All. It's Monday! And I am FINALLY re-couped and rested and back to work. I snagged this pic from @lib_ertybell of me and @lindseysmithhhc at last weekend's conference (bc I'm always terrible at properly documenting), and I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who came to PPP, participated in the conference, pitched, or attended/participated in the vendor fair. It was our biggest conference yet, and I'm so proud of what my best partner and I have created for the writing community! X If you pitched to me and have emailed me your query/MS, you should get an email from me at some point today confirming my receipt of your submission. I was pitched SO, SO many BRILLIANT and beautiful books, and I can't wait to dig into them all! I was astounded by the degree of talent in all of the #writers pitching at #pitchpublishpromote! โค๏ธโค๏ธ

All good things must, sadly, come to an end. Hello, my creepy-crawly darlings. Mother Goth here. This yearโ€™s Summer Community of Writers drew to a close in a delightfully haunting fashion, with an intense blood moon and full lunar eclipse on Friday (not to mention four planets in retrograde), and a dark and twisted Goth Prom on Saturday. It was so nice to get to hunker down in nature for ten days and ride out some of the celestial madness that has been wreaking havoc these last few weeks. It was also the perfect opportunity to channel some of that manic energy into my craft, which had become, to be honest, depressingly stagnant. Luckily everyone at SCW had this really great energy this year, which came together like magick to create the perfect generative space. Iโ€™ve become incredibly fond of this spirited bunch of MFA students. They have a genuine enthusiasm for life, which is contagious, and I continue to be inspired by their boundless playfulness, creativity, and love. Never let go of that magic inside you, my dear Gothlings ๐Ÿ’œ #mothergoth #writingretreat #scw18

My time at the Summer Community of Writers has come to a close. But the information learned will last for a lifetime. Here are a few snippets I found immensely helpful: No one work needs to contain the universe. โ˜„๏ธ Write what you want not what you think your story needs. ๐Ÿ” Imagine your novel in scenes, cut out the long, boring transitions. ๐Ÿ“ฝ It is critical to withhold information, however, DO NOT withhold what the character wants. ๐Ÿคซ Write the punchy nuggets. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

Good Morning! It's Sunday and the beginning of another amazing #writing week and a new writing session. Just came back to "Planet Earth" after writing about the courage to be seen and heard when it comes to making the decision to share my #transformational #story in a big author circle. I just finished writing a flashback to a time when I had greatly undermined my #courage muscle. As a 19 year old #American soldier, I arrived in #Israel in 1990 to serve in the #idfonline but the kibbutz that was supposed to absorb me had no room so I was sent to a dinky settlement in the middle of the Negev desert known as Ritamin which today, no longer exists. But back then it consisted of just 30 mostly under the ages of 30. This is where my #determination and #motivation actually get cemented. So what is cool and I wish I could show my decision making process behind this scene. The flashback would provide the emotional context and thru thread of courage, pulling me to end one scene with a line break #### and then start the next scene with me stepping out into the courage circle as I call it, so by the time I make that decision to act out my story, I am taking action. #Fear and #self-doubt are not taking over and it's okay for me to be seen. #amwriting

Good Morning! Although it's snowing here in #Pittsburgh, I am feeling such a strong inner peace listening to #snatamkaur. She is the voice of a #transformational retreat I participated in 2012 of authors and #christinekloser as my guide. It was a very powerful experience because I almost ended up leaving the #author retreat. I am still figuring the defining moment of this scene out. Maybe it was because I felt #vulnerable or afraid to be seen in that circle of 40 #transformational authors. I almost felt like a fraud. Maybe I didn't have what it takes to take my message to the next #heart level considering my history of straddling #Israeli and #American cultures and no-one would be able to adequately understand. Part of me felt #shame and #fear... Like what the heck was I doing there? Everything felt foreign, but I would learn to take a chance on myself. Sometimes.... That is all you can do. Take a chance on yourself as you lean in to your heart's calling. I am not a person who deals very well with #ambiguity and I would have to "just do it" as I made the decision to just step into that great big circle of #transformational #authors and acted out my story of leaving #America to serve in the #idfonline. #IsraelDefenseForces #amwriting

