She also gives useful tips for seeking legal advice, especially when it comes to the fineprint. If in doubt, don't make a wild guess and definitely don't sign anything!

A very belated photo of my Holloween costume for the Princess cruise Halloween parade.

Do you admire Ariel or Ursula? An interesting villain can hook me into a story.

Creativity isn’t something you’re born with. It’s something you practice.
Here’s an exercise for practicing creativity from lifelong writer, Andy Le Peau, from his new book, ‘Write Better.’

‪Over halfway done with #NaNoWriMo! So far I've managed to keep up on my word-count, which is both surprising and awesome! But I'm so ready to be done being creative after doing both #Inktober and NaNo. ...plus my Hershey's kisses are almost gone. ‪How is everyone else doing?‬

Are you struggling in the messy middle of National Novel Writing Month, or some other huge, seemingly impossible goal?
.
I know it can be overwhelming. and tempting to put it off or give up all together. Here are a few tips to help you move past that:
.
1. Focus in on the goal daily. Know both your definition of success and when the project is due. Be specific. Forget what happened yesterday, and reevaluate how much time you have left, and what needs to be done.
.
2. Get started. Something is better than nothing. often it's the getting started that is the hard part. You can plan your next scene or workout while doing chores. I often find just the act of getting started is enough to create some inertia to keep going. So you need to write 50,000 words but only have 30 minutes? Cranking out 500 words in 30 minutes today is 500 words you don't have to worry about tomorrow.
.
3. Get an accountability partner. Ideally you want someone equally adept at encouraging you and kicking you in the rear. Perhaps somehow knows just enough about your project to listen and brainstorm, but not enough to tell you how to do it. This is your project after all.
.
Want to know more? Head to http://kathrynmcclatchy.com/2019/08/15/updates-5-productivity-tips/ or set up a coaching consultation with me at https://TalkWithKathryn.as.me/ and I’ll help you out!

When in doubt . . . push it. Whether it's a bit of dialogue, a plot point, or something about your character, don't be afraid to stir the pot. (Even if you're a conflict adverse person like me!) . 
I love this quote from my life coach, Mindy Kaling, which kind of reinforces that notion: "I just have my characters say my controversial opinions and then hide behind them." .
Let's do some stirring with our writing this Monday. ;)

Today's prompt - SOMETHING THAT I MISS

There are lots of things I miss and even though today's prompt says one, I will write as much as I can.

I miss writing every day.
A time in the past when I first began to write, I wrote almost every day. They were mostly fictions and I never realized how much demons writing helped me scare away until I began to go days without writing.
Writing was my safe place. If I was ever having a hard time at a moment or at letting something go, I would put it in a story, create a 'me-like' character and put all of the burdens on him/her and I would feel much better afterward.
Writing is still a safe place.

I miss being a kid.
I spent my childhood dreaming of growing into an adult. An adult enough to grow breasts, pubic hairs, and talk about boys, know a lot of other interesting things and have my period.
No, I don't miss having a flat chest or talking about boys and the vagina just with myself when I am alone because I am too scared I would be thought corrupt, I miss not having my periods.  Now when I get the premenstrual syndrome, I prepare for seven days of bleeding with severe cramps in the first three-to-four days of the bleeding.

I miss thinking that everything is possible. I miss deciding what I want to be when I grow up and changing my mind.
My Parents wanted me to be a medical doctor. I began to want same for myself too until my fifth year in secondary school. I realized I wanted something different - to sing. And so, I would later begin to go to celebration gatherings to perform until one morning when I woke up and realized I wanted to tell stories.

I miss having fights with people, my friends especially, and not waiting for apologies before becoming friends again. Now everyone is grown. Everyone is right and everyone demands an apology.

I miss the second boy I ever liked. He was older. Very fine and he called me 'Nwunye Emma' and when no one was looking and it was just the two of us, he would call me, 'Nwunyem.'
We met at the motor park where...

@author_leslie speaking facts! Never knew how much I needed this reminder until I read it. 🙌🏾🙌🏾 Growing up I wrote urban fiction in high school. I would read so many urban fiction books WEEKLY since middle school!! It was my favorite genre!! Since I've "grown up", I left my inner child behind and forgot the love I have for urban fiction. Thank God for Authors who can bring you back to your roots. Much appreciation @author_leslie 🙏🏾 Oan, go check out her page and also the awesome t-shirts she offers!!! I received my t-shirt a short while ago but can't wear it yet. 😫 I'm pledging right now and we can't wear certain colors until after. But I love my shirt and can't wait to rock it!!!

Benefits of Being an Independent Fiction Author

Are you considering being an independent fiction writer? There are many benefits of writing, editing, formatting and promoting your own fiction novels. The biggest benefit is that you are in complete control and do not have to answer to anyone else, except perhaps your readers and fans.  #indieauthor #writer #bookstagram #writing #writersofinstagram #books #writingcommunity #writingtips #author #amwriting #bookwriting #poetry #jennaececelia #writers #writerscommunity #authorscommunity #authorsgram #authortips #bookinwriting #bookshelfs #fantasy #indienovel #indiewriter #magic #novelinwriting #novelist #nownovel #otpprompts #quotes #quotestoliveby

“Ben Hur,” adapted by Karl Tunberg from the 1880 novel by Lew Wallace, was the highest-grossing film of 1959 and continues to be one of three films tied for the winningest at the Academy Awards with 11 Oscars (it was nominated for 12 of 15 categories that year). Four more writers were brought in to tone down the “too-modern” dialogue in later drafts, including playwright Maxwell Anderson, playwright S.N. Behrman, writer Gore Vidal, and poet and playwright Christopher Fry. More than 12 versions of the script were written before it was finalized at an epic 230 pages. ⠀

I have lost work and actually broke down and cried. My dad got so annoyed at my laptop because he tried to recover it for me and couldn't. .

