Why I Write

Why do I write? I don’t aways enjoy writing. It’s because I have so much to say, and it’s hard to get it out. I feel like I have trouble communicating. I over think everything, plus I have a tendency to put my foot in my mouth. I have no idea how to get started, and how to organize my thoughts.

I’m trying to figure out what the message is for Dope Queens. Are we just history? Are we empowering people? Are we political? All art is political. But what am I trying to do? I want black girls to see all the amazing things black women have done. We are amazing.

I want to show the world how exceptional black women are. We are daughters, mothers, wives, and single. We occupy every profession in the world. We are straight, lesbian, gay, bi, cis, trans, genderqueer. We are people, but the world doesn’t want to treat us that way.

The Dope Queens project is about cosplay. I love cosplaying as these women. I love taking the time to find costumes and wigs. I love writing the bios, even though I probably overthink what I’m writing. I love posing for pictures. I love educating people! I hope this project blows up.

I learn something new every day. I enjoy researching the women we profile. It’s just a lot of work! But, that’s ok. It’s just hard putting things into my words. I don’t want to plagiarize someone accidently. I don’t think my bios are interesting enough. That’s my goal, to make the bios interesting. I need some advice on that. I need a mentor!

I can’t wait for school to let out so I can focus on this project. I want to grow Dope Queens this summer. I can’t wait to see my sister in a few weeks! I hope we can get this thing off the ground. We just need to be more organized.


  1. Don’t over think it, just let your creativity flow! I just started my blog too, and sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the blogging world, but what’s more important is that you foster your writing voice and your art, with the right intentions in your heart and mind, you’ll get where you need to be!
