Naming my Characters

Hello there, anonymous people of the intertubes! How do you fare today? Today is get-story-done day. I started a short story the weekend before last and it remains unfinished. It ballooned from a short story that was supposed to take a few pages (3 or 4) but is now 6400+ words long and I haven’t…

Author Websites

Welcome back! Are you having a good day/night? I’ve been wondering about this blog. I’m not a newcomer to blogging, but wanted a space where I could blog about writing, connect with other writers and pimp my wares (my wares are not yet ready for pimpin’, but look out for the pink suit soon!). Is…

There are a few things important to me that I will list here. Elaboration on request! Elevation and unification of black people everywhere Human rights Children’s…
