Random Musings


I have been AWOL for a while, guess I just needed to sort out my emotions, but I am back again. First of all I will like to say thank you to, for giving me an award. I am so sorry that I haven't done anything about it and still not even sure what to do about it. Nevertheless I am so grateful and a big hug goes to you.

Now back to what's on my mind right now. I need a few suggestions. There is a writers competition I want to enter. I have to write short stories for this category : 8-11 0r 12-15years old. I don't really know what to write, can anyone help me? Give me some suggestions? Trying to see if I can write about a superhero but hey how will I start? My forte is romance, but how will I write about romance where is concerns kids? Will that be considered appropriate for a kid's novel? Even though by 8 years old I was reading Mills and Boons and The James Hadley Chases. Do children read that?

Will really appreciate your comments and work on it.

Secondly i will try and send some excepts of the novel I am working on and will like your feed backs. I am so shy and afraid about this one, but I just have to do... I have told a lot of people that I am a writer, but I don't think there is anything to show for IT...sighs.. I have to step up my game if you know what I mean..

Time to call it a wrap, will chat later...

P.S. I am patiently waiting for your suggestions. Thank you.

In Memory Of A Dear Friend

Hi everyone, I am sure we all heard about the plane crash on Sunday, where all the passengers died. Hmm this was a sad Sunday, one that will not be forgotten any time soon.  A darling friend was on that flight and I still can't believe that she is gone. Again...I don't even know the questions to ask or what to say.
Now what is pissing me off is the statement the Dana Air guy said...." he said that being grounded they will loose about 1billion naira in a month. Do we always think about money? He also said that people shouldn't say anything until they are sure what caused the crash. It has been reported that the plane was faulty, and even when they crashed, the rescue team was terrible.
Why do things have to get this bad before we take actions?
If I were the president, I would have arrested everybody involved pending investigations. I even heard that the Indians, i.e. the owners, have fled the country..
Why did we allow this?
Please can someone tell the Dana airline manager to shut up and not say a word...

I rest my case here, but if I say that I am happy I deceive myself. Don't think I want to fly locally any more.

God help us.

Do have a lovely day and accept my condolences for those who lost someone in the crash.

Ayoola Oluwakemi Somolu may your gentle soul rest in the bosom of the Lord. You will be greatly missed.
