One of your friends had just stumbled on your ‘journal’ – your book of writings.
Unlike others, you don’t just write in it daily events. Poems, fiction and even eulogies abound in your journal.
She had come visiting because you guys hadn’t seen in a long while. Since you both graduated and gone on the National Youth Service exercise, it had only been phone calls.
Unfortunately, while you were you were cooking your lineage-famous Jollof rice, she had ventured into your ‘no-access territory’ where you kept your writings. Shet.
‘Kemi, Kemo. So you be writer?’ she had asked. In that split second, your brain became muddled. As usual. You had asked yourself this question a billion times too.
‘Me ke? I’m not a writer o!’
P.S There is a Whatsapp group I’ll be making public soon – ‘Boost Your Writing Confidence’ Masterclass. If this description of the writer in this story fits you, you should join. If you want to shine your God-given ‘writing light’ and hone it till others can’t ignore and are impacted, YOU SHOULD JOIN.’
Enough said. Who’s with me?
Type ‘Yes’ in the comment box so I know you and alert you when the group is opened up.
10 TELL-TALE SIGNS THAT YOU HAVE WRITING POTENTIAL
1. You’re a voracious
Discussions on Robots, Trump and Artificial intelligence, that’s what.
All, I had envisaged was a hurriedly planned meeting with two tech guys on a software challenge, but what I learnt was mind-breaking.
My mind broke.
Happy New Month,
This is another month to expand, develop and create new things.
Another month to preach the gospel.
Another month to achieve those written-down New Year goals.
Hope you haven’t forgotten them already? 😄
Or maybe like me, you got a bit discouraged about the ‘hefty’ goals you wrote down and you want to abandon them altogether.
Instead, stretch yourself and grow out of your comfort zone. It might be painful, and might even give you ‘stretch marks’ but it will be worth it in December.
However, there’s one thing you’ll need along the way – Words of Affirmation. There will be times you just don’t feel like it OR when situations just happen (no money, parents not believing in you, etc). What do you tell yourself in those moments? Negative things? Or POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS?
In the spirit of the New Month, I want to help you craft your personal affirmation statements.
From Demilhadey.com to you.
A free new month gift! Open and See. 😁 http://www.mylanderpages.com/DemiladeOlafisoye/New-Affirmation-landing-page
Various feet pound the pavement
And race towards the open door
The bus is full. The conductor satiated.
The fairytale is shortlived.
Fuel finished. Tyre tires. Passengers deflated.
Tribalism is brought to the fore
Nobody can win.
‘I go punch that conductor o, make we just come down for our bus stop.’
Muttered breaths. Alcoholic threats.
Uttered from the backseat of the bus.
The conductor had no respect, they ranted in liquor speech,
Throughout the whole journey.
Wrong bus. Wrong bus. I cried inwardly
First passenger in a bus.
I take my ‘one yansh‘ Read More
Not because I’m weak
My pipe is.
Full to the brim with frustration
‘I said you should find a better image’
I told the creative director.
