I made my goal word count for January 2017 and it is 40,000 words. I am going to go for it! I have 48 pages so far. I will work on my memoir for the rest of the year. In January I’ll check Facebook to see when Edi announces the next meeting of the NJCU (Memoir) Writers Workshop. I’ll print out my memoir at the library and make the necessary changes on paper and then probably reprint my memoir just before the meeting time is set for the NJCU (Memoir) Writers Workshop in January 2017. I will see Edi at 10am this Saturday for Alumni Day. She’s having a 9am and a 10am workshop and I said I will be there for the 10am workshop.
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 41-credit Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education by 2021. I go to NJCU. I have a BA in Creative Writing from NJCU. I graduated from NJCU in August 2015. I transferred to NJCU from Mercer. I have my AA degree from Mercer in Humanities and Social Sciences since May 2007. I write poems, I write memoirs, I'm a blogger and I am taking a children's writer course. I love reading memoirs and I do book reviews from time to time. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
