So… last night’s #Verzuz “battle”/lovefest on Instagram between Jill Scott and Erykah Badu left me feeling a number of ways.
Full and yet also lighter.
Warm and inspired.
Ready to create something.
As a final song and in dedication to Andre Harrell (RIP), Jill Scott played “Cross My Mind”. And the way I do after all of these battles, I found myself listening to different songs that were played throughout, that song, in particular, staying on repeat because whew… what a song.
I mean… what. a. SONG.
If you’ve never heard it, here’s a link to it on Youtube. And if you haven’t heard it in a while, I encourage you to go back and listen so you can understand exactly where this short came from.
The short. lol
In the high of all of Jill Scott and Erykah Badu’s energies, I felt inclined to create, even going as far as tweeting about it lol
And so now here we are, with a women’s fiction short that has a happy-for-her ending and is affectionately named after the song that inspired it.
(note: this was something super quick and fun and free for me to do that is only lightly edited. also, these characters were intentionally not given real names because I don’t waste good ones LOL)
But here’s a little treat that I hope takes your mind off of things for even a few minutes, my first sample sunday in a LONG while from the project I’m currently working on that is lovingly titled… OOPS!
(note: sample is unedited and subject to change because stuff happens lol)
