3)  I’ve finished my novella (Ramshackled), which is more of a novelette, and will be publishing it along with 26 microfiction tales about 26 women (working title: Rosebud).

4)  I forgot.  I did a lot of bookmaking last year.  Exhausting!  But it’s nice to see it all booked up this year.

RIP Maya Angelou

I finished typing my first story collection Rosebud this morning.

I fixed my Goodreads Author’s Page.

Then I logged onto FB to veg for a bit…and found out that Maya Angelou died.  So many Black women writers of my generation couldn’t believe how brave she was actually committing to ink what she thought and felt whether or not it was popular or acceptable.  She made me feel a little less weird and alone in this world.   Thank you, Miss Maya.  You made my life better!

Now, in the spirit of keepin’ on, I’m going to start typing my next novella, Ramshackled.

 

 

 

 

 

July 3, 2013

Settled into the new digs in June.  Had a migraine for 3+ weeks.  Joined an online Fiction group; dropped out of online fiction group.  Wrote absolutely nothing that I was supposed to be working on.  Started writing a chapbook of flash fiction (Rosebud and other small tales).  What?  Since when do I write short fiction?  Since never, that’s when.  A breakthrough at last!  Woo hoo!!!
