Last week, we discussed on the meaning of writing.
It was seen from different perspectives.

And I'm sure you got something from that.

Today, we'll be considering something more intriguing.

Titled:
๐‚๐€๐ ๐€๐๐˜๐Ž๐๐„ ๐–๐‘๐ˆ๐“๐„?

That's a question and I'll be giving you the answer. The answer is YES.

Anyone can write.

You don't have to be an English Student before you start writing.

When I was much younger, I used to think that it's only art student that writes, read books and should know literature while the science student just had to marry their calculators and 4-figure table.

This made me pay little or no attention to English Language.

But now I know better, Amen?๐Ÿ˜ƒ

See, you can write. It's just a manner of decision and determination.

Your vocabulary must not be a top-notch before you start writing.

You don't have to read all the books in the world to be a writer.

But, you need to start reading as time goes on.

What is that limiting voice that tells you, WRITING IS NOT FOR YOU?

For you to be reading this, it's possible that you have the passion for writing.

You may need to read that again!

This is because when the going gets tough and tight, there's every tendency of you giving up and quitting.

If you don't know what you're passionate about yet, you can go for a passion discovery coaching or better still, slide into my DM.

๐‹๐ž๐ญ'๐ฌ ๐‚๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐ฎ๐ž...

Maybe because you posted a write-up and no one liked and commented on it.

Or probably, you read other people's work and you feel a big gap between you and that person.
You get demotivated and afraid.

1. Writing is one out of many ways of communicating.
Aside from speaking, miming and gesticulating, writing is another effective and efficient means of communicating.

Why is it so?
This is because writing as a means of communicating gets to a wide range of audience compared to others.

Also,take a look at those that are dumb, they can't talk rather they express their thought through writing.

Most introvert prefer speaking to their books and pouring out their thought on a book, usually called personal diary.
They keep track record of their activities, feelings and experiences in a book.

Now, this is the picture I painted in my mind. I imagined it and converted it to a text. Trying as much as possible to make the readers get exactly that picture I had painted just as it was in my mind.

You'd agree with me that you tried imagining the scenario, right?
That's it!

If your write up is not conveying the exact idea you initially had, then that's a bad write-up. There's a misplacement of purpose.

3.Writing is a skill.
It can be natural or acquired. Just as we learn every other skill, writing can be learnt as well.
You don't have to be a born writer before you can write.
However, you may be a writer from birth but you need to hone your writing skill and polish it through attending writing classes.

So having understood what writing is all about, you're good to go.

Lack of courage will destroy that picture you painted for yourself.

Courage is the ability to face your fears.

Your fears can be your audience.
It can be your friends.
It can be criticism.
And more!

DEAR WRITERS_ POEM.

Messengers to the earth.

Words have betrayed me, To describe your being. If you were to an angel, I could have been silent. But you're only human! What are you made of? You beam radiantly, Like diamonds in the sky. You're just so perfect to be imperfect. In my closet as each day springs forth, I imagine a world without you. The world itself would have disagreed, Barking with grieve in the sky, And pouring down it's tears to the earth. You stitch up a torn life. You mend a broken heart, Patching a leaking fellow with just a pen. With a burning passion in your heart, You pour your mind to us. When you load your bullet in your pen gun, You shoot to the right person, And misseth not a target. What a great skill to acquire. How on Earth can you stop writing? What will happen to the sadist? What would the depressed do? What will be the fate of the weary? Long ago could we have died of boredom, But no! You chose that we may live, Putting your pen to paper, That long disappeared smile appears back. Your inspiration is out of this planet. It's like an alien who landed on Earth. Birthing plots never known to life, Letting the pen bleed notwithstanding. Who is thy mentor? Oh thee! Show me let me have a bite, I plead thee! You understand the ordeal of the reader and construct each word to suit them. For I weep when I have a taste of it. Truth is indeed bitter. It causes me to purge, But it sets me on track. I laugh like a baby being tickled, Basking in euphoria, When I read those gentle lines, That instills calmness in me. When I needed some to keep me going, I nod my head in affirmation. Just as a lizard would nod it's head, After falling down from a tree. Saying with enthusiasm, "Yes! I've got the write piece". How can I describe your affection for us? Waking up early in the morning, Showing up each day, Defying all odds. In sickness and in health, You kept wielding your pen!! In my loneliest days, you're there. When I wade in the ocean of confusion, You're there to give me a warm embrace. When I sat on the verge of life, you're there to catch me. Keep wielding your pen!! My love for you knows no bounds. I love you unapologetically. Keep wielding your pen!! You're my superstar. Gracias! ๐‘ฐ ๐’‚๐’Ž, Testimony Azubuike. ๐‘ฉ๐’๐’†๐’”๐’”๐’†๐’…๐‘ฐ๐’๐’Œโœ๏ธ

