Hello everyone.

It’s been a while since I last blogged. Oh, who am I kidding. I haven’t put up a blog post in two months and I’m so sorry about that. My life has been kind of… stuck in limbo and it reflected both in my writing, my health journey, and my blogging

I will now take each of these issues one, at a time.

Snippet Wednesday: A sip from Otaare

I’m working on yet another story. Put one of my old stories on hold so I could see if I could possibly make an LT3 call for Enemies to lovers.

It’s a work in progress and I’m almost 40k in. Of course there are days when I’m writing and all I can think is ‘this is crap. No one’s going to want to read this!’ But I keep right on writing. Edits will come and it will get better. That’s what I tell myself.

So, as is my usual refrain. Please forgive all grammatical errors and inconsistencies and enjoy:

Snippet Wednesday: A sip from Serendipity

Life didn’t just interrupt a couple of days for me. It interrupted my entire week. For the past week, I’ve been working 12-16 hours day. I’m exhausted and my brain is crying. I did manage to do some writing though. The only question is, how fruitful is said writing. Some days, I feel like I’m writing garbage. But I do know that a couple of weeks after, when I get a look at the script, any problems are things I can just as easily fix.

That’s what I tell myself every day when I wonder what the hell I’m writing.

Today’s snippet however is not what I’ve been working on since last week. Instead, it’s a story I started┬álast year but couldn’t finish. This is the year I shall finish writing it :). So, enjoy. And like I usually say, ignore all grammatical errors and typos.

Snippet Wednesday: Sipping from Help! That Chicken’s Staring At Me

So, I wrote this story late last year because it was Christmas at Lagos and I just felt like writing the story. So, I ended up writing it, and I put it away for a while. I’ve started editing it and I should hopefully be sending it to a beta reader so. When it’s all ready, I should be sending it to a publishing house for hopeful publication. Will fill you guys in on how things go.

For today, here’s the snippet. And as is my usual refrain, please ignore any typos or grammatical inconsistencies as this is a rough draft:

Snippet Wednesday: A Transference sip

First off, I couldn’t get any internet at home and I wasn’t in the office, so I do apologize for only now uploading this snippet. I have to find an alternate internet source stat!

Now on to the story. This is another story, tentatively titled Transference, that I only wrote about two pages of before abandoning it. And it’s a story I want to get back to, if not this year, then maybe January of next year, although I’m holding out for this year. Anyway, this was meant to be a mecha story for an LT3 call from a while back. And I do hope to write it and send if off to LT3 when I’m done with it.

As is my usual refrain, this is a first draft, so ignore grammatical errors and inconsistencies and enjoy:

Snippet Wednesday: A May/December WIP

I started this story about two years ago, wrote a page of it and┬áhaven’t touched it ever since. Well, I hope this year’s the year I finish quite a number of the stories I’ve started and this May/December WIP is one of them. I have a shit ton of stories on my plate right now, so I think I won’t be getting back to this story till middle of the year but the plan is to have it written before the end of this year and I intend to make sure that that happens. And if you like the short, please let me know :).

So enjoy the snippet and as is my usually phrase, this is a rough edit so please pardon any grammatical errors and structural problems.

Snippet Wednesday: A Just His Luck Snippet

I know. If you’re in my part of the world, this is already Thursday. So, I’m sorry I’m just putting this up. But my internet connection was terrible last night. So terrible that I headed off to bed. When I woke up this morning and saw that the internet had fixed itself, I figured, it’s still Wednesday in some parts, so why not just go ahead and post my snippet :).

Today’s snippet is from a novella I started about two years ago and never got around to finishing. Hopefully, I would be able to finish it this year because I have written about 20k words of it, and it would suck if I just let the story die out like that. So many things to write, so little time :).

My usual refrain: this is a first draft so forgive me the typos and grammatical inconsistencies. Just read and enjoy. It’s an unusual story so tell me if you like it:
