Does it happen with you, too?
A situation where you have the perfect sentence by sentence plotline for your next article in your mind while in the bathroom.
Then all of a sudden or even gradually you lose it all upon reaching your desk to pen it down.
For a very long time I’ve been a victim to failed goals. I’d set them and work tirelessly towards them but while I get to have a few wins most times I lose out.
Yes, that seemingly old-fashioned content writing strategy have been my secret to writing epic posts every week.
Your vocabulary as the word suggests involves anything and everything you say — vocalise.
Some months ago, I shared with you my six step writing process. In that post, I explained that writing is not a single activity but a bouquet of activities. You can read that post here to get up to speed.
The most popular excuse people give for not writing is lack of time.
Punctuations are vital parts of written pieces. Their absence or misplacement could make your pieces look really amateurish and unprofessional to your readers. This is because they serve as torches lighting the way to the piece for your reader.
It is therefore very puzzling to see many writers ignore them, seeing such role.
Call it a return on resource investment and you won’t be wrong. Continue reading
Sentences are the lifeblood of our conversations.
Yes, those aggregations of words, phrases and clauses are vital to communication. Their calibre could serve as a boost to the spread of our message. Continue reading
“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” – Dr. Seuss
From stringing sentences to brush strokes and lyrical rhythms, the work involved in creating beautiful art is boundless.
Yes, producing works of art can be tedious.
Finishing An Art?

How Greed, Ingratitude and Lack of sharing are depriving you of happiness
You’ve just landed a multi-million dollar contract but you see it like a normal feat!
Your business just recorded an 80% profit for the year but all you said was “it could be better”!
You passed all your exams and are topping your class yet you see it as an everyday thing!
You have all the human factors seemingly required to make a happy man but you aren’t happy!
You have a task to accomplish, a goal to attain and or a mark to reach for which you estimated it would take three (3) long hours to achieve but rather surprisingly, it’s been five days now and you are yet to start that task. What’s stopping you?
The three (3) positive attitudes you must imbibe to be successful
It is always a pity to see someone settling for far less than their capability. They never heed to the advice – Be positive.
They thus always conform to the negative manner in which the society portrays things.
Whether you’re just starting out or have been writing for a long time, there are always days when you want to do anything but writing. On such days you feel like beating yourself up. Writing productivity is lost and the creative muscles are dulled (at least for that moment). Well, I am an avid fan of staying productive (churn out great pieces) and such days are always nightmares. I feel awful on them.

While it is true that how you present your pieces determines how you are viewed, does it mean you must be formal?
Five tips to Staying focused on your goal
You nurse an ambition and pursue it. It is your goal and you focus on it. Many of us see our goal as priceless and worthy of all our effort. But sometimes you find yourself getting distracted from the goal itself, you lose focus and thus eventually lose the goal.
It’s commonplace nowadays to hear someone advice another: “set a goal.” or “Make it a target!”
Goal setting is such an integral part of our everyday lives that gives us a focus, a direction or path to thread.
In my bid to keep up growing and developing (being better day by day), I’ve always been among those who are so eager to set goals but haven’t been on the fortunate side of things when it comes to achieving them.
Everytime I fail to hit a deadline or attain a goal, I keep asking myself -Why is this so? Why can’t I achieve these goals?
I then found out that it wasn’t my goals that were wrong it was my approach to achieving them that was at fault.
