Writing Playlist #27

stars 2 Hey, homies! I’m hella excited to share my Writing Playlist for the week. I have a feeling that my pen will be moving, and my fingers are going to hit the laptop keys in a frantic pace. Especially because last week was such an epic fail for a sista. Let me explain…

There were plenty of ongoing projects that I wanted to work on. Unfortunately, a few health issues had me in a hardcore stronghold for about a week. Mix in a tablespoon of depression, with a massive helping of anxiety, and you have yourself a recipe for not getting anything done. But, I’m determined to crush all my writing goals this week.

I have another eclectic playlist to share- hecks, all of my playlists are often unique, so. You will notice that there are a few songs by BTS. I’m obsessed with them and their music has been my Prozac. 🙂 Anyhoo, I’ve included a pic of the night sky for this post. The pic is a reminder that stars shine in the darkness, so I’m just going to shine on.

Writing Quickies #1

coffee     Sometimes I have those writing days where everything flows effortlessly. I get in that creative zone and am blown away by my work, in a humble manner of course. Then there are days when I’m crippled with anxiety. I stress and overthink to the point of mental exhaustion. I’m still showing up though. I’m feeling the fear and writing anyway.

Cheers, homies.

Writing Quickies And Random Quickies

abc Starting in March I’ll be doing quick posts about writing, and all the other randomness that pops in my head. These posts will be hella short in length; like a sentence or two, or a paragraph. The Writing Quickies will be my honest thoughts about everything under the writing umbrella. From my thoughts on trying to finish the first draft of my book, to the little things I’m picking up from the writing resource books I’m checking out.

Random Quickies will just be posts of me sharing all kinds of randomness. I started these posts last year, but failed to keep up with them. So, this is my fresh start with being random, and quick!

Cheers, homies!
