I have received some criticisms, at times, for my long sentences. A lot of them don't make it to print because of the good advice and guidance of the proof-readers and editor in my life. But clearly I am but an amateur, and it's heroes like this that inspire me to write ever longer sentences, until the day where the period itself is but a half-remembered dream. . . . . . #FridayReads #amreading #wow #writerslife #themoreyouknow #muse #writer #author #indieauthor #mystery #paranormal #storyteller #igwriters #igreads #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram

Since we’ve moved into this house I have documented this light, enamoured by it. . Or perhaps it is the shadows I am drawn to. . Or the contrast between the two. The mystery of what hides in dark spaces, juxtaposed against the transparency of what reveals itself in shocks of light. . Much like I am drawn to humans who have a darkness in them. People who possess pockets of deep pain, who harbour secrets that hide in shadows. These are the people who also tend to shine the brightest. Who seek the light and reveal themselves there. These are the authentic ones. Who feel deeply. Who love until it hurts. Who cry until blood vessels break in their eyes. Who laugh until they can’t breathe. . The ones most like myself. . And it is in appreciating how much I love this contrast in images, in mornings, in fellow humans, that I will eventually begin to love the light and the dark within myself. . . It’s been a rough bit of time friends. I’ve been taking refuge in the dark. It is time now to seek the light once more. . Namaste. And happy Friday. 🙏🏻. . . . #lets_be_vulnerable #indieauthor #writersofig #plantstagram

"How did you get into writing erotica?" someone asked. 🍒 Some years ago I read in Huffington Post about these two women who were writing dinosaur erotica (in which, basically, people are being snatched by dinosaurs but instead of getting eaten, they, somehow, end up having sex with the dinosaur) and that they were making a good living at it, and I started reading about insect mating practices, and I wrote my first ever erotica stories which were insect erotica stories and published them on Amazon but they were quickly banned from Amazon because...I really have no idea why, but I imagine because writing about a woman scientist - DOCTOR BETTY, hahahahaha - inventing a potion that makes you small and then testing the potion on herself and becoming really tiny and then, for some reason, spraying some insect pheromones on herself - contrivance, because I had to figure out a way for insects to be attracted to her, otherwise why would a good looking praying mantis be interested in Doctor Betty? - and venturing in the botanical garden among the insects who from the start can't resist mating with her because she's wearing the pheromone spray and nothing else and her, enjoying this experience and repeating it over and over again in the interest of science, she tells herself, but let's face it, she really likes how the bees and butterflies do it, is a bit over the top. 🤷‍♀️Some people have no sense of humor. Or don't believe in science. 🍒 Those stories are now at my bookstore, btw. I think they are funny, and I like Doctor Betty. Not many people have that kind of spirit of adventure, or dedication to science. 🍒 And here’s me wearing more clothes than Doctor Betty. 😁 #mistymacallister #indieauthor #authorsofig #nobraday #nobraclub #mycalvins #ckunderwear #calvinklein
