  1. This is really insightful. I love this. Write every time,even if it is bad… you are writer, write because you must.
    Budding writters do have insecurities and this words will go a long way in restoring theirs writters confidence.

  2. Onyekachi blows my mind. “I’m in an abusive relationship with Nigeria”… Very interesting phrase.
    I would choose to remember that, “the work is the achievement…”, always.
    Thank you, Rejoice!

  3. Wow. This is not of this world!
    “I’m in an abusive relationship with Nigeria and she worms her way into my work, even without my consent.
    For example, I’m writing a poem about depression or love lost, and before you know it, I’m talking about a boy from the Niger Delta who died from benzene poisoning as a result of oil pollution.”
    Just sheer Brilliance!
