THU Writer @simplysayo _______________________________________ @mina_west is a young talented spoken word artist with a passion for poetry that translates through every line. After months of work, Ms Mina finally launched her first EP and performed to a sparkly eyed crowd of supporters filled with family, friends and fans. Suli Breaks– another talented poet- is one of said friends, and was also the host of the evening and despite a few bad jokes- quite a few- he helped warm up the crowd. The venue was giving some serious Neo Soul,  laid back acoustic type vibes and as soon as you entered, you were embraced into the warm darkness of creativity. Imagine Erykah Badu giving an acoustic performance in a dimly lit room and, every now and then, you see flickers of melanin hues reflecting the small amount of light that escaped from the sage and a handful of candles… yeah, issa vibe! .......(Read more at thehookup.co.uk)
Mawnin beauties 💕 Here's today's message... it's a trifecta, really. 1. Do things to engage your mind, body and soul. Only when you engage all three will you be spiritually aligned. 2. Do what you love, even if it scares the shit outta you. And, 3. if you're in BK, come thru tonight to hear me spit. . . . #MindBodySoul #YeahWrite #IWrite #CauseImARenegade #NeverBeenAfraidToSayWhatsOnMyMindAtAnyGivenTimeOrDay #Writer #writersofinstagram #Artist #Felon #artistsoninstagram #Creative #BlackGirlsWhoWrite #BlackWomenWhoWrite #BlackWriters #Brooklyn #BrooklynWriters #Fiction #CreativeNonfiction #Memoir #Screenplay

Wow! 5 of my quotes were listed as Top Quotes for this week with thousands of votes. This is super dope because I wrote all of these quotes on napkins that I shot in the trashcan while saying, “Kobe!” Only to take them back out the trash after I decided just to post them randomly. Thank you to the thousands of humans who voted for them. I’m very grateful!✍🏾 #Quote #Quotes

I Write DOPE Shit 1 Some daily writing to keep the momentum going of content creation. This however is going to be in the format of writing about a certain word everyday. I use a great site called "oneword.com". As the name states, when you log into the site you are given a word and 1 minute to write about it. Just write, don't think. Here is my take on a word. #writersofinstagram #dailywriting #oneword #writingprompts #blackwriters #dope #supportwriters
Congratulations and Welcome Trionna Moore to the cast of Amazon Prime Gavin Hook The Series. She accepted her offer to play the dual role of a treacherous villain in the series . Her character role will be Sydnei/Black Shadow. A woman who sin takes her further than she wants to go and leads her to the point of no return. Craziest character I've ever written. Thank you Trionna for taking on this challenging character.

Sometimes life will bend you. Sometimes it will mend you. Sometimes it will push you to the edge while still holding on to you. Life will give you everything just to take it away. Life will be worth it. For YOU WON’T BREAK. -denisha renee- I was tagged by @sincerelysarese to do the #3wordstory challenge.

He's got scars all over his legs because he used to "draw" on himself. She keeps telling him that he's amazing the way he is. He reads it over 100 times, but he still doesn't fully believe it. When her name pops up, he instantly smiles. Then night falls and turns into the silent hours. That's when his mind tells him that she'll leave when she finds out how bad it is. He doesn't have scars on his arm because that's the first place teachers look- the first place counselors look. They think that's the only place a blade can brush across. Kids are smart, but they don't think that unless there's a fat A and a smiley face on the paper. He has a heavy heart. She keeps telling him that she loves him- that he could never mess their friendship up, but he doesn't trust it. He doesn't trust himself. Sometimes he doesn't tell her when it gets bad because he knows its too much. It's too much for him, so it has to be too much for someone else. He loves her, so he tells her he's fine- he tells her not to worry. He tells her that he always finds his way out. He asked if she trusted him, but she doesn't know its because he doesn't trust himself. She tells him that he's doing great, but he feels like he's drowning. He has scars that people will never see, but they're still there. He still carries them.

Thank you to everyone who purchased #LustIsEasy .❤️ The discussions I’m seeing on the internet are exactly what I hoped for with this project. I wanted to write a book that was RELATABLE. I’m not the same type of writer I used to be. If you haven’t received your copy yet and you’ve ALREADY ordered I promise you it will ship tomorrow and you’ll receive an email from our warehouse with your USPS tracking number. Sending you all a GINORMOUS amount of LOVE! Thank you for supporting the culture, the creatives, and the ART! #BlackBoyJoy 🖤

