Hey everybody! How’s your week been?

I’ve noticed that a lot of folks do some weekly wrap-ups of fun things they do. Since I’m basically working on getting my writing out more, I thought I’d share a few of the writing things I do each week. So here starts a new segment: Writing Week Wrap! Let’s get into it.

Over at Sribbles & Smiles Michelle Chisall chose me to be her guest blogger this week. Very cool! She started a new segment, “Choose Day,” which highlights some positive outlooks on life.  I wrote about not letting your fear hold you back. Here’s the post! Go check out her blog, it’s definitely engaging. She writes about animal rights, being a writer and some lifestyle stuff as well, though she may be a happier end of the spectrum. What can I say? I can’t seem to get rid of the tortured artist thing.

Next stop is over at The Daily Gallen. Tim Gallen, writer extraordinaire, started a creative writing segment on his blog in February (It’s March already, holy crap?!). He featured my short, short story today. It’s called The Map and is snap shot into a dystopian future. I may expand it later. His blog is about his writing journey and his irreverent sense of humor often makes it a quirky, fun read.

I also submitted entries for two poetry e-books. One for the d’verse online writing group, and one for another online group called Writers Unite. Wish me luck!

My first poetry collection, “The Shaping of an Angry Black Woman,” end is near. I’m really excited to be closing that segment of my writing journey. Now it’s a matter of arranging chapters, getting my artwork together for it and submitting to my publisher, Sakura Publishing. Soon I’ll have a date that this bad boy will be released. I am a little sad though. It’s the culmination of so many years of poetry. What will I do after it’s done? (Oh yeah, try to get people to read it! Right. *gulp*)

By the way, I’m still looking for a few good guest bloggers. Here’s my guidelines. By all means, if you’re interested, drop me a line.

Alrighty, that’s my wrap up for this week. Thanks for stopping by. I’m going to kickoff my weekend right with some writer sprints with #WriteClub.

Aloha ya’ll!
