YoTrip Presents: A Poet People Should Know Courtney PHOENIX White


 

A Poet People Should Know

Courtney PHOENIX White Courtney PHOENIX White

In honor of the 17th Annual National Poetry Month, I am graciously yielding my blog space to Poets. For the balance of April I will run and post my new monthly feature highlighting some amazing poets, YoTrip Presents: “A Poet People Should Know “

Five Questions For A Poet People Should Know

Who are you as a Poet? Please share something about yourself and your business.

I AM… intuitively creatively,

Uniquely divinely,

Physically ferocious

I AM…..THICKKKKK

Courageously tangibly,

Binding legally,

Loving me,

Never facetiously,

Yours truly and  literally…. THE… SHIT

I AM…. never the one you love always the one you left

But dear heart I am nobodys second best

I AM….genuinely essentially,

Caressmatically, infatically, certifiably

The infliction of desire and the FIRST… AID… KIT….

I AM…everything possibly and maybe plausibly

Sickingly, amazingly, strikingly, tastefully yummy

Emotionally and Educationally prepared no dummy

I AM…what you need motivationally, never inappropriately, obviously

Curvatiously, sexually, metaphorically, historically, classically, being me generally, non-egotistically

I AM…SO…..PO…ET….TICCCC

I AM…phenomenally, womanly, satisfyingly, intimately,

The one and only, don’t talk to me like I’m five or six lets just go FIVE..OR….SIXXX….

I AM…animalistically, seductively, passionately, erotically, voluptiously, sensually, romantically, work hard ethically, basically

Sincerely,…..MS….. PHOE…NIX……

I am the owner/CEO of Yume Ai Entertainment.  Yume Ai (Dream Love in Japanese) is an all female all African American company offers basic entertainment services to the public such as photography, modeling, makeup, choreography, song writing, and styling.  I am also an information manager for a company we have recently aligned with called Mxology 21 where we construct streamline event planning for social and corporate affairs.  Writing has always been a passion of mine and I have always written and posted for feedback since 2005.  I have been writing ever since I can remember.  My diary was my first friend.  I am definitely a busy woman but the train isn’t stopping any time soon.

What makes you a “Poet People Should Know”?

I am a  the poet/author of over 125 mixed themed published poems. I have been posting since 2005. The Phoenix bird represents rebirth and the ability to rise from ash with new hope. Because of circumstances surrounding my personal life in 2005, the poet “Phoenix” was born. I am known for primarily for Erotica and have even been referred to as the new age “Zane” however my genres have expanded over the years. I strive to be the voice of women who are afraid of expressing themselves not only sexually but assertively. My greatest desire  would be to “give confidence back to women”. I am currently working on her first novel entitled, ‘Anybody’s Somebody’ in which I depict  women who long for love but instead avoids self-worth and life’s trials and tribulations; replacing it with their insatiable appetite for sex. That replacement only increased disappointment and struggle.  My debut title will be released by FreedomInk Publishing, Fall 2013 via Oppidian.

When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world?

I always put others before myself.   It has always been a gift and a curse.   It has gotten me to the lowest point in my life as well as the journey I am sharing with you now.  I started off writing about my own personal issues and wants and needs sexually and emotionally.  I started to encompass a “No Filter” persona and my audience immediately attached themselves to it.  I am at the point where there is not a day that goes by that I am not called an inspiration.  Women relate to me.  Men are attracted to my raunchy slang.

Where can people find out more about you and your poetic work?

Feel free to contact her with any questions or inquiries at Yumeaientertainment@gmail.com. You may also contact Courtney Phoenix White at courtney@freedomink365.com or cw.writeforyou@gmail.com.  www.facebook.com/courtney.p.3 www.twitter.com/msphoenixfire and www.imaginemephoenix.webs.com

How do you make it all happen?

A lot of prayer and asking for guidance led me on this journey.  I work 13 hours a day and write on the weekends and whenever I can.  I’m living the dream of a shy little girl who’s only goal in life was to be somebody beautiful and successful.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 11/15/12 Write On, Alreday…National Novel Writing Month (Vol.11, Iss.3)


240/365 National Novel Writing Month begins

Write On, Already… National Novel Writing Month

Since 1999 a challenge has been set for those who care to participate and attempt to write a novel during the month of November. It is called the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) event. It is a great  time to put your skills to the test and see if you can produce a novel. 

If you have an interest and want to participate you still have 15 days to get that novel written. If it sounds like a tall order for you there are online as well as local support in many cities and states to help keep you encouraged. 

I salute and honor any one who has joined the challenge and stayed the course, even if they did not write 50,000 words. 

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.

As you spend November writing, you can draw comfort from the fact that, all around the world, other National Novel Writing Month participants are going through the same joys and sorrows of producing the Great Frantic Novel. Wrimos meet throughout the month to offer encouragement, commiseration, and—when the thing is done—the kind of raucous celebrations that tend to frighten animals and small children.

Annual participant/winner totals 1999: 21 participants and six winners

2000: 140 participants and 29 winners

2001: 5000 participants and more than 700 winners

2002: 13,500 participants and around 2,100 winners

2003: 25,500 participants and about 3,500 winners

2004: 42,000 participants and just shy of 6,000 winners

2005: 59,000 participants and 9,769 winners

2006: 79,813 participants and 12,948 winners

2007: 101,510 participants and 15,333 winners

2008: 119,301participants and 21,683 winners

2009: 167,150 participants and 32,178 winners

2010: 200,500 participants and 37,500 winners

2011: 256,618 participants and 36,843 winners

Keep writing and reaching for your goal of 50, 000 words! You can do this!

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for May 17, 2011-Words and Thoughts of Thanks (Vol.2, Iss.3)


Writing journal

 

I am truly humbled and equally honored to have been named by The Orlando Renaissance Writer’s Guild, Inc. as the 2011 “Writer of the Year”. To be recognized for writing and sharing words, thoughts and inspiration with people let’s me know I am making a difference.

Writing is like the air I breathe, I thank God for the gift. Since my childhood, I have had a pen in my hand writing on paper, walls, and any place I could scribble or scribe. Over the years, I have been blessed to write for fun,  for show, and write for work.  I want to thank God for the gift of writing it is a blessing that I do not take lightly or for granted. I thank  my family for their encouragement and also for being a point of reference.

The faithful readers of my blogs are to be thanked for taking time to read my Words and Thoughts, you are the meter of measure that keeps me working for the masses. Special thanks to the members of The Orlando Renaissance Writer’s Guild,Inc.  for being a great resource, a great refuge, and a great frame of reference. Gathering as a group with the members of the Orlando Renaissance Writer’s Guild,Inc. and being a support drives me to reach for higher heights in my writing.

Let me offer to each of you to write your story, your family’s story or any story that impacts you to inspire others. Thank you all for being who you are and helping me celebrate writing, literacy, and those who have a love for the written word. Write on, write on, write on! ~~YoTrip
