When Queens Speak!

Standard

Good Morning Lovies,

FullSizeRender(1)I am so excited to share with you guys a FREE anthology of poetry called “When Queens Speak” (Royalty Reaches the Masses). I am proud to say four of my poems were included in this collection in honor of National Poetry Month. I hope you will take the time to download your copy. It is only available in e-book form. Many thanks to Rashida V. for putting this together.

Here’s the blurb:

“This E-book is a wonderful Anthology of poetry written by multiple American women. It’s eclectic, thought provoking and sincere. Each poem will enlighten or awaken the mind, the heart or the soul that engages. A dope work of feminine poetic energy surged into one. This is a must read.”

Week 2 – Writing for Television with Shonda Rhimes

Standard

 

how to write for television by shonda rhimesThis week picked up where last week left off. I am still finding the course very stimulating, which is rare for me. I usually lose interest after a bit, but this course is living up to my expectations so far. Shonda makes it easy using reference from her work on Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy. It is a lot easier to follow the lessons when you are familiar with the case studies she is referencing.

This week we took the study bible from lesson 4 and extended the learning. We were tasked to writ bios for our characters, but only after she told us how to do so and provided reference for us as examples. Speaking of references, we were also taught that research is key. Shonda gave us her tips and tricks of doing the proper amount of research and to know when you are ready to start writing. My favorite lessons were about developing characters. This is the lessons I have been looking forward to the most and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am grateful that I can go back anytime and listen to the lessons all over again.  Of course I took notes, but sometimes things may be lost in translation. It is always good to have that original video for reference.

Well, that’s all for now! Week three will be exciting as we are learning to pitch our shows and how to start writing the script. Check back next Sunday for an update on how those lessons went.

 

Laters babes.

Your shy smile and adorable face
Told me God had sent you to me and by his grace….
We found each other once again

Our souls recognized each other
You see we knew one another in the past…
Long before that day in another place and time, but somehow we did not last…
But God sent you back to me.

When we spoke you finished my sentence and I finished yours
You see we….
Vibed off each other’s spirit, I knew you to the core.
I disregarded your mild stutter and did not see the color of your skin.
So I defied my upbringing and decided to let you in.

Your soul spoke to mine in a language I…
