We have finally come to the end of this challenge. I really want to say a big thank you to Julie O. for helping me get my creative juices flowing.
I also want to say a big thank you to my readers and fellow bloggers who followed my posts religiously, you all are amazing. It’s important I let you know that it was you guys who kept me going even when I didn’t feel like it.
A lot of the stories I shared came from a single experience of my stay in Niger state, Nigeria. It’s amazing how a single experience gave birth to a series of events worth narrating. With the help of this challenge, I was able to harness so much from that to tell inspiring stories one post at a time.
I highly recommend participating in writing challenges because it opens a channel of untold stories you may not have found worth telling or elaborating.
Writing challenges also proves beyond doubt the possibility of you publishing amazing blog posts every single day. Nothing helps to fine-tune your writing than more writing and re-writing so don’t stop writing.
I hope to continue telling my stories unapologetically, without watering it down or sugar-coating it. Writing in itself is a war you fight between the idea you have in your head and how it eventually comes out in your stories.
At the end of day, like William Faulker rightly said; you just have to get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.
However, to gather stories and experiences you have to go out there, live your best life and unleash your potentials because you can’t sit down to write if you haven’t stood up to live.
