All is well. In my life of literature and living that is. I’ve had an incredible year thus far with working on a television show, writing and acting. Very exciting!
Now we are in the fall already… I have mixed emotions about that. Summer is my favorite time of year. Or honestly, it may be that I enjoy the daylight savings time frame. But with winter I have to be mindful of my moods. I lose energy, I lose ambition and drive. I’ve never identified it as depression but it could be.
So like always, I am working on my favorite project to date! (I say that for all of them 🙂 This one started as a new collection of short stories but it may be considered a novel. You know how things take a life of their own once you begin them? That is what this project did and I am so excited to share it with the world.
I look forward to reconnecting with my blog world friends. It’s been awhile! Stay tuned and I’ll be hanging around your pages as well.
This is a section of the poem “Reverse Opinions” I wrote for the digital series Rebel Yell for BET.COM. Check out the full version and enjoy!
Make sure you tune in to BET every Tuesday for “Rebel”. Also, every Tuesday go to BET.com (click under the tab “Rebel”) to get a poetic recap of the weeks episode by the amazingly talented lead actress, Danielle Mone Truitt. You’ll LOVE the poetry! Why?… because it is written by moi 🙂
Today in her-story, the world lost the amazing entertainer, Josephine Baker.
