With everything going on in the world, it has been EXTREMELY difficult for me to focus on any particular project.
However, today I woke up with a story on my mind, and I made it my mission to see it into existence. So here we are, with another super short that has all the summer vibes I pray we can safely get a taste of this year <3.
(note: this was something super quick, and fun, and free for me to do that is only lightly edited, so please don’t hold grammatical errors against me lol.)
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.
