Second Thoughts?

Good Evening! How’s it going? I hope to find each of you doing well. I’ve been busy trying to play catch up after my move. Now that things are beginning to settle, I’ve had a little time to reflect on my writing projects.

I have to be honest and say that I’ve been having second thoughts about one of the two stories that I’m working on. The Chronicles of Neffie isn’t one of them. I don’t know what to think of such troublesome thoughts except to say that I’m going to go forward any way with writing it. I can’t stop now nor will I share much about it at this point in time.

I knew this one would take a lot out of me, I just knew it, but I have to stick with it. I don’t like starting something and not finishing it.

Oh brother, here we gooooooooo!

Until next time…

My First Big Move

Good Evening Good People! I hope that everyone is doing well. Quite a bit has happened since my last post, but for the most part, it has been good. Grateful and thankful for that.

I was offered another job a few states away and I’m trying to get settled. Moving is always hectic but when you are moving by yourself, it’s cha-cha-chaotic! Adding to that, my writing had to be put on hold because I’m still trying to get situated and settled. It’s been two weeks already, sheesh!

I can’t wait to get back to my writing but first, I have to work on my swollen feet. Running up and down my stairs to move and driving for hours a few states away has taken a toll on my little feet. My feet ain’t NEVA been this swollen…

This writer hopes to be back in another month with some more good news so stay tuned.

Whatever it is you are aspiring to do, I sincerely hope that it happens for you.

Until next time…

Somewhat of a Biography

I am about to embark on something that will challenge me as a person and as a writer. It will take me to new depths, depths that I am a little hesitant to travel. Am I nervous or afraid? A little. Will such feelings stop me from doing what I am about to do? Not a chance.

If the end result will help others, then what I am about to do will be worth it. Sometimes we have to do things that are a little outside of our comfort zone to help others. For me, that includes my writings.

This next piece of written work is going to take a lot out of me. I will see you back here in a few months.

Until next time…

Quirky and Inspirational

I was looking for some quirky inspirational drawings and I stumbled across three I liked. These are guaranteed to make you smile and I wanted to share them with my fellow aspiring writers and bookworms. 🤗

Kudos to the the creative minds behind these. 😉 Now that’s what I call creative inspiration.

Until next time, keep reading and keep writing! 📖

When a Story Is More Than a Story

I’m currently working on a few writing projects and one of them is really tugging at me. Why? Because it’s personal and that’s all I’ll say. I already have a title for this particular story and an idea for the book cover design, but I don’t know if I’ll ever publish it.

I don’t know if I’m ready to share such a story and I’m being serious when I say that. One things for sure: Putting it all down on paper brought me a measure of peace. In other words, writing it all down made me feel better.

Imagine that. Pen strokes and some raggedy pieces of paper was all I needed to relieve years of…

Yeah, I’ll just end it right there.

Until next time…

Too Funny

A few weeks ago, I was trying to figure out the brand name of my favorite doll. I needed to know it for an upcoming Q&A, but for some reason, I couldn’t remember the type of doll she was. I knew that the doll resembled a Black stuffed doll and had a little baby in her arms, but that was it.

Soooooooo, I texted my Mom to see if she remembered and her response was absolutely hilarious. My Mom is one of those people who says what she thinks. Most of the time she’s not trying to be funny, but she is. I love it! My Mom doesn’t care for texting, but check out her reply. She inserts the best emojis. 😂

The good news is that my oldest sister remembered the brand name and when I goggled it, she popped right up! She was a Hugga Bunch doll.

I had the cutest name for her, but I won’t reveal her name here until after my Q&A. When I texted my Mom the picture she said, “Yeah, that’s it.” Mom was right, she did have a big head and a little baby in her arms!

Mom, you are so awesome!

Until next time…
