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

First and Foremost, Its been two years since I started this blog in (2013) I’d hee-hawed with writing. I got serious and begin to really put in the work. The First-Lady of my Home Church presented the question of blogging my Poetry. Then I realise, my Poetry is worth something.

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.

I am currently recording  Poetry and its the most scariest and exciting thing to do on a weekly bases. 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 a certain level 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 works when I’m honest with myself. I become vulnerable to discover what’s really happening on the inside. ( like talking in the mirror) Then that space is clear and I can create.

Sisters

She took her mind out for a short walk.Along the way,the left brain said to the right.

“They divided us and now we must work together!”

The shadows we boxed ,longing for stillness.Fragmented cavities of uncertainty.

Turning onto Cherry street; ant piles shaped the X sign on the sidewalk.

Little dirty children we use to be.Her spirit whistled like the wind.Her body found new land with skin and algae.Under holy waters she bathed daily.

Erupted tides of new beginnings.

Poet Krissy Mosley
