Organize– arrange into a structured whole; order. “organize lessons in a planned way”
I am Currently organizing my life, because I crave and need order. With the many things and people that I am responsible for I can only thrive, survive, grow, and attain success through strategic planning. So I realized with my growing responsibilities I can NOT afford a disorganized (disorderly) spirit, mind, or space.
I’m guilty of creating clutter very quickly. My cluttered physical space has been a direct reflection of my indecisiveness and cluttered mind that easily becomes overwhelmed with anxieties, juggling in pure vain to keep all my balls in the air.
I’m TIED of being anxious, overwhelmed, unsure, and unprepared. I WANT to be the best example for my son and family. And I WANT to feel confident, peaceful, and energized in my space.
Being orderly has become priority. So I’ll be over here organizing.
The Volume Series By Mark Anthony Howard “The Gritz”
“NL2F” The Volume Series is my latest book in progress. Its a dedication to the professional and affluent woman in a collection of poetic prose and love letters. Its pace and its verbiage is very sophisticated, very sensual and very seductive.
All together,its super sexy and super flirty, with alot of enriching perspectives and values on mature interpersonal and sexual relationships.
I kind of want to keep the certain mystique it has do I won’t say too much, I’ll probably just leave a couple samples and snippets up between now and the books launch scheduled for late February/ early March.
It should b available at online book retailers Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com for a very worthy 39.95.
So start saving for only book that’ll satisfy a professional woman’s holistic craving.
Hope you’re intrigued! Stay tuned “NL2F”coming soon.

This current incarceration is a tough situation for me and my lil family.
I have alot of plans and alot of frustrations. Im furious at how this system has stolen my productivity and the integrity of what I represent. But that same indignation is the cause of my confidence.
Im more confident in myself and in my ingenuity that I can win from here just as surely as Ive won from any other hardship and adversity.
Im too resourceful, im too resilient, im too intelligent, im too persuasive, im too productive,and im too relentless to ever lose; ever!
Winning is inevitable for me, because I simply wont quit and that’s the whole reason im The Gritz; because thats who ive proven to be consistently in spite of any and all adversity.
Im The Gritz, im currently in CDCR, and I can “Win From Here!”
C is for Contradiction. A contradiction is a combination of statements, ideas, or features of a situation that are opposed to one another. In classical logic, a contradiction consist of a logical incompatibility between one or more propositions.
I’ve had a lot of positive feedback on my book and Its message. It is extremely exciting to see people support and exercise genuine pride and concern in myself and the books contents. But not everyone is so pleased with me or the book. Some say that I may be a contradiction to the principles presented in my book.
This was hurtful to hear at first but at second and third and fourth, I’m not so surprised and I’d like to offer more of my perspective.
Truly I am a contradiction. My income and my domestic situation have never represent well of my capacity and aptitude. Because of my chronic struggle with situation and serial business failures I am the object of many on-looking opinions and prejudices.
I am supposed, presumed, and assumed to be so many negative things as a struggling young Black man that to have a principled perspective and the aptitude to express it creatively is a absolutely a contradiction to each of those proposed assumptions.
Then as an author with the ability to express himself creatively and literally I’m again classified in to a young Black male that is better than a young Black male without this blessing.
I do believe that I am a contradiction to many of the stereo-types, prejudices, and expectations of others judgment.
But I don’t believe that I am a contradiction to many of the principles presented in this great book.
I represent it well, I apply it, and embody its principles as an example.
I encourage others to do as well despite any negative perception of you.
Im not sure of what the significance of my life is meant to be. But in my strive towards it I encounter alot of satan.
The more I fight for God and whats good in my heart, the more bad I attract Satan’s resistance and whats bad for me.
As a child I remember reading the “My book of Bible Stories” published by Jehovah’s Witnesses. In an illustration of Adam’s expulsion from the Garsen of Eden, there was an “angelic” man with wings and a sword hovering at the entrance of the Paradise-Garden.
This image comes to mind in reflection of my life and the many trials and adversities I’ve experienced and encountered. Read the rest of this entry
My child I haven’t abandoned you. I haven’t let you go.
I imagine your smile. I imagine your talent. I wanna be your manager. Joe and Janet shit. Lol. I promise to prepare for your life. I promise to prepare for your needs. I ask that you may live in my heart until I provide a space for you. Please forgive me for delaying your blessing. I promise im here for you and I promise I want to be your daddy. Please comfort me with your thought and take comfort in my thoughts of you. I anticipate your joy and your adversity and take pleasure in guiding you toward Gods understanding.

“Your Love is Not Mine…”| Mark Anthony Howard “The Gritz
Your love is not mine
Your love is an ordinary love
Your love has no imagination
Your love is a mimic and imitation
Your love is not mine
Your love is circumstantial
Your love has impurities
Your love is immature
Your love has insecurities
