Love Pain & Poetry

Write for Life

Write for Life is a Love Pain & Poetry initiative to encourage the world to write for 15 minutes a day for mental health therapy. Everyone is encouraged to participate. 

Busy writing

It's been quite a while since I've blogged. Since the book release I finished book 2 of the Love Pain & Poetry series and I am working on two other collections of poetry.   I have completed two screen plays and started a Novel. I wrote 25,000 words in a week.  I wrote sample query letters and completed a significant amount of research related to queries, history and a court case I was writing about.  

Book two will have a different flow and contain about eight rounds of editing. 

Project 1 is a political based project and is hilarious and uplifting. 

Project 2 is a social justice project that will ease hearts in the face of these trying times. 

The Novel has great potential. I will attempt to get a book deal. It has a great plot and purpose. I believe it can help a lot of lives. 

Screenplay one is a re-enactment of a famous police shooting that I have first hand knowledge. 

Screenplay two is the very last poem of my first book "Love Pain & Poetry".  It's a short film in an attempt to bring awareness and de-stigmatize mental health ailments. 

I also did a radio interview on WMSK radio that you can listen to through their radio app from the i-itunes store or by clicking here for android or go to i-tunes and enter WMSK online radio. Baltimore-Flava-Radio is the station.  

Keep writing people stay healthy.    If you would like an invite to a private reading on December 9 , 2016. Please fill out our email contact form at click newsletter and wait for an email.
