Stuff I’m Doing

18 Jul

Over on Madame Noire, I’ll be doing weekly book reviews! Check out the site every Thursday and Saturday for new stuff from me. My first two are already up. One is about Blair Underwood’s latest book and the other is about a personal favorite of mine from Octavia Butler.

Be sure to pop over there when you can. It’s a fun, informative site.

    Hi Demetria! You blog is dope indeed! I found from a post on Happy Black Woman. Your writing is inspiring. I will be checking our your book reviews. ….. I find that the more business I get ( a good thing) the more my writing is blocked. I have to make more time for creative inspiration and observations. Any tips? If you starting a online writing bootcamp I would sign up 🙂

    Hiya! Thank you so much for the kind words! I actually wrote this post 80,000 years ago. LOL Since that time, I became a staffer there and then left a couple months ago. I’m back on my freelance grind. 🙂 Tips for making time to write? Like Nike said, just do it. LOL There will always be a reason not to write, but you have to make writing for yourself as much a part of your day as taking a shower. I find it easiest to schedule in my writing time in the morning. I do Morning Pages (a la The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron) and I’ve found that to be very useful for exercising my brain and getting the creative juices flowing. Best wishes to you!
