SEXTABULOUS…she giggles!


Channeling my inner “Jessica Rabbit”

LAUGHTER, maybe perhaps a giggle or two is that thing that gets me through the day. Sexy and any combination of fabulous, “SEXTABULOUS”… gives one the confidence to conquer the strongest of male egos…you know them, that handsome dude around the corner who thinks every woman should swoon at the sound of his voice.

ULTIMATELY, it’s the guy who can tickle my inners who wins the prize of my full and undivided attention. Life is way to complicated in the land of POTUS #45; this doesn’t mean one is oblivious to the seriousness of the current events trending via CNN, it just means I choose balance to level off political toxicity.

We have all heard the saying, “LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE”, one of my favorite ministers told a story of a terminally ill man who began to watch a comedy video on a daily basis…letting out the biggest gut wrenching laugh each time he watched that same video. He had no idea how his laughter was in fact shrinking his massive tumors, I get the moral of the story…LAUGH…GIGGLE…and be “SEXTABULOUS”.

A Writer’s Wish List in Black & White

“every freelance writer dreams of the opportunity to sit down at the table of a literary genius”


A clear vision of what you hope to achieve will certainly help to keep your focus in order. While distractions may come and go, the end goal must remain in the forefront of your daily endeavors. It may not be necessary to re-invent the proverbial wheel, your creativity will not suffer if you mimic the literary practices of those who have successfully authored before you.

  • compile your wish list and write it down

  • research writer’s you wish to work with

e.g. (Shonda Rhimes, Lee Daniels, Luvvie Ajayi, Chicken Soup For the Soul, O’ Magazine)

  • read and repeat submission qualifications
  • create for yourself a chart of deadlines

Most importantly kick fear out of the window, step out on faith and go get the writer’s lifestyle you so desire.

never forget “WHO” you are…


Silence awakens her inner creativity

who speaks to my spirit this early morning

I see him glowing through the sunlight

who offers encouragement as a tiny whisper

My patio becomes a bohemian oasis

who loves every beautiful hue unapologetically

I am full no longer lost or hungry

who spoke unto me…never forget “WHO” you are
