Stretch your creativity

Haven’t we all had our fair share of the crippling writing advice: Write What You Know? The givers of this advice come at you with hard buttocks rendered rigid from sitting so long in the writers’ comfort zone. They don’t ‘waste’ time imagining what is unfamiliar to them and they don’t attempt to tell stories not crafted about characters like them within settings like the ones in which they live.

Write what you would like to read

There’s nothing more frustrating than writing stuff you’re not interested in. The words will lack passion, and it will come through to your readers.

Retreat to Rebirth: My Story by Ndidi Nkwokpara


MY BRIEF OVERVIEW OF RETREAT TO REBIRTH: MY STORY
A Book by Ndidi Nkwopara

“When “Retreat To Rebirth: My Story” by Ndidi Nkwopara first came to my attention, I mused to myself that this is probably one of the AMAZON self published craze that is sweeping the world now. How wrong I was. However, at the time. I waved the book off, closed my eyes and imagined the content of the book. I even tasked myself to visualise the cover, the #quality, the font, the type face. And above all, I thought I could, off my head, from previous book experiences, tell the content by the title.

Decisions! Decisions!!

Dear Dotty,

Happy new year!!! 💞💞

I know it’s kind of late but I still wanted you to know I wish you all the best in this new year.

I can’t believe 2016 is already over! I almost thought it’d never end, with all the heart ache rolercosters and broken dream caracels, it was like an amusement park of pain.

Honestly, I’d rather not dwell on the past because I know 2017 has greater things in store for me. I hope you’re as excited about it as I am because I can’t get over that fact that it’s going to be such a great year. This year I plan to publish another book, start up my own business and settle down in life.
