My idea based on building ourselves is basically brief but can be expanded. 1. We need to organize a gathering wherein we shall be taught what being a writer is all about and how to make progress as a writer or as writer. 2. This forum will afford us the opportunity to meet ourselves, discuss ideas facislly and thrash some pertinent issues squarely. To do this, everyone shall be obliged to pay a a sum of money (flat rate) say 2000 for guest instructors and light refreshment. I believe that after such an event, our motivation will gear up ahead. Let me end here for now.

Really took out my time to read over this thread.
Mtcheeeeew I don't know wath kept me reading.
I conclude that u all can still make it
Re: Young Authors of Nigeria (YAN) -Join Now! by Emyo(m): 6:29am On Dec 25, 2012
aceyralph: Emyo this is a thoughtful write up though, but I do not see a room for opinions. I take it that you admonished us on the right path. Again, what I didn't really digest is about the "trio" I wouldn't want to misinterpret it but if you mean we should all subside while the "trio" carry on the duty, in that case I don't buy the idea nonetheless. Let's sieve and develop ourselve to become a united force, by so doing we can draw more capacity to influence and enthrone our ideas and ideals to the public. Correct me if I go wrong in this post. Gracias
if we all are to enter this new with YAN Community, we are to do away with politics. We are to run away from the talks of power. Only one person can lead us for the time been,,,except through effort recognition, he decide to delegate.
Re: Young Authors of Nigeria (YAN) -Join Now! by Emyo(m): 6:42am On Dec 25, 2012
seunpayne: So...that being said...what is the way forward? List them out so we can see.
without much words, I dream and talk of yan every day. Am not saying all tis without agendas to keep us working and writing.

I'd expected the officials set up to have got anthologies ready, done with constructive criticism, critique, got a web based site, and final touch to the constitution among other important activities without money like the setting up our our cooperate account.

Wh*t we ve now is too large, I mean our official needs reduction...three is enough.

Then if I happen to be among the three,

Dailynews will provide us with
1. basic rules
2. New/fresh register of members.
3. Build a blog site, were we wil build communities around our writers and a medium of interecting with them.
4. Get our authors to work, to provide us with short stories.
5. Fill our blog constantly with stories/poems from our authors.
6.Those who show cooperation, readiness and commitment will be give admin status on the blog.
7. Each stories takes it bite of critique...
8. The progress, reformation inter alia from the critique obtained from each author is monitored and observed.
9. Pledgerism is highly monitored.
10. We will be getting to the hearts of the people with good contents.
11. The intent is to build community of writers, and community of readers, fun lovers, critiques, observers and many more curious audience.

After we succeed in that simple task we move to the next step.

Which is...going offline...

In all we are task to write a fresh novel of 500 page with rules, principle and criteria observed and gathered from the critiques of our short stories and the communit?s LECTURE.

This task is to be monitored on an unpublished page.

God is our strength

1. Groups can arise from almost nothing
The desire to form and join a group is the best thing that can improve ones placement in the society.

2. Initiation rites improve group evaluations
Existing groups don't let others join for free: the cost is sometimes monetary, sometimes intellectual, sometimes physical—but usually there is an initiation rite, even if it's well disguised.


Aronson and Mills (1959) tested the effect of initiation rites by making one group of women read passages from sexually explicit novels. Afterwards they rated the group they had joined much more positively than those who hadn't had to undergo the humiliating initiation. So, not only do groups want to test you, but they want you to value your membership and position in associating with the society

3. Groups breed conformity
After joining a group and being initiated, we have to get a feel for the group norms, the rules of behaviour in that group. Group norms can be extremely powerful, bending our behaviours in ways we would never expect.

4. Learn the ropes or be ostracised
Group norms are extremely pervasive: this becomes all the more obvious when we start breaking them.

5. You become your job
Although groups have norms—rules that apply to everyone in the group—people have roles within groups and corresponding rules that apply to just their position.

