Follow the Fun

Tuesday, March 28, 2023

Follow the fun! That's one of the lessons my soon-to-be-launched podcast is teaching me.


Last year, I grappled for months with the decision to start a podcast or not. And then once I decided to start one, I struggled to settle on a topic because I had so many different ideas.

Then one day a member of my writing collective -- See Jane Write -- said to me, "Just do what's going to bring you the most joy."


What simple, but powerful advice! I decided to follow it and that's how The Writeous Babe Podcast: The Grown Woman's Guide to Journaling came about.


My podcast hasn't even launched yet and my decision is already paying off. Because I've been talking about journaling so much, I've been invited to lead -- and get paid for -- journaling workshops for 4 different organizations.


So if you're struggling to decide which of your goals to work on next -- follow the fun and choose what sparks joy.

The Babe is Back!

Monday, March 27, 2023

I'm reviving the Writeous Babe brand once again but this time for something a lot more uplifting than a cancer diagnosis

I'm starting a podcast! 

The Writeous Babe Podcast is the grown woman's guide to journaling, giving you the inspiration and practical tools you need to create a life-changing journaling practice.
I believe you have the power to write your way through anything and to the life of your dreams.
Each week tune in for uplifting conversation and thought-provoking prompts that will help you write your way to the best version of yourself.
Tentatively set to launch on Wednesday, March 29, the Writeous Babe Podcast will be available wherever you listen to podcasts.
I'm also reviving the Writeous Babe Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts, so let's get social!
I'm so excited about this new venture and I hope you'll come with me on this journey.

How It Started; How It’s Going: The Cancer Edition

Wednesday, December 2, 2020


On January 24, 2020, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.


Today, on December 2, 2020, I had my last round of radiation, completing active cancer treatment.


Here’s a look at everything that happened in between.

What "I'm hanging in there" really means

Friday, September 25, 2020

We need to talk. 

Inspiring. That's the word many of you have been using to describe me as I've been sharing my battle with breast cancer journey on my blogs and social media. You've seen me working and writing and blogging and building a business while undergoing chemotherapy and you've said I motivate you to keep going. 

And I'm very glad you feel that way. In fact, one of the reasons I decided to be open and honest about my diagnosis was that I'd hoped I would inspire you to go after your dreams even when your circumstances are far from ideal. 

When you text me or send me a DM via Instagram to ask how I'm doing, I probably respond with the same answer each time: "I'm hanging in there." 

But I need to let you know what that really means. 

My Brother and Me

Wednesday, August 19, 2020


When I told my brother I’d been diagnosed with breast cancer he responded just as I knew he would:Man, you got this. This shit ain’t gonna beat you. Imma holla at God tonight, tell him to take care of my big sister and you gonna be straight.”

And that was that. I knew I would be fine because my baby brother said so.

Even though I am 7 years and 6 months older than my brother, even though I cooked his breakfast on the weekends, taught him how to tie his shoes and helped him with homework, in some ways he has taken care of me as much as I’ve helped take care of him.

15 Confessions

Saturday, May 23, 2020


I can’t keep my own secrets – especially when it comes to cancer.


So, I have some things to confess.


1.     If you ask me to do something within the next 8 months and I don’t want to do it, I will play the cancer card.

2.     If I’m in a FitBit competition with you and I lose I’m going to play the cancer card.
