Passionate. Obsessive. Ruthless. And, if I do my job right, not who you'd expect. So - plot twist! - that's all I'll say for now.

I’ve adapted the September #InstaWriMo Challenge to the actual event, so you can tag along on this wild, month-long writing blitz. Check back each day for a new post related to my project and/or process.

‘of the challenges’

When I was very young, my grandfather would give me a dollar to untangle his fishing net. The fishing net was about three car lengths long, so it kept me occupied and heck I was getting a dollar! Occasionally he would check on me and give me some words of wisdom. The first thing I remember him telling me, the best investment you can make is land. “Buy as much as you can- their not making more!”
He could be intimidated so I didn’t bring up Volcanoes & Islands. The other advice he offered was the quote above. One day after telling me a hundred times before, he asked, “Do you understand what I’m telling you Jenny Bell( another day/another story)?!!
No I don’t. He explained, if you think you can’t live without something, you take a walk, alone. You’ll find you were just fine before it came along, same thing goes for losing it. You’ll be just fine after. He was right. ❤️ @lyndi_t @nancy.adams.7 #sagewisdom #wordsofwisdom #poet #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetryporn #wordporn #words #wordstoliveby #womenwhowrite

Panic is an emotion I feel
when the realisation of aging kicks in.
Not because of being oblivion soon,
nor because of 6 feet of ground.
It's just all about every breath inhaled so far,
especially ones that were a total waste of air.

Ever since I was a kid, I have never asked my parents to buy me balloons even though I was fascinated by them. Call me an idealist or a realist, balloons for me, always represented tentativeness, rather than a mere toy. It's beautiful only when there is air inside, making it vulnerable too. Even if nothing pricks it, it won't last forever. Nevertheless, balloons harbour instant gratification which the kid in us never knew and the adult in us never let go.

“Who has forbidden women to engage in private and individual studies? Have they not a rational soul as men do?...I have this inclination to study and if it is evil I am not the one who formed me thus - I was born with it and with it I shall die.” ✍🏼 #mexican #scholar #philosopher #composer & #poet, #sorjuanainésdelacruz was born on November 12th 1648. 📚👩‍🏫📖📚Considered "The Tenth Muse", "The Phoenix of America", & the "Mexican Phoenix", she was respected for her intellect and thirst for knowledge. She was an illegitimate daughter, but learned to read and write Latin when she was 3. By 13 she was teaching Latin to young children, had learned Greek logic and also learned Nahuatl, an Aztec language. She was sent to live with relatives in Mexico City at 8, where her intelligence came to the attention of the viceroy. She was made a lady in waiting at 16. 👸At court she was tested by over 40 scholars. She decided to become a nun due to her “total disinclination to marriage” and her wish “to have no fixed occupation which might curtail my freedom to study.” She believed that women should be educated and was not afraid to write against misogyny. She wrote “Respuesta a Sor Filotea” which has been hailed as the first #feministmanifesto, defending, among other things, a woman's right to education. #shero #herstory #womenshistory #inspiringwomen #womenwhowrite #womenwhowritepoetry #femalewriters #spanishgoldenage #spanishbaroque #feminist #latina #latinamericanhistory #mexicanhistory #feministart #watercolorillustration #shepersisted #femalecomposer #womenwholead #womenempowerment #womenempowerwomen

#throwbacktuesday to one of my favorite people and one of my favorite days. This picture represents so much that I’m #thankful for.
.
.
.
.
.
First, I’m thankful for @mrskimduffy and her friendship. I’m thankful for how she encourages me and challenges me. I’m thankful that she challenged me to get out of my #introvert shell and go to this retreat#. .
.
.
.
.
And this is one of my favorite days because this is the first day I saw my future agent, the lovely and wonderful @cynthiaruchti1994. And I say, ‘the first day I saw her’ because I was too star-struck to walk up and introduce myself despite @mrskimduffy prodding! (Now I am kicking myself!) Although...maybe it’s best I didn’t. A tongue-tied first impression might not have been the best thing. ☺️
.
.
.
.
.
This was also the day that I just ‘happened’ to trade spaces with someone who had been sitting by the very sweet @ruthloganherne who wouldn’t let me be an introvert and who prayed for me, counseled me, and gave me the courage to get out there and query agents.

Sometimes it’s hard to see God working in the present. But when we look back, we can see His invisible hand guiding our path. For that, I am so very thankful.

Hidden by the folliages, dressed by the prayers,
sometimes He hides too, pretends He does not exist..
Like you.
Sometimes you hide, don't you? From the world, from your friends, from those who hurt you, from yourself.. You find the folliages and make a nest to hold your weary soul..
Rest if you must. But do not tarry dear.
The world wants to see you.
And so do you :-)

.
Difficult roads are those less traveled for us, so they open up our view to things we may have never identified within ourselves and the world around us. They teach us that we have more in us than we realized and that we're able to overcome more than we thought possible. They give us greater perspective, lessons, and tools to strengthen ourselves and to help others.
.
Difficult roads teach us what we should value, our potential, our levels of endurance & self-revelation we couldn't learn on easy streets. So look back on difficult roads with gratitude & forward to new ones with expectation
.
A better, stronger, wiser, freer, more focused & successful you is always worth the road it takes to get you there 💛

You may want to please someone, a spouse, lover, boyfriend, girlfriend, parent, friend, but you have to draw the line if it costs you honoring yourself, what you value and what makes your heart tick.

