Fledgling classes are for all kinds of writers. Sure, we’ve got poets, fiction writers, and memoirists, but I’ve met people who write one man shows, journal entries, fan fiction, stand up, letters, essays, plays, and, like Heather, songs. When we say “any genre goes,” we mean it. What type of writing do prompts inspire from you? 🎶 . . . . . #writingcommunity #writingprompts #writingtips #writinginspiration #writersofinstagram #writerslife #writeeveryday #amwriting #songwriting #playwriting #creativewriting #writingworkshop #generativeworkshop #fledglingwritingworkshops

Good copy is scannable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Use bullet points. Write short sentences. Use line breaks liberally. Place keywords at the very top of the page so the robots can find them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unless it's not the right time or the right way for you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Authentic writing may not know where the comma goes. It may be gushy. It may prefer voluptuous vocabulary words.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are definitely rules, especially when you're talking about web copy and SEO.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But when you're trying to create a heart connection with people who are interested in your work, especially on a social platform, you can't always predict or control what's going to happen. It's important to be real. It's important not to hold on too tightly. If that means you break the rules, then you break them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can always dial it back. You can always fix it. You can always learn. But you can't always develop an ardent voice online. Don't be afraid. Start writing. ⚪️🖊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @onebeautifullifephoto⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #pearlandinkwriting #clearandconscious #writersofinstagram #writer #copywriter #copywriting #writingtips #copywritingtips #writingtools #content #contentwriting #webcontent #contentcreation #contentcreator #contentdeveloper #storytelling #brandstory #businessstories #storytellingforbiz #bizstories #storiesforbiz #freelancewriting #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #smallbiz #solopreneur #entrepreneur #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneurlife #writingcommunity

“... and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.” -Almost Famous (Penny Lane) 🎥 There are many reasons that Almost Famous is one of my favorite movies, and this quote is just one of them. I find myself living this quote more and more recently. My local record store (sadly not the one pictured here) has become a place I go to recenter myself lately. Get those creative juices flowing, remember that this whole writing thing started with music journalism, and get inspired by thousand of sound poets. There might be the possibly that I’ll spend too much money, but hey, inspiration is priceless, right? #almostfamous #writing #writerlife #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #itsbetteronvinyl #ireadya #iwriteya #musicjunky #authorsofinstagram #yabooks #vinylrecords #nola #travel #latergram #beckhamsbookshop

Author friends! How much of yourself do you put into your writing? Into your characters? Into your setting? Lilac always carries a dropper of lavender oil with her, and she sure as hell didn’t forget it on her way to the witch. She drops it into her bath after she’s nearly devoured by ogres—and, upon being taken aback by Garin’s rudeness—at the Fenfoss Inn. I gave her this bottle because, struggling with anxiety and panic disorder myself, distilled lavender oil is something that helps ground me instantly. ⁣ ⁣ I am an unabashed fan of Twilight, so my prologue actually opens in a forest glade—except, the man and woman meeting in it absolutely despise each other, and it ends in unfortunate bloodshed before the start of chapter one.⁣ ⁣ Along with many other elements of this story, Garin’s grotto was inspired by the world of the Elder Scrolls games. Doesn’t every monster need his own (at times makeshift) lair to mull over all his dastardly deeds? Also, I’m still playing Skyrim eight years later...⁣ ⁣ In the world of DISENCHANTED, bark from the Hawthorne tree (once blessed at the abbey, that is) can be used to dispel most non-human creatures—not including the Fair Folk, who seem to hold an odd immunity to it. Highly regarded in real-life Celtic culture, the Hawthorne is a white flowering tree with red berries, most commonly found throughout the British Isles and parts of western France. In my spare time I enjoy studying folklore, namely Celtic folklore, so I thought the Hawthorne rather fitting!⁣ ⁣ How is your book/ WIP, well... you?⁣ ⁣ DISENCHANTED releases on March 10 with @theparliamentpress.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #writingcommunityofinstagram⁣ #writingcommunity⁣ #writingproject⁣ #writingabook #writersworld#authorsofinstagram #writingtips #writingtime #writinganovel #supportingauthors #authorssupportingauthors #writerslife #authorslife #amwriting⁣ #supportwriters #supportwritersandauthors⁣ #supportauthors #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #authorsofinsta #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writersofinsta #writerscommunity #writingprompt #writingprompts #writingchallenge ⁣ 🌟🌟🌟🌟

