I need some writers, man. Writers who write to write about social change. I also need at least one person in the Ferguson/St. Louis area interested in writing or sharing content about what’s really going on down there. Interested? Let me know.


I have to push my pride to the side because this code is kicking my butt! I thought I would breeze through this assignment - nope. Not at all. Luckily, it’s not for a grade. It’s just to show we can get most of it done. I’m confident I can do that. 

But I need to take a break because I’m really hungry. I’m going to try not to think about the two stories for the magazine I have to write while on my lunch break.


I heard some poems that touched my soul and I’m just sitting here with my mind blown. I need to pray about my writing more often. I need to be okay with God guiding my hand. Some of my writing will be just me and just mine and that’s fine. But I think the writing that other people will read needs to be not just me.

I think she was afraid to love sometimes.
I think it scared her.
She was the type to like things
that were concrete, like the ocean.
Something you could point to and
know what it was.
I think thats why she struggled with Love.
She couldn’t touch it.
She couldn’t hold onto it
and make sure it never changed.

me: time to write the next chapter
me: *gets distracted*
me: *gets distracted*
me: *opens word document*
me: *checks tumblr*
me: *writes one sentence*
me: *eats chocolate*

Finishing an article always feels like a huge accomplishment. I love that feeling! I wish I could feel that way about my creative writing. But in order to do that, I have to actually FINISH something. 


So me and research and writing aren’t getting along at the moment. There’s a lot of stuff going on with getting ready for the vacation and with the magazine and blah. Excuses. Yep. I need to get rid of those. Then maybe research wouldn’t be so bad.
