This prompt bring us to the end of the 30-day writing challenge by afrobloggers. I am so proud of myself for writing consistently this past few weeks amidst personal challenges. I honestly hope to continue writing frequently from now on.
If this is your first time of reading my post, kindly avail yourself to my previous posts and have an amazing time reading about life through my lens.
“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it.”
― Octavia E. Butler
To African bloggers all around the globe:
Just like any other skill, writing gets better with consistency. The most important thing about blogging is to have a story, deliver it with gusto and watch it come alive in the minds of your readers.
Don’t stop writing, don’t stop telling your stories, it may not look like it but there is always someone reading and trust me, it’s perfectly okay if that someone is YOU.
Getting ideas may prove tasking, but remember that everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. Never, ever doubt yourself.
My dearest advice to you is one of my favourite quotes by Franz:
“Whatever story you decide to put out there do make sure you don’t bend; you don’t water it down; you don’t try to make it logical; you don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”
— Franz Kafka
Always spill your truth unapologetically. There is nothing more beautiful to read in the world, than a story that says it as it is.
