Supporting the “V” the only way I know how to!

I’m proud to announce that I will be a guest speaker at an upcoming event that is focused on restoring balance, healing naturally and having more fun in the bedroom (sounds like one of my books, huh?)

From Sept. 6-7, I will be a guest speaker at The Happy “V” Summit. This new and liberating online event will hit on all the topics women, and men, are reluctant to talk about but that are important to explore when it comes to creating a fulfilling sexual lifestyle.

What am I speaking about? I’m not telling you…okay. I’ll tell a little; I’m focusing on breaking out of sexual shells and how I desire to provoke that action in my readers through my characters. That’s all I’m saying! You’ll have to grab your spot to hear more and learn more from the other wonderful guests at the conference.

I highly recommend registering soon for this FREE event because it will fill up fast.

Take a NaNoWriMo Break with Me!

Sometimes you literally have to stop and smell the roses or take in the sunrise, or people watch in the city, or whatever musing fits your mood.

Life doesn’t stop moving but we can take a moment, or two, to take it all in. Musing for me is much like meditating and reflection. I’m able to breathe in where I am or where I’m going and exhale where I’ve been and what I’ve learned. I analyze what I see and how it may or may not affect me and I reflect on what I’ve seen and how different things are now.

On my channel, I’m putting together several moments of musing where I hope you can stop and enjoy the view with me.

I know we are on Day 14 of NaNoWriMo, and you have a word count to hit but why don’t you take a moment to muse just a little bit. Step outside, look out the window or click on the video above. Take it all in to get even more creativity out.

Back at it…YouTubing that is

Do you ever run out of stuff to write about…yeah me neither but sometimes, I get tired of typing so I’m restarting my channel on YouTube. Yep that’s right, I’m sharing spur of the moment thoughts about all things pertaining to a writer’s life in hopefully under three minutes!

Check it out. Subscribe or just like a video or two. I hope to inspire you to keep pushing and letting the words flow. And maybe make you laugh a little along the way.

Diary of an Exhausted Black Female Writer: The Drama of NaNoWriMo

I’d be lying if I said I’ve been focused thus far for NaNoWriMo 2017. I was supposed to give you guys my weekly update, starting with week one last week, but I was disappointed at my lack of dedication and focus. And the worst part is that I have no idea why I’m so lackadaisical. I literally have had time but my mind won’t function properly. Or maybe my fingers don’t feel like typing. I have no clue but plenty of excuses as you can see.

So I’m forcing this post out because it’s time for a change. After listening to Gary V. keeping it 110% this morning on The Breakfast Club, I’ve got to file away these million-and-one excuses and get back to my passionate grind.

Let me summarize what Gary said:
Stop looking at others and thinking they are lucky to be where they are. Refocus that attention on applauding their plight, shifting to positive energy and see if that energy reflects back on you. You may have to cut out some important people in your life – his example was your mother – that may be holding you back. They probably don’t even know that they are doing so with their contradictory or deconstructive language, so you must take it upon yourself to leave them where they need to be for you to succeed. Lastly (but not really because he dropped so much more knowledge that you’ll have to tune in for the dets), if you’re not loving what you are doing, you will not be successful at doing it. If you are not willing to get your hands dirty, stand outside in the rain or snow for eight hours to get what you need, stay late night after night, make sacrifices that others aren’t willing to make, then you WILL NOT succeed.

That’s it folks. #RealTalk. A true wake-up call for me. I love writing. I’m exhausted from life’s up and downs, but damnit, I can’t stop. You can’t stop. Keep forcing yourself to push through the dark or slow times. You have one lifetime to shine your extraordinary light. Let’s do it together.

With passion,

FYI, word-count for this month is only 700 but at least I’m writing something. What are you doing? #challengeyourself #writethroughitall
