#swipeleft Check out this poem I wrote. #Writers and #Poets leave me some feedback :) I get better with time but my latest work •The Mixtape Book• is available in my bio.
P.S - Communication is everything!

It warms my heart to get to know there are so many writers around the world! If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Let’s enjoy this journey together📚🎁
I'm not inspired by different author's who keep writing the same cliches in every book. I'm inspired by the works of my real life nightmares and dreamish imagination. I'm the mimdfreak of my own macabree and fantasy.

Tell me about your characters.
Go check out the video on my story on Annie! She’s a character that I’ve been struggling to write recently and one that I’ve kind of pushed to the side. I have a vision for her and I’m trying my best to put that vision on paper. She’s a young girl growing up in a world that is very chaotic. Her look at this is very positive and my goal is to make her a positive person but also make her as real as possible.
Note to self: Give them time.
& experience lessons as their own.
So many times I’ve found myself saying, “If they could just experience _________ ,they would understand where I am coming from.”
& that isn’t true. Every experience is a culmination of past experiences, none of which I can undoubtedly experience and understand, just as they do/did.
Life is messier than that & it’s not as neat as should and shouldn’t.
Truth is, it isn’t my job to help someone understand their own lessons, it’s my job to help them feel less alone through them.
I am only here to learn from someone what they are here to teach me.
I am not in control of their human experience.
// Title Reveal //
Beckett Caden has one wish this year: that his daughter’s Christmas would be as magical as children's holidays were supposed to be.
After two bittersweet December twenty-fifths without his wife, Beckett knows he needs to do something different this year. Listening to his parents’ advice, he takes a break from his executive position at their family-run bookstore chain and decides to take his daughter on a trip. Beckett hopes that a few weeks cocooned in a charming lodge, with a laundry list of fun activities, will be able to restore the smile that used to light up Holly’s eyes.
Through snowman building, city sightseeing, and a constant theme of Christ through the season, he starts to think that he might just get his wish.
What Beckett had *not* wished for? The sarcastic and irritating elf of a woman with hair as boisterous as Santa Clause, himself. But when an unexpected snow storms traps them all inside the building, it’s either work with the Elf or watch the chaos overtake the understaffed inn.
Surviving with the aid of caffeine and prayer, Beckett has a feeling this Christmas will turn out to be one of the most memorable he’s had yet.
Elise McKenzie needs a social life. At least, that's been the constant strum of her family’s vocal chords for the past, oh, all her adult years.
Between her freelancing graphic design work and the volunteering she does at her grandparents’ lodge, she seems to be the only one currently pretty happy with her life. Even if the male she most frequently has deep conversations with is her cat.
As Elise plops on her elf hat and the holiday season gets in full swing, there is a flurry of unsanctioned blind dates (thanks to her *grandmother*), questions about Elise’s future, and a snowfall that will keep her toe-to-toe with the single father whose dimples keep reminding her of the infuriating enjoyment he gets from pushing her buttons.
Elise’s Christmas wish? Survive this season and try not to bonk the obnoxious guest over the head with a gingerbread house.
📚 The novella will (hopefully) be released by the end of this month. Details to come.