I have lost work and actually broke down and cried. My dad got so annoyed at my laptop because he tried to recover it for me and couldn't. . World ending feelings 😭 .

For the nanoers, you've hit the half way point. If you're losing steam or don't think you can finish, here's some tips to help you keep going. And remember, developing the habit of writing daily is more important than hitting 50k words in a month. If you can't win, just write every day, even a little bit.⠀

Just curious: does anyone read captions nowadays? I was very active on Instagram when I was 12 or so, but I've been away for so long that I barely know what's "the usual" anymore 😂😂

I did my first shift yesterday!! It was super chill, I'm alive, and I actually feel kind of good about it! I swapped my shift for today though so I don't have to work again until tomorrow 🎉
Day 19 of #mywipnovember2019: If they all had one wish, Anna would wish that she had a pink elephant, Harvey would wish his family didn't own a farm so he didn't have to take over it, and Amaryah would wish for unlimited wishes.

Things I’ve Learned Through Being Copyedited

1. If you ever use a quote from a historical figure, be sure it’s backed up and referenceable, and not one of those faux-aphorisms from one of our eminent misquatables such as Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, Oscar Wilde, or *ahem* Eleanor Roosevelt.

2. There is no default race, and no default gender. You know this. You think your writing and editing knows this too, but there are some things so deeply ingrained in our usage and language that things slip by you. You will find them and fix them as you edit. Then when your editor looks she will find even more. Gratefully and graciously make those corrections, doing all you can to solidify this better usage into new, better habits for the future.

3. Do yourself a favor from the beginning and keep your timeline as loosey-goosey and non-specific as possible. Unless your story does call for a very tight daily calendar, keeping things general instead of using specific numbers or days of the week (again, when possible) will help you more than you realize. For example, you don’t want to send your seventh grade protagonist to math class “three days later” when, after calendrical calculations are complete, “three days later” turns out to be a Sunday. You might think you’re savvy and precise enough to keep it all correct and ordered, but trust me: you’re not. *My editor suggested using changing weather and seasons to signify the passing of larger amounts of time without getting too specific, and it’s a trick I’m going to be keeping in my tool box forever and ever, and I commend it to you.

4. Likely you already have a list of your personal crutch-words that you just love to overuse. The wise writer will have already found and fixed most of those crutch words, but there are going to be more, because that’s just how it goes. Your editor won’t blink, she’ll just take her editorial scissors to those repeating crutch words and pry them from your carpal-tunnel-ridden fingers. Justly so.

These are some of the main personal habits I'm working on from a copyeditorial standpoint. Authors, what other copyedit tips do you have?

Don’t get me wrong. I like being social but only when I’m ready to. 👍🏾⁣
⁣
At social events, I often find myself just daydreaming about the next plot point that I’ll write into my story or recapping the last chapter of something I read. Can you relate? 🤔⁣

I know it may seem like everyone around you is speeding through Nano and you’re just chugging along at a snail’s pace. That’s okay! Take your time. You don’t need to finish your manuscript just because it’s November. Nano for me is just to keep me writing. Most of the time I’m not able to write thousands of words a day. And that’s okay. But I’m writing. Each word adds up. ✨

Be kind to yourself. Take your time. ✨

Expand your mind and pick up a book. There are plenty of other worlds with people and species that live a life just like you and are constantly awaiting your arrival. It’s up to you to sit down and meet them. Whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, a life without reading is one missing out. #ShootHigh

Writing a great character is not something you happen upon in the middle of the woods 🤦‍♀️ To create a 3D character... here's a tip:⠀
⠀
😱👉 How to express your thoughts and ideas in your novel through your characters 👈😱⠀
⠀
1️⃣ Find out what is most important to you / what do you want to share?⠀
(Eg. Love above all else ❤️ family is more than blood 👯‍♀️ friends are evil 😈 food, sleep, dancing, puppy dogs 🐶 etc)⠀
⠀
2️⃣ Find you why these mean so much to you 🤷‍♀️⠀
(Eg. Because you value adorability, because you believe family is the most important thing in the world, because you need food to survive and life is just a game of survival, etc)⠀
⠀
3️⃣ Use what is most important to you and give that to a character (the character does not have to be based off you) 🤴🦸🏼‍♀️🎅🧛‍♀️🧞‍♂️🧚🏼‍♀️⠀
⠀
4️⃣ Take away or destroy what is most important to that character 🤣😈🤣 (evil laughing in my head)⠀
⠀
5️⃣ How does that character react? 😭 How do they feel? 🤢 What do they physically do? ⚔️ What do they emotionally/mentally do? 🔮⠀
⠀
6️⃣ What does that character learn? (This is where you can insert your thoughts and ideas into your story) 👩‍🎓👩‍🏫👩‍💻⠀
⠀
7️⃣ What happens next? (Eg. The character gets back the puppy dog 😆 the character dies of starvation 😵 the character learns that family is not just blood relatives, etc) 😻⠀
⠀
❓What is a major theme in your novel❓⠀
Comment with emojis down below and I'll try to guess!⠀
Mine is: 🔮⚖️🙋‍♀️⠀

I chatted to award winning author of Terra Nullius & The Old Lie, Claire G Coleman at @ubudwritersfest!

She revealed her dream writing project, the challenges of writing a 2nd novel after a hugely successful debut, & we had a lot of laughs. 
Hope you enjoy part 2 of my author interview series, & I'd love to know what questions you would ask if you met an author you admire?

The Old Lie pictured in the cover photo was gifted to me by @hachetteaus .
