Gearing up for 2006 – Day Three

by Nikki Woods on Saturday, December 31, 2005

We’re rolling on with day three. And our question is: (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)

What would I have done differently? Why?

I really don’t believe in do overs. I think every things happens for a reason and from every situation – a chance to grow. And I’ve done a lot of growing this past year. But since I’m asking you to answer the question; so will I. One thing I think I would have done differently is [...]

Gearing up for 2006 – Day Two

by Nikki Woods on Friday, December 30, 2005

So, today is our day to brag. Don’t hold back. I’m sure you’ll be surprised like I was all that you were able to get done in 2005. Write it down, then give yourself a big hug! I’m proud of you!

2. What did I accomplish?

One accomplishment was completing my debut novel, “Easier Said Than Done” and getting it published. An even bigger accomplishment was keeping my sanity while doing it. I also completed my [...]

Gearing up for 2006 – Day One

by Nikki Woods on Thursday, December 29, 2005

This doesn’t have to take long, you may just want to take a minute and reflect on it. I would love for you to add your comments. See mine below.

1. What did I learn?

I think the most important thing I learned this year is that I can do anything and be successful at it when I really focus. As long as it’s in keeping with God’s will. Sometimes, I may be too scared, or too stressed [...]

Gearing up for 2006!

by Nikki Woods on Wednesday, December 28, 2005

As 2005 comes to an close, one thing that I regret is that I did not journal as much as in past years. For a good reason – I was too busy writing other things. I know that 2006 is going to be my breakthrough year. I have so much bubbling beneath the surface – good and bad – that needs to be brought forth. The good to be developed and the bad to be exorcised. [...]

Reclaiming My Femininity

by Nikki Woods on Saturday, December 10, 2005

“That’s not quite rape.” That was a listener’s response to a call-in which a distraught listener related her emotional trauma that she was still suffering through ten years following a brutal assault at the hands of her fiancee.

“What did you just say?” I asked, incredulously.

“That’s not quite rape.” Seconds ticked by as the rage slowly worked itself to a boil, starting deep inside, burned its way up the back of my neck and had my eyes stinging with [...]

No My First Name Ain’t Baby

by Nikki Woods on Thursday, December 8, 2005

By Guest Blogger Shelia M. Goss

Never thought almost 20 years later, I would be singing lyrics to an old Janet Jackson song, “No, my first name ain’t baby,” but I am.

Why do men take it upon themselves to call women, “baby” during the course of a conversation?

Is [...]

Affirmations for Adversity

by Nikki Woods on Wednesday, December 7, 2005

Whenever you are doing BIG things, challenges will arise. That is a fact. It comes with the territory. Luke 12:48 states that, “To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Required. Biggie said, “More money, more problems.” From the Bible to Hip-Hop, the message is the same. Adversity is the direct challenge to prosperity. And there’s no way to get around it. You have to meet it head on. And that’s what [...]

Moving Day

by Nikki Woods on Tuesday, December 6, 2005

Note: I started a new blog. Kinda had too. This one will be devoted to Cry Me A River, the sequel to Easier Said Than Done. I was writing Chapter Two and I realized that it was getting a bit racy. Uh huh, racy. Author Sylvia Hubbard will appreciate that. Her only critique for Easier Said Than Done was that my love songs weren’t long enough and for lack of a better word [...]
