Wattpad Debut: A Caged Animal

READ A CAGED ANIMAL EXCLUSIVELY ON WATTPAD

I released a short book of 23 poems entitled, "A Caged Animal" exclusively on Wattpad. My voice usually isn't militant, but this is how I was feeling at the time. I was witnessing something strange happening to the Black man that I am in love with, and the only way to cope was to write.
I'm not going to blast this work a lot, and I'm sure it will be read more a year from now. I honestly just feel accomplished for having something with my mark out there.
Now, let's talk about Wattpad. I do not like it. I do not like how things are broken down, I do not like how every page flip is an advertisement for someone's work. I'm not very fond of Wattpad, but I do have plans to release more projects on there.
Releasing this project has definitely taught me that my friends on Facebook could give a shit less about my writing save for a couple, and I'm going to have to invest in a lot of advertising.
An elderly gentleman just told me to put my phone down and read a book...

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 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 …
