That’s a wrap! 3-5-21
It’s Friday! Huzzah 🙌🏾 Another week down. We did it.
Lots of story and project ideas popped up for me this week. I wrote them down and started on one I’m extremely excited about!
The urgency to create and produce has come upon me in such a way this week. It’s flared my anxiety with time. There’s never enough time it seems. The What Ifs started knocking at me. Then the doubts. #TheStruggleIsReal😔
Somehow I keep on keeping on. Maybe that’s why I’m so proud of my work. Maybe that’s why I cant shut my mouth about this poetry collection. Writing was just a thought one day in Mrs. Ramey’s English class. Now it’s a way to say something, feel, represent! #WritingIsTheWay #WritingIsEverything
Event scheduling continues for This is Not About Love #TINAL. I GOT CONFIRMATION this week that a writer/creator I absolutely adore and respect will host me in conversation. I feel so honored that they are making time for me and my collection of poems! More details on who and when coming soon but it’s 🤫 for now.
This week also had me thinking about writing advice and information. I enjoy talking about writing, process, and the act of creating. I don’t necessarily like the way people try to take advice as one-size-fits-all gospel. I do feel like I have some fresh thoughts on writing so I’m going to roll out some videos soon to share those thoughts. 👍🏾
That’s it for the week! I hope you all get to do something fun this weekend. Eat something really delicious and take a nap. 💜
