My Experiences as a Writer
February 5, 2019

I’ve been writing for many years. I started writing when I was in Elementary School. Entering creative writing contests and reading my work in front of the class and audience. I’ve written many poetic pieces and presented my poetry online, offline, and on stage. My work has been published and I’ve been invited to present my poetry to different locations. Writing is very rewarding however writing online is difficult when there’s so much competition. Competitors have tried to discourage my continuing to write but my dedication and motivation continues to be with me!

I’m excited to have incurred many opportunities to advance within the writing spectrum. Being a writer is a blessing although there’s many trials to overcome. Writers should learn how to overcome the criticism. Many critics have discouraged writers which they shouldn’t do. Although I’ve been criticized I’ve taken the critics criticism as a learning tool. Writing is a gift in which I’m so blessed to have. I’ve written plays, songs, poems and I’m continuing to write a poetry book.

Writing offline has created privacy and peacefulness in which every writer should experience. It’s important that I’m able to experience peace as a writer and as a human being. My presentations have caused encouragement to further my gift (s). My blessed hands have allowed me=Tanikka Paulk to write with my right hand and left although writing with my left hand is difficult I’m daring sometimes. “To be a writer is truly the upmost rewarding experience the competitors are motivators. Continuing to writer because I’m a writer.” By: Tanikka Paulk

To be surrounded by the quietness will allow further developments within my writing. The discoveries and the journey’s in which some are too afraid to travel. The televised caption of myself has also encouraged such a journey. Some are unable to understand writers but I’ve read some of what some have perceived as complex writing and really enjoyed the work. There’s so many undiscovered writers but I’m determined to supply the exposure in which so many writers are geared for.

My work has been published online and offline. I’m continuing to journal my work and place the masterpieces where need be. There’s the further exploring of environmental poetry. Observing the creations in which God has supplied the world. Writers should be proud of their work. Some have given up because of the critics and harsh competitors. I’m refusing to forfeit my writing just because of what the critics have to say. “Writing develops as time goes by and a determined writer will experience what the others are too afraid to experience.” by: Tanikka Paulk

Moma and Patty Sue Talking
January 21, 2019

Moma: “Patty Sue gone and eat ya dinner before ya dinner gets cold.”

Patty Sue: “Moma I’s a grown woman now and I aint no little child anymore Moma”

Moma: “Patty Sue why ya always saying such a thing? I know ya grown but ya stills my little girl.”

Patty Sue: “When I finish this here dinner Moma I’s going to my room because I’s in love Moma.”

Moma: “What!” Girl gone with ya silly talk. (laughing)

Patty Sue: “I’s for real Moma I aint ever felt this way before. I’m just one loving kind of girl Moma.”

Moma: Oh yeah! What’s his name?”

Patty Sue: “I have to tell what his name is later Moma.”

Patty Sue: “I’m so smitten. Oh my gosh Moma I really love him. He is so kind to me! Yes indeed.”

Charles: “What’s going on in here/”

Moma: “Patty Sue says she is in love Charles.”

Charles: “What?” In love what kind of love?” There’s different levels of love.”

Patty Sue: “Ya’ll gone talk about me while I’s still in the room?”

Moma: “Girl we’s aint talking behind ya back.” (chuckles)

Charles: “Hand me those mittens I’s gone do some yard work later on.”

Patty Sue: “I’m going up to my room and think about my man.”

Moma: “Ya man” What kind of thinking ya doing?” He must be a savy kind of dude huh Patty?”

Patty Sue: “He is more than a woman could dream of.” He certainly knows how to knock me off my feet.”

Charles: “What the other woman’s saying about da man?”

Patty Sue: “oh the hens be eyeing him down and trying to conversate with him but I’s be paying the hens no attention.” “See the women want his attention or perhaps the women need him because he seems as though he is such a giving kind of man and all.”

Moma: “I’m sure he is giving alright!” Giving what ya aint seeing.”

Patty Szue: “What ever do yur mean Moma?”

Moma: “The women wouldn’t hang around da ole man for no reason chld. He must’ve gave the women someing.”

Patty Sue: “I’s haven’t seen what’s he was givin. No Moma I aint seen what he was givin perhaps I’s notice the next go round.”

Charles: “Yeah perhaps Patty Sue will.” Ya gone notice a lot.”

Patty Sue leaves the room and begins to head up to her room. As soon as Patty Sue opens her door the phone began to ring. Patty Sue paced the room (excited) about the ringing of the phone. Patty answered and on the other end was a stern sounding voice. Patty Sue held the phone close and was silent before hanging up the phone Patty Sue glanced at . . . . . .


There’s more whatever will Patty Sue do about her new found love? Perhaps the audience will find out later. Patty Sue was excited before picking up the phone but what was the man saying on the other end of the phone? Have to wait to find out what he was saying. Perhaps Patty Sue will reveal exactly what was said. Whatever the man was saying seemed to shake Patty Sue.
