Here's a peek at today's post ... "Recently I heard someone on Instagram say something along the lines of … limits or boundaries do not hinder creativity or imagination, they actually encourage it. When you only have so much budget, so much space, so much time – it forces you to really get creative! After moving a few pieces of furniture around in our livingroom and hiding toys elsewhere, I ended up with the same layout. Then it hit me – colour! I need colour!..."

Reality isn’t the source of fear but rather an abstract.  A single solitary light will keep the darkness at bay. The visions dance around on the peripheries of where light and dark meet never venturing into full sight. As sleep draws near replacing an alert state of mind, the visions draw closer their glittering blurred lines becoming more solid and clear. .

Is it clichè or bias for a writer to have a nice glass of wine while writing? 😊💕
I think not. But that's just me😁

Today’s 👶🏽 #ootd is adorable and primarily made up of hand-me-downs. Including the giant boots she’s shuffling around in. Does it look like I’m made of money? ⠀⠀
She’ll grow into them...eventually.😬

Naturally, you would think your supporters would be your biggest motivators. But that’s actually never been the case for me. I find it is those who are unsupportive who drive me to constant improvement. They are the ones who push me to better myself each and every day.
🎭
So for that, I am thankful. Thankful to those who remind me why I do what I do. Thankful for being self-aware and knowing myself more than others know me. Thankful because I understand that the happier I am with my own decisions in life, the closer I am to achieving personal success.
🌾
The vision you have for your life serves as the catalyst for change. The amount of discouragement you encounter is minimized when you stop expecting others to constantly be there for you and provide their reassurance. You become more focused on your goals. Your priorities shift and gravitate towards the things that matter. You learn to depend less on what others can do for you and more on what you can do for yourself.
💡
You are responsible for making decisions that are best for you. Don’t wait for someone else to make them for you. It is your duty to ensure that no matter what happens at any given moment, you are content with the life you’ve led. If you make a mistake along the way, it is up to you to own it and learn from the experience.
🔑
Your happiness doesn’t depend on whether or not someone consents to the way you choose to live your life. What it really comes down to is the role you’ve played to get yourself to where you are, with or without having a support system behind you.

Your inability to be available has never been a concern.
However, your lack of ability in treating me like I am more than just a object... weighs more than sex ever could.

I cannot hide what I feel. 
What I feel cannot be hidden. 
Such is the nature or love. 
Imprison it, lock it up or hide it, 
it remains free like the wind. 
You know not where it comes from, 
you know not where it goes. 
It is and so it remains; 
open and visible.

combined with romance, humor, and, best of all, heart.”

A sunny day is slowly obscured by a silvery mist that rolls in off the lake. This is what horror stories are made of. I don't read or write in that genre (although I'm thinking of attempting to write in it), because a certain movie completely traumatized me in my early teens. There is, however, something wonderfully chilling about a small town filled with historical homes. You can almost see the ghosts of past residents walking down the tree lined streets. .

Inspired by @malcolmgladwell single rule for life: pull the goalie. I decided to come up with my own list based on how I actually live not ideals I cannot live up to. Take it for what it’s worth, but it’s a good exercise to do because it brings into focus what you think you believe versus the way you behave. These rules are in lockstep with how I behave. What are your rules? #quebecwriter #mtl #yul #writinglife #montrealwriter #bloke #Ôstiebloke #mauditetêtecarrée #canadianwriter #canadianshortstory #thesoapboxcommunity #tinhouse #bernicky

If I could be anywhere today, it would be +30 and we’d be half dressed.

Basically anywhere on the east coast of Canada (and not on the west).😂
⠀⠀
I keep seeing pics of my friends back home having bonfires or at the beach. Meanwhile, I wore my winter coat yesterday and have the heat jacked up.

I’m not jealous, I’m just sayin’...something ain’t right.🙄

Day 16 of #instawrimo asks to cast our main character. This gives me the perfect time to introduce you to the feline of the hour: Jinx. Now Jinx is not just any black cat, he is a familiar which means he has a human form as well. If you look in just the right light even in his human form you may see that glint in his eyes that makes them look more feline then human. He has the power to manipulate the elements using his naturally born celestial lunar magick.

If someone mistreated you in this very moment, would you forgive them? What if that same person was someone you invested all of your trust and faith in? What if they took advantage of your heart and filled it with everything but kindness? Could you still find it within yourself to forgive them?
🍃
The answer should be simple: Yes, you should. Forgiveness is for you, not for them. Forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you. Forgive your heart for being able to maintain its purity in a world full of corruption.
💙
It’s natural for you to feel pain immediately after its infliction. Think of a scab and how long it takes to heal. When you first injure yourself, the pain you feel on your body is immediate. And you continue to feel a stinging sensation for a while. But over time, the scab falls off on its own and the skin underneath begins to heal and regenerate. Your heart acts in the same way.
🗿
All physical and emotional pain needs time to heal fully. The hurt you experience from others is not going to suddenly dissipate. Just like it took time for the pain to settle, it will take time for it to fade away.

