Memories About Writing

Today is such a slow day. I am sitting at my desk trying to get some things done, but I am constantly drawn to my blog and writing. **smile** So, I am writing this just to satisfy my urge. Also, I am thinking of my deadline for submitting a poem/poetry to a journal or magazine. My goal is by the end of July. I haven't been published in over 6 years. My first published article (outside of college) was for local newspaper, The Washington Informer on a piece about a local Jazz club here in DC, HR-57 Center for the Preservation of Jazz and Blues. I interviewed local Jazz great and historian, Nap Turner for that piece. I was so proud of that article! As a matter of fact, I recently thanked the paper's owner, Denise Rolark Barnes for publishing that for me. She didn't remember, but that was cool. It was my first time being paid to write.

Well, I'm going to stop here to prevent myself from rambling. Do something constructive with your day and pray. This goes for you whether you are religious, spiritual, or other. If you are an atheist or agnostic just keep hope alive. Peace~
