Why Did I Start Writing?

  Hey, Everyone!   I recently thought about the pressures we sometimes put on ourselves as writers to meet up with imagined expectations.   Aside from heralding the countdown to the Christmas holidays, November is known in writing circles as National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) or National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo). Aside from the cumbersome... Continue Reading →

Allergies Everywhere!

I'm allergic to dust, please sweep gently and with caution. I'm allergic to stuffy environments, please open a window. I'm allergic to to windy environments, please close the window. I'm allergic to to cheap perfumes, please go and stand by that corner. I'm allergic to cheap food; 5 star dining only, please. I'm allergic to... Continue Reading →

No Sister Here.

I've wondered about having a sister, Someone to always have near. I'm sure that she would have been wonderful, I probably would have really loved her. Maybe a lovely big sister, Who would always look out for me. Someone who I could borrow clothes from, Like a shopping mall, but free. Maybe a pretty little... Continue Reading →

They Must Be In A Secret Cult.

I have given this a lot of thought. It would be a good justification for their actions. The world would have meaning again. Majority of service providers in Nigeria must be in a secret cult. To prove their worthiness and loyalty, they must apparently do the following: 1. They must provide extremely poor services to... Continue Reading →

Apps for your cramps.

  I've been told that if any woman truly remembered the pain she went through while giving birth to her first child, she would wait calmly for her husband to 'approach' her again, and then point a gun at him. 'Baby 1 will be our only child' or 'We are adopting the next one; please... Continue Reading →

Thank you NEPA, we can always count on you, for darkness and stress in equal measure.   The long queues at Petrol Stations, there's yet another round of fuel scarcity. Who do we blame, the petroleum marketers, or our good old NNPC?   The poor... Continue Reading →

LOVE (THE LOWS)

When love goes wrong... It consumes you. It overwhelms you. It shrinks you. It devours you. When love goes wrong, oh my, what a sight. There is cruelty and misery where there was once delight. When love goes wrong, it's like a guest who refuses to leave, Who mocks you and belittles you, and won't... Continue Reading →

LOVE (THE HIGHS)

The weightless feeling you get in your chest, like you're floating high in the sky, The thought that you can do anything and everything, and maybe even fly. The sheepish smile that occupies your face, like a cat that got the cream, The spring in your step, the joy in your heart, whenever you think... Continue Reading →

Efficiency And Witchcraft.

I recently needed information about the process for protecting literary work in Nigeria. I looked up the information on the Nigerian Copyright Commission's website. The information was clear. The process itself was straightforward. I didn't know what to do with myself. When your default setting is to 'expect rubbish', efficiency catches you unawares. It's refreshing....
