I should. I dont post often anymore, and starting Monday I will go vegan for 21 days.
I could tell you why, eh, I will. It’s for moral support. My sister is dating a guy that is a health nut but not really. Like who eats 12 cookies in a sitting and can still call themselves health… His skinny ass.
Anywho, I’ll be partaking of the festivities for 21 days. It’s really not going to be that much of a change for me… who am I kidding. Like bread is my life force and half of that not vegan. Uhh. I’m still going whip my sisters tell, she is like a tiny t-rex. 120 pound carnivore.
If she cries about ribs, I’ll post it up.
"POINTE is the third book I’ve written about a teenage black girl, but it’s the first in which her race was not the focal point or even a subplot of the story. As someone who grew up black in a predominantly white town in southwest Missouri, I wanted to write a character who dealt with some of the day-to-day issues and obstacles I’d experienced without that being the point of the book. I was very involved in academics and extracurricular activities as a child and teen, and although it was a little tough almost always being the only black person in the room, or being the first black person to, for instance, join my high school’s dance team, I think those years were instrumental in shaping the person I am today. Overall, I had a great time in high school and tried to make the best of it. If people were going to notice me for being different anyway, I wanted them to especially notice me for my accomplishments. I believe Theo has a similar attitude."
author Brandy Colbert (@brandycolbert) talks about her debut novel Pointe, writing a girl of color, her writing advice and much more in our Twitter-style interview.
We’re also giving away a couple of finished copies of Pointe. This is a knock-out contemporary YA novel.
I’ve been hearing all the wonderful things about this book, so you all MUST pick it up and report back.
Never promise forever
Forever is never promised
Merely hoped for
No matter how
Different we see
Within your arms
Is the refuge I shall seek
