Nurturing Writing At An Early Stage by Tubelsaviz: 3:30am On Dec 31, 2012
Dr. Ben Carson said: "Achievement does not just happen to a few selected people. Anyone can be an achiever." This implies that this generation can produce better writers than these four Nigerian Literary legends. How? Right from infancy children should be educated on the values of education and visiting the library regularly and should be discouraged from excessive social pleasures. As a boy, Ben Carson's mother advised him to cut down on the amount of time he spent watching television programmes and utilize the time more effectively by reading at least two books every week. Today, apart from his success as a medical doctor, he is undoubtedly a renowned author. Just as we eat to become stronger, we read to become better writers. Without constant reading, one can;t be an impeccable writer. Achebe, Adichie, Okri, or Soyinka were not created more specially than us. Our generation can make readers marvel. We can produce greater literally giants. Yes we can! All we have to do is to imbibe the reading culture in our children ab initio and we should also encourage young, upcoming writers. If they can do it, why can't we?

Nice one but chimamanda is from our present generation oh...though she is quite successful. But I still get your point of grooming young writers-to-be in d right way.
