Are you a writer?

Can you boldly tell the world you’re a writer?

What shows that? Is it because of the words you put on paper that makes you think you’re a writer, or it’s the value you bring into people’s lives by your words?

Your answers to these questions should help you know and determine your worth if indeed you’re a writer, as there’re many out there who claim to be writers but authentically, they aren’t.

And the reason is that, if you’re genuinely a writer, the words you put on paper should bring value to people’s life by…

Woe unto the man that goes against society

In a world where conformity is the norm, taking an unconventional path isn’t easy. It takes people with inflexible mental muscles to take such a course and continue relentlessly to the end without quitting.

Have you ever tried being unconventional?

How was the experience?

Was it easy for you?

When was the last time, you did such a thing?

Did you continue on the path? Or you gave up because of the persecution you faced?

Did everyone side with you or they went against you for trying to be unconventional?

Ugh. You’ve given some sigh. Haven’t you? Because I’ve made…

#1 — Anger

It’s never easy to put your life back on track when it goes off. People who have had to do such a thing can testify to it. That, by its challenging nature, some people don’t do the work but leave their lives to go down the drain.

If you have gone through this experience, you know it. It takes courage and a hefty dose of persistence to bring your life back on its proper track.

With that said, here are the ten tools I used to bring back my life on track when it fell off;


From traditional knowledge, anger…

Well if that's how you go about your writing. It's a great thing to do though...

I’m personally attracted to great writing — that’s what turns me on the most.

The debate about publishing every day leads to better writing or perfecting your works first before publishing continues. As the type of person who believes in the first, not the latter, and would always tell people to write and publish every day if they want to become better writers, I think that sometimes facing reality and allowing them to be balanced is the best way to go. I’m not saying this because I don’t feel firm with my stand — write every day. …

Ideas are all around us. All we need to do is to open our eyes, ears, and minds, and we will find them.

Being a content creator comes with a lot, especially with coming up with ideas. It involves a lot of thinking to draft an absolute message to meet your audience’s needs. Something that, failing to do right, you’re bound to disappoint your audience and ruin your reputation.

So, the moment you decide to be a content creator, prepare to allow your mind to travel to places that being an ordinary person, you wouldn’t. …

Great writing is all about quality and not quantity.

When it comes to being a brilliant writer, what comes into your mind? Is it about the amount of work you put out there? Or it’s the quality of work and the impact it makes in the lives of readers? I ask these questions because we often put our minds to the ton of work one has out there when we talk about being an excellent writer. And it’s the reason when you ask for advice on becoming a better writer; people will tell you, write every day.

But that’s not entirely true from my experience as a writer. When…

We all want to relate to being human

Have you ever read articles or books where the writer sounded holy and you, the reader, the sinner? How did you feel when you read things that people have written and what they were talking about was all you and nothing about them? And in it, they made you feel you were the wrong one, and they were the righteous ones who didn’t need to correct any wrong in their lives? How did you think? Were you bored or happy? Did you even spend time to finish the piece, or you left it?

As you’re answering the questions in your…

I write and educate people in this space because of my life experiences and the journey that I made to look for answers to my life problems, and the sense of purpose that I feel I have in my life.

I talk about issues, especially the things that will help people improve and better their lives. And by the response I get whenever I put something out there, I believe I’m on the right path.

In this post, I will share a dark phase of my life and how I overcame that darkness and found a better me. …

I like all the features you've talked about as they don't help us upgrade our loves alone but make us the human beings that we are created to be. Great article. Thanks for sharing it with us...
