Started plotting and figuring out a revamped version of my old story today. It’s scary and frustrating starting something new, I have had this idea floating in my mind since freshman year of high school. 8 years later I’m still toying with it and it has grown the most in the last three months. Sometimes stories have to be put away, set on the back burner so they can simmer and brew. The richest teas come from a longer steeping, as is with stories. I just hope I can form this story into a trilogy, into something rich and decadent for my readers. Words have always been my passion, literature my love, but no amount of studying structure and words makes magic happen. You have to persevere, give it your all, and know at the end of the day you’ve done your best. That’s all you can ask.
Long Lost Loved Bestie,
I still remember those days when my day started with a Good Morning message and ended by a Good night with a special name attached to it everyday. Today the messages are same, people are different. My auto correct still suggests that special names that were reserved for you.
It's the worst feeling when you see the person online, daily visiting their profile but you cannot message them.
Now I exactly know how Best friend break ups are the worst of all!
Those shared memories still make me smile and then wonder where I went wrong that you went away.
I am still waiting for the special message tone to ring which I have customised to your contact so it will bring smile on my face; Expecting that we can start our journey once again!
Your Long Lost Friend. -Md Talal (@talalsahibole )
I can't watch a movie or even the trailer without reading it's paper counterpart.
I'm also the type of person to get attached to characters and their world so when I finish a book it's like a breakup; I need at least a week to get myself together. (P.S. @erikaljames if you ever see this; the part in the book when C says "You leaving me?" that had me in tears. I read that page alone like 3x.)
As the night closes, I hope that each of you are able to look forward to tomorrow.
Mentally think of what you want to feel and what you want to get done. Put that energy into making that happen.
To those who may be waking up, take that energy and go into today with it.
(I forgot to add how to apply! Sorry lol. So just follow me and then email me at [email protected]) So, I’m nearly done doing my first round of edits and I’m getting to the point where I’m going to need some beta readers ❤️❤️. It’s a #paranormalromance kind of #fantasy set in present times in a world where humans, demons, and witches coexist. However, witches and demons –or lamia- are considered second class citizens after their defeat in a hundred-year war. The story follows two lamia, Riley and Damien, who have wildly different views on how to handle the world around them. After years of hiding her bright eyes and elven ears Riley builds a militia with the intent of taking over the world one country at a time. All the while Damien is content to hide who and what he is in an effort to live his life.
When lamia students start dying and Riley’s doorstep becomes the ‘it spot’ for death threats and ominous, anonymous warnings the revolution begins and both Riley and Damien are sucked into a battle that neither of them were ready for.
Oh, hey! 👋🏼🌻😎 #amwriting#happyday To my fellow writers: I hope you are knocking out epic word counts this week! To all the readers: I hope that you are blissfully lost within the pages of a wonderful story and that whatever you are currently reading has captivated your heart. 🚀✨

T E N D A Y S // I was shocked by how much I loved New Orleans. (I think I overlooked it as a vacation destination because it’s sooo close.) Lance is starting a grad program this summer and I’m so bummed we didn’t think to apply to LSU or Tulane. It would have been so fun to live there for a few years. Instead, I made my fictional characters live there in THE BEAU & THE BELLE. 😂 (Better than nothing right??) I CAN’T WAIT FOR Y’ALL TO READ THIS BOOK. 🙌🙌🙌
Q: What city would you move to just for a year or two? (If the whole real life thing didn’t exist 🤣) // #writersofinstagram#authorsofinstagram#thebeauandthebelle#amwriting