How I Escaped The Kidnapper's Den

Storytelling competition w/Tosin Ezekiel.

HOW I ESCAPED FROM THE KINAPNAPPER 'S DEN.

Breeze by that time are often cool,but the weather remained unfriendly even as evening time approached.
I could feel hot sweat dripping off my sleeve as I walked down the hot- rough road.
My slippers must have swore never to be under my foot again.

I was consciously distracted by the pinky-rozy flower that was assembled by the corner of the streets.
Picking flowers as I walk became a hobby ever since I came to live with Uncle Jide.
At the entrance of very apartment is a barrack of blooming flowers, making each apartment look alike.
This made it more difficult for me to locate our street,let alone our apartment.
The apartment number wasn't familiar to me either.

I was exhausted already and I decided to take a quick rest under a huge tree with large branches.
I sat down on a wooden bench that was made available for passer-by.
I was rummaging on how I will get back home especially now, evening was fast approaching.

As unexpected as it was, a black van with tinted windows parked just adjacent to where I was sitted.
It's been past two hours now and not even a single soul had come around. I saw their presence as God's sent and I approached them immediately.

"Eeeem.. excuse me,sir! I'm kind of new here and honestly I can't find my way home." I live with โ€ฆโ€ฆ. I kept talking on and on while the man I was talking to, looked around suspiciously pretending to be listening to me.
"Hello sir, are you listening to me?" I asked ,tapping him at the shoulder. This time, he didn't respond rather he looked just behind me making me more anxious.
On my quest to know what was at my back, I looked back and that was the last thing I could remember.

I woke up in a dark stuffy room.
I was hit hard at the intersection between my head and my neck that should have made me unconscious for a long time but I was awakened by the noise of the people in that room which I wasn't able to see.
I found a corner and glued myself to it, shriving like a chick been beaten in the rain.
I tried reminiscing what transpired earlier on but I couldn't just fantom it. All I could remember was how I was held like a thief and thrown into the den.
The noise kept increasing at interval as though we were increasing in numbers.
I thought it was a dream not until the Big boss (as they called) and walked in to address us.
He flashed a bright torch light on each of our faces as we closed our eyes due to the reflection.
"Hey! You fools. I won't condone any form of noise and grumbling from you all. You're all going down tomorrow with your head rolling on the floor like a football.
Your throat shall gush out blood like a broken pipe that needs to be fixed." He said this and laughed mischievously with his men.
I wasn't crying, no, I was just gazing looks and accepting reality. It was now I knew that I was been kidnapped.
The big boss was looking scarier than anyone else with his whitish looking beards and an outgrowth positioned at a conspicuous part of his nose.
He came closer to a small boy and squat down touching his beards subsequently.
"I'm certain you kill chicken,right?" The boy didn't respond, rather he increased the intensity of his cry.
"Answer me!" The man scolded.
"Well, your blood will gush out in that manner. Hahahahaโ€ฆ.he said as he demonstrated by touching his throat.

