Welcome to the Writeous Babe Project. I'm on a mission to be the author of my own life and help you do the same and that's what this blog is all about. 

What is a writeous babe?
A writeous babe is a woman who writes and lives a life worth writing about. 
A writeous babe is a woman who blogs like a boss. She has an entrepreneurial spirit and is ready to transform her writing into wealth and her blog into a business. 
A writeous babe is not here for the starving artist cliche. She knows she must be a well-fed writer so that she can nourish the world around her.
A writeous babe is a goal digger! She has the imagination to unearth bold and beautiful dreams and the courage to make them come true. 
A writeous babe has some stories and she wants to look good while she shares them. This is not vanity. Her stunning beauty is simply the result of self-care. A writeous babe rejuvenates her body with exercise, replenishes her body with delicious, healthful foods, and restores her body with relaxation and rest.  And everything with which she adorns her body — from the hair on her head to the shoes on her feet — celebrates her unique and authentic style.
A writeous babe believes in women’s empowerment and the sanctity of sisterhood. Thus, part of her life’s work is to help other women and girls find their voices and let them be heard. 
Are you a writeous babe?
Of course you are!
And that's why this is the blog for you. 
Swing by daily for posts on writing, blogging, business, feminism, fitness, fashion, and faith.

The Babe Behind the Blog

In case you want to learn more about me, here's a snazzy bio I put together and wrote in third person to make myself sound important. 

Javacia Harris Bowser is a writer, educator, and entrepreneur based in Birmingham, Ala. She frequently writes about women's issues, race relations, fitness, and business. 

In October 2008, Javacia was struck by a car while crossing a busy street in downtown Louisville. She was leaving The Courier-Journal, the newspaper for which she worked as a reporter and columnist. When her body slammed into the cool, damp asphalt on this rainy night her first thought was, “This is going to make a great column.” 

This story is a perfect illustration of Javacia’s lifelong passion for writing. A native of Birmingham, Javacia returned to her hometown in 2009 to teach early American literature, which explains her crush on Edgar Allan Poe and tendency to quote Ralph Waldo Emerson. She continues her journalism career working as a freelance writer for various media outlets including Birmingham magazine and USA Today. She is a monthly contributor to WBHM 90.3 FM -- Birmingham's NPR station -- and she writes a monthly column on women's issues for B-Metro magazine. 

A self-described "Southern fried feminist," Javacia, in 2011, launched See Jane Write, a network for female writers, bloggers, and entrepreneurs in Birmingham. Javacia turned what started as a small women's writing group into an award-winning business. Because of See Jane Write Javacia was once selected as one of the smartest women in Birmingham by the Women Fund of Greater Birmingham’s SMART Party Committee, selected as one of Birmingham’s Top 40 Under 40 by the Birmingham Business Journal, honored as one of Birmingham's "Women Who Inspire" by Girls on the Run, and featured in a number of local magazines. 

In 2013 Javacia also created and began teaching Women and the Media, a course for high school students that explores the history of feminism and examines representations of women in media.

Javacia has a master’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Alabama

Javacia is married to Edward T. Bowser, a blogger and editor, and is sure she can out dance you any day of the week. When she’s not writing, reading, teaching or dancing, Javacia is usually eating cupcakes or brunch, or cupcakes for brunch, or training for a half-marathon in hopes of burning off all that frosting and French toast.

Javacia is available for freelance feature writing assignments and for speaking engagements on topics such as writing, blogging, social media, and women's empowerment. Samples of Javacia's writing can be found here. Feel free to email her at javacia@writeousbabe.com.

  1. Wow! I can't believe you were hit by a car and all you could think about is what a great column the incident would make, but then again, I am a writer, too, so I know that kind of passion. You rock!
