I like to keep my fiction writing as close to real life as possible. I like to think that when people read they are like 'this could totally happen' or come to think that the characters are people they could know. Question is, do I always get it right? This writing preference doesn't mean that … Continue reading Art mirroring Life.
July is done, as you know and now we are in August, again as you know. I was hardly here (🙈 me hiding behind a pillar as I confess that) and I figured I would take stock. An idea I first saw from Justynlove. So here goes; I was... Attending. Virtual meetings. My best kind … Continue reading Out with the old, in with the new!
It's been a whole two weeks since the Afrobloggers Challenge ended. And I know this update is coming in much later but the Challenge was won by Elise over at Letters from this heart. Throughout the challenge she approached the topics in form of a short story series following Esaaba and her outlook on life. … Continue reading Falling back into a writing pattern!
Like most things in life, there was a time frame to this Time crept by slowly, eating up the process and spitting nothing back. They didn't see it move at fast, A subtle little move that gave them the illusion of time aplenty.

This is what Death must feel like. Not that she knew what death felt like. She had obviously not been dead before but she figured it felt like this. Strange. Yet even that word felt incomplete. "Hurry up!" "Coming." Deuce called back, unhappy that she was being called away just as the story was getting … Continue reading Conversations with Death
It's Friday👯♂️. Not that it makes much of a difference in lockdown when the days start to blur together. But the fact that it's Friday got me thinking about dress downs at work. I once interned at an office and you could tell it was Friday just by the dressing. I enjoyed those because it … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: When the past and future collide.
And my intro would be along the lines of 'My name is The Afterthought and I am a connoisseur of boots' - The Flash, anybody? They say the first thing people notice about your appearance are your shoes. I don't know how true that is for me but I guess I have a hawk's eye … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: Call me Ms. Boots
On the whole I like makeovers. Mostly house related but once in a while I can be moved to watch fashion makeovers. Like the show 'How do I look?' Totally enjoyed that. I was always so vocal about what fashion trends worked for people (and yes I know what fashion trends would work for me … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: A change of mindset.
Of late, I have been drawn to the headwraps. I just love them. I think they make a great statement, wrap up a look and go with everything. Which is always a catch for fashion.
