My first blog post… Please read

I am starting this as a place to express myself freely without reservations, filters, censorship or rose colored glasses.

To speak MY truths that only I feel. I will tell my stories of my past, present, and future. Talking about my hopes & dreams for my future with all the good, bad and ugly that comes along with it, while also sharing with you my creative journeys with music and storybook writing.

I can’t pretend that at some point, someone will read my entries and they won’t be offend, hurt, shocked, amazed, amused, angered or more… because not everyone will agree with or understand what I have to say. We are all different with our own opinions, thoughts and feelings. This world is HUGE. There are tens, hundreds, thousands, millions… 7.6 billion people in the world as of October 2017. So if you read anything I have to say on my personal blog and take offense with what I have to say…. Sorry not sorry.

So… welcome to my journey. It will be a colorful ride, full of twists and turns along the way, to keep you wondering “What will I learn about Ivy in her next post?”

Stay tuned…

xoxo Ivy

Employee Jokes Part 5

Why can’t a fast cat commit to a relationship?

Because it’s a cheetah! 🤣

Unsure Heart – A Poem

Love

Something that suggests happiness

To have you smiling from ear to ear.

But what happens when the path isn’t really clear.

Future

You see it’s there but it’s fogged up

The glass is dirty but no one making the effort to clean

When feelings start to go astray by being made to wait.

My heart it breaks as each moment passes.

Partnership

Am I not good enough.

Are we not strong enough?

Is there not enough love which prevents you from making that promise?

Writing Part 10: Inspiration 💕

Hey everyone!

So, I stumbled across this gorgeous photo last week and it inspired me to write a bunch this weekend. It’s amazing how a single image can take your breath away and set your imagination soaring! Literally… 7,000 words written and I could have kept going if it wasn’t for needing sleep or go to work.

*huffs… rolls eyes… sighs*

So I wanted to share it with you all!

💜 Do you ever get inspired to write by a single image? 💜

Writing Part 9: New Update… I’m back!

Hey guys! I’m back! 🎉 I took a little break from my IG to get my mind refocused in writing. I had a pretty awesome weekend working on my first WIP and knocking out just shy of 7k words! I’m pretty stoked for my progress. I may even squeeze in a little more writing tonight for my second book. ☺️ Hoping you all are having a phenomenal day!! I’ll be updating again soon 💜

My Energy Source – A Poems

You brighten me up like the sun

I feel you surging through me

The source of my energy

Quickly you can defeat me

Holding my light in your hands

Easily you’re able to dim me

But you hold me so close

Always protecting me

Writing Part 8: Another Mini Update

Hey guys! ☺️

I had to post this quote as it pretty much sums me up!!

So far this week has been a pretty productive on accomplishing my weekly goals!

📚Already I’ve read 2 books, posted 2 blog posts and I’m at about 4K words written.

I do have to try to hammer out some more writing so I can meet that 7k words for the week! But I’m getting there!! Also, I have two books to read that I’m a Beta & Arc reader for two different authors. Oh, did I mention I’m going out tonight for one of my best friends birthdays!

Ahhhh!! So busy!!

But, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

💜 #QUESTION – Did you set goals for the week and if you did, what’s your progress? 💜

I’ll post my final update of how my week ended Sunday. 💋

Addiction to books!

💁🏼‍♀️How my #Kindle feels EVERYTIME I buy a new book because I stumbled across an author promoting their book and I JUST HAD TO BUY IT.

📚As if I didn’t already have enough books to read!!

I’m not mad because to me, reading is my way to escape reality and be a fly on the wall of someone else’s world. 💜

Plus, I strongly believe in supporting #indieauthors as they are kicking ass and taking names!

I hope one day I’ll be right there with them with the WIPs I’m working on…

Till then, I’ll be loading my kindle up with some steamy, yummy and naughty ADULT BOOKS!! 💜🔥💦 🤤 Specifically… Reverse Harem / Whychoose novels! Hehehe

See below what’s currently sitting in my Kindle to be read, currently reading or has been read!

Though, I’ll admit that some I’ve read are still showing I’m still reading it because I use my kindle app on two of my phones as well as my actual Kindle.

Also… Duplicates are because I was an Arc Reader for those books.

If you have any questions about any of the above books or have any other book recommendations, I’m always open to more!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!!!

Writing Part 7: This Weeks Goals

Good morning everyone! 💜

Happy Monday!

💁🏼‍♀️This week, I’ve set some goals for myself that I’d love to meet!

📝Ideally I’d like to write 1,000 words a day and 7,000 words for the week. If I can write then that would be a bonus!

📚I’d also like to read two books this week, as reading always keeps my inspirations flowing.

👩🏼‍💻Lastly! I would like to post at least three times on my blog! All attainable goals which I’m excited to achieve!

⁉️ #Questions: Anyone have any #BookReccomendations for this week? Do you have any #goals this week you’re trying to accomplish?⁉️

Thanks again everyone for following my journey!

Writing Part 6: Sunday’s Word Count 🤯

Last update for the weekend! 💜

📝Happy to end the day with 2,651 words written today!

Honestly, I’m pretty proud of myself for meeting and surpassing the goal I set forth for myself earlier today. As well as the direction and flow I’ve put down on paper as well.

⁉️#QUESTION FOR WRITERS: Do you have any rituals that you have to help spark your inspiration and creativity?⁉️

I’m always curious to see what works for others to see if I can maybe pull from those that have been successful at it.

Thanks again everyone! Till next time xo

Let Yourself Create – A Poem

Inspiration can strike

In far out places

Whether pulling from experience

Or from imagination

Let the thoughts flow

However it may

Don’t stop yourself from feeling

And letting yourself escape

Beauty will blossom

As your emotions are arranged

Into a masterpiece of visions

That come from within.

Writing Part 5: Sunday Vibes & WIP Progress

Hey guys,

Happy Sunday to you all! 💜 I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend so far.

Wanted to give you all another mini update on what’s going on as it’s been pretty eventful!

📝 Today I started off focusing on my second WIP. The story has come to me a little easier than the first. So much so that I’ve outlined the first book as well as the series set up for the other books for it.

This then sparked some ideas for my other book as it has more complex storylines, which to be honest has slowed the process down… If I’m going to be honest though, I don’t want to rush my work and have a shitty product when I can take my time to create the needed layers to create a masterpiece!!

I’m pretty excited for my progress. I’m even more excited knowing I still have a full day ahead of me to write and do a little more research!

MyGoal – Hoping to knock out 1k Words! I think I can do it with all this inspiration flowing. ☺️

⁉️#QUESTION FOR WRITERS: Do you map out your stories before you write them or do you write it as the inspiration comes and rework it later? ⁉️

💜Thanks again for checking in with me and my writing progress! I hope you all have a fantastic rest of your day. 💜

Xoxo 💋

Writing Part 4: WIP Progress & Word Counts

Hey everyone! 🙋🏼‍♀️

Here’s my word count tracking for the rest of the week. Not as much writing as I would have liked. However, I still feel that a lot of progress made!

I’ve decided to dive a little deeper into my world building for the two books I’m writing. Figuring out The geography, types of people, civilization, technology/weapons & magic, economy and politics. It’s an exciting process! With both being a series, I want to make sure the worlds feel real to keep the reader engaged.

Have you ever took a day and did #worldbuilding for your books? Has it helped make your world more believable? 🤔

Anywho! Hoping to get some writing done this weekend as ideas after yesterday’s world building was definitely inspiring!! 💜

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
