I’ve loved reading from a tender age of five, and this hobby was encouraged by my father who bought loads of books for my reading pleasure whenever I wanted.
I remembered a moment when I listed almost ten books for him to buy while in my third year in the primary school, I was really into books! J I am certain he would have wondered what I get from reading the tons of stories. I might just ask him what he thought about my craze then.
I tried my hands at writing when I was in the junior secondary 2 with a friend who equally loved reading. We did complete the adventure book, but we were unable to follow up with publication. What did we even know about publishing then? Nothing, but we had a dream of making the book into a physical one which never saw the light of the day. This was due in large part to the fact that my friend and her family left the country before the end of our junior class. And the dream was shuffled off!
Years on, the writing bug wouldn’t let me be, and after years of not purposely writing, I finally joined a Self-publishing School SPS after listening to a Summit I attended online. Their fees weren’t cheap, I can tell you that, but I had a goal to achieve, so I made up my mind to go for it. And as they say, the rest is history. I persisted and pushed and tugged with procrastination, and unseemingly enormous obstacles which I conquered with lots of perseverance and dedication. I finally had the first draft of my novel completed in July of 2016! How cool was that? J. Veeerry Cooool.
Do you know how it feels when you achieve that unthinkable task that seemed impossible at the beginning, and you finally found out that it wasn’t that hard (if I may say so J) to achieve? It felt exhilarating and intoxicating. I did it! I wrote my first draft of 40,000+ words!
So here I am inviting you to come along to bring that book to you so that you could benefit from some insights and learn new things to use in your life hopefully. I need your support to get it done and presented to you both as an e-book and paperback.
