I have made these mistakes listed in this article below. As a woman writer we just do everything differently than men writers do. Women let’s not keep making the same mistakes.

Why isn’t every traditional publisher out there taking notice of all the great writers? There was a boom of color writers during the Harlem Renaissance (1919-1940). Later on colored writers did not stop and good thing or we wouldn’t have Toni Morrison, or in the Latin community we wouldn’t have Gabriel Garcia Marquez, or Native Americans like Leslie Marmon Silko and lastly there wouldn’t be any Mideast writers like Khaled Hosseini. I have read their great works and highly recommend people to step outside of the white bubble the publishing companies push in front of us. We are a society of mixed cultures. NO longer a white dominant society. Writers of every color should be examined by their works and not their skin color. Wake up! See all the beautiful colors in the world. Don’t turn a blind eye to a name you don’t recognize. Or you will be missing out on some great stories.
To those about to read, we salute you.

A window to my brain. I'm a writer.

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
