Tyece Wilkins of Twenties Unscripted once said, “Your core relies on your outer tribe and your inner scribe.”

And y’all know I live by the Danielle LaPorte mantra, “Find your tribe. Love them hard.”

My tribe keeps me going in part because they keep going — and keep wrting. I try to set aside time at least once a week to scroll through the See Jane Write Facebook group and read the blog posts, articles and poems See Jane Write members are writing.

Here’s a look at some of my favorite pieces my Janes published this month:

Thanks to Chandra Sparks Splond for featuring me on her site in the blog post “Javacia Harris Bowser writes her way to success.”

Stephanie Naman of Auntie Venom continues her mini series, Love Lessons From My Exes with a guest post from a contributor named Susan. One of my favorite pieces of advice from Susan: “Real love is not about how easy it is. It’s about how hard you’re willing to try when things are not easy.”
