Being Real

Being Real

It's been over a week since I have written anything. It's literally a case of "I've got nothing". I think it should be a real medical condition. Anyway, my brain has been blank and I am in a state of being uninspired. Some call it writer's block. I prefer to think of...

Spidey Sense

One never knows how strong they really are until confronted with something that tests their resolve. We have all been there. Put in situations that don't provide a clear solution. Yesterday, I came in touch with a predicament. One that put me in a vulnerable position....

Own Your Truth

We are a society forever doomed to cater to what is deemed acceptable. What will people think if they knew the truth? Acting as if we okay when we are not. Pretending that we have our shit together when we don't. In light of Simone Biles owning her truth by honoring...

Standing Out

Standing Out

All I want to do is write. I want to focus on cleaning up my second novel and share funny anecdotes about my life in my blog, but instead I have to continue the uphill battle of trying to be relevant. Hello, I am Allison Jones and I am trying to build a brand at...
