From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?
"Obliged to you for hearing me, and I do have a few things more to say..."

Getting Stuff Done

      Finished another manuscript this week!! This time for a children's picture book that I've been working on for a couple of years. I just finished uploading it on Inkubate. I'm going to ask one local subject-matter expert to read and review it, and hopefully write me a blurb, before I begin sending it out.
     In other big news, I was accepted into a grad school program. No more excuses for procrastinating on getting that done now, though between pimping out my manuscripts and working and going to school part time, actual writing time is becoming alarmingly scarce...
