Sorry, I am not interested…

Hello Tomodachi šŸ‘‹

How are you all doing this fine Wednesday afternoon? Summer is practically over and everyone is getting on with their lives and doing their own thing while I am still trying to figure out what to do with myself and my life. I sometimes wish life came with a “How to” guidebook on how to manoeuvre through a life that is always unexpected, miserable but at the same time also beautiful.

So many questions, but no answers

Hello Tomodachi’s,

Good afternoon, all you lovely people! I know it has been a while but please bear with me. The last few weeks have not been the best for me. Since returning to my small island after living in the Netherlands for a while, I have been dealing with a lot of ignorance and nonsense. One of these days I will eventually come around to talking about it a little, but for now, I need some more time to stew in my thoughts.

A snippet from one of the stories I am writing

Hey, Tomodachi’s!

Good day to you all near and far. I hope you are having a great day!

For this week’s blog post, I wanted to post a snippet from one of the three novels I am trying to write called The Forlorn One. About a little over three years ago I posted the first snippet from this story and since then never posted anything else again after that. I believe around that time was also the last time I wrote anything for this story because I was experiencing writer’s block for the longest time. So, after a while, I decided to stop and gave myself a break from writing. And as you can see a lot of time has passed by. Therefore, I am thinking of starting back up again after not writing any stories for such a long. Enough is enough, don’t you think? I feel a little embarrassed that it took me this long to get back to writing. But whatever… The most important thing is that I am starting back again.

Anyway, below is another snippet of my novel and I hope you enjoy reading it. And of course, please let me know your thoughts. Take care and have a great day.

My spoken word performance on Sunday

Hello Tomodachi’s,

Below is the poetry performance I spoke of on Sunday. I read 4 poems that night but below in the video I read only two poems, ‘Wounded’ and ‘Unapologetically black’. At a later time, I will blog about my experience of the night and it is most likely my last performance in the Netherlands. Continue reading
