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
- Spoken word poetry
- Flash fiction
- Short story
- Publishing in literary magazines
And many other things I just can’t remember now.
I would love to hear from you sincerely.
