For a work assignment - if you dare believe it - one of my colleagues had to write a love letter. Wild stuff. Interesting stuff. And as we all reviewed it, we got to talking about love letters and letters in general. (I personally hope me and my person - if they are there - … Continue reading On letter writing
You have probably heard it all before. How you are enough and you shouldn't be looking at other people's paths. And your head might get that but translating that into daily living is where you seem to fall short. After all, no one lives in your head but you. They have no idea what you … Continue reading To the person who feels ‘not enough’.
What other catchphrases do you know work well for the number '2'!! Because the blog has made two years🥳🥳🥳🥳. The years go by so fast, don't they!! This happened over the weekend and somehow I forgot to write about it. A part of me thought I should let it go. Then I remembered that I'm … Continue reading Blogiversary: Double the drama!!
Bringing this back from a series I did in the Winter ABC challenge - in case you missed it. One of the things I totally appreciate about the digital revolution is how many writing platforms there are. It's great exposure and most of them are mostly free.

Sure some people may say … Continue reading Don’t read the comments!

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.
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!
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
How much do you think Disney or Electronic Arts pay their writers😏? Like seriously. Even though I feel like these are two companies I could work for for free (don't quote me on that - money is important!) Writing for those companies would be a dream. I am easily a lover of animations and video … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : Landing the dream job
