#30DaysOfNovember As We Saw It

You never know sometimes what you can or cannot do until you try it. That’s the story of the #30DaysOfNovember series. So I don’t ramble and make this too long, I’ll go straight to the lessons I learnt from this series.

  1. Listen to people, you cannot always do it on your own.

I love to write and I was so excited about writing 30 episodes all by myself. Looking back now, I know I would have enjoyed it but it could not have been this successful. It was while discussing with PhemieMichael, my MVP graphic artist (and the dude who wrote about girls) that he gave me the awesome idea of involving other people. I don’t know how many times I’ve thanked him for that awesome idea and it’s not enough yet. Listen to people, sometimes you are not as smart as you think. Continue reading

FICTION AS I SEE IT #30DaysOfNovember

By Seun Salami

 

The way I see it, fiction writing is one of the most powerful tools available to man. Yet we are barely scratching the surface. I’ll explain.

Fiction engages our emotions and therefore makes us easy to shape.

What this means is that compelling fiction has the same effect on the human mind that a true event does. A well written fictional account of a woman losing her baby will most likely generate the same reaction – compassion, and even tears – as a true account of such an ordeal would. Continue reading

By Inyene Akpan

I was on a train going back home from a weekend away with friends. It was a long ride and I was tired already but something kept me going. Or should I say someone kept me going. He was the only reason I knew I could last the remaining two hours of the ride. He was as cute as they came. Like me, he was sitting alone. I should probably have gone to talk to him. Who am I kidding? I sighed and returned to my book.

“Mind a cup of tea?”

I looked up and saw him standing beside me. What should I say? I couldn’t form the words.

MONEY AS I SEE IT #30DaysOfNovember

By Damilola Iranloye

Sometimes money seems like that girl with so much class and poise. You do so much just to get her to notice you, you scheme, plot, psyche, cajole and eventually “the heavens” smile on you and she says yes, you blink your eye for just one moment and the next thing is that she sends you her wedding invitation to another guy (what the heck, you were with me some seconds ago)

The truth of the matter is, money is that girl that just cant help herself she’s got some attributes that she just can’t say no to even if she tried.

COLOURS AS I SEE IT #30DaysOfNovember

By Queen Oset

“Life is indeed colouful. We can feel in the pink one day, with our bank balances comfortably in the black, and the grass seemingly no greener on the other side of the fence. Then out of the blue, something tiresome happens that makes us see red, turn ashen white, even purple with rage. Maybe controlling our varying emotions is just ‘colour management’ by another name” Continue reading
