Greenhorn.

I never really saw myself as a writer, I sometimes fantasize about being one, ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ™ˆthatโ€™s as far as it goes, however, I like to put things down because itโ€™s what I gather great writers do.๐Ÿค“ Why I donโ€™t see myself in that light may be one of many reasons ๐Ÿค”

May be I fear my writing will not be as great, or someone will suggest i should have used these words or described it like that. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฅ

There are awesome writers and I donโ€™t even come close. ๐Ÿ˜”

Donโ€™t get me wrong, I donโ€™t lack self-esteem, ๐ŸŒš because I am Geenat!

๐Ÿ˜ถ

The thing is, I do applaud a good write-up, I recently just finished one of Ted Dekkers series Black, Red, white and Blink Of An Eye all I could say to myself, Isโ€ฆ God when? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ ๐Ÿคฏ

I presume after Trevor Noahโ€™s Born a crime, which was one of my fastest read,๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ wordsmiths like these should be treated like an endangered specie, ๐Ÿ˜ถ they pull you at your witโ€™s end, take your mind on a voyage in such a hurry, it exciting, itโ€™s like a high I find amusing,๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ it gladdens my heart. ๐Ÿ˜‹ โค๏ธ

How exciting it would be to have a one on one with someone like Chimamanda Adichie and tell her half of her story in Americanh or That Thing Around Your Neck happened to me,๐Ÿ˜ itโ€™s so amazing how I feel I somehow know her, only because I read some of her books, ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ I will share my wonder and excitement on how she explained it so well, I can tell it to anyone like a movie and the person will quickly comprehend.๐Ÿ˜‰

There are days in this ending month of March where I notice a thing, an event, and Say to myself "this will make a great story" if I should write it.๐Ÿ˜ž
I could write from the many interviews I attended with the kind of drama they came with, maybe write about the two horrible bosses I have had, ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ the complicated relationship I was involved in, ๐Ÿ™„ the kind of thoughts the teenagers in my church bestowed upon me,๐Ÿ˜˜ how life is, living with my sister (stress and love), the kind of friends I have (creatives), my dramatic trip to Kogi,๐Ÿ˜ or about the Nigerian politics.ย ๐Ÿ˜”.

Itโ€™s a lot, someone will suggest i start a blog, but I think there should be a real reason for me to go into it, if I wanna have a blog, I should be able to offer some kind of solution or hope and not just write. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ถ

I could hear someoneโ€™s opinion on a matter and I could think of a quick story in my head around it I may not provide a solution, instead, I will try to think of where the person is from and how life has been for s/he. ๐Ÿง  ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

In all of these, I have resolved to push myself to write more, write anything, something, fiction, facts, everything. until I become a recognized writer. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘€

I know itโ€™s been two years I published anything on medium, ๐Ÿ˜žitโ€™s not like I have not written anything, but I have, reasons are I have not been able to bring myself to publish any, but not anymore,๐ŸŒš I started by browbeating my friend to make me write something within a deadline even though he failed I forgaveย him. ๐Ÿ˜’ ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ถ.

M ypoint is that, this way I can whip out a quick write up, a short story, or something in-depth. ๐Ÿ˜

So to my sunken bikini bottom writing level, I say goodbye, ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ I now consider me a writer,๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ so far the great Shonda Rhimes said: "if you think ๐Ÿ’ญ of writing then you are a writer". ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Thanks for reading โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ
