My News Years post is up early on ✨ wayward piggy.com ✨ Read a stream of consciousness type essay about current events, personal milestones & whatever else. I’ve struggled to write this way since 2016, when my brain was temporarily turned to scrambled eggs, so I’m weirdly proud of this one. Anyway — I hope it makes sense to more people than just me! 🧤 Happy Holidays, everyone! 🥂✨ In spite of everything, I hope you found a little bit of happiness in #2017 💙 @waywardpiggy (link is in bio!) ✨

People sometimes ask me how I come up with my novel ideas. #amwriting #writers

For the longest time in my active addictions, I would always find a way to justify why I didn’t have a problem. I was suffering from a classic case of being a high functioning person with a substance problem. I was able to manage my life and my addictions in conjunction with each other for a very long time.
-
I paid my bills.
I went to work.
I went to the gym.
I handled my things around the house.
It helps me be better at ______.
It was just on the weekends (until it wasn’t).
It’s my only vice.
I can stop when I want to.
I’m fine.
I don’t have a problem.
-
The only thing I was overlooking was that while I may have been able to continue on with a façade of a normal life, on the inside I was crippled with anxiety, depression and the farther along I went, the more control my addictions had over me.
-
I couldn’t manage to have a drink without doing coke. It had become a built in go-to as soon as alcohol hit my lips. A habit had formed and not only that, but a major internal dialogue also came along with it that would shame and guilt me to feel like a loser every time I would come down from the highs of alcohol & drugs.
-
The problem with being a high functioning person who is misusing alcohol or addicted to any substance is that we think we have everything under control. We are often fooled into our habits for much longer by thinking a habit is not a habit because it’s not affecting us “like everyone else.”
-
We don’t fit the bill of the addicts we see on TV and in movies. We aren’t “junkies.” We aren’t stealing things. We don't have the shakes. We're not drinking vodka in the morning. We are still handling our responsibilities in life, for the most part.
-
So we continue. We justify. We make excuses.
-
I think it’s important we start having conversations about addiction that shine a light on the fact that so many people are facing these monsters and aren’t doing anything about it while denying the problem because they haven't "hit rock bottom."
-
That's what we're talking about today in the Bloom Club - Why You Don't Need to Hit Rock Bottom to Get Sober. Join us at www.TheBloomClub.com & get access to the private tribe as well as all our past classes. 🌷💙

after seven years, I've FINALLY purchased a brand new laptop. Meet Calliope -- named for my favorite of the Ancient Greek nine muses, because this MacBook is about to be the place where I do all my writing, & I feel VERY inspired ✨

about me🗺️

When I Have A One-Way Ticket

I breathe I live
when I have a one-way ticket
fuck, I am addicted
I breathe I live
when my heart escalates to the highest pitch of its beautiful anxiety on my way to the airport
fuck, I am so addicted
I breathe I live
when I am about to jump into an unknown, untried, untested and unfelt space of new smells, fragrances, eyelashes, fingers, languages, geographical whimsical titles, wild dance of taste buds, the touch of new bodies, new flirts, new ballet pas of thighs and the stories buried in stones, iron, wood and water, the mysteries of landscapes
So so addicted, fuck
I breathe I live
and I fling and
flip like a big ripen olive in the mouth of a hairy insatiable Italian
when my passport is rewarded with a new “bye” stamp
I breathe I live
I am a vikingess
all brave
all fierce all adrenaline pumped
when my back leans against a plane seat and the belt slithers playfully around my restless waist
I breathe I live
when I turn small and I don’t belong to the mother Earth
as the plane takes me above and beyond white transparent clouds-liers
I breathe I live
when my heart acrobats the incredible circus tricks foretasting
my first moments on a new land and a new life among utter strangers
I breathe I live
because I don’t feel any more
that my life is ordinary
when this untamed “extra” prefix rushes into my consciousness cave and forever seizes this shivery “-ordinary” root word
I breathe I live
when my list of new wanted flights is growing adventurously
when I feel like it’s time
again
to start drawing and writing about a new heroine, her fire, dreams, recherché desires, confused strolls inside others’ hearts and sentiments on her flaming flamingo skin
I am but a daredevil tumbleweed
In this life prairie of travel dreams!
Svetlana Fedorova

Three projects set to release next year—including a novella from the WSBO world (hint: Sera)! So proud of these books, guys, and I can’t wait to share them with you all. 🖤

PS: No, this list does not include the “dark book” I’ve only recently shared a snippet of, lol. Frankly, I’m not sure I’ll ever publish that one. 🖤

Caution: indulging in this wine may cause plunging self-doubt, lack of interest in plot lines that previously interested you, and hour-long Twitter blackouts. Consult your editor prior to consuming.

The embedded #poem within this narrative 'Black Ocean' is extracted from the book I'm #writing! ❤️ I've given myself the goal to finish the first draft by the end of this month 😅
