AUTHOR

J.M. Wynter

I was born and raised an hour outside of Disney. I have bounced between Lakeland, Atlanta, and now this Southern strawberry finds herself in New York City. I love dark and gritty things, 95% of the time, yes I do love unhappy endings.

In the real world I work a 9-5, then I write part-time. My manuscripts are the only anchor in my life right now, and I'm enjoying drowning in the sea of words.

I get most of my inspiration from dreams, and yes, I will get up in the middle of the night to jot down ideas! I have a myriad of scribbled sticky notes with ideas from while I'm at work.

My Creative Awakening
Right before 2017 hit something stirred in me. I could see this awesome chain of Black Girl Magic going on, and I knew instantly I wanted in on that. A new Kid Cudi album dropped, "Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin'", which had me delve so deep into my feelings, that I didn't want to dig myself out of my dark hole. My art comes from a dark place that since I was 10 I aptly called, " The Void". Finally at 30, I'd found the balance between that light and the dark. I woke up into my Creative Awakening, and decided to keep swimming.

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 …
