My Memoir Challenge

Welcome to my MEMOIR CHALLENGE! Writing is such a journey. As I write these words in my upcoming autobiography, I am inspired to share the process. I begin a Memoir Challenge now. What is the challenge you ask? The Challenge is to cultivate a physical & creative health process that involves a. eating a plant-based refined-sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan diet, doing yoga once a day, and completing my autobiography in time for the #canadianwriterssummit which takes place from June 13-17, 2018. Hmmmm... Am I sure I want to do this? Yes... During the process I will share more about the#anitafrikamethod which is part of the focus of the autobiography. You can ask questions on the posts and I will do my best to answer them. Let’s see how it all goes.  #memoirchallenge #inspiration #blackgirljoy #memoirofanuglyduckling#autobiography #evolution #afrofuturism #booksbywomen #booksbyblackwomen #selfworth#selflove #selfcare #anitafrikamethod #creativity #praxis