"Now, listen up everyone. You are all going down tomorrow but the question is who goes down first?
So, the quiet you are, the better for you. Let's go guys!"
They turn their back and worked out shortly after he instructed one of them to stay on guard.

The cold in the room was freezing at the night hour. They all clustered together to provide warmth and comfort the little ones who were still gnashing.
I was just alone at an end with my forehead placed on my knee.
"Hey ,you! Won't you move over there, or do you want to die before you die?" The guard on duty asked me.

I tried raising my head to look at him but the torchlight flashed directly into my eyes.
I wondered why he was bothered about me. After all, by dawn I'm still going to be killed.
I returned back to my position and tried as much as possible not to shiver or jerk backwards again.

The wind kept rushing in through the numerous windows making a weird noise. The night was long and cold. The cloud barked and showed it's natural light to us.

With the remaining conscience left in him,the guard gave up his blanket and sweater for me.
As he turned to leave,I held him by his hands and asked in a very low voice " why are you concerned about me?"
For the first time, I got to see his face clearly and likewise him.
Grace! He exclaimed in awe.
I closed my mouth in surprise when I realized that he was a classmate in secondary school.
Derack was his name.
I had a lot of questions to ask him like, why, when,how and the likes but I knew I just needed to set my priority aright.
I knew it's time for me to leaverage on his meekness and get away from here.
Derack was a timid and naive nerd.
He was always bullied and mistreated back then in school.
We were not really that close but I was among the few that accepted his personality and maximized every slightest opportunity I had to encourage him.
He was just too good.

There was no point asking him how he became a member of this association because I could totally relate.
No doubt that he was tired of being bullied and needed a backbone and protection. He wanted to belong.
Obviously, people of this nature often end up like this. I didn't care to know whether he had changed or not but I could sense a little bit of goodness in him.

We couldn't converse for long because it will surely amount to noise and become a nuisance to those who were fast asleep.
After so much pleading and melodrama I put up, he consented.
Although, he brought to my notice that what he was about doing was at his own risk and might take his life. And if at all anything should happen to him,I should inform his parents and give them an address to this place to claim his body.
This additional information made me more afraid.

"I'm helping you because you were the only one that gave me life when we were in school. I'm still very much grateful to you although I chose the wrong path. I have taken an oath and a blood convenant. It's called the "Brotherhood ties". We are one and we are each other.
This is a shrine and no one leaves here alive for security purposes.
Any attempt would be so dangerous,but I'm about to do the impossible because of youโ€ฆ."
Before he should finish talking,I gave him a deep hug because I was really touched.
We planned on how we were going to take off when day breaks. He was a trusted and committed fellow and that's why he had the keys to every doors and gates.
I pleaded with him to escape with me,but he emphasized on how impossible it was.
By 4am sharp, we decided to make a move. He gave me a bullet proof to put on and a torch light.
Just as I was about leaving the door, a little boy called me back saying, "Don't leave me please! I want to see my mummy. Mummy, mummyโ€ฆ" This he said repeatedly.

" Grace,let's go. Don't be too sentimental. Save yourself first."Derack warned me.
I kept gazing looks at the little boy in pity, shaking my head in disappointment.
Thereafter, I looked forward to where Derack stood, gave a heavy sigh of relief and went after the door.

We ran for a while but still within the building. The building was like an ancient church with many entrance.
We knew that the little boy must have raised an alarm and created awareness by now, and so we weren't gentle about unlocking the gates.
It made all sorts of noise because of the chains around it.

They ran after us in their numbers. On my attempt to run faster than my legs could carry, I had a dislocation. I began to leap which made Derack slowed down to give me a support.

We were able to unlock all the gaint gates but couldn't lock any back because there was no time.
We took a path by our left and ran for a while until Derack stopped and told me to continue.
He wanted to distract them for a while until he is finally killed so he doesn't die for granted.
I followed another route while he stood at the junction and waved his hands sending a signal to them to run after him.
They were releasing bullets in the process which made me afraid at every gun shot. But, being a skilled person he was, he was able to dodge the bullets.

