Month: March 2020

Member of the Month: Tawanna Jones

When Tawanna Jones first joined the See Jane Write Collective I knew she’d be a stand-out member. She was clear on her writing and blogging goals and she dove into our members-only resource library to learn what she needed to accomplish those goals.

When See Jane Write launched its partnership with Reckon Women, Tawanna was one of the first people to submit an essay to be published on, an essay that told the story of her struggle with depression and how she has overcome it.

Recently, Tawanna launched a new inspirational website and blog, Rise Up and Soar, and on March 14 she will be speaking at Motherhood: The Remix, a conference to be hosted by board-certified psychiatrist Dr. Leesha Ellis-Cox in Birmingham, Alabama.

I’m proud to present the See Jane Write Member of the Month for March, Tawanna Jones.


How to Finally Accomplish Your BIG Writing Goal

Last year I decided that my fitness goal for 2020 would be to walk for exercise every day for 366 consecutive days. So far, I’ve stuck with this despite having a medical procedure in January and outpatient surgery just last week. On February 26, I had surgery that morning and still went for a walk that afternoon.

Am I saying you should follow in my footsteps and walk around your neighborhood while doped up on Percocet? Of course not! I recognize and accept that I’m a crazy person. But I am saying you should be deeply committed to your goals and to your success and not just interested in it.

Though walking every day is a fitness goal, doing so for the past two months has taught me a lot about what it will take to accomplish my writing goals, too.
