Many of my friends and family have been waiting on a book from me forever. I’ve never stopped writing but as time has passed I realized that maybe the “traditional” way of becoming an author might not be what’s best for me.
A lot of you who have met me in the last few years don’t know this, but my first creative love is writing.
The more I thought about it, the less I felt compelled to make up a story or even to rehash some fictionalized version of my life to protect whom ever might not want to be portrayed in a less than positive light.
One of my favorite quotes on writing is “if they didn’t want to be written about, maybe they should have behaved better.” Or something like that.
I said all that to announce I’m going back to blogging.
For now, the very loose outline of my blog is the daily (or semi-daily) chronicles of reinventing, or better yet, REIMAGINING AND REDEFINING yourself (myself) as an almost 50 year old black and unmarried woman with kids, a business and trying to make it all look like a life.
What life is like raising kids and building my own community and how that looks for me and other women who may be experiencing some of the same feelings I have.
Momming while discovering yourself and being a creative and starting and running a business SUCCESSFULLY isn’t too much to tackle said no single mother entrepreneur ever.
Did I just say the same thing 3 times?
Of course I did... I am a mom and a creativity coach. LOL
Whatever I said and however it comes out, I know that I have the technical ability, the mental bandwidth and the social presence to do this (I think ) so I’m just going to dive right in.
Just go with this.
It's going to be real.
And you know it will be hilarious at times.
And I’ll be as honest as I can be.
I really hope you guys come along with me on this extension of my journey.
