My brother Seun says the greatest gift God gave him is the ability to scam people into thinking he can actually write.
That’s because the guy is every inch a writer. Seun’s blog posts are …..em, sorry, I’m still trying to come up with an adjective for them. He is an amazing writer and his free e-book For Days and A Night and e-comic Songs About Aids showcase his unique creativity.
I’ve been tagged in this Writing Process Blog Tour by him because he believes I’m a “fantastico” writer.
I’ll be answering four questions on my writing process. After that, I’ll be tagging three other amazing writers/bloggers, who will in turn answer the same questions and tag three others on their blog and… the beat goes on. So let’s go…
v WHAT AM I WORKING ON?
I’m writing bits and bobs of different things but what gets the most of my attention these days is a screenplay I’m working on. No title yet. My dad also wants me to write a poem on Mandela and I’ve chucked several drafts in the wastebasket already….it is a work-in-progress.
v HOW DOES MY WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS OF ITS GENRE?
Well, the only difference is that it is written by me. No story is totally new. Same stories told by different storytellers. That’s the way I see it.
v WHY DO I WRITE WHAT I DO?
It is the air I breathe.
v HOW DOES MY WRITING PROCESS WORK?
Hmm. I don’t think I have a process. A stay-at-home mom is supposed to have all the time in the world, but on the contrary, I don’t. Sometimes, I wait for inspiration and in a few minutes, the story is told. Other times, I could be mulling and fantasizing over a story for days. I try my best to scribble notes, so that I don’t forget a particular thought. That’s pretty much all there is to my writing.
Now the fun part! Yes! Tagging these three phenomenal writers:

I won’t be writing this if I didn’t have such amazing support from you, my reader. Thank you. Plenty.
Seun, brother mine, I won’t stop writing, thank you. And you too, Daddy, you too.
