Life Of An Ethnic Writer

Feeling better... Mind over matter. At least that's what I have to keep telling myself (or having told to me...thankx). I know that I am my own hurdle. Mind, body and yes sometimes Spirit. I am a Winner and the more I began to act like one the more I will perfect it.

Well, IDK....

No-one wants a pitty party so I'm going to uninvite myself to yours.

Be A Leader.....

When Allison "Essence M" Edwards wrote Broken Promises Don't Mend, she did way more than share a piece of her life experience. Essence M also molded fact and fiction together in a way that any reader who has gone through something similar in their relationship would be able to take something positive away from it.

women of color

The blackness within your skin reveals a beautiful tone complexion to the definition
of your fineness poured over motion.
From a mysterious look captured in your eyes, your feminimity gives birth.
Stimulating grace is vibrant and subtle, almost to sensitive to touch-
I'm left to wonder is it true?

What's the difference between Mutli-Tasking and Over Working?

Well, IDK...

I think it's when you are no longer productive at the things you are doing. Or maybe you've become so entangled in NEW stuff that you let the OLD stuff dangle. Or is it when you CAN'T tell your up from down or your left from right.

Again... IDK

Are you Multi-Tasking or Over Working?

Think About You..
