First Writer’s Wednesday of the year. (And hopefully it will persist with some bi-weekly consistency.) I had the pleasure of listening to some of Elizabeth Gilbert's interviews on writing, and I also read her book 'Big Magic'. I liked her wit, especially in the interviews and perspective on what writing was to her. One thing … Continue reading The best writing advice…
Have you read the book with the same title by Eric Smith as yet? Well, I enjoy reading comments. Like on YouTube channels - personally I think that reading the comments while watching the video heightens the experience. And of late, I have also been drawn to reviews on Goodreads. Sure some people may say … Continue reading Don’t read the comments!
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 imitating Life.
She had never considered herself the kind who would fight over a boy. Why would she? There were plenty of boys out there. The trick was in picking the right one. Then getting them to stay. But the lament here is that she had never thought she would be one of those girls. Yet here … Continue reading the unspoken art of moving on
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. Something that's comfortable and can go with everything 👌🏿. I also like the fact that they make a messy bad … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: Headline with the headwrap

So this is obviously Culture and Fashion Week and at first I thought I was boxed in by one perspective but the more I sat with it, the more … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: the trendsetter and the sheep
To do so many things, including promoting and growing your business. So - welcome to your marketplace. If you are producing something, unless it's totally private and for your personal enjoyment, you hope there will be consumers on the other end of it. I hope that description just lights the idea of social media in … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : It takes a village…
Bet you can already imagine how I'll milk a writing series from this - part 1-10; then follow up with 'Movies and the Writer' and 'Series and the Writer', 'Games and the Writer' till I successfully finish all possible visual and auditory entertainment channels. It would make for good content too. But for today, it's … Continue reading Music and the Writer
One of my favourite scenes in The 100 Season 1, because I'm yet to go beyond Season 2, is when the ship lands on Earth and Octavia is offered the first step on earth. She steps out and doesn't go out in flames and she screams, 'We are back, b*****es' and then Radioactive by Imagine … Continue reading 5 things I learnt…or remembered from being offline.
This is my first authentic book review, I think. Most of the time I just get a central theme that stood out for me and go along with that. Highlighting the book and talking about everything else. 'Love is a Revolution' by Renée Watson was my favourite read in the month of Feb. I thought … Continue reading Love is a revolution – Book review