Do you ever have trouble working when you're anxious about something, or just feeling down? I have to admit I'd fallen into a bit of a funk, & my work was suffering. A couple days of #sunshine did wonders! So did a couple #spring field trips, to a flower show & a maple festival. Take a walk; take a nap. There's no shame in #selfcare! #writerslife #writing #writersofpittsburgh #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writingtips #flowers #springflowers #vintagetub #phippsconservatory

"There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, nobody knows what they are." (W. Somerset Maugham) If you want to write, it's important to learn the craft. But sometimes you've just got to break the rules. #writing #writingtips #writersofpittsburgh #writersofig #writersofinstagram #amwriting #amediting #amrevising #amwritingmystery #cozymystery

I write in the early morning. There's something about letting my mind wander and fantasize in the morning twilight that just satiates my soul. This morning was a doozy, though. I went to bed last night with an aching pain in my neck that was creeping up into a painful headache. So, I drank a bunch of water and just went to sleep. But I sprang up out of my sleep at 6am with a story in my brain--a plot that I've been wrestling with for years came clear, all the details, the settings, which characters to keep and which to cut out and use for something else--it all came rushing. I jumped up out of bed at 6am, grabbed a pen and my notebook, and outlined that GD novel this morning. My head feels a lot better now :)

SWIPE to read full poem. X Happy Thursday and happy Women's Day! It took me a whole week to recover from the Blue Rooms book launch. On Friday, I started to panic a bit because I had deadlines to meet and things to get done and talks to schedule and the hustle just felt so overwhelming because my brain was TIRED and overextended. But I learned a long time ago that self-care is the most important part of being a productive entrepreneur and a gentle human, so I reached out to all of my clients and obligations, and each of them graciously told me to go sleep, and I did. I slept from Friday to Sunday, seriously. Now I'm back on the grind and it feels great! X Here is a poem from the book that I wanted to share with you on Women's Day because it encapsulates what it means to find empowerment through loss; to shed the societal coil that teaches young women to rely on romantic and fantastical love for happiness and contentment, because my life wouldn't be nearly as happy or rewarding had I not fought against that! Last Stand is about feminine awakening and power, and it closes the 2nd part of Blue Rooms. X Also, blueroomsbook.com has been updated with a reading schedule, so come hear me read and let's drink tea and talk about art! XOXO

Just corrected the proof for my next #chickensoupforthesoul story, which should appear later this year in The Power of Yes. The theme is: stepping outside your comfort zone. I LOVE my comfort zone, but I have to tell you every time I stretch and do something a bit scary, I feel amazing. How about you? (BeeGee says, "I didn't step outside my comfort zone. I was squeezed out.") #writing #cats #writersofinstagram #writersofig #kittycats #kitties #amwriting #amediting #published #writerslife #writersofpittsburgh

I think I must have the midwinter blahs! (How did people survive in snowbound cabins in 1832??) Maybe it's just that I feel stalled, trying to cut 26 more pages from my novel. It looks like we may never see the sun again, so thank the Lord for #coffee!

Convex chests, swan milk arms, on the concrete, we laid, poring, outside of the planetarium, fingertips brushing grass blades because the stars were out of our reach, though we thought we were the universe.

What's holding you back? When you sit down to focus on a project, is there something nagging you from the back of your mind? Or maybe you're experiencing a subconscious block in your thoughts. That was the case for me. X I've been a writer my entire life, and a professional writer for the past seven years. I keep a steady schedule and write a number of novels and memoirs every year--for other people. But when it came to my own work, something deep in the back of my brain was holding me back. There was a block, and honestly I was scared to explore it, grapple it, uncover it. X So I took a big dose of my own medicine. As a book coach, I counsel writers through their work. And when I say "counsel," I mean it. Writing is hard because it props up a mirror, and sometimes our reflection is tough to face. But it was time I face mine, and that's how Blue Rooms was born. X The writing was tough. The honest introspection was harder, but having wrestled it all and poured it onto the page, I. Feel. Liberated. In all aspects of my life, healing myself through the writing process has changed and evolved me. And now I want to show you exactly how to do the same so you get rid of those built up blockages and achieve your next big goal. X Come join me and @_jordancorcoran_ on February 3rd at The City Keep to learn EXACTLY how to use writing to find clarity and peace โค๐Ÿ“šโœ Link in bio.