Go in love. It's weird to think about maybe. But I've had the sweetest experiences living In my new city by telling strangers to have a good day. Sweet Thursday 💜🌻
The three most common mistakes I’ve made in the past: 1. Self-doubt, which led to self-pity and complicit thoughts. 2. Seeking validation, especially from those who would never have anything positive to say about me. 3. Not letting volatile situations go! #blackbloggersclub #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlswhowrite #blackauthorsmatter #blackbloggers #bloggerlife #childrenbookillustration #childrensbooks #blackbook #booksofinstagram #bookshop #lifestyleblogger #dcbloggers #dcblogger #dmvblogger #bossblogger #blackwriters #writersofinsta #writerssociety #blackauthors #authorsofinstagram
To my sisters telling their stories by the pen, even when it gets hard, when the pain resurfaces, the grief becomes unbearable, or you can’t find the words to say. Cry it out. Then, write it out. You deserve to tell your story. If people wanted to be spoken of nicely, they should’ve behaved better. #WriteTheBookSis 💫 #TLRQuote #TheLiteraryRevolutionary

📖I started this page turner of a story this morning & just finished it a few minutes ago. If you enjoy fantasy that doesn’t have an overly complicated magic system that takes half of the story to explain, characters that you’ll want to root for, and a story that will continue on into a series I would recommend putting Song of Blood and Stone by @leslyepenelope on your watch list! Previously indie published, this gem of a story is being re-published by @stmartinspress on May 1st. I’ll be posting a full review on the blog on release day. By the way, I’ve seen a couple of reviews list this as YA-it’s NOT due to sex scenes. More New Adult, but I was a strict book mom. . . . . . #readsoullit #readingblackout #diversespines #bookstagram #blackbookblogger #blackwriters #aawriters #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookblogger #blackblogger #aafiction #fantasybooks #diversefantasy #sff #fantasy

Diamond 💎Dreams Pt I & II is Available on Amazon, click the link in the bio. 💋💋💋 Madison and Jordan construct a plan to run an escorting business when they are laid off from their jobs. They live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, and looking for a way to get out of their bad financial situations. Their clients aren’t just every day people, their clients are powerful people or well known people throughout the media. The young women receive most of their powerful clientele from two men…Brian and Yo who are great successful plastic surgeons with a million dollar firm. Brian and Yo becomes devastated when they find out the women are videotaping everything that goes on between the clients and the escorts.

Anyone or anything that interferes with her happiness of Diamond Dreams will be dealt with immediately.

Textgram designed by: Me Poetry by: Alexandra Elle Text below and post inspired by: @thisbrownegirl I was touched when I read this! Thank you for sharing Sis! 🖤🌹 #blackwoman #blackwomen #blackgirlmagic #blackman #blackmen #theblackmancan #blackisbeautiful #melanin #queen #blacklove --------------------------- "April is #nationalpoetrymonth 'I love seeing: Black men who undeniably love black women and not just for our curves, color combinations, thickness, lips and breasts but because of our honey, our flavor, our sweetness, our poise and the loudness of our souls. They see us as Queens; they crown us as such. It is understood that we can be modestly grandiose; even though some may claim our blackness leaves us ashamed and scared to show our God given glow. I melt seeing: Black men who undeniably love black women for birthing their daughters and raising their sons and who embrace that fact that we are not just a vessel or a beautiful bold statue to show off. We are where they come from, we are who they love. -Black Men (Undeniable Love)' Alexandra Elle, Love In My Language" #poetry  #poem  #alexandraelle  #poetess #blackpoets  #blackpoety  #womenwriters #blackwriters  #blackauthors

Here’s a super dramatic thing I wrote last night. I don’t really know what it means. What do you think it’s about?
Ask yourself if your contribution to your mood is based on obsessive thinking about something you can't change. We sabotage ourselves without knowing it, by having conversations over and over about things that upset us, about situations that didn't go our way, about people who upset us. We start to crave the satisfaction in hearing ourselves talk about what's not helping us. And wonder why we don't feel better. •••• be very intentional about not participating against yourself in obsessive talking. Some things will keep coming to focus, and every time You'll have to swallow the words You had for it....because it won't be a life statement. •••• set boundaries for yourself about yourself. I hope you understand 🌻💜

#BGWW Featured Writer Alert 🚨 ✨ Kimberly A. Hemmings @aceandgracetravelbooks has been an elementary educator for twenty years. She has a M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education, certifications in Elementary Leadership and Administration, as well as Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. The combination of her teaching experience, her passion for reading, and her love of travel, led her to become an author of children’s literature. ✨ As a child, I loved reading because of the magical way books would transport me to places far away. My favorite books were those written in rhyme. I loved the rhythm of the words and often wrote my own poems and stories. The rhyming, travel books in the Ace and Grace Travel Books series were inspired from my numerous international travels. I currently live in the U.S., but have lived abroad for several years, and have spent extended time in countries all around the world. I want to use my God given talent, to open the eyes of our youth by exposing them to more of the world. It is my hope that my travel book series, will foster a love and appreciation of other cultures, emphasize the importance of diversity, and instill a thirst for travel, all while teaching valuable, life lessons. 👉🏽Let’s support our fellow #BrownGirlsWhoWrite 💜 • • • ✅Tag 3 writers who should see this. ✅To be considered for a feature please DM us 💜 ✅FREE Self Publishing Checklist Click link in bio! 👨🏾‍💻
