Accidental Break

Uncategorized

Hi, loves! I’m currently typing with my thumbs to announce that I’ll be taking a brief, unexpected hiatus from NIA SPEAKS. *insert 300 crying emojis* I had a longboard accident earlier this week, resulting in dislocating my finger. The splint in which my finger is held makes many tasks more difficult, including typing on the computer; but I’m seeing a hand surgeon next week, so hopefully, my recovery time will…

500 Writing Prompts: 5/500

Uncategorized

The following is a journal entry from my personal copy of Piccadilly’s 500 Writing Prompts. Write ten original thoughts that will be stuffed inside fortune cookies for perfect strangers to read.

You always belong at the beach.…

Alton Sterling

Uncategorized

From my Facebook page… I don’t have the strength to write about Alton Sterling. One of the worst things in the world is knowing that your people are under attack; and despite the many advancements made across different platforms and minds, we are still being wrongfully executed at an alarming rate and proportion. What hurts maybe just as much are the people who justify our deaths. Most of these people…
