It is being able to do what one likes and enjoys doing. This emotional benefit is often intense especially when the writer's works enjoy good readership, discussion and recommendations. (less)

Of course, the burning zeal within might be too hot to contain for long. Still, a reasonable amount of time is needed to organize thoughts and ideas if they must come in appealing array. Apart from that, writing is not a difficult thing to do. It is simply about creating and resolving conflicts. If the conflicts are clear in the writer's mind, then he should endeavour to know his target audience sufficiently well in order to ensure that his means of resolving the conflicts is not only sustained throughout the work, but also informative to the audience. Then he could go ahead.(less)

“If we have a very big problem to deal with, it is the problem of realism, because we are weaker than our emotions.”
Aihebholo-oria Okonoboh

“THE HOMECOMING is the face of reality. (A literary approach to the social re-engineering of a decadent society)

It was a two-fold finding - a home and a son - and a time for happy family reunion and laughter. Life went on normal in the genteel old town and Ekoyata Egbe was glad to return home to Iyala. And disappointed he was. For he was confronted by unsightly community in the clutches of corruption and superstition.
In a moment too soon, Ekoyata found it hard to believe that his father, Egbe, was a member of a caucus and could give him as a ransom for his image. Also revealed was the top secret of the willful neglect of Iyala because the strong caucus benefited from confusion, with a long history of assassinations. Until he was warned about his honesty of purpose, Ekoyata did not know that he had taken the central stage in the fight and campaign against the caucus. Was he also going to be the next victim of assassination?

It was the beginning of a misery that would sit Ekoyata on he keg of peril... with the thrill of romance... adventure... and keen justice. Would daring to accept the help of a handsome stranger named Okojie prevent the caucus from finding his corpse? ....”
