Dragon Spotlight with Winnifred

Gosh… Things are going so fast that I can’t keep up with my emails. I’m so grateful but I didn’t expect such a huge response from people on Twitter. I’m usually organised but I reckon its just that holiday spirit that’s crept up on me.

Right.. back to the Dragon Spotlight. We have a multi-talented individual for you today. Please enjoy another one of our own from the #WritingCommunity. APPLAUSE!


Tell readers about yourself

Hi, my name is Winnifred or Winnie. I reside in South Carolina and is an undergraduate at the College of Charleston. I was born in the U.S. and my parents are from Cameroon, Africa. As a military child, I have traveled extensively around the US East Coast and Germany, learning about the history, lore, and culture of each region. I love to spread positivity and joy to those around me and look at the world through a glittery pink lens.

My blog is the place where I share my book and writing journey. As well as big life events, my own artwork, and fun life tips.

Pick one of your creations. Why this one?

The creation I chose to showcase is my first book, The Gods’ Scion: Child of Tempus. I chose this because it is my baby. Currently, I’m working through it to do a re-launch in early spring of 2020. It had some places I feel needed improvement to it. Once it is relaunched, I know I’ll be over the moon. I’ve worked so hard on this book. I have got so much support and love for it through friends and family. I’m just happy to be able to (re) share it with the world.

If you could have a conversation with your younger self, what would you say?

If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?

I would like to be 25. I feel like is the age when you truly an adult. I would also be a quarter of a century so I’ll be half of 50. I’ll still be in my 20s. It’s a fun age and I feel like it’s a turning point for a lot of people in their lives.

Off the top of your head, who would you give a shout out to on Twitter?

I would give out a shout out to all the people I communicate with on Twitter in the #WritingCommunity! I would love to give names but I don’t think you guys want a list of 800 people. They are the people I interact with the most. They make it worthwhile on Twitter. The community is so open, accepting, and loving. It just warms my heart every time I open up that crazy bird app.

Imagine the best version of yourself. Who is that?

I feel the best version of myself is this someone who is honest, healthy, happy and content with my life. I do feel that right now I am living the best version of my life. I can’t see myself being a better person as of now. Of course, there are things I’m always going to need to work on. Overall I’m pretty happy with how I am, how I’m treated, and how I treat others around me.

What’s Rocking Your World This Month?

I would say K-pop. I’ve been in love with K-pop now for about two years but this month I have been fed with so much different music content, videos, Memes, and meeting other mutuals and lovers as well.
