EVERYTHING ON HOLD

Dear Reader,

I was finally getting to a place where I could balance my work and my writing. I have always been a person to put things before me, especially things near and dear to my heart. In this instance, it would be fiance, again. I find myself at a very hard time in my life. I usually keep this blog pretty personal free, but this is all me, love it or hate it. I am at crossroads where I can't further the release of my debut novel this Spring, but I am in no way shape or form not doing some form of creative writing.

This is what usually happens in my crazy little life, which is why I never really make plans, I just live, live, live. I'm always doing things on the fly, because I either change my mind, or life happens and changes my mind for me. It's a crazy little existence my little corner of the world. You would think I would have all my shit together at the age of 30, but I don't. I will be 31 in May, and I can only hope things fall into place this Summer.

The thing about life it is all about measurements. Age, happiness, accomplishments. There really is no expiration date on any, but then again, there is. I feel like time is ticking away, and I am not really accomplishing what I want. So much is going on, and I am just over it. I have known the North is not for me. I have hated NYC since I step foot here, and it only got worse and worse. I'm a flower meant to bloom in the sunshine of the South.

The good thing for you? The more I hurt, the better my writing is. I have always said my art comes from a very dark place, and these days are getting darker and darker. I can only channel the negativity into my writing and turn it into something positive for both me and you. What does this mean? I am writing more poetry, I will be releasing some work on my Wattpad, "Caged Animal". Look out for that some time in March, hopefully.

So, where am I with my debut novel? Book one of the trilogy is completed, and I am 20 or so pages into Book two.


  • It has a title (that I love!)
  • It's almost done with my personal editing
  • I will make my changes
  • It will sit


That's pretty much the gist of this crisis in my life. My work has to sit and wait, but I am working. I have plenty of project ideas for stand alone books I hope to work on in the future. For now, I continue to build my manuscript collection until all the smoke clears, and I can get back to releasing this first book.

Until my re-awakening, I bid you all adieu my lovelies,

JM Wynter

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
