Just To Start This Off I Would Like To Pay Homage To All The Female Authors Before Me. I’m Just Starting Out On My Journey Of Being A Published Writer.. Rantings Of Mocha Has Only Been Booming For A Short Period Of Time. You’ve Got To Wonder.. Who Laid The Ground Work To Make This Possible For Me To Even Publish My Weird & Corky?! So I Got To Reading And Researching For Myself.. Some Of The Typical Lame Things I Do On My Free Time… Reading About The Struggles, Horrid Racially Unjust Moments, And Personal Accomplishments Of The Toni Morrison’s, The Zora Neale Hurston’s, And The Alice Walkers.. I Personally Feel It Is A Great Idea To Fill Your Mind With Beneficial Literature! One That Will Fill Your Mind, Body, And Soul With That Good-Good! Lmao
