J. Bliss Influenced by, Maya Angelo, Terry McMillan, and her own mother’s prestigious writing, J. Bliss began writing stimulating poetry at the age of thirteen. She dreamt of being an author and never gave up on the passion deep to write that she held within herself.
Her first novel originated from a past radio talk show she was the host of, based on many callers that spoke about having marital problems, most of which stemmed from a lack of intimacy. Drawing from her own experiences and struggles, she felt compelled to write Lovers of Convenience leading to Not by Chance.
Hi, J, and thank you for being here! Your mother was a prestigious writer. How did this fact influenced your own writing? Was it good or bad?
My mother inspired me to write as a child and continues today. She was an English teacher and although she did not tell me to pursue writing, she stressed for me to follow my dream. My passion just happen to be writing, but I did not recognize it as a child. I perceived it as a core subject everyone had to learn to survive their education.
As a child, I recall going to writer’s workshops with my mother and I wanted her to myself. I didn’t care for her instructing other people only spending time with me. It was interesting because when I had a daughter, I notice she responded the same way with myself. I laugh today thinking about it. I was a child then, I wanted my mommy to myself. Moreover, my mother’s writings encouraged me because I was proud of her writing. I only wish she had more of her work published. As a single parent, raising six children publishing was not and still is not the most easy process.
My mother had her work published in school curriculum, she was instrumental in the development of the Black Arts Movement in Dallas, Texas. Her work was published in various newspapers and overall, her accomplishments set a foundation for what I would strive for in my writing, which is giving people a lesson to learn.
I remember one night, I wrote an essay and took it to my mother. She returned the loose sheet paper, it resembled a murder scene. After making revisions, I was confident I improved. She gave me my paper and I frowned thinking ‘this looks like a double homicide took place on my paper.’ I am happy I can laugh about this today but I must say as a child it was my driving force to get better. Today, children get upset and give up, if you return a document as my mother did when I was a child.
I spent the entire night correcting my paper, hand writing it with a pen and paper, determined. When she gave me my final draft at midnight, there were still red ink stains, less but it was still marks.
She looked at me and said, “I will always find something, you have to learn how your teacher examines papers. Keep practicing but tonight go to sleep!” I went to school and turned in the paper. A week later my teacher returned my paper and I had an A without any crime scene stains drenched on it. Interestingly, I looked at the paper and noticed a grammar error. I did not refute my A, but I realized my mother set a tone for me to not only keep writing but strive for excellence, as I write. She influenced me as a child in my writing and even in her death inspires me to write various stories. In fact, we would brainstorm about the Chance series and after her death I wrote the Holiday Romance, Perfect, Imperfect Christmas, in honor of her. It is a short story series, based on a young lady experiencing the holiday without her mother. That story means so much to me because in the story though I share moments that reflect how I have felt since her passing through the characters; I also get to keep her alive in my thoughts, heart, and memory through words. Since the death of my mother, the theme of coping with death is used more. I did not use it in the most recent novel Last Chance but the mother of the male character in the story is a reflection of my mother. In my summer release novel, Breaking Dance which is the prequel of the Chance Series, death is mentioned but I am capturing the emotions we must face in order to move on in life.
Reflecting on the question, how did my mother influence me as a writer; I think the best way to answer the question is ‘she still is influencing me to writer and never stop writing.’
