How do I fund a dream? Money don't grow on trees.

What can we do as woman to make money for our dreams?

 I’ve been following my writing dream for some time. The journey itself has become a story. But, along the way I discovered clever ways to fund some of the things I wanted to do. In my case it was to write books and to create them. Before I started I had no idea where it would take me and finding myself single after 20 years of marriage I soon began to realize that some of the things I did before like travel to writer’s conferences…

FoodFic Look at Iqbal

13-year-old Fatima works in a carpet factory, bonded to master Hussain Khan to pay off her family’s debt. Khan keeps the total amount owed on a slate beside each child worker's loom, lightening the debts by one rupee for each full day of satisfactory work. When all the debt lines have been…

Good Morning!

Good morning on this quiet Friday. Well it was quiet since as I write these words Mr Woodpecker is back doing his thing on a metal pipe. In fact. he is here every morning. You have to admire determination like that, even if it is a bit noisy.

What will you determine to undertake today? You know you can do it,…

[SWP: Behind the Book] From the Ashes

 My memoir rose from the ashes.  This is not a metaphor, by the way. My entire neighborhood was destroyed by a devastating firestorm in 1991. My book would not exist had my home and my neighborhood not been reduced to ashes. At the time, I didn’t know that this life-changing event would be the inspiration for a book. I was living through a nightmare and wasn’t taking notes.…

Writing

There are days when I don't know why I started on this journey. There are days when I want to retire from an art form, which is so overwhelmingly beautiful that my pen at night wakes me up. It consumes my imagination and my heart.

I wanted to throw the towel in so many times. Especially when no one around me seemed to understand why I was so very much in love with it. How could I make anyone understand something that was so deep in my subconscious that I couldn't even understand it…

From "Women's Health" to "Women's and Men's Health"

One of my role models as a woman is U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg    a woman of justice and wisdom, of strength throughout adversity, and of character with courage. In many ways, she brings to mind the Greek goddess Athena, whom she admired as a child and who was known for her beauty and surpassing wisdom.

When I was reading assigned cases during law school, I always looked forward to reading Ginsburg's opinions,…

Good news for collectors (sometimes)

Something I've found while researching The Stowaway is a vast and (to me, at least) surprising discrepancy in the prices of out-of-print books. Some academic volumes from the ancient days of the 1980s are so expensive I can't justify buying one for a single essay on Peter Pan. But in a much happier turn of events, books from the turn of the 19th century are often ridiculously affordable. They're sold…

The Washington Post reviews Kalisha’s new novel SOLEMN.

Author and professor Kim McLarin reviews Solemn for The Washington Post, writing: “Reading this story, I found it difficult (though ridiculously unfair) not to think of Toni Morrison’s first novel, “The Bluest Eye,” not only because “Solemn” is told in a similar, fragmented style but also because both center on young, black girls wounded by the…

Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:1

Here we see that God himself was hovering over the waters in the earth. Now the word hovering means "(of a person) wait or linger close at hand in a tentative or uncertain manner" according to…
