What’s your kryptonite? 💎 Mine is slow wifi. Arrgghhhh! Does it get any worse than when you have a project to deliver that should normally take an hour or two, but instead takes all day? To me, that’s my Achilles heel. My kryptonite. I’m not proud of my crankiness levels when the wifi is spotty, but I quite literally feel powerless. What’s your kryptonite?

Basking in that post yoga glow and finishing up a little writing this afternoon. Then I’m heading to the Kurios premiere. This will be our version of a family Thanksgiving. 🎪🇯🇵On that note, I think it’s time for a gratitude list. Pause. Smile. And breathe... What are you grateful for today?

Hello fabulous girlbosses!! ⠀
Who is ready for Thanksgiving dinner? 🙋‍♀️⠀
I used to always stress out when I hosted a family or friend dinner. And while the menu and cooking was relatively easy—it was the table setting that got me flustered every time! The reason was that I never thought out the presentation of the table. I just started to set the table on the day of the event, and then I scrambled to make it look pretty. So take it from me….The tablescape is just as important as the food you are cooking, and it deserves planning too!⠀
Did I just totally stress you out? You might be thinking… “what do I do? I don’t know the first thing about decorating a table…”- Not to worry, I’ve got you covered. ⠀
Even if you're not hosting Thanksgiving dinner, I have some cute decor ideas in my blog and on the website for any / all occasions! 🍽 💕⠀
⠀
Visit my blog for inspiration! ⠀

Sporadic novel update 3: mostly just a gratitude fest if I’m being honest. I’ve managed to write a LOT so far even with some missed days due to stress, energy, and assorted feels. I don’t think I ever said it before, but my goal isn’t actually to finish my latest draft this month, but to expand the latest and greatest arcs before me. So to be sitting down with a hot drink as evening sleets around my little town with even more avenues of plot and action I’d never considered opening in front of me kind of a gift. (Thanks @ashley.swat_boats @anum_asi @sophiaveltfort @gomezorgohome 🌈😍) So today’s work, whatever it turns out to be, isn’t going to be what I’d planned at all. But that just makes it more exciting.

The first chapter serves as a mini model of your entire book; it tells readers what to expect, while also getting them interested enough to find out for themselves.
.
.
Here are some of the most common mistakes I see in first chapters:
.
—Opening the book with a boring, generic line. i.e. the character waking up.
.
—Head-Hopping. It makes it so difficult to establish the main POV when there are so many others being introduced, this goes for characters as well. Please don’t introduce a dozen characters in your first chapter, most people can’t keep track of them all.
.
—Allowing the character to speak or think uninterrupted for paragraphs at a time. It completely stops the action and takes away the world-building.
.
—Too much backstory and not enough conflict.
.
—Stilted dialogue. Doesn’t come off as realistic or believable.
.
.
Long story short, if your first chapter isn’t amazing, you may not get the opportunity to show the reader that the rest of your book is. Try taking one or two of these tips and applying them, hopefully they’ll help.💫💫

It is official....From the Fire was released Saturday.  At the time this book was in its development, I was not ready to share any photos but this one had already been passed around social media.  It made sense to share it to the book so I wrote up its backstory to be included. The events are etched in my brain and "burned" into my soul.  I can still close my eyes and smell, hear and feel everything of December 4-5 2017 but my nightmares are slowly transforming into my superpower. 
I haven't seen the entire book yet, but this is "my page". My squad and I have been displaced, relocated, lost, separated and walked in fire, yet once again almost a year later.  Perla, Zsa Zsa and Poptart are all in different locations but our family bond is so tight it doesn't matter. Our hearts are always together and we know we have each others backs even if we are 1000 miles a part.

Thankful.  I wouldn’t be here with a clip on my back shooting the cover of TLM without you. It’s the small local businesses and our readers and everyone who helps behind the scenes that keeps this dream alive.  Many hands make light work but that doesn’t negate the importance of every single thing that you do.  Kind of random... but just like how this clip —that you would usually NEVER see —holds everything in....you are my clip and I SEE you. For that I’m EXTRA thankful this holiday season. My only hope for 2019 and as we continue to grow, is to find a way to repay all of you for your kindness, generosity and faith in me.  Even when I have struggled, I knew I’d get through the tough times... not because I had an obligation to— but because I never wanted to let you down.

Trying to squeeze in one more complete (new) scene to this revision before I head to the US for family thanksgiving. ✍️ I’m finding it helpful, first thing in the morning, to jot down answers to Lisa Cron (aka @wiredforstory ’s) scene checklist. It helps get me focused on why this scene matters before I  write the actual words by answering questions like what’s at stake, and what decision or conclusion my protagonist needs to reach. Both for my own motivation (because honestly it feels like Writing this is taking FOREVER) and to keep focused when I write.
✍️
FYI: I picked this checklist up from her Anatomy of a Scene scene class on @creativelive .

Don’t be afraid to set new goals or to dream new dreams. Life doesn’t end at 40 or 50 or 60. Life ends when you stop living it.

I set new goals every month. In November, my goal was to write a novel. At 36K words, I’m more than halfway there, which is no small accomplishment. Going into the end of the month, I doubt I will finish on time.

