BLOGVERSARY

HELLO ! WORDpress

Today marks the three year anniversary of #OACOJ BLOG and we have been sipping some jasmine tea since and FYI i actually have a jasmine plant in my backyard.

Three years ago i decided to start sharing my random and not very professional poems and write ups in here today , alhamdullillah I’m about to complete my first poetry book called the desert and beyond and it is available  for free on wattpad, and my first published novel A heart for the Slum also available on wattpad.

I couldn’t imagine coming this far I actually didn’t think i would have people who understood me and actually read my write ups or even followed me on here, today I’m grateful for this opportunity , an internet connection and my readers, you keep me going even when i lose motivation and suffer a writers block or when I’m absent for over a month and very inconsistent , SORRY I Have sickle cell Disease so sometimes i can’t make time for my blog, yes being chronically ill makes you BUSY.

BYe ! Thank you

Ocarina — Brotherly Love

Sometimes I have no idea of what to put on my watercolor paper. Today was one of those days. I like drawing lines with my dip pen (more so with the broad tipped nibs than the more narrow tips). My pen strokes weren’t as smooth as I would have liked. Instead of fullness of convex […]