They stopped chasing after him when they realized that he was alone and that I wasn't with him.
They now know that they were being tricked.
Unfortunately, to Derack's widest imagination, he was hit by a strange bullet. He didn't see it coming and so it took him unwares.

It was too late for them to retreat and continue to run after me.
I was already at the junction.
Now, it was 6am, I could see people and buses making travels. I knew I was now safe. My clothes were torn with enough sustained bruises.
I had a deep cut on my left arm but because of my adrenaline was at it's peak, I didn't feel the pain.

People who saw me in that state must have concluded that I am insane.
With a well folded 1000 note stucked in the pocket of the Jean trouser I was putting on, I boarded a bus back home.
Not to Uncle Jide's house this time, but to my parent's house.
I was admitted into a hospital after I became critically sick.

I would never forget how a long time kindness saved me from the Kidnapper's den.
It's good to be good!
One good turn deserves another.

What a normal tragedy! Stand up, stand out.

"They have chosen to accept the fate of the millions who have resigned themselves to a normal life, with normal activities, in the company of normal people, striving for normal goals, at a normal pace, with normal motivation, with a normal education, taught by normal teachers, who give normal grades, and live in normal homes, with normal families, leaving a normal heritage, for their normal children, who bury them in a normal grave. What a normal tragedy. "

THE PROFITABLE ONLINE WRITING COURSE

Your best plug to a profitable writing career.

Let's talk about branding.

What is a brand?

A brand is who or what you are known as/for. When people hear your name, what comes to their mind? That is your brand.

What is branding?

Branding means building yourself to fit into or become that which you want people to recognize you as. Branding involves consistent practice in order to constantly put yourself in the face of your audience as this person or that person.

Let's say you are a writer. How do you brand yourself as such? It's simple. Constantly writing contents and sharing for people's consumption. That way, people get to see you, know you and maybe, like you.

So, when your name pops up anywhere, you wouldn't need to ask people what they think. Your name already speaks volume.

Directly or indirectly, consciously or unconsciously, you are branding yourself in the hearts of people. The way you dress, the way you talk, the way you carry yourself, the way you react to things, the things you posts, the things you say tells people what kind of person you are.

When people meet or look at you, there is already that first impression they have about you. This could be a positive one or negative one. It's left for you to either prove them right or wrong by showing them who you truly are, and want to be seen as.

Here is what branding does for you.

One branding creates opportunities for you. If you're a teens coach, for instance. You are known for helping teenagers understand and live better lives. Then someone somewhere who has seen, heard and knows how well your brand performs could invite you to speak or teach at his teen's conference.

Who knows? This could translate to a lot of money and even enhance your brand visibility.

If you're a baker for example, and you have been known all over the internet as a good baker who delivers on his promise, then people can always reach out to you if they need baking services or even if they need to learn how to bake. Your brand would be the first that will come to their mind.

This is why you need to brand yourself to educate people about what you are and what you do, because the major challenge a lot of online business owners face in their industries that results in low sales is lack of awareness, people don't even know you are this or that you do this. People do not know you sell clothes. People do not know you bake. People do not know you're a hairdresser.

They cannot really go to you when they have such problems or need such services. They either do not know what kind of service you offer or they don't know if you are very good.

So, you need to brand yourself and let people know that this is what you do and you are very good at it.

Branding increases your social capital. If you are someone of value, people would really love to connect with you. They would love to listen to you. They would love to be seen around you.

Ever wonder why the followers of very good influencers keep increasing by the day? Isn't it obvious?

They are very good. There is a lot to learn from them. Value attracts value. If your brand is valuable, people would love to associate with you.

In the 3-in-1 Profitable Writing Course, you are going to be taught how to tell your brand story to educate your audience on what you do, emotionally attract them to you and make them feel that you're the person they should talk to about that product or service.
