Tell your baby mama sister cousin nem'!! It's live!! Link in the bio--------------------- Asha is a, good girl that takes pride in being a mother. Living in Fairgrounds Housing Projects has been filled with break-ins and beatdowns by her kids father.
Asha gets the nerve to kick Brian out and he doesn't take that well.
As Asha fights to make a way out of the projects she runs into the dapper Prodigy Le Savage! The college graduate drafted Street King.
Eager to leave the fast life behind, Prodigy slowly starts to transition the day to day over to his best friend Izaak.
What happens when Prodigy changes his mind and decides to run things with the new lady in his life?
The fast life is fun and games until you're burying your soul mate six feet under!
Muse, shmooze... Regardless of whether or not we've been kissed on the head by the benevolent writing fairy, we must put our derrières in our chairs if we want to finish our stories. Warm fuzzy feelings of inspiration are great, but they're not always consistent - discipline, tenacity, and determination (& coffee...) must fill in the gaps! #unstoppablewriter
A good place to write in Florence? With excellent Wifi? That might seem like a no-brainer in a city with so many cafes but good Wifi is not a given in this medieval town.
Definitely Ditta Artigianale café is among my top suggestions for places to settle in for a few hour’s writing. As cafes are traditionally a common hangout for those who love writing, it's worth knowing that Ditta has some of the best Wifi in Florence.
They also serve healthy snacks, juices and interesting food that goes beyond pasta and pizza. I guess just be mindful that if you are taking up a table for a long time (the writing is flowing YAY!), keep ordering a drink so you are not costing your ‘writing café’ money.
A bit of a narcissistic tip I have for writing that is helpful for both motivation and plotting is to pretend you've already published whatever you're working on and are being interviewed on it.
Why did (are) you writing this? What are your inspirations? What do these characters represent to you? Etc etc.
When doing this have a notebook out and write it all down. You'd be surprised about how helpful some simple answers may be.
When you're having an unmotivated day remind yourself why you're doing this in the first place.
(Also if you look at my first draft you can see the note I left myself when editing, "I can tell you wote this as an awkward 16 year old" )
“Indeed, learning to write may be part of learning to read. For all I know, writing comes out of a superior devotion to reading.”

I heard Gabriela Pereira of DIY MFA share this tip on a podcast recently and I wanted to share it, albeit via abbreviated infographic I hope you find it helpful!
New short story up on Wattpad! You guys should totally check it out. It's actually work from a couple years ago, but this is the first time I've shared it. It's very short, but hopefully illuminating.
In other news, I think I'm finally coming back to the world of Instagram. Took me long enough, but something tells me that now is the time to get back into the swing of things. It feels right.
And here's a reminder to all of you: it's okay to not feel okay sometimes. It's okay to take a break from certain tasks that drain you when that precious energy is needed in other aspects of your life that take precedence. It's okay to not be okay, but it's not okay to stay that way. At least not indefinitely. Take whatever time you need, but never give up. You'll find your spark again.
Anyway, hopefully you guys will be seeing me more regularly and hopefully I'll be back with my weekly quotes, prompts, contests, advice, and general inspiration. And as always, keep writing #write#writer#writing#writingcommunity#writingaccount#writersofig#writersofinsta#writersofinstagram#wattpad#wattpadstory#shortstory#writinginspiration#writingmotivation#motivationmonday
