Happy Good Friday! I hope you’ve been enjoying the holidays as much as I have. 🙂
The short story I wrote in 2015, The Day I Will Never Forget is set in 1990s Nigeria and today, it’s finally an eBook. With the eBook comes a brand new book cover too. So, if you haven’t read the story before, this is your chance to immerse yourself in Ezekiel’s (and Miss Agbo’s) world for a few hours … or days. Or however long it takes you to finish it sha. Don’t worry, I won’t judge you. Hehe!
Happy Friday! How was your week? Pleasant and eventful hopefully. Today is exactly one week to Good Friday. Yes o, Easter is almost upon us. And to think Shrove Tuesday was just a few weeks ago. Time waits for no man, I tell you.
Welcome to the last week of March! Dear Obajimi was published as an eBook at the beginning of this month? Today, I’ll be sharing the first letter, which is also the first chapter titled One of Many. If you haven’t read the story, it’s still available for free.
Here’s the summary:
After the mysterious disappearance of her husband, a woman writes a series of letters in a desperate attempt to make sense of the calamity of a missing spouse. These letters provide insight into the life the couple lived before Obajimi’s disappearance and the hurricane of changes that occur while the Police investigate. By the last letter, will she discover what happened to her husband?
Now, let’s see why Morenike, the writer, captions her first letter, One of Many.
Happy Friday (or Saturday, depending on your time zone). I hope you had a fulfilling week. To end the week, I decided to share this picture quote by the famous novelist, F. Scott Fitzgerald:
Growing up in Lagos changes the way you view the world. For me, it has fundamentally colored and shaped the way I analyze things. So, it’s only natural that a discussion on writing will start from an experience set nowhere else but Lagos.
To round off the week, some wise words by Albert Einstein:
Happy New Month, and Ash Wednesday! March is here at last. 🙂 At the time I wrote this story, I had no idea what an epistolary short story or novel was. But as it turned out, that was precisely what I had written.
