3. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.


Q1. WHAT I’M am I WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT?

Currently, for the entire month of April, I am following (http://www.napowrimo.net/ )  National Poetry Writing Month.My goal is to post a bit of poetry daily for 30 days. I am also working on my first (ever) fictional novel, “Churched-Out” (in the rewrite stages) I have yet to post any excerpts from this fictional story. Hopefully, when the time is right, I’ll bring my blog deeper in the fictional zone of more story-telling, with this Book. I am currently recording  Poetry and its the most scariest and exciting thing to do on a weekly base. As I present my work to several platforms of Jazz and Traditional Church, along with Historical Sites.In other words, a sista can use some sleep…

Q2. HOW DOES MY WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS IN MY GENRE?

Welp at heart, I’m a southern girl, who likes good food, jazz, blues and gospel. As a result, I like the sound of ink on paper. I like abstract poetry and clean drama. I gotta get my feelings out! My work is from a womanist perspective, in which I reference my own struggles. I like to re-tell old stories and bring certain levels of passion in my work. Most importantly, I try to keep it short!

I  don’t have a whole lot of time, so I gotta make this writing thing quick,  life happens.i.e.(kids,cooking,cleaning,church, me-time )

Q3. WHY DO I WRITE OR CREATE WHAT I DO?

I write because at the end of the day; maybe I want to let loose or moon-somebody. I could never pull that off real-life, so I write to see me. I create Poetry to feel humanity. The ups and downs (on the wagon off the wagon)

I want to stay happy and writing can get me happy…

Q4. HOW DOES MY WRITING/CREATIVE PROCESS WORK?

This process for me works after meditation or a good steamy shower. Most times, if I could write naked, I would. (laughing out loud- because I just told on myself) Although it appears, when the moon and I are up together, I can just flow. My writing process works when I’m honest with myself. ( like talking in the mirror) Then that space is clear and I can create.


*4. Compose a one time post:

I was given the date April 6, 2015, Here I am!