Last night, I got notes back on a screenplay, and those notes take priority. It’s not a page-one rewrite, but I’m rewriting for tone and tweaking almost every line. It’s not quick.

It doesn’t mean I won’t be able to finish the novel, but I won’t be doing it on my timeline.

Goals change. Plans change. I’m changing with them. My novel will be waiting for me when I’m done.

What goals do you want to accomplish by the end of the year? How far do you plan ahead?

Don’t be afraid to set new goals or to dream new dreams. Life doesn’t end at 40 or 50 or 60. Life ends when you stop living it. I set new goals every month. In November, my goal was to write a novel. At 36K words, I’m more than halfway there, which is no small accomplishment. Going into the end of the month, I doubt I will finish on time.

Today could be the day.
.
The day was supposed to be last Friday. Then I asked for an extension until NEXT Friday...
.
But I think today is the day.
.
The day I turn the manuscript for my book in once and for all!
.
👏🏻✨👏🏻✨👏🏻
.
So. If you see me dancing down the streets of NYC or smiling off into space... you’ll know why.
.
(And... if you don’t see me smiling or dancing it’s because today ISN’T actually the day. But we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it).

It's amazing how the little choices we make every day impact our futures on such a grand scale. When I wrote and published my first novel, I had no idea that writing would change the direction of my life so drastically and yet … as hard as some of those changes have been, I'm grateful for everything my new life is still becoming.  https://authorbrandikennedy.blogspot.com/2013/04/changes.html⠀

OK, now that I've got your attention, the Christmas anthology is out today! There's a new Charlie Davies story inside, so make sure you grab a copy. (Link in bio.)
🐖
All proceeds go to Good Fortune Farm Refuge, so reading it basically makes you a hero.

Sixteen mysteries! Get ready for some serious seasonal sleuthing. I hope you're ready to read at length about someone struggling with a broken air conditioner in the summer heat. Bet you can't guess where that plot idea came from.

I was originally supposed to have the day off until some super crucial stuff hit work and I had to go in. I had been planning on writing 6-8K words to make up for not writing at all this weekend but life got in the way haha. I still managed to write more than 3K after my super long day so I’m proud of myself. I’m feeling overwhelmed by a lot of the stuff on my plate right now but I’m determined that #NaNoWriMo be one of the things I succeed in.

Yes, there are times where this is not true, but sometimes you need to start with a quick-'n-dirty rule to clean up your manuscript, and once you've got that down you can get into the nitty gritty—or you can let me . . .

Jot those ideas down immediately!! I find myself constantly scribbling out random thoughts and ideas when it comes to copywriting and brand strategy. Any other creatives out there constantly thinking about new innovative ideas, but you can’t get them scribble them out fast enough? I’ve actually been using the talk to text feature on my phone lately, and I seem to be able to capture my ideas better.

Where Guilt relates to how our actions impact others, Shame relates to how we view ourselves. Shame destroys our joy and doesn’t have a place in our lives. 💗
▪️On Finding Joy 
2) Remove all traces of Shame
💗
Shame tells us: “You’re not worthy.” “You’re not good enough.” “You’re not forgiven.” “You deserve to be alone.” “You’re not loved.” “You’re not beautiful.” “You’re a terrible mom.” Shame is filled with lies. And it’s rooted in fear. 💗
Fear tells us we can’t believe the truth—that we ARE worthy, good enough, forgiven, made for relationship, loved and beautiful. Fear steals our joy and tells us to continue suffering on the inside. 💗
One of my all-time favorite songs is “Fear is a Liar” by Zach Williams: 
Fear, he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
'Cause fear he is a liar
💗
What fears are stealing your joy? What lies do you need to remove today? Remember not to let the lies creep inside. Remove all traces of shame and choose joy today! 💗Happy Monday!

Monday 🍂
-
I’m back! Last week was crazy hectic with the close of the school week and prepping to drive home for Thanksgiving break.
-
But I survived and now I can enjoy a relaxing week with family and friends 😊
-
I’m afraid I didn’t do much #nanowrimo work last week but I’ve hit it hard this weekend and I’m nearly caught up on the 10K I fell behind on.
-
I’m only 5K from 50K and only 35K to go till I meet my goal! How’s your NaNo going?

"Lyrically, Paolini has sharpened the edges of her introspection. The dynamic between her moody, self-deprecating lyrics and her self-proclaimed “lullaby pop" melodies make even the most melancholic observations something to sing along to while you’re washing the dishes." I reviewed @chelsea_pow new EP "Medicine Cabinet" on my blog. Read about it and let your anxieties flourish in pop sensibilities. (Link in bio)

I just love the written word.

I always have. Even in those phases where I don't have the time or the bandwidth to invest in it, it's always there, ready to take me away. To give me perspective, understanding, an adventure.

I know myself because of the stories I've read and the ones I've written.

That's pretty powerful stuff. How could you not love the written word?? #writelife #writersofinstagram #bookish #novelist #writerslife #fiction #fictionwriter #bookish #amwriting #writechat #author #writer #writersofig #lifeofawriter #creativeunderground #authorlife #bookstagram #amreading
