Of Anniversary Coffee With A Writing Challenge

If you were having coffee with me……

coffee mug next to fire

I would tell you that if you haven’t figured me out by now you really should know that I am is a story teller….. I tell stories. Life happens and I tell stories.

Well technically I write them, but in my head, as I write, I tell the story, and I imagine, you really are here, listening, my imaginary audience, I even imagine how you will react the way you are shaking your head right now and then reading this paragraph again from the start…. Its freaky isn’t it

I know right.

…..and there is a fire, there’s always a fire, the Story Gods are appeased by the flames, as it has always been. Fire is my spirit animal.

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you that you are a voice in my head, correction, one of the voices in my head. Don’t be alarmed I am not a crazy person, and stop It!!! Stop trying to imagine what goes on in my head.

My head for your own information is quite fine, I had it examined today even. I looked in the mirror and I thought to myself I look fine right? And my hair is quite long!!

My brothers agree with you too.

If all the people who thought exactly what you are thinking right now (yes I read minds sometimes besides you are a figment of my imagination remember) if all those people were doctors I would be telling you this story from the comfort of an asylum and I would be asking you why straitjackets don’t come in any fun colours…. A rainbow coloured strait jacket Id rock that.

also dont believe my brothers they are no better, they just dont write

If you were coffee with me I would tell you that if my blog had gone to High School it would be matriculating or writing its General Certificate of Secondary Education O levels just about now.

As an anniversary gift to my blog I shall present it with a blogging challenge to write a blog post everyday for the month of September. The general theme of the posts will be #MyAfricaMyWords and you will get an insight into who I am, why I blog and the place I call home.

Brace yourself  and do drop by to read, hang out and encourage me…. If you would like to take part in this challenge, consider yourself tagged… You Are In. Bring a friend.

Ps I have been day dreaming on the future of storytelling I wont be impressed until someone invents (you know how some phones have that speech-to-text function) a thought-to-text function you simply think out the words and they are plucked out of your head to magically appear on the screen including the relevant images ……

You should come visit my head.

Have an awesome week.

  1. Happy blogiversary B! I didn’t know that was a real word either…

    You and your brothers look like you have way too much fun! And the palm fronds in the background of your pictures make me want to go back to the tropics. The joys of being warm (or at least not being cold) are not to be underestimated! As long as you manage to avoid heat stroke…

    I’m looking forward to your daily posts in September! I’d love to learn more about your little corner of Africa.

  2. Happy anniversary or is it bloggoversary…

    Your posts have brought much joy, provoked some thought and provided some great free lessons.

    Please continue to do what you’re doing because your work is much appreciated.

    PS: The thought to text function sounds good. I think I’ve seen it in a movie or two, but attached to a wheelchair. Hope it becomes a reality that’s accessible on our phones some day soon.

  4. Congrats on your 4 years of blogging! Only just found you but looking forward to your posts in Sept – have a feeling they will definitely entertain!!! Do you know what – I think so many of us would be deemed certifiable if “they” could see inside our heads – but there is to be said for the coloured strait jacket…..As for thought to text function – reckon it would need a good censor button!!! Great to connect, C x

      well technically the blogging has been far less than four years but my first post was in 2013 and posted at the randomest of schedules ^_^
      Still here we are.
      hahaha no one needs to know our direct unfiltered thoughts….. a censor button would be a must
