Book Rewiew: Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor

LagoonJust finished reading Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor and I must say I was enthralled from the first page. The complexity of the characters and their responses to ‘first contact’ reflected the plethora of reactions spanning the human experience. I found the mixing and mingling of myth with modern beliefs and technology to be a refreshing testament to the inclusion process of old and new instead of one overriding the other. Great read.

Playing the Seesaw

Okay, I’ll admit I’ve been away for a while.  2018 started off interesting, and while I intended to get back to giving tips on getting through writer’s block, I found myself drawn out on a tangent with my alter ego Aziza Sphinx taking the reigns.

The struggle is still real as I find myself now caught between two pieces of work, one to be finished and one to be started. The layers are piling on as N’Kanya Belle of Sun’suda claws her way to the forefront dropping essential facts about not only her current world but the one before. Meanwhile, Valids, my Burning Queen, demands that I correct the wrong I have done to her and her mate.

Tug of war is my current state. My characters have all decided they want to fight dirty. And at the moment, I am more than willing to comply. So, I’ll again crawl into my nightly cave, their whipping girl for the time being. But in the end, I feel as if they will get what is coming to them, and it might not be what they want.

Drift me a Merry Christmas

Never too early to work on a holiday story. Think I’ll work on this one next.

Drift Me a Merry Christmas

I’m a party pooper. A scrooge if you will. I’ll admit it. But in my defense, the holiday season hasn’t exactly been kind to me. My mother died when I was 2. Two minutes, passed two hours, two days after Christmas. My dad followed two years later, leaving me bouncing from one home to another, never spending the holidays beneath the same roof until I turned 18 and the system bid me farewell. I dug myself out of the trenches but this happiest time of the year never felt so happy to me. That is until 6 months ago, when I decided I wanted to take my hobby of racing more serious. I met a new friend, and let’s just say he promised to Drift me a Merry Christmas.
