Posted in:
Kiru Taye tagged me on this fun thing making the rounds in the writing circuit.

Here are the rules: Go to page 77 of your current manuscript, Go to line 7, Copy the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs and post them as they are written. No cheating, Tag 7 authors.

My excerpt is from A Fiery Love, which I am still niggling over. Enjoy...

Washington DC - A Day At The Museum 1

Posted in: , , ,
Hi Peeps, hope your weekend has started off well? You won't guess where I am right now, Nigeria! But hey, nothing much to report. I'm still adjusting after the trip which took almost 24hrs, being searched after testing positive for explosives, jet lag, and many other traveling adventures. So while I settle down to write those down, enjoy these pictures from Washington DC. These were taken at the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of American History.

The Part Where You Apologize - Guest Post by Lilly Star

Posted in: , , , , ,

The strongest relationships stumble and when they do the ones that survive are the ones where the person who might have been wrong owns up to their mistake. It’s not just the “sorry” that counts, but the recognition with knowing you are fallible and that the person sitting across from you – that loved one from whom you seek validation and affection – understands that a brief setback isn’t a bad thing so long as reparations are made.

Dear Myne - Am I Making The Right Decision?

Posted in: , , , , ,

I dated this guy for 3 years, we were in the same department and class. I was faithful all through, but most of these years, I was just hanging on. This is because he had lots of attention from girls and didn't seem to care much about me, but I still kept on being in the relationship because I felt a change could occur. He called me his special girl, but he didn't treat me special.

Does Marriage Confer Special Relationship Wisdom?

Posted in: , , , ,

When I tell people that I write romance novels or that I blog mostly about issues in relationships, the next question from some of them is whether I'm married and for how long. I am sometimes tempted to answer in the negative to hear what they will say, but the replies when I answer truthfully gives me a pretty good idea.

Timi Dakolo - Love Song : Music Video Romance

Posted in: ,
I think it was my first year living in Edinburgh and those days, as now I guess, I scoured the internet for Nigerian music and movies. That was the same year Timi Dakolo appeared on West African Idol. I fell in love with his voice and delivery back then, and he hasn't disappointed since.

In this soulful rendition reminiscent of some of his previous work, he nails it yet again in Love Song. Love Song is off Timi‘s latest album Beautiful Noise, and this is a fitting video by Clarence Peters.
