About Black Girl Thinking:
First and foremost I am a child of God. I am also a wife and the mother two wonderful boys’ ages 14 yrs old and 6 yrs old and a precious 1 year old daughter. I live in Memphis, Tennessee, and have lived here my entire life. I am a full-time wife, mom and I also work full-time (hence the reason this blog is not always updated as often as I would like). I love to shop, read blogs and last but not least write. Even though I don’t read nearly as much as I need to or used to, where I slack in reading books, I make up by reading online articles and blogs (lots and lots of blogs) lol.
I used to write lots of poetry, but the ambition to be poetic left me quite some time ago. My passion for fiction writing developed around my high school years and has never completely diminished, even though I have stood under the storm cloud of rejection quite a few times. Writing is such a huge portion of my life and I could not imagine my life without it.
I have been working on quite a few books for quite a long time. I have so many book ideas in my head that sometimes they get jumbled and I have to take a break and procrastinate lol A while back I was looking for an agent and all I got was rejection letters, no one wanted to take a chance on lil ole me. After a while the rejection killed my spirit and I stopped my agent search and slacked up on my writing. I did a little writing here and there, but I definitely didn’t actually sit down and work on any books because I was disappointed that as much as I loved to write, my writing may never be published.
But, even when I wasn’t actively writing, my brain was still working overtime with ideas, book ideas, blog ideas and just jumbled thoughts about short stories etc. I knew I had to write so I started back actively working on my book/s and started back blogging regularly. So here I am today, doing what I love to do which is writing. It is definitely my passion.
