My first blog post, dropped on this day by this time of the day. Wow! by 4:19am, when I am supposed to be sleeping but have somehow managed to stay awake through out the night. Thoughts of the day ahead makes me wish I had slept earlier. Oops! Wishes, I guess were never meant to be horses. With eyes full, I strive to ensure my first blog post is one that is completed. It is really going to be a ride if the very first one goes like this.
I had always wanted a blog but didn’t want to bear the name blogger. (Chuckles). At some point, I felt all my friends are bloggers so I should look for another platform; but now, I think I am up for it. This could be my diary that I am letting you take a peek into. It could also be my little humble abode where I come with my thoughts to reside. It could also be my outlet. Buuuuuuuuuttttttt! I am letting you take not just a peek but a full read.
So, what else should I say? You probably want to hear all the stereotyped kind of introductions. (Palm on face) I am a semi-lazy writer; if there’s any word as that. Well then, My name is Kalu, Paul Chikaike; a citizen of Nigeria with an alias Paul Kay. One of the new generation of African writers, a mentee or protege of Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Adichie. I am also a performing poet who uses the stage as a page for poetry; a non fiction writer and novelist, one who draws inspiration from real life situations, author of THE VISIT (you could look it up on www.okadabooks.ng)
More so, do not expect the stereotypes. I would be dropping the notes as it is hitting on the head. At this juncture, I think I can stop and grab a bit of sleep. I can feel the army of migraines waiting for me.
