I don’t have #climatestrike news, but I am feeling the love for the planet and the power of #change. In my little corner of the world there was this little announcement today, which also made me happy 🙂

Alright. I'm here now. In Lincoln. Watching the stars twinkling in a dark sky over a historic city line from my new home.

It's been a bizarre week. Ups and downs and stress and amazing happy laughter and fun stuff. I feel super happy.

I haven't started my actual classes yet, nor have I joined any societies (yet), but I am starting to feel a sense of belonging and routine already.

I can walk around town and know pretty well where everything is without a map, and I can also open doors without struggling for ten minutes (this is a legitimate reason to why I was late to uni for the first three days lol. Doors are different here). I miss specific things about Finland, and maybe it doesn't help that me and my Finnish friend spend lots of time ranting about how locks are better in Finland, or how Finnish traffic laws are superior, or just basically complaining about the utterly shameful lack of dish drying cabinets here (it's the best Finnish invention, look it up). Some cultural differences are also starting to really scream at me and at times I'm super frustrated because I have to spend this extra energy on trying to understand why people around me do the things they do and why the heck there aren't any white stripes in the road to tell me where I can cross without dying!! I've nearly gotten crushed by a car so many times now because nothing makes sense and I don't feel safe when I'm walking outside and it's frustrating!

But laughs aside, I'm doing wonderfully. I love this beautiful place. I'm super happy that I can be here. Super happy that some force in the universe pushed me to come to Lincoln despite my initial wish to go to Denmark. Sometimes things go wrong so they can go right.

I feel like this is right. (Although I hope that it won't take too long to adjust to all these new norms.) Hope your week has been amaaazing ✌️💕

Who else talks with their hands? 👋🏼 I loved teaching today on “How to Host a Successful Live Event.” I was an event planner before I became a mama, so in-person events where people connect and actually talk face-to-face is my jam! That’s just one reason why I created @collabconference ... to gather women and help them connect while pursuing their dreams and passions.

What about you? Are you a live event fan or an online fan?

Happy Friday! Happy weekend!✨
.
Was this week interminably long for everyone else or was it just me??
.
QOTD: do you use “said” exclusively? Or do you use other action verbs as dialogue tags (asked, replied, advised, etc.) There seems to be two schools of thought on this: some say to ONLY use “said”, others say to use it sparingly in conjunction with more descriptive verbs. What do you guys think? What do you do in your writing?

Typing THE END of a manuscript must be what it feels like to cross the finish line of a marathon you’ve been training months for. It’s a miracle every time.
🌞
I just finished writing my first draft of the sequel to BONE CRIER’S MOON! It’s now in the hands of my very capable editor.
🌞
I drafted this story around some intense times for my family: my daughter’s tonsillectomy, my son’s dental surgery, my husband’s dental surgery, my father-in-law’s open heart surgery, my daughter starting college, my son starting high school, and some very tough financial struggles for my family.
🌞
Around that, I managed to write this story in three months—the fasted I’ve ever drafted. And miraculously, I feel like it’s really well written. Even more miraculously, I truly enjoyed writing this book, despite my “real life” roadblocks.
🌞
So how did I do it? Some things I can point to. Others are harder to articulate, but I’ll try.
🌞
Before drafting, I had a solid plot in place, a synopsis I’d revised with my editor, and a detailed chapter by chapter outline. This really helped my speed and prevented writer’s block.
🌞
I’ve always been a heavy plotter, though, so that wasn’t what made writing enjoyable during a highly stressful time. Somehow I was finally able to let writing be my release, instead of another to-do checkbox on my massive list—and the thing that’s by far the most time-consuming for me.
🌞
In the past, tight deadlines and the pressure to write an amazing book under contract have paralyzed me, even caused significant meltdowns. I’m finally learning, by experience, that the work will get done, and that it doesn’t have to be perfect the first time (or any time). I’m learning how to feel alone with my story and compartmentalize the outside pressures. I’m channeling my stress into making better art and using it like a tool.
🌞
Also, being super real here, I’m learning not to be ashamed that I have to take antidepressants to cope with my mental struggles. I’ve been taking them for a few years, but now I’ve found the best medicine for me. I’m also learning how to trust in God more and believe He’ll take care of me and my family.
🌞
Now it’s time to celebrate!

Letting the signatures on these two prints dry before I send them off to their new home. I have both of them above my writing desk and they keep me meeting my word count.  What writer should I add next to my "Literary Ladies" series?