When we were young and we played with fire, Each step we took was on a wire. I took your hand, and you took me higher. But we fell into the dark. . Just as with my first book, the theme of music as a form of magic continues in Hidden...especially where Gren, our resident bard (well, the Wanderer, technically, but that will only make sense to those of you who have already read Destined) is concerned. This is a snippet from one of the songs he sings in the book, to mixed reactions from his audience. Sam and Sarah are pleased, at least. . . . #musicasmagic #indieauthors #independentauthors #indieauthorsonig #indiewriters #writerlift #indieauthor #writingcommunity #supportindieauthors #indieauthorlove #indieauthorsrock #amwritingfantasy #writingislife #youngadultfiction #yafiction #yafantasy #storyquotes #storyupdate #writerscommunity #writersofig #writerssupportingwriters #booksandart #swordandsorcery #strongfemalelead #booknerd #circleseries #writingupdate #readingandwriting #artistswhowrite #ihavemanyskills

• what if you approached every day as a “special occasion” — how different would your life be? ___ don’t base your happiness on some 3-5 moments (that may or may not take place in your life), simply because society told you they were the point of it all. ___ more than milestones, @gloriyanedler

Supernatural Separation: Father Chapter 7: Fighting the Wind I have a love hate relationship with action scenes. You have to balance between writing all the details while also making it fast enough to be, well action. While it's difficult it's also one of the fun parts of writing. Constantly learning and constantly balancing. Balanced as all things should be. ~ #goinghigherstories #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #readersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #selfpublishedauthor #quotes #bookquotes #books #library #fictionbooks #fantasybooks #youngadultbooks #authorssupportingauthors #blackgirlsread #📚 #readingisfundamental #writingcommunity #bookstagram #bookstagrammer

One of the downfalls of living in Central America. Finding books in English is difficult enough. Finding horror is damn near impossible unless you only want to read Stephen King. This is the entire English horror section in the store with the largest selection. Dracul was the only other horror(ish) book I found. #carverpike #horrorwriter #horrorauthor #readingcommunity #writingcommunity #HorrorCommunity #scarystories #horrorstories #horrorfamily #indieauthor #indieauthors #carverpikehorror #readersofinstagram #horrorinstagram #horrorauthorsofinstagram #horrorfiction #scaryreads #creepyreads #igreads #instareads #booksonig #horrorbookstagram #readers #bookstagram #read

☁️ —lately, i have noticed that i initially tend to seek out the harm in things, whether it be a great opportunity to something, a result i am hoping for, a conversation i plan on having with someone, etc. this habit forces me to stop proceeding towards a situation and take a WIDEEE step back, gauging the destruction i may place myself in. i keep telling myself that this is a defense mechanism, that i protect myself before i am even in harm’s way. but i have noticed how flawed this mechanism can be. in taking so long to figure out the danger and to protect myself from hurt, i tend to lose the opportunity waiting for me. either lose it, or fail it somehow. note to self: just do it (✔️) sometimes it’s better to jump headfirst into something and experience turmoil, conflict, growth, and development rather than shrink into the darkness, afraid of being hurt. honey—YOU’RE GONNA GET HURT. IT’S LIFE. IT’S CRUEL. SO SHAPE UP. and take the opportunities God gives you. they’re for a reason. they’re always for a reason. . . . #poet #poetry #poem #writer #writing #words #poetrycommunity #f4f #poetsofinstagram #writingcommunity #l4l #asmr #writersofinstagram #writersnetwork #mirakeewriters #ilovepoetry #kyliejenner #ilovebooks #selflove #selfconfidence #loveyourself #mentalhealth #books #womenempowerment #strongwomen #fakepeople #nobodycares #strongwomen #noexpectations #prejudice #stereotypes

