IN THE BEGINNING
I am so happy I am writing this today. This page should have been created a long time ago but I am happy it has become a reality today.
This shall be my Creative Page. Here, I will display my creative writings and tell stories of my journey to the world of TALE WEAVING. But first, I have to go back to where the story started from.
I can still picture the scene quite clearly. It was in a modest sitting room in the family house at Aideyan street in the GRA part of Benin City in Edo State of Nigeria.
I was trying to tell my not-so pleased-parents why I had taken a decision which they found unpalatable.
I wanted to continue with my study of English And Literature while they wanted me to change over to Law.
My parents at this point had reached their wits end. All efforts to bring me to the Law department of the University of Benin where I was an English and Literature student had failed.
The Dean of Law was a member of the church where my father was a reverend minister but she could not achieve that feat. Several other attempts had been made that fell apart.
As my parents looked at me that day in the sitting room, it seemed they came to a concenseus:
‘You can go ahead and study English. it looks like that’s where you are destined to be.’
Yes! I sit cosy in that creative world today!
Over the years, as my study of English did not ‘seem’ to yield fruit and my decision was questioned, I began to wonder and ponder.
But today, I have ceased to wonder.
For my study of English has made me a WONDER.
After a downsizing exercise in the bank I worked made me jobless, I went BACK TO THE BEGINNING.
I cleaned the dust off my English notebooks and forged into a new world of creativity.
Today, I am THE ACE PROFESSIONAL
An AUTHOR – Writer of so many genres of Literature
COMMUNICATION COACH – English Grammar and writing Trainer.
An EDITOR – Painstakingly editing and proofreading manuscripts
And GUESS WHAT!
I need ENGLISH to do all these!
Any need to wonder any more?
I don’t think so!
Welcome to my world.
The world of THE TALEWEAVER.