When you guys tell me about synchronicities and miracles life is bringing to you... When you guys start noticing things... When one of you starts sharing their stories...when few of you stand up and talk of causes which disturb you... Ah! It elates me to no ends! And I see you tooo.. Those watching, integrating and processing in the quiets choosing to move away from the matrix.. I see you too. We all are awakening. But to see the real progress stuns me! Keep waking up and keep waking the person next to you. I'm sorry but it's contagious! The world needs you wide awake 👀

Dear Darlings,

I find it amusing how you're always on your mobile, and you just do not have the time for anything or anyone else. And how on those rare occasions that you do look away from your screens, I know that it's mostly because you're both hungry. I'm right aren't I.

Back in my day, when we didn't have gadgets like yours, when our friends weren't available a button press away, we did things differently. Very differently.

I find it haunting, but I also am proud, that my generation will probably be the last one to send or receive hand written letters as a way of communication.

That we are going to be the last one's, who could recognise who had sent us a letter, just based on each others handwriting.

I remember how we used to work hard to make our letters beautiful, using fountain pens, and calligraphy, and encasing them in envelopes that bore our secret seals.

We would work hard to make what we wrote, look just as beautiful as how it would feel when our letters were read.

To tell you the truth, it was, in your lingo, "an experience". I'm writing this letter digitally because that's the only way I can get you two to read it.

But, I do hope that someday, you might want to have a taste of what it means to write till your hand aches, to make a mistake, and not have the backspace button to erase it, to have the bottom of your hand covered in wet ink, because like I said, it is an experience.

Awaiting the day, you two would want an actual experience.

Love,
Your Mother.

Are you a writer?

These were the four words that shook up my life. 5 syllables, 13 characters, one question.

Are you a writer?

This old man, who apparently came out of nowhere, stopped me in my tracks.

I was sitting in a Coffee Bean, typing away on my laptop and writing copy for my newest business when he approached me.

This man had no real reason to say anything to me. My headphones were in; I was in grind mode. Do not disturb.

Are you a writer?

It was as if he were staring into my soul. Who knew that with four words, someone could radically change your life, bring you back to yourself, move you in the right direction?

Are you a writer?

I was so shocked– I pulled out my headphones and looked up at him. “Well…” [from a piece titled “the messenger” -story continued on the blog - link in bio]

MY MOTHER (PART 1/1)
I was 12 years old when he first touched me inappropriately. We were chatting on the steps at the backdoor of our tiny one bedroom house when he ‘playfully’ put his hand inside my blouse and squeezed my fragile, budding, underdeveloped breasts. (It was 4 of us children living with our mother at the time and we were quite happy- until he moved in with us). He laughed while doing it and I cried after, because I knew it was deliberate. I told my mother what he had done that afternoon and was really hoping that she would protect me, dump him and encourage me. But to my surprise, her response was heart wrenching, “he was just playing with you, you know how much he likes to play, his hand must have accidentally brushed your chest.” I was freaking shocked out of my mind. The hurt I felt was deep, as it would be for any young girl. This was her much younger boyfriend, my family’s cool hang out buddy. “He was so hardworking and helpful and such a good fucking good sport, and mind you, he was also MY DAD’s close friend, before he found out that this man was fucking his wife behind closed doors. I was so down. I didn’t know what to do, because if I told my family he was a fucking pedophile, my mother would have turned against me and “oh, I can’t hurt my mom. I can’t disgrace her like that. I can’t let her down, she will be lonely and sad,” is what I convince myself. So, I was all alone- stuck with my thoughts, living in my head every chance I got to be alone. And THIS is the experience that stands out in my head when I see mother- every single time I am around her.

Our first “Salon” was held in my 100 year old sitting room Sunday night. I lit a fire. Burned some dusting candles. And put some mix matched furniture around an old sleigh “table” that I warned everyone might cut their toes. Strangers filed in the door with a fair bit of “what has Kelly gotten us into” feelings. I’m pretty sure someone had a flask. Awkward hello’s ensued. I questioned everything for about two long oh-shit-seconds, but by the third breath I swear it was sudden magic.
.
Our evening was different from a writers group or a bible study or a gallery crawl. I jotted down ideas for this group for about a year before starting it. The vision was that women across stances and beliefs would sit together and share their own creative expressions – painting, writing, storytelling, etc - like a live collaborative studio. The group listens and then asks questions, admires lines, and enjoys inspired conversation.
.
More importantly it’s a place where the elbow-bumping of competitive creativity is replaced with mutually celebrating one another. Which is just what these amazingly talented women did❤️🙌🏼
.
Days before the event, I learned that historically “salons” were gatherings for the exchange of ideas, art, and works of literature that flourished in France in the 17/18th centuries. Women in particular were known for initiating such societies. This time has been labeled the age of conversation. What! I nearly wept. I wanted the idea to be utterly fantastic and learning this made me feel held by a nodding history.
.
My heart is still so stunned by the fact that it actually happened. Strangers met. Laughter rose up. Voices were heard. Readings were shared. Hearts were pierced. All creativity was held with a fierce enjoyment.
.
I can’t wait to throw open my door again to another Salon and gather around the heat of what we’ve made with reverberations of history echoing all around us.