This is the 3rd (and last) sample I'm posting from my short story "The Axiom Capsule". It's also the final paragraph of the story; I like performing excerpts from the endings of my published stories at live readings because of how it creates a curiosity of what led to that moment (in very little time). *Photo taken by Carolyn Hyde @ladycuniverse

!!!GIVEAWAY!!! Well, I promised you a giveaway, and here it is! I happen to know a spectacular lady who is also a local children's author, and I thought I would celebrate the release of her 4th book by giving this pair away to one of you! 
Seconds and Running Behind ( published by @orcabook ) tell the stories of Jake and Spencer and their love for cross country running. They deal with topics like " winning isn't everything, " and " working together as a team. " They've been called " relatable, " and great for " struggling / reluctant readers ". They're middle grade fiction and I guarantee that any boy or girl that age will enjoy these books! 
So, to win these books, all you need to do is follow me, like this photo, tag a friend in the comments, and let me know if you were on any sports team in middle school! 
The giveaway closes September 30. No giveaway accounts. This giveaway is not affiliated with instagram, orca books, or anyone else for that matter. It's open internationally, but if you are under 18, you must have parental permission to dm your address ( cause I'm going to need it to mail it to you!). I think that's all! Good luck! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

So, to win these books, all you need to do is follow me, like this photo, tag a friend in the comments, and let me know if you were on any sports team in middle school! The giveaway closes September 30. No giveaway accounts. This giveaway is not affiliated with instagram, orca books, or anyone else for that matter. It's open internationally, but if you are under 18, you must have parental permission to dm your address ( cause I'm going to need it to mail it to you!). I think that's all! Good luck! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #reading  #eating  #books  #booksofinstagram  #bookstagram  #biblophile  #september  #septemberreads  #igreads  #bookish  #readtolive  #booksarefriends  #goodreads  #bookblogger  #ilovebooks  #bookworm  #alwaysreading  #booknerd  #bookaddict  #fallreading  #middlegradebooks  #middlegradefiction  #crosscountryrunning  #bookgiveaway  #canadianwriter  #seconds  #runningbehind  #orcabookpublishers  #orcabooks  #giveaway 
If you’re seeking love, seek a love like this. ♥️
If you’re seeking love, seek a love like this. ♥️
Isolation vs Solitude. Don’t confuse these two concepts. They both imply being alone; however, there is a significant difference to note between them.
🥀 
Isolation isn’t something that is sought. The act of isolating oneself excludes an individual from social environments they may actually want to be a part of. However, they unknowingly build walls around themselves which prevents others from reaching and connecting with them.
🌹 
Solitude, on the other hand, is something that you actively seek. It’s a desire to rekindle the relationship you have with yourself. The person retreats from their social life in order to reenergize and revitalize their lives without deprivation. The time they spend alone refuels them and gives them the clarity they need to rejoin reality with a clear and balanced mind-frame.
🌱
Know the difference and don’t be afraid to spend time alone. Don’t underestimate the power it can have to bring you new perspective on things you’ve never given much thought. The time you spend with yourself could be the one thing you need that can set everything straight.

I was thinking of this photo today, from our honeymoon in 2008. I remember looking at Jason and thinking, "Holy shit, I am married. This is my husband walking in front of me right now" and I took this photo to mark that moment. I've always been pleased that it happened in a bookstore!⠀

Just because the leaves are letting go, it doesn't mean they're giving up. This is simply a new path, this is tumbling and then following the breeze, it's being windswept and trusting your wings. 🍂

When the plane you take is so small that, 1. you have to wait on the tarmac to get your luggage and 2. you stand so close you can't get the whole plane in the shot. Apparently though, I was the only one so impressed by this, everyone else was acting like they do it every day.

Shake Saturday? 🥤🥤Ok maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but I had to post something. I haven’t been as active on instastories lately because I’m sick with a mother of a chest cold. It’s that time of the year I guess 🤧 I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on crafting product for my Etsy shop- not just designing on the computer, but actually “crafting” 🖌. Tonight after work I’ll be writing and editing all night, so catch me with some form of caffeine in hand. ☕️ What are your weekend plans?? #pointeduchene #exploreNB #discoverNB #shakesaturday #ecmmedia #adventuresathome #canadianwriter #canadianblogger #canadianmom

Day 15 of #instawrimo is my support crew. Here are my fur babies. Both like to disrupt anything I ever do but they also make me laugh and relax. Love my girls.

Hard to execute but I’m trying and that is all that matters. Here’s a reminder to be gentle on yourself and clap for all the good and bad times that have made you the amazing individual you are today•💕😊 •swipe for a 4 part poem• .

Beginning, Middle, End. Every storyteller has heard this. But what does it really mean? 
In the Beginning, the hero is disengaged from the Act of Villainy. Perhaps unaware,  or maybe doesn’t care. But when the hero enters the Middle, he/she has made a conscious choice to get involved in the story. However, resources remain limited. There is struggle to defeat the villain. The hero needs the Magical Agent—the thing that makes defeating the villain possible—before entering the End of the story. This is where the Magical Agent is used and the hero is able to liquidate the Act of Villainy that started the story in the first place.

I had a great time doing an interview with the Mississauga Arts Council yesterday for their video series profiling local artists =) Thanks to Amrita Chopra for being a great interviewer and to M.A.C. for the opportunity! I'll post the link when the video goes up in a couple of weeks. They've also done great interviews with artists such as Alissa Skorik, Michelle Hillyard, and Anubha Mehta.
