This book hates me🤦🏿♀️
It’s finally fall! https://bitly.report/2y4lDq4 This is my favorite time of year for obvious reasons: crisp temps, colorful leaves, long sleeved shirts, and burgundy lipstick. 🍂 In writer news, my fall writing workshop starts this Saturday, October 6th. The class is for writers interested in publishing a book, but who don't know where to start. It also includes a free first chapter or outline critique. I'd love to see you there.

Another birthday, another go around the sun. A new year to be thankful! Over this year I wrote (and rewrote) three manuscripts: TFS for the billionth time, a novel that terrifies me so I have to see it through (Nova’s retreat gang, you know what it is), and a smaller project that taught me to find the real story within a story (thanks Tasherit). The first thing we learn about stories are that they are a series of events. But they aren’t about events, they are actually about problem solving, about growth and teaching. And your characters will kick your ass until you let them teach the world (and you) their lesson. Like my fake but totally real characters, my lesson this year was both to teach and be teachable. What has your lesson been? 📷: @chelacervantesphotography 💄: @daniellerochonmakeup Hair: @braids_by_nikki Brows: @ashdoesbrows
Does anyone else love a Hades and Persephone retelling? Maybe I’ll write one after TFS. #Repost @saniodigitalart ・・・ A bit different Hades and Persephone. 35$ #art #arts_help #illustration #drawing #ristic_feature #TagsForLikes #artist #ancientegypt #sketchbook #africa #digitalart #history #artsy #instaart #beautiful #instagood #gallery #masterpiece #creative #photooftheday #instaartist #graphic #followforfollow #DopeBlackArt @dope_black_art
Hello September! I am a few days late, but let's blame the holiday. I always feel like my year begins in September, maybe because it's my birthday month, or I like when the morning air turns crisp. A few things on my plate this month: I'm still in the writing cave working on TFS. Send love and Kit Kats.📚I updated my Patreon with new tiers including a First Page Critique and a First Chapter Critique (link in bio and here: http://bit.ly/2sVE1QG). I don’t have a ton of space but I can work on a few📚Finally, I'm teaching a writing class on Saturday 9.15. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/2vspo87 Are you in the writing cave this month?
