Inspiration and motivation became the foundation of many creative’s careers. As a multi-faceted individual, my creativity became a cycle of work inspiring and motivating each other – both written and visual. My storytelling began with this cycle and hopefully continues as I pursue a multi-faceted career.
This week, I allowed myself to go back and forth on my writing journey. I went between my two loves – fiction and screenwriting. The two genres fed each other as I wrote like a speed demon to finish them. My fiction writing mixed technicality and fully-realized stories and characters while my screenplay maintained the format and structure with a story-like appeal. I wanted to my work to display as much as personality and imagination when people are finally able to see it. I’ve loved my work influencing each other and in turn influencing my progression as a writer. Since finishing my first act, I’ve been on fire with my writing.
I kept up the same creative hopping from last week as I switched between screenwriting, fiction writing, and visual output. I fleshed out my children’s series a little more and started a fiction piece. I finished my visual piece from last week while moving on to the next project. My presence on social media and online continued to grow as this blog and my work continued to gain attention.
As my summer draws to a close, I look forward to unveiling my progress to my professors. I still have some loose ends to tie up before the quarter starts, but my thesis journey is taking a new turn. For the first time in a while, I’m not afraid of what’s around the corner.
Come back next week for more on my journey to creating my Master’s thesis.

Hi! I’m a writer-director new to Atlanta as well as new to the Writer of Color Atlanta Facebook group. Saw your post there which brings me here. As a fellow writer who just came out of my MFA Playwriting thesis year at Columbia University, I bid you all of the sanity and creative juices you need to push through successfully to the end of your degree. You’ve got this! Congrats on all of your success thus far and may our artistic paths cross in the future.
Thanks for the encouragement. I know we’ll cross paths at some point in that small pool known as entertainment.
