J.M. WynterI 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.
