Jamaica Kincaid (pen name) was my model author.

I took an Advanced Memoir Workshop with Dr. Giunta at NJCU in the spring of 2015. She liked my 18-page memoir “Tale of three half sisters”. This was one of the best things that had ever happened to me while I was a student at NJCU. I also got chosen after filling out a survey one of the staff people at NJCU put $200.00 on my Gothic Card. I have kind of always been the kind of person to socialize but mostly stay to myself. I like going out but I also love to blog and do other forms of writing. I appreciated Dr. Giunta giving me Jamaica Kincaid as my model author. I have read Lucy and See Now Then. I think Kincaid’s prose is beautiful. Now that I’m getting noticed for my own writing I’m psyched that I have four nominations for blogger awards. This is better than anything I could have dreamed of having success as a writer.
