Roses And Thorns #1

Roses and Thorns is a series by QueenBee Aurora about a writer who meets and falls in love with a man she meet at a book exhibition. But she will find out that the man is not who he seems. She ends her relationship with him, just at the moment she finds out she is pregnant. The series will see through her journey with the pregnancy, her career, and finding a new man. But would she choose the man who is the father of her baby, or the man she truly loves? The airport taxi cab honked in front of a bungalow, and then, a tall, fair skinned woman stepped out of it, dressed in a wide leg jumpsuit. She pushed her long Peruvian weave out of her face and proceeded to knock at the gate. “Who is that?” she heard a woman’s voice inside in…

The Fourth Finger Marathon

Good evening, fam. First, I’m not talking to those of you who missed #ChatwithSally. ? If you missed it, you missed a lot. It was fun. Go on Twitter and check the hashtag #ChatwithSally to catch up. There will be a real life meet up either in April or May. So if you missed this and you’re in Lagos, you can always get to meet me then. So unto the business of the day! I’ll be posting six episodes of The Fourth Finger, starting from the 7th to the 12th of March. The Fourth Finger is a series, different from It’s Another Saturday in writing style and story. It’s Another Saturday was easier to write because it was done in the first person narrative. Thoughts and intentions of the characters were easier to understand because they were speaking directly with you. Most writers use this form because it’s easy writing.…

What You Guys Did Is So…

Good morning! Today I’m here to just air my mind and tell you how I feel about all of you, so please read this carefully and with an open mind. Just recently, I was interacting with Audrey Timms and she told me something that deeply touched me. We were discussing about you guys, yes, everyone that comes here and takes time out to read the craziness in our heads that we post on the regular. So she was telling me what you did to her and I was amazed. According to Audrey, a lot of you contacted her and bought her book! In fact, you guys were so amazing that she has extended that same love to me – in cash, of course. You won’t believe how my head was swelling over the words with which she used to describe you. What can I say? I feel happy, I feel…

Dear Writer

I have not done a totally random post in a while, so I have decided to sit before my laptop and write this because it has been piling up in my head for some time now. And after a little research, I think it’s time to unload the crappy things you and I have written. Yes, I include myself because I have written crap and might still be found writing crap (may never admit it though). Today, I will not just be dishing out the dirt, I’ll be listing clichés and every other BS that we often have used. In no particular order, I begin: 1.       Tall. Dark. Handsome Punctuated for serious emphasis. He can’t be anything less. *clears throat* For real? Can’t he be short, fair and ugly? Or fat and oily? Or tall and stupid? Or even the lovechild of Whoopi and Segun Arinze? Why must he…
