Welcome! My name is Vonae Deyshawn and I'm so happy you've stopped by the site.
As a teen, I always envisioned myself working for some large magazine in New York
City, trumping around the office in high heels and spending my days in editorial
meetings devouring all things fashion. As life changed and I matured, I found myself
heading down a different road, one not so exciting. It wasn't until a Saturday last
Spring that it came to me. I could still write about the things I loved; only I wouldn't
do it on the grand scale I'd always imagined. I would start with a dream, my love for
writing, and one of my many journals to create something new, personal, and maybe
As a young girl, I always loved writing my thoughts so I could go back and reflect on
them. Of course back then my journals looked a lot different than they do today.
(Winnie the Pooh vs. Embellished creations) Nothing was more fulfilling for me than
to write a few diary entries and then share them with my best friends. Weird? I know.
It was just something about seeing them laugh, gasp, or tear up after reading my
inner-most thoughts that brought me great satisfaction.
I spent my time in college, writing many short stories and full length novels before
graduating with a degree in Creative Writing. I dreamed of becoming a great
Young Adult novelist and living a life indulging in the art of rhetoric, but instead
found myself constricted by the art of teaching. While I truly love and still adore
my students, I began to see my dreams of writing slowly slipping away. Really my
dream of anything beyond those four classroom walls seemed to be a fleeting
possibility. After two years, I decided it was my time to move on, recapture my dream,
and make my husband, family, friends, and most importantly my students proud of me.
So will you join me on this journey? I'm excited to see where it will take us.
