Some people know from a very early age that they want to be writers. I am not one of them, I never set out to be a writer. Because the art of producing a great story or make animal characters talk, seemed beyond my capabilities. But I have always been – and still am – an avid reader.
I remained passionate about reading but not writing until I moved continents, Africa to Europe. And so, writing came to me as a way of dealing with culture shock. With no friends around to share the experience, I had no choice but write or otherwise risk ending up in a mental institution (I jest).
Well, I confess the writing process hasn’t helped much because now I’m teetering on the brink of madness staring at a blank page. Probably a reason I’m trying my hand at poetry because there’s no such thing as a writer’s block with poetry, it’s either you say or don’t say it. Right?
Anyway, I created this space to share some of my writings. So, welcome and thank you for reading.
