Show me your desk - more clutter, purse, coconut oil, lipstick brush, rulers, stacks of paper, some coins and more junk.


A messier desk than usual today. So starting from the lower left handsome, there is my Baldwin book of essays, I think I shall return that today. On top of the book are some coins, a pen and my handbag or purse.

Beyond the handbag is my Friday money pot,  where I put my weekly 52 week money challenge cash. Next to it is the coconut oil, I use for my hair, and an old ruler. Yes, sometimes the desk acts as a dressing table. Just sometimes.

Then the regulars - my desk lamp and pencil case. Next is my glasses case and penholder, followed by a greeting card. I used to make greeting cards so that is one from a long time again. Maybe I should start again? I used to be into crafts and I hand made invitations. Big Momma makes cards, and sells them at markets.

Not to digress, and moving on. The box which contains the sauces, and that is an old diary. Yeah, a week later, I still have the liquid lipstick brush squatting on the desk, and black cover is my face cream. I should get round to doing something with it, it's just I've found an alternative lipstick.

However I've been pondering the question 'How do you know when the mascara is finished?' If you have tips let me know, comment below.  Only because, I've never finished a bottle of mascara.

Finally is a pile of books and papers. On top is my current diary which reminds me I need to book some time off work. I'm not having a typical summer vacation due to changing jobs. I normally go to Catalonia, Spain in May or June, once in September but that is at the end of the holiday season and I found the hotels aren't as good at the end of the season. Under the diary is a writing book called the scene book by Sandra Scofield which I've found very useful in analysing different scenes. Then there is a magazine called Teen Breathe which is a spin off from the main magazine Breathe. However I've found this a better and more thoughtful read than the main magazine.

Under the magazine is a stack of papers I need to sort out.

I don't know how people keep a clear desk, I have no clue. My former boss who is amazing, always kept and still keeps a clear desk. And at the end of the day, he would wipe it down. Disinfect the desk. Then again he is the most organised person I know. He put the O in organisation. Great leadership skills too, because when I worked for him, the team was rarely under unduly stress. Work is already stressful enough, so when you work for a boss that can't plan or has no sense of time or the bigger picture....that's stressful.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
