Fantasy Post (Mngwa Part 1)

I started talking about writing some short stories to help me widen my mind for my fantasy novel. Well, this is my first one, and I hope it's enjoyed.

Deep in the African forests their lyes a creature called a Mngwa. A cat as large as a horse and more powerful than a lion. The surrounding tribes feared this creature the ones who were brave enough to enter the forest to kill the beast never returned.  In a small tribe that lays on the edge of the forest call Aanick, Aanick is a tribe that is slowly dying, food is running low and people getting sick. In Aanick, a father has had to make a tough decision his family was starving, and he had to choose between his son and daughter. This man planned to send his daughter to go pick berries in the forest without knowledge of the Mngwa. The man went to bed after tucking his son in and kissing his daughter goodnight for the last time. That morning he asked his daughter to go pick the berries usually warning her not to go too far but never saying why this time he just said go.

 As little girl wandered into the forest deeper and deeper, she got, she started seeing spears and knives on the ground. Walking further, the Mngwa appeared almost coming out of thin air frozen in fear the little girl dropped her basket. Staring at the beast, she just started crying, waiting for her death, realizing what her father had done to her. The Mngwa didn't attack and didn't kill her as the little girl cried without her seeing the Mngwa laid down beside her. The little girl stopped crying and finally noticed the Mngwa not only laying beside her but purring as well like it was trying to comfort her. She sat down beside the beast,, starting to realize that it wasn't as bad as she saw. Slowly leaning into it as the sunset on them falling asleep with a feeling of comfort with the Mngwa feeling it wasn't as dangerous as it seemed. She woke up, and the Mngwa wasn't there it was gone was it a dream she thought looking around, and while coming across a berry bush that had been pulled from the ground, it wasn't there when she fell asleep where did it come from and where did the Mngwa go?  

I hope you liked this little short story I'd have more but that's just what I came up with on the spot I've been researching mythical creatures lately and the Mngwa just sounded so interesting to me plus I have a love for cats. Origins stem from Africa and besides a description, I don't know a lot about them......yet. Since the world I'm creating doesn't exist I might have creatures from different origins more I think of it the more I like the idea kind of helps it form the idea around the book for what my vision is. I'm kind of stuck on where to go with the Mngwa and the way it treats the little girl now. So I might post another fantasy post sooner.

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

A New Decade or Chapter

It's that time a year again but, I have to do something new this year I'm considered self-employed thanks to my book . I never thought I would be able to say I'm self-employed even though I haven't broken even yet. I'm so grateful for 2019 and am ready to embrace 2020! It let in a new chapter of my life and I'm even working on my second book that will be done here soon. I'm not sure to this day if I took my first book in the right direction. The thing is you live and you learn though I hope to make a difference with my books  or book as of this moment I only have one. I do hope on releasing my second book this year titled Myself. I'm doing something that I never thought I would do but I'm revealing my true self I talked some about what I've been through in You.  I'm taking off my brave face and am going to reveal my feelings it's hard but I'm doing it. The thing is how am I going to help someone if I'm still hiding You . It

Listen to Your Body

I always talk about how important health is mind and body, but it doesn't prepare you for unexpected health issues. Unfortunately, that's what's going on with me. I don't know exactly what's going on I do know I've gotten into the doctor as soon as possible. That's something someone should do if somethings not right monitor it and if it doesn't stop after a few days go to the doctor. I'm no medical professional this is just my opinion. I ended up finding out what was going on. I'm still going through all the treatment it was nothing deadly nothing dangerous. I'm glad everything has been figured out. Remember if something is abnormal with your body check it out your health is important. This is partially the reason I've been gone in the month of November. I found out that I abnormal bleeding in my womanhood. I accidentally overlap with two different types of birth control the depo shot and the arm implant. So that life lesson has been
