Goodbye DALANEL; Hello Dante Writes

Goodbye DALANEL; Hello Dante Writes. #DALANEL

WP_20140525_007If you’ve paid attention, I tend to end my posts with a signature of “-DALANEL”. It’s an acronym of my name so it’s a perfect signature.

However, that’s going to change. I’m going to be Dante Writes. I guess it’s a pen name. The first time I used it was on Twitter, and it’s expanded to most of my social media accounts. I have a dedicated email account for my writing life. I actually changed the…

The Network Roundup: Vagina Kayak, New Game Show, The Awe Factor, and more!

The Network Roundup: Vagina Kayak, New Game Show, The Awe Factor, and more!

My network had a decent week.

For my Monday Motivation, I talked about having a winner’s mentality vs a loser’s mentality. There was a cool image in there.

Movie Monday was about sarcasm. I’m a big fan of sarcasm as I produce a lot of it.

New to DALANEL is Tuesday Testimony, where I share testimonies posted on the internet and such. The first one was a poem of God’s saving grace.

Dante’s Opinion: Should I forgive and try to reconnect?

Dante’s Opinion: Should I forgive and try to reconnect?

I want to reconnect with my cousin, but I’m not sure if it’s the right thing to do.

We grew up together like sisters (our mums were sisters, and dads were brothers). I looked up to her a lot. We grew apart around 18, but got close again when I fell pregnant with my first child at 23 years old. She accepted to be my daughters godmother. We would talk about how when she had a baby our kids could…

I am Dante Writes

I am Dante Writes. With a birthday comes an embrace of an identity. #DanteWrites

Happy birthday to me. Today, I celebrate a 23rd birthday.

As you may have noticed from my blogs, it’s a big celebration.

As I transition from one year to the next, I have decided to start embracing the Dante Writes name.

The first time I used it was on Twitter and an email address. Since then, I’ve used it as a representation of me in the blogging world. If not Dante Writes, then it’s DALANEL.

I…

Wednesday Word: The Awe Factor

Wednesday Word: The Awe Factor #DALANEL

Wednesday Word 2.001

Today’s Wednesday Word is one of those few times where I’m like, “That’s what I’ve been saying!”. This video really sends a message: Let’s go back to basics.

By the 2 minute mark, I knew what was going on.

That’s our problem. We have all of these denominations. I’ve always said that Jesus doesn’t care about that. All He cares is…

weird wednesday

Welcome to Weird Wednesday where we take weird and funny news and talk about em.

vagina kayakFirst up, an artist models a kayak with her vagina as inspiration. Yeah.

Igarashi, who worked under the alias Rokudenashiko, which means “good-for-nothing girl” in Japanese, built a yellow kayak with a top shaped like her vagina after raising about $10,000 through crowdfunding.

Considering that it spends time on…

Vine: New blog and new books

Vine: New blog and new books. I’ve been working on some stuff.

I used Vine to share an update on my writing projects. I’ve started a new blog and I’ve finished a couple of unpublished books. I won’t share any of this stuff yet, but in the near future I will; probably August.

You should follow me on Vine in the meantime or at least Twitter.

Thanks.

Tuesday Testimony: A poem of God’s saving grace

Tuesday Testimony: A poem of God’s saving grace #DALANEL #Testimony

testimony

My story sounds crazy, but it’s not a lie,
Not a song or a dance, or an alibi,
In that dark valley I cried and cried,
But praise be to God – He lifted me high!

Surrounded by men with malicious thoughts,
Needing to escape without being caught,
I opened the door, jumped out of the car.
Rolled into a ditch, but didn’t get very far.

Three men ran towards me, shoes striking the ground,
Pop! pop! pop!…
