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 http://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.
