Today on writing 101, we were told to write on this:”a post with roots in a real-world conversation”.
I was in a eatery when i overheard the conversation of two friends.
Tin:I want to stop writing posts.
Tin:I spend days to write my posts, but when i check my stats, am discouraged.
Fin:But i do feel you are a good writer.
When i heard the conversation of these good friends, i knew this problem has not only affected Tin, but has also affected some writers out-there.Most writers fail to gain attention because they are not willing to admit to themselves that they want it or at one time or another they did admit it, but then gave up too soon.
Most people write to gain the attention of the public, they may focus on writing a particular topic to become well known for their opinions about it.It was also noted that people write for different motive:
*To gain attention of the public.
*Some individuals have taken it as an habit.
*Lastly, people also write to express themselves.
When i heard this from the man who came to intervene, i also came up with my own theory:
‘ “No stat” fear is a sickness, dont let it put you on the “stop writing” sick bed.The only cure or prevention is to keep writing’.
Today on writing 101, we were told to write on this: A home where you lived when you were twelve.
I remember vividly when i was twelve, an apartment i called home before moving to a new house.In our house we had four main rooms, one living room, one kitchen, one dinning room and one hall.The hall had up to four rooms which represented the private room.
The living room is the first room when entering the house, and this room is well equipped with very beautiful furnitures and arts.Next after the living room is the dinning table which is filled with necessary equipments available.
After this is a place i cherish most, i love to call it “my best arena”, and this place is called the kitchen, i really love to stay in the kitchen.I remember the aroma, the extra food for assisting and also little things you get while staying.
The hall also had three different room sections, the first that of my parents, the second my brother and i definately stayed in the last room, which was smaller to that of my brother with comic papers posted around all the walls in my room.
Today on writing 101 we were asked to write on this:”your favorite childhood meal, the one that was always a treat, that meant “celebration” or that comforted you and has deep roots in your memory”.
I was about seven years old when i knew my best meal.My mom made sure she prepared this meal on saturdays and sundays, or better still anytime i demanded to eat it.The name of this meal is “pounded yam”.
Pounded yam is made by boiling yams in a pot, and once cooked, it is placed in a mortar and pounded or beaten into a smooth textured dough with a three-five foot tall pestle.
You might be wondering, what it is ate with.Pounded Yam can be eaten with any soup or stew of your choice.
Feel free to comment on what you feel about this meal.
Today is the ninth day of the writing 101, we were asked to write on this: “A man and a woman walk through the park together, holding hands.They pass an old woman sitting on a bench.The old woman is knitting a small, red sweater.The man begins to cry.
Fin and Tin have been married for two years now.Fin invests in her happiness, he tells her how much he adores her everyday.He also make sure he learns and encourages her dreams and also he takes care not to hurt her.
This has been the secret of the ever growing relationship.Tin has also kept her own side of the bargain, as she respects Fin’s mind,body and soul.Tin also make Fin her top priority, and she is also unconditionally honest with him.
The couple are always fond of taking a walk round, and spending quality time together.
I was sitted on a bench opposite an old woman, and i observed the couple for a while and to my greatest surprise, as the couple approached the spot where the old woman was, i saw a sudden change on Fin’s face, he became depressed and his wife noticed it, she has not seen him with this type of face expression before, she looked at him and saw little drops flowing from his eyes, and she could feel the dampness of his skin as she placed her hand upon his cheek.
I was curious to know what happened and i went to ask the man, he replied in a calm manner, “when i saw that old woman sitting on that bench knitting a small, red sweater it reminded me of my mum, it reminded me of the way i troubled her to take me to the park and she always come along with my clothes which she sowed, i remember i cause trouble in the park with some other kids and she pleaded for me.When i was helpless and did not have anything, she risked her life and gave me everything.She went through the most terrible pains and suffering just to bring me to this world.My mother’s love is something i cannot describe in words.Because no matter what i say, i will never really be able to justify it”.
When he was done, i couldn’t hold my feelings, and little drops rolled down my cheeks.
Fabregas has confirmed his move to chelsea, in a statement Cesc Fabregas said “I considered all the other offers very carefully and i firmly believe that chelsea is the best choice .They match my footballing ambitions with their hunger and desire to win trophies.They have an amazing squad of players and an incredible manager.I am fully committed to this team and i cant wait to start playing.
Fabregas also believes he has “unfinished business” with the premier league.It was reported that the 27 year old has signed a five year contract with the blues after his move from spanish giant Barcelona worth £30 million.
I am in Brazil, a week before the World cup and i went to the training camp of a number of national teams.I managed to purchase tickets for the opening ceremony for the game between Brazil and Croatia.
The stadium is a nice place and it has excellent views from all positions.It has excellent facilities and shopping malls, it accommodates tens of thousands of spectators in comfort.
Festivities for the opening ceremony began with the official song “ole ola”,and Jennifer Lopez also performed.
The crowd roared as their country players advanced down the field for a touchdown.
After the match, a side lost but supporters went home happy.
