Completing projects for publication, even on my own website, was overwhelming when I first started my official writing career.
Regardless of what’s going on around you there are always two things you can control – your actions and your reactions.
I’ve realized that people who are used to being mistreated and disrespected are the ones most likely to take your kindness for weakness.
I was lying in bed thinking about the difference between a writer and an author. I pondered which I was.
I tried fighting my sleep schedule before. It became the cycle of a new born baby. I’d go to sleep around 5am and sleep until the afternoon. I finally made up my mind to go with the flow of my brain.

I remember my cousins and I going outside and playing for a while. For some reason, we’d come back inside, for something to drink maybe or to use the bathroom. We’d go back outside, come back in, go back out, come back in. Finally, my mother or grandmother would say, “Either stay out or stay in. Leave that door alone.”
