Excerpt- 

Chapter 1

All Natural Hair Salon’s busiest time was the first weekend of the month. Fatima made it to the salon at ten o’clock that morning. After parking her car in front of the salon, she noticed Lauryn and Sheba were already inside. The front window shades were pulled back and the lights were on.

“Good morning, ladies,” Fatima said as she walked through the door.

“Good morning, Fatima,” Lauryn answered, while sashaying to her workstation in her high heels and locs pulled back into a lobster tail style. Always the diva, Lauryn appeared to be in a good mood and eager to work.

“Hey, girl, you finally made it in,” Sheba said as she sorted through her laundry bag of towels. Her hair was loose in a kinky and curly twist-out hairstyle. She was dressed comfortably in white skinny jeans.

“Are there any messages for me?” Fatima asked.

“A young lady called to make an appointment. She requested a low maintenance hairstyle.”

“What time did she call?” Fatima inquired.

“She called a few minutes before you walked in,” Lauryn replied. “She said her name was Danielle Evans.”

“Did she leave her phone number?”

“I put it on your desk,” she said.

Fatima continued to her station so she could check her itinerary for the day. It was unusually free. “I’ll just work a half day and meet up with my honey later,” she told her co-workers.

Fatima then sat in her chair and started daydreaming about the day she would become Mrs. Ephraim Okoye. She could not wait to see him.

“Ladies, what are your plans today?” Fatima questioned.

“I have a couple of appointments for locs retightening, and I got a new client scheduled this morning. He’s a chef and new in town.” Lauryn smirked while doing a shimmy with her shoulders to show her excitement.

“A new male client? Girl, you be pullin’ the men,” teased Sheba.

“I need to pull a husband.”

“Baby, I met my husband when I wasn’t even lookin’. I was minding my own business down at the Farmer’s Market and––”

Lauryn rolled her eyes. “Sheba, you’ve told that story so many times,” she said, cutting Sheba off and looking down at her iPad to show her disinterest in hearing it again.

Sheba walked over to Lauryn and tapped her on the knee with her forefinger. “When you least expect it, that’s when you’re gonna meet him. It happened to me, girl!”

“I wish God would hurry up and send him!” Lauryn snipped. “Most married people forget what it’s like to be single, so it’s easy for them to tell someone else to be patient.”

“That’s not true,” Sheba replied.

Fatima butted in. “Some women who are married have never had to experience being single for long.”

“Don’t you just hate that, girl?” Lauryn said. “Then they try to tell you to wait and have faith. Chile, please!”

 

Guest Post Six: Why Writing is a Form of Personal Therapy

Writing can be a form of personal therapy.  I love to write in my journal.  Journaling is a great way to release emotions.  If there is something that you want to express in private, writing down your thoughts is a great option.  Writing down your thoughts and feelings that have can relieve stress and tension.

If someone has experience traumatic events in their life writing down the memories may be a form of healing.  Writing down your emotions and feelings can prevent depression.  Writing about your dreams can emerge into a creative story.  From my personal experience, writing in my journal has been therapeutic.  Some writers create stories based on personal life experiences.  By writing down your personal story, you can find your own voice and can create a compelling story.

Writing personal stories allows you to experience personal growth and reflection.  You can write down your personal thoughts in a journal that will result in creative expression.  Writing exercises are a great way of brainstorming ideas and can help you recollect personal memories.  From my experience, writing exercises is therapeutic and it allowed me to release emotions.  I was able to recall different life events when I use writing exercises.

By sharing your personal thoughts and stories, you can inspire and motivate your audience.  You can transform your journal writing into a short story, a novel or poetry to publish. Revise your personal thoughts and stories and find your theme to create a draft.  You can create a draft for a poem, short story, novel, article or a prayer.  Have your draft edited and proofread before publishing.  You can share your completed work on your blog, website or in a book.  Writing for personal therapy can be a liberating experience.
