Creative Imaginings: Ahoy, there Maties!

Reading & Writing are so cathartic for me, that I can't help but pressure peers and strangers to try their hand at it. So of course I love to spotlight individuals and classic literature in my Creative Imaginings segments; but I wanted to shortly focus on MY skills!
 
So your girl is slowly but surely becoming a published writer
Who knew? Well I'm sure my bff Zuri Hall who is currently the FACE of MYIndyTV & co-conspirator/writer would boast that she knew before I knew me. And yes that was a blatant shout out. :)

But I've been writing semi-professionally since I was 11, for the local youth magazine in Toledo, OH; CurioCity & Kidzone; sadly if you google the publication it doesn't pop out. Probably due to the lack of relevance of the Internet in the 90s.

I (& Zuri hall) took a creative writing class at Owens Community College’s High School Writers Workshop Program (in 2004 or 2005) and got our poetry published in the program’s annual literary magazine, “Belles Lettres”.

I also have a lot of unpublished work; for instance I've wrote my first screenplay in 2009, entitled "Nine" --and no it isn't a musical. I also have loads of written poetry that haven't made it to the blog; speaking of the blog.. be sure to check out my poetry blog


So while I'm not a newbie to the print media; I'm a newbie to the rapid publishing due to the world wide web. Specifically my newly published articles in the online magazine, A Word For My Sistas.


I'm loving every minute and currently I'm working on creating my bio! But until than, Ciao!

Sex it Up!

I'm an avid realist but whenever I think about working out I'm thrown into a dreamy state. I want that Beyonce body but I'm too lazy to put in the actual work. Running on a treadmills, bicycling to no-mans land, and lifting weights can easily stagnate your life and body. So how can you get that body you've always wanted?

Sex it up. Literally. I find that having a sexy workout uplifts my mood, eases boredom, and is a definite confidence booster. But more importantly with a sexier workout you'll burn more calories due to short burst of energy when changing up the routine and did I mention it was sexy???

1. Belly dancing is my favorite way to tone my body and improve my posture. With a moderate to fast pace, women can loose weight, gain muscle definition, and improve their coordination. This relaxing low-impact sensually stimulating workout will exercise you from head to toe.

2. Salsa isn't just a dip, it's a great way to build up your stamina and burn those calories. Whether your heading out for a night with the girls, planning a seduction, or dancing in the mirror learning to Salsa is a great way to exercise. Salsa is a perfect way to reduce stress, gets your heart pumping, and you'll be sure to gain a new social network with this titillating dance.

3. Poles aren't just for fire-fighters and strippers anymore. This new age workout is causing headlines around the world with Pole Championships/Miss Pole competitions in Moscow, USA, Australia, and Jamaica. Women of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, and flexibilities are toning their gluttes, legs, arms, and abs through pole fitness. If grasping a pole isn't your forte than try the similar genre of Exotic dancing to create that hour-glass figure.

So what do you wear for your sexy workout? A bit of this and a bit of that. Whatever makes you comfortable and what makes you feel sexy. So if its a pair of leggings, dress, or boy shorts throw them on with a sensible pair of shoes. For salsa and pole fitness make sure your heels are under 6'. For belly dancing barefoot is best.

To find local classes in your city or nearby ask around or just google it. If you're short on cash, can't make the time to for lessons, or just a teeny bit embarrassed? Well utilize your library, Blockbuster/Family Video, check out the community calendar in your local paper, or the easily accessibly Youtube and workout in your home.

Creative Imaginings:Safe In Your Arms- Tierra Allen

"Who says your EX can’t be your NEXT? ...When Tyran and Julian decide to go “all or nothing,” they learn it’s not what you say and do that break a bond, but what you don’t say and don’t do that etch cracks in the hearts of the ones you love. With their pasts behind them, Tyran’s ready to move forward with her God-send, until incident after incident reveals their safety net has major holes in it. Determined to be a beacon of light and a consistent support to her man, Tyran may need a lighthouse and rescue team of her own, when it’s all said and done... Do the two have what it takes to steer their love in the right direction or will they sail apart?"

I know that brief synopsis has you panting for more, so let's meet up-and-coming talented author Tierra Allen who penned the contemporary romance novel, “Safe in His Arms.” Taken directly from her self-titled website, "Tierra Allen unapologetically brings creativity back to the literary arena. She paints vivid pictures with words that leave readers hanging on at every page. Born and raised in Oklahoma City, OK, she’s a proud graduate of The University of Oklahoma where she earned her B.A. in Sociology. Safe in His Arms is the first novel by the talented authoress, who currently resides in Houston, TX."

His Color and You: Why Black Women Are Single

Although we are constantly at odds with the global community, there is one huge thing that is agreed on. Interracial dating/marriage is taboo among cultures that are traditional, homogeneous, and hold stereotypical view. Those who purposefully seek interracial relationships are doing so to lash out at their parents, join the middle/upper class, sexual deviants, and are mentally ill aka self image issues/self-hate.

How harsh and medieval are those ideas? Just google Dr. Laura Schlessinger or think about the initial reaction most people (yourself included) have when seeing a mixed-raced couple --stereotypically a black man and white woman. Exactly.
