Where did Autumn go? Honestly, I was wearing a bomber jacket, which was going to be my transition coat and I was freezing my arse off. I was so confused because just last week it was really warm. So I had to dig out my winter coat and then I realised it's bloody October. I legit can't keep up with the days. Then I had this cold and an annoying tickle cough, you know the ones that give you a coughing fit and a sore throat. I tried everything and then I found that Vix on the chest, back and feet and Pholcodine from Boots would do the trick. I swear down, after two days, I was cured.
The entries for The little BIG Book Comp was crazy good. The standard was so high and it took me ages to decide who to pick because there were so many fab stories. In the end, I chose thirteen, year old Jodie Martin and you can read her brilliant story Young Hope HERE
I want to publish their stories under Hashtag Press next year. And, the comp is open again till December 18th so get your stories in.
Speaking of Hashtag Press - we have TWO meetings with Clays and CPI this month. They basically publish most books and teaming up with them will defo be a good move.
Good news! I have a title for book 2 of Emily Knight. My goodness, it took me ages to think of one but it's called I AM AWAKENED and it will be out 2017. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!! The joke is when you read the book, you will think why did she struggle for a title. It's the right fit for the book and I don't know why it took me ages to think off.
I got booked for the Stoke Newington Literary Festival 2017!! No-one understands how long I have been trying to get into it and I met with the organisers yesterday and they are lovely and they want me involved. That is another tick for my list of things I want to achieve before I am 30.
Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. Sad to say but I didn't like it. I get the pressure to release it as a book, but I don't think it should have been. Plus, my brother has been trying to get me tickets to the play and I think it is sold out till this time NEXT YEAR
Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump debate. I don't know what anyone else thought but Donald sounded so dumb
Kim K Paris robbery. Wow. What gets me is people on Twitter saying it can't be real because she didn't Snapchat it! Hopefully this has given her a big wake up call. Whether Kim is your cup of tea, she's a person and the comments are too intense. I love Chrissy Teigan (go on her Twitter) she was cussing everyone left right and centre. One guy tweeted at her and asked if she was famous? And she said 'famous enough not to put my whole cv on my bio.' Looool slam-dunk!
Solange's album Seat at the Table is honestly one of the best albums I have heard. It speaks so much volume and it's inspiring and beautiful. I think my fav songs are MAD and F.U.B.U. We need more content in the world, for us and by us. The amount of silly racist things I have been seeing over things like Luke Cage on Netflix, it's bloody refreshing to hear something uplifting black people.
I did my second dance class of the year lool the other day. It was a commercial class and oh my, it was ALOT. I swear he taught 10/8's in 1 hour. Towards the end, it just started merging into one, sweat was in my eyes, my top was drenched, so I just started doing a fist pump. When all else fails, do a fist pump.
