Weekly Playlist : May 12-18, 2019

All genres of music have inspired my work as a writer over the years. I’d thought I’d provide a weekly look into the songs that inspire me on a daily basis.  

For The Struggling Creative.

We all want success. And we all want to feel fulfilled, to feel that we’ve done our absolute best with our gift and craft. For some it comes so easy, and for others it is the hardest thing we do daily. When it’s hard, it can tear down our self-esteem. We can find ourselves in… Read More

Throw Away Week [October 2018]

It’s really no secret to those who know me well, and those who have been following my work as a writer for a few years now that I am good for starting novels or full length stories, and quitting them more than I actually work to complete them. I kid you not when I say… Read More

October 2018 [Monthly Playlist]

A few spooks, a whole lot of good musical vibes for October and Halloween. A mixture of tunes now synonymous with the ‘holiday’, as well as a few silly spook-themed classics and tracks. I hope you enjoy the 12 chosen tracks as much as I do. πŸ˜€ For those who celebrate or plan to have… Read More

For My Daddy.

I’ve never been the best at, or the most comfortable at expressing everything I feel. Not even when it’s obvious that my emotions are taking over and threatening to spill over into what always seems to be a wreck of a life. Never been the one that wanted to place the burden of my feelings… Read More

Black Pearl (by Cortney Joseph)

He paused for a moment, trying to find the right words. “It’s different for different people. What it should be; your heart, and the way you treat people. Your personality and your attitude. Beauty on the outside is nice, but it’s not what matters the most.” Read More
