Stocktaking – Goodbye September

Word Count = 400

Estimated Reading Time = 2 minutes

Hello love. I don’t know about you but 2021 seems to be in a hurry to get done. Just the other day I was struggling through the worst New Year and now we’re talking of three months left to the end of the year. If nothing else I want to thank God for his grace and actually getting me this far. I truly did not imagine it would be possible.

Stocktaking – Goodbye July

Hey love. July is over and hopefully the cold with it. I cannot wait for the sun to come out and blaze as usual. I’m just not used to having to put on so many layers.

In other news, I have been doing a lot better as far as writing is concerned. I made a short story submission to EkonkeSweet Little Virgins, which should be coming up soon. I’ll put up the link here as soon as it’s up.

Stocktaking – Goodbye June

Word Count = 263

Estimated Reading Time = 1 minute 20 seconds

Hey love. Now June is done and I have to say, it has been quite the bitter cold month. Also, I think I sprained my ankle because my foot swells up to about double its size at the end of every day.

Don’t worry though, I got the doc to look at it so it should be good with rest and putting it up. Lesson learned, don’t run every single day without giving yourself enough breaks. Breaks are important too.

Stocktaking – Goodbye May

Word Count = 220

Estimated Reading Time = 1 minute

Hey love. So after quite the eventful beginning of the year, I’ll have to say that May was quite slow. There were no guest posts, but only because I just couldn’t bring myself to write.

Everything I strung together just felt wrong and a part of me wanted to shift to children’s stories while the other part of me wanted to keep writing erotica. In the end, I was just too lazy to fight with myself and decided to do absolutely nothing about it.

Stocktaking – Goodbye April

Estimated Reading Time = 1 minute 47 seconds

Hey love, another month, another opportunity for awesomeness. April was a good one. The writing bug kept biting and I gladly let into the disease that is storytelling. Amidst said disease, a certain birdie by the name Lexa spread some word about my writing and I got another chance to guest post.

Unexpectedly so, I was contacted through Instagram. I had began to lose hope in the platform’s ability to benefit me at this point, but I guess it has redeemed itself. Good job Insta.

Stocktaking – Goodbye March

Word Count = 462

Estimated Reading Time = 2 minutes 20 seconds

Hey Love. How has March been like for you? It was definitely quite the rollercoaster for me. I turned a year older, made a few stupid decisions here and there, and rewarded myself with a good dose of procrastination. In other words, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. For one, I got published on Rafinki.

Stocktaking – Goodbye February

Estimated Reading Time = 3 minutes 40 seconds

Hey love. So another month has come and gone and this time I’ll have to admit that things are looking up. February as a whole has been a learning period for me. For one, I’ve had to learn how to live without my dad. As a boy, heck as a man, my father was everything. He was my hero.

There was absolutely no question he couldn’t answer; no problem he couldn’t solve. It was so second nature for me to “fall”, that not until now did I realize that I never expected him not to catch me.

The Journey Begins

Word Count = 516

Estimated Reading Time = 2 minutes 35 seconds

I keep coming back to this poem I wrote about 2 years ago and I think I now understand why. Allow me to expound.

Starting over is something I’ve done a couple of times before and each and every time I do so with a renewed perspective and drive. I think it’s a universal rule that it’s impossible to see the end from the start. The good thing though is that in spite of this, it’s such an ethereal experience to look back at the beginning once you get to the end.