Step into the shoes of a woman struggling with her mental health.⁣ *⁣ So many of us go through these struggles on a daily basis, but don’t realize that we’re not alone.⁣ *⁣ If you find yourself resembling this woman or know someone that does, please reach out and get help.⁣ *⁣ We all go through so much pain.⁣ *⁣ If we'd only open up about it more we'd realize that we're never as alone as we think.⁣ *⁣ 📖 Preview⁣ *⁣ What’s wrong with me? I see the world so differently than everyone else. It’s a terrifying place. Everyone I walk past is glaring at me. They all look so angry, so disgusted. Have I done something to deserve this? In my heart, I fear that I have. If I only knew what it was I could fix it, make everyone around me proud for a change. But I can’t. And so I continue to be a disappointment. A burden.⁣ *⁣ Mason was kind to me in the beginning. He looked at me in a way no one else would. Instead of disgust, his eyes were filled with empathy and hope. Hope that maybe I could one day be loved and know that it was true.⁣ *⁣ I’m still waiting for that day.⁣ *⁣ Mason asked me to marry him after we had been dating for about two years. At twenty-three I should’ve been old enough to understand what I was getting myself into. But I didn’t. I was in love, or so I thought.⁣ *⁣ It didn’t take long for Mason’s face to change.⁣ *⁣ The shift in how Mason felt about me didn’t happen overnight. No. It took years for him to get tired of me. I blame myself. No one has ever stuck by my side as long as Mason did and deep down I’ve always known that it was only temporary.⁣ *⁣ ⚡ #ShortStory Link In Bio ⚡⁣ *⁣ #shortstories #flashfiction #instastories #readinglife #readersofig #readinglife #readers #thrillerbooks #mystery #readingcorner #bookshelves #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #bookobsessed #bookishlove #booklovers⁣ #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #reader #igbooks #igreads #microfiction #writingcommunity #authorsofinstagram #selfpublished #selfpublishing

Caged Butterfly Some time ago I was scared of who I was. My own voice haunted me like an echo in a hollow cave. Yesterday my fear metamorphosed into courage. I grew wings of my own and it was then that I understood the power of self-love. Today I met you. Your arms became my shield to protect me from the pollution of the world. I was a masterpiece in the process. My own artist. Yet you made me feel like I was not complete without you. You took credit for my beauty. Just now, I understood that what you deceitfully called "care" was rather envy that one day I would be able to love myself without needing your acceptance. You trapped me in your lie so I would never realize the power I held within me. The power to heal. To love. To fly.

I want to kiss your scars, Make love to your wounds, I want to hold you in my arms, Make every piece of you mine. I want to make you laugh, Make you smile, Take every pain you have, Shove it aside from you. I want to hold your hand, Keep holding it forever, I want to peck your worries, Make sure you don't quiver. I want to hold you in my arms, Put my head in your lap of heaven, I want to die in you, I want to stay in you. Your beauty ignites sparks in me, Your elegance bursts off my soul, I keep getting ignited and burned, Burning inside you, Igniting for you. The dream I see everyday still haunts me, Where you and I are holding hands, kissing and embracing each other, Then I open my eyes and don't find you with me, I close my eyes and see that dream again and I want to keep dreaming. © Ashraf Shaikh #igwriters#instapoetry#follow#writingcommunity#poetsofig#poets#stories#writersofindia#poesia#qotd#yourquote#sad#poemsofinstagram#instawriters#like#poetryisnotdead#quotestagram#photography#spokenword#igwritersclub#writeaway#instagood#poetrylovers#artist#instapoet#wordswag#inspiration#spilledink
