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: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
