One of those months that come once every year. Let’s tag-a-long then, will you? I will tell you why you should.
I am elated inside-out having chosen to join a whole universe to join the #WinterABC2021 festival hosted by Afrobloggers. For one, I am that kind of blogger who makes goals to write consistently. Then life happens.
This season I am making myself an engaging promise to soldier through these 22 days of creative fellowship. All thanks to Afrobloggers for this festival and all writers who have influenced this zeal to write, write and write.
Okay, what’s Afrobloggers?
Thanks to my new profound love for Twitter I bumped into a wonderful writers community. Afrobloggers is a whole universe of African bloggers that supports all creatives. I have to say, they have added some Chilly vibes to my profile.
From the time I followed them, they have kept their promise. I have since connected with diverse writers and I learnt something new everyday. Blogging will never be the same again.
So, what’s happening in June?
In June we are going to write like it’s quarter to Apocalypse. The target is to satisfy the thirst of #WinterABC2021 by writing something on your blog on all the 22 week days of June 2021. Yes, here in Africa it’s winter, and we need to warm our hearts with some sweet art. Obvious with a steaming cup of coffee.
Just so you know, 1-4 June, 2021 is Creatives Week. Lookout for stories that remind you of a writers journey. This stretches from just picking a topic to write on until the reader enjoys the final piece. What happens exactly in between the two points? Only a writer can tell.
It is my hope as a writer that this journey will transform us. That is me and whoever is reading right now. Not forgetting every other writer pushing through the boundaries of ink and paper.
2021 has been one of the odd years and we are already halfway through. Although not as depressing as 2020, we are still nursing the wounds of Covid-19.
It has not been easy to maintain a writing spirit knowing a lot of people are terrified. Hopefully this festival will revive every broken pen that ran out of ink in 2020.