6. Leaders gain trust by conforming
A high-profile, high-status role in any group is that of its leader, but where do leaders come from? In some groups, they are appointed or imposed from outside, but in many groups leaders emerge slowly and subtly from the ranks.


A study that has much to teach was carried out by Merei (1949) who observed children at a Hungarian nursery school. He noticed that successful leaders were those who initially fitted in with the group then slowly began to suggest new activities adapted from the old. Children didn't follow potential leaders who jumped straight in with new ideas. Leaders first conform, then only later, when trust has been gained, can they be confident that others will follow. This has been confirmed in later studies (with grown-ups!).

7. Groups can improve performance...
The mere presence of others can make us perform better. The presence of other people seems to facilitate our own performance, but more so when the task is relatively separate to others and can be judged on its own merits.

8. ...but people will loaf{hide under laziness}
In other circumstances, though, people in groups demonstrate a tremendous capacity for loafing. Another social psychology pioneer, Max Ringelmann , found in the 1890s that participants in a tug 'o war only put in half as much effort when they were in a team of 8 than when they were on their own. It seems that when hiding in the group is easy, for example when tasks are additive and each person's contribution is difficult to judge, people will slack off to an impressive degree
.

I pray this group will fish them out.

9. Groups breed competition
While co-operation within group members is generally not so much of a problem, co-operation between groups can be hellish. People may be individually co-operative, but once put in a 'them-and-us' situation, rapidly become remarkably adversarial.

I want to first congratulate all of us who made it successfully to 2013, congratulations because it wasn’t easy from the beginning to the end of 2012.

New Year usually come with new ideas, new hope, new dreams, new visions, new targets and new resolutions, so what are your New Year resolutions this 2013? I don’t know what they are, but I am pretty sure you have one- everyone does, including myself.

I want to use this medium and opportunity to apologize to those I may have wronged in the course of carrying out my day-to-day activities in the past year 2012, I sincerely ask for your forgiveness. To those I may have helped in one way or the other, I wish I did more, honestly. And to those who helped me in one way or the other too, I sincerely THANK you so much with love and gratitude.

YAN began its journey earlier last year, and I had great visions and dreams before initiating the association/group, and I still have that great enthusiasm that YAN will be a success. At this point, I want to also thank the pioneer members, in the persons of- Emma Ogiri, a.k.a Emyo, Christiana Eke, a.k.a Uniquexty, George Ukachukwu, a.k.a Peaceworld, Phoebe Ikechukwu, a.k.a Phiozy, Sunical, Aceralph, Happiness Otobo, a.k.a hapi-pearl, Chioma Orji, and to so many others who had been so faithful to this cause right from the beginning, and even at a time everyone seemed to have lost faith and passion in the group, these people stood by YAN, encouraging and motivating others via their emotional and encouraging words that always came at the required time. I want to specially thank Emma Ogiri and Uniquexty, you guys have really proven beyond doubt that you are ambitious young people, and with your spirits, believe me, you guys will go places, please do keep it up, eyes are watching.

Finally to all members, aspiring and intending members of YAN, I welcome you all to 2013, and I want to encourage you all not to lose faith and passion in this cause, because with God as our strength, YAN will succeed because it has come to stay and not to go unnoticed.

Do not be discouraged by the few setbacks, quarrels, and political feuds that took place within YAN some few months back, do remember that FAILURE IS COMMON TO EVERY SUCCESSFUL PERSONS IN LIFE, so YAN cannot be an exception, what matters most in life is our ability to overcome our failures and advance gallantly towards victory, of which YAN will by God’s grace.

In this New Year, YAN is going to be redefined to ensure it meets its set goals and targets, and to also benefit its individual members. But note, YAN will not entertain laxity, dormancy, and inactiveness of any member this New Year, so be ready to work, to act and to function with diligence, passion and faith.

In the coming weeks, you will be reading more updates on the activities and plans for the new year, please liven your passion once again for YAN’s sake, let all that happened in 2012 go with 2012 and let us advance harmoniously into 2013.

happy new year YANNERS!
