Affirmations are everywhere in this Pandemic. Everyone talks about self care and self love, but let’s talk about you and me. Recently, I signed up for a workshop. I get work back from the workshop and it was a critique and then, they wanted money for me to attend the workshop. Now I know my … Continue reading Everything About You Matters
This is probably the umpteenth blog about this stupid pandemic and working, but here goes: This is your time to shine. Last week (or week before), my mom came to town. One thing led to another and as we were talking she said, "So, I asked her-is this all you've done in three months?" I … Continue reading Time to Shine
When all this pandemic madness started, I was excited. (I'm not gonna lie) I thought that I could write everyday and that I would have soooo much free time. I could read books I checked out of the library, watch movies I'd been meaning to watch and generally catch up on my life. Instead, I … Continue reading Here We Are…at home
I hear phrases like “write what you know” or “write what you want to read”...what happens when you feel like you don’t know much about what you want to write? One example, I love to read short stories but a book has got to start off with a huge BANG or I'm not interested. I've … Continue reading This is for YOU

Black folks are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Ugh, I'm sorry I haven't posted in awhile. All this COVID-19 is too much. I've been trying to pull it together and actually write, because there is nothing better than having a full day of writing. What I did not count was having my teen with me all day-even though she's self sufficient, single mommy … Continue reading The New Normal
Last day at Borderlands.... I went upstairs and saw the continental breakfast was the sexiest and hottest thing I'd ever seen. Turkey sausage, homemade waffles, fresh fruit and my dilly ass was eating donut holes in my hotel room, packing. Consider this a learning experience. We meet in the room and have to share our … Continue reading Let’s Wrap This Up (aka Borderlands 3)
Headed into Day Two of Borderlands with a binder full of interesting stories that I have read and given a decent critique. This is how it goes: We were given a schedule on Friday along with a number and a small piece of paper with a sentence. Based on the numbers, we were to go … Continue reading Borderlands (part 2)
From January 24-26, I was a grunt. Let me elaborate. I attended the Borderlands Boot Camp in Baltimore, Maryland. I was selected. I’m not gonna lie, initially, I was the black dot in the snow. But, it didn’t bother me. I’m used to being an anomaly. I do need to put the brakes on though...or … Continue reading Borderlands Boot Camp
