From the darkness of these trying times,
One day (hopefully, soon) we will emerge.
We soldier on,

‘Move your writing to the next level ‘ may sound like a cliché – but that’s the reason behind these classes. Else, what’s the point?
That’s the only reason you’re attending too – the knowledge that you will get something different and worthwhile out of it. That’s the only reason you should attend.
Hence, STORY WARS I.
The precursory writing mashups came as a result of a need to see writers/creatives be more than their ‘situation’. More...
So your heart got broken, and you think the end to all life as you know it has come? Think again my friend.
For most people, a broken heart is something they have experienced (or will experience) at least once in their life time (some people are more unfortunate than others in this regard). As the script usually plays out, there’s that one person of the opposite sex you meet, who makes your heart jump and your blood hum, that person who makes you complete (at least as at that time in your More...
I woke up today with a question on my mind. Maybe I should confess now, that ‘woke up’ part may just be stretching it a bit, considering the fact that only the harshly insistent ringing alarm got my unwilling and complaining behind out of bed. The question itself however survived shower hour and stayed with me throughout the somewhat frenetic dash to the office.
Would I be willing to leave Nigeria and relocate abroad?
After thinking about it long and hard (that’s not what it sounds like), More...
Tick tock says the clock, tick tock. Whatever you have to do, do quick!
I’m not sure I got the lyrics of that nursery rhyme correctly but I hope it still conveys the intended meaning.
Many of us wear wristwatches or have table/wall clocks in our homes, offices, places of worship and wherever else we choose to place them, wrist watches and clocks of different shapes and sizes, colors and costs too, with the second hand just merrily ticking away - unnoticed for the most part - as we perfunctorily More...
Anybody remember this video? It was a favorite while I was growing up at the time; with most of us in my age grade choosing sides; Brandy vs Monica... that sort of thing. But the most astounding thing for me (then and now) was how they came together in the end to put Mr. Player in his place.
There has to be a reason why that memory particularly stood out for me. Most likely, it is because I had on some level started expecting two women to always be in opposition to one another. (Pray, More...

So we've been here for a while, keeping it on the straight and narrow for the general audience.
Maybe it's time to step it up a notch and introduce the fare of adults, you know, stuff that happens between consenting males and females (sans all forms of clothing....for the most part) behind closed doors.
Stuff meant only for mature minds, and bodies.
Yay or nay?
Kindly drop your votes in the comments section, they all count in this season of change.
As the seconds tick,
So does my heart beat.
Every second of every minute and every hour….
Many thoughts will come,
And a few of those will eventually find their way,
To being shared in this domain.
Thank you for visiting,
Have a happy time reading,
And do keep coming back.
