Carey's Random Thoughts

April 26, 2018

I met him! Met him! I'm besides myself with excitement and it was a week ago. EJD's the BEST! He was friendly, he was patient, and he was kind. He signed my favorites book, and he chatted with me. I've been watching as many interviews of his as I can. Checkout my blog for ramblings about the best day EVER!


Yesterday I woke upper thinking about stuffed animals.

Sitting on bed staring at my keyboard. Procrastination at it's finest. I should be writing or editing. What am I doing? You wanna know? You really wanna know? I'm watching videos of Beyonce at Coachella yesterday. Can you believe that while I was having dinner in the city with my love she was blowing people's mind with her performance that paid tribute to HBCU's? Everytime she stands still and looks around, I think about Michael Jackson when he called it sizzling. See how I'm off into another place, the place of being entertained instead of entertaining.  

I need to get moving on something. I've been on break over a month now. The longest break I've ever taken in 5 years. Normally the story burns inside of me until I put it on paper. You seen what happened last month though. I had to throw it all away. So now I'm waiting to start over. 

MEANWHILE! EJD's newest release comes out TUESDAY! I feel like Norbit, "TUESDAY! TUESDAY! TUESDAY! TUESDAY! TUESDAY! TUESDAY! TUESDAY!" I cant wait for the day when someone feels like that about my work. When you have thousands hovering over their computers and physical bookstores dying to get their hands on your latest book. 


Kelp makes your mouth feel like you took a tablespoon of salt. I NEED WATER!

DAG NABIT! It's happening AGAIN! Um, I think this thought is worthy of a blog. Going to my blog to work this thought out. Until we meet again. I'll add the link to the blog post for this random thought in just a moment. Click Here


Running from feelings makes me write as well.

Earlier today I thought of something AMAZING to share with you. Something to tickle your side just a little. Then I had to wait until I got home to post it. By the time I got here I forgot. It was going to be FUNNY! I'll have to think of it tomorrow. Next time I will write it down. Yes! Next time I'll write it down. Good night! 


Apparently I obsess over people... (Coughs) M'Baku! That is all!

So I was reading my December 2017 blog post about the finale to the Wallace and Latour Saga. I made myself laugh as I read my summation of the finale. Check it out:

So you want to know what you can expect in this finale? You remember what happened that time in Present right? What Comes Next is exactly that! In a nutshell 🥜 here's what happens in the finale. Not necessarily in this order:

People grow up!
People die!
Malcolm goes off!
People Die! 
Cars blow up!
New people are born! 
People are smart!
Darryl makes you laugh! "Goo Goo Ga Ga!"
People are dumb!
People Die! 
People are emotional! (Not just Tracy and Lanie)
People get together! 
People break up! 
People Die! 
People let go and move on! 
Malcolm squints! 
People Die!
People Die!
What Comes Next 
Season 2 of the 
Together We Are Strong series.

Now that you've read it, wouldn't you agree? LOL! That's about it. 


I want some peach upside down cake. I think I'm going to make it. Kiss my diet GOODBYE!

One of my Beta Readers and I have been talking over the past few days about the final version of the finale of my series. I think sometimes I take it for granted that my Beta Readers know where I'm going with details that I insert the stories. My beta readers let me know if I've written something worth reading. Their reactions are so crucial to my entire process. I am forever grateful for them.

I like to laugh, I actually feel like there aren't enough opportunities to laugh. I WISH I was as funny as Darryl! Between my brother and my sister I do get to have regular laughs though. They are hilarious! Just thought I'd share something random with you. 

Did you know I have inspiration boards on Pinterest? I've used a picture of a Black Panther to represent Malcolm since the beginning. I'm waiting for an actor to surface who could embody Malcolm for me (us).

Come back soon, I may have something else random to say at another time.
