from some agents & others had been sitting with my proposal in limbo for a couple of weeks, I told Dean, “Lets go out to celebrate!” 🎉 . . Him: “Celebrate what?” 🤔 . Me: “Getting a literary agent. It feels so close, and I think ‘acting as if’ would be the final push for me to get “the call”. 📱 . In true Dean fashion, he chuckled, shook his head at my shananagans and said “okay Té” .🤪 . We got dressed, went to dinner at a pretty fancy restaurant & celebrated. This was on a Saturday. ☝🏽. . That following Wednesday I got “the call” with an offer of representation. 2 weeks later I had two other interested agents & signed with one. 💁🏽‍♀️ . . I share all of this to say, sometimes you are so close. At that moment you want to stop and begin doubting , is the precise moment that you need to put your all into the manifestation of your dreams. 💛 🌙 . 👚 = @longstoryshort.life 📷 = @photobykwdotcom .

Basic hand/wrist mobility on the heavy bag. Take it to any profession where you need your hands a lot. I prefer a round of #BruceLee-style backfist practice to prehab carpal tunnel after editing a new @medium article on twerking. (And you think I’m joking. Wait for tomorrow.) #correctiveexercise #backfist #martialarts #carpaltunnel #prehab #writerslife #heavybagtherapy

Channeling my inner fierceness today. Was ridden off the road yesterday by a car. Crashed my bike. Fractured my pelvis. But I’m up on crutches. No surgery needed. Just time to heal. There’s a Buddhist saying: be thankful for the toothache you don’t have. It could have been worse. I’m going to focus on writing and editing my new novel! #nanfischerauthor #inkyardpress #harpercollins #beyourbestself #youngadultfiction #writinginspiration #amreading #writingcommunity #writinginspiration #yalit #yafiction #yogainspo #writerslife #authors #amwriting #whenelephantsfly

Anyone else have a writing goal they’re frantically trying to meet before the new year? I reallllly want this current draft I’m working on to be behind me by the time I leave for vacation, so that means I need to write about 24 chapters in 15 days😐. • • • I think I can, I think I can

authordestinymurtaugh. Something I’ve learned over the last few days: it’s okay to have hard

Something I’ve learned over the last few days: it’s okay to have hard days, but don’t let the hard days win. Push through, keep working on your goals, dare to believe in yourself and what you stand for. At the end of the day the only person who really has a say in your life is you. 🌻 . . Today I posted a video that I am really excited about and really proud of. It’s a video outlining 8 tips / things to remember when shopping for plus-size people. This is a video I wish had existed when I was growing up both for myself and my friends and family. You can find it linked in my bio and it would mean the world if you would support it by watching, liking and/or commenting ☺️💗

I finished off the toughest revisions for today! Now to sit down with a few history books and make some fun line edits. Featured above is a 1943 Handbook for Wireless Operators — and neat bonus, I found an original transaction note inside from when someone paid 25 cents to buy this copy in 1949! Reprinted in Canada “by permission of the Controller of His Majesty’s Stationary Office, London”. 🤓 #writerslife #amwriting #bookstagram #bookworm #history #yafantasyauthor

What a way to end this crazy year: today we turned in the first draft of our tv pilot for The Rule of One. 📺 👯‍♀️This photo was taken Day 1 on our journey to (hopefully 🤞🏻) bring Ava & Mira to the screen. Couldn’t be doing this without our badass partner @danascalvo 🙏🏻
