It was my first time in Bull Bay, it’s beautiful, this beach, black […]

  • Writing 201: Fingers

    Our Little Secret Sparks lingered where his fingers traced patterns on my back, lightly, a feather soft touch. It left me in a daze, all the while trying to focus, small circle, a line, down the arch of my spine. This is driving me insane, and I could see he was enjoying this game. Our lips […]

  • Writing 201: Heroine

    Heaven Sent She’s heaven sent, truly a gift to me. She’s heaven sent, she’s never worked a day after my mother was born, always giving a helping hand without showing scorn.

Day 2, Journey. Prompt: […]

  • Writing 101: A Character-Building Experience

    He was strolling up the pathway, towards us,  greeting everyone he passed, stopping to speak to some, while others wanted pictures with him.  You could tell he was humble just by the way he tread through the crowd. He was the man of the hour, we were waiting for him and the late start was expected because Jamaicans being […]
