Hi, my name is Onyemechi Aisosa Nwakonam.

I have always been fascinated with stories since childhood.

Before 2020 I have been putting some sketches here and there 

Fantasized about how great it would be to have the next great poem and best-selling novel.

Guess what I never got to reach those goals not because they were unreachable but because of inaction.

I dreamt but did nothing. I read writing tips but wasn’t clear as to how those tips translate into baby steps.

I have tried writing a play I stopped halfway  “Bloodless war”.

I’ve written poems, careless sketches. But that wasn’t what I wanted.

In December 2020 I choose to do a writing challenge to build a writing habit.

A little secret. I can’t count how many times I have chosen to make things work but never did.

Sometimes I wonder how come I am a bunch of procrastination mess.

Applying some habits strategies I missed three days in 31 days and I felt I could do this.

If I just showed up when I needed to not when I felt like it.

Things would work.

How it started

I started this blog to share my journey with you.

No Guru bullshit.

But a conversation with a friend telling you how it went.

Every month I will be sharing updates on my goals.

My word for this year is prolific.

I have decided to start small and let time work wonders.

By starting small I mean writing poetry, flash fiction, shortstories, and essays.

What’s the blog about

In this blog, I am going to share my writing mistakes and success. I will talk about 

  • Reading as a writer 
  • Writing and reading goals 
  • Building a writing and reading habit 
  • Poetry
  • Spoken word poetry 
  • Flash fiction
  • Short story
  • Editing 
  • Publishing in literary magazines
  • Contests

And many other things I just can’t remember now.

I would love to hear from you sincerely.
