Writer’s Spotlight : You’re In Big Treble by Paris Daniels

Hi guys! For some time, I’d been speaking on hosting an artist spotlight or corner of sorts to promote some of my favorite reads, fellow writers who are both friends and supporters of me, family, other artists, etc. Well, that starts today and I am beyond excited for my first spotlight to focus on fellowContinue reading “Writer’s Spotlight : You’re In Big Treble by Paris Daniels”

“Again” by Cortney Joseph

It was all in the way you touched me, Cold, displeased with the surface each fingertip grazed. I tensed, thinking I’d prepared myself for what had become the usual, a tense prelude to the darkness that shone itself in your eyes as you pulled away, hand raised to the heavens, striking with force that knockedContinue reading ““Again” by Cortney Joseph”

It’s Our Anniversary!

Do you know what today is?! That’s right, MyPenWritesNice is officially 5 years old today. FIVE! It’s so hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that I not only started something big, to me, but I have kept it going in spite of the many obstacles life has thrown my way. I’veContinue reading “It’s Our Anniversary!”

Investments (in self & others) and Excitement (for the future).

I am truly looking forward to the new year. Though I have still had many trying moments in 2021, I can honestly say that this past month alone has given me so much hope and restored my excitement for my future. So, if you guys didn’t catch it, Christmas day I posted a new shortContinue reading “Investments (in self & others) and Excitement (for the future).”

Merry X-Mas, Baby. by Cortney Joseph

Kayla stared closely at the paper resting loosely between her fingertips, in complete disbelief. Tears welled within the ducts of her eyes, threatening to spill as an unconcerned gaze fell upon her. Her unstead hands trembled with each word she read. What was this, and why had it crept into ruin what she intended toContinue reading “Merry X-Mas, Baby. by Cortney Joseph”

Songs To Write To (Holiday Edition)

I have to admit that these past few years, the holidays have not been my favorite times of the year and it’s been a bit hard to get festive in any fashion. Typically around this time, I write a Christmas story or novel of some sort, and I haven’t done that for at least threeContinue reading “Songs To Write To (Holiday Edition)”

Songs To Write To #5

Not sure if I’m the only writer who feels they thrive with period pieces, or settings in the past, but that’s my thing. And most often I like to write to music from whatever time period or era I choose. As a 90s baby/kid, I think I can say with confidence that we had someContinue reading “Songs To Write To #5”

NEW SERIES INTRODUCTION

So, lately I’ve been toying with the idea of what I should do until I finally regain my personal time (it’s so close!) and focus on what is supposed to be my official debut novel. The idea was that I’d be completely done by now and I’d be releasing it on my brother’s birthday, asContinue reading “NEW SERIES INTRODUCTION”

Comin’ Down (My Life Intro – Unfinished Novel Snippet) by Cortney Joseph

Very faintly, I could hear music around me. It was that New Jack that always pumped from the speakers of boom boxes, that dope vibe that I was glad made it’s way into the nineties. This one song though, I’d never heard. Didn’t know the rapper but I definitely knew the singer on the hook.Continue reading “Comin’ Down (My Life Intro – Unfinished Novel Snippet) by Cortney Joseph”
