Dream Writer by Ibrahim JIbril Ojomakpene

Dream Writer

Perturbed and distressed about writing lies my
friend. Wallowing in the fantasy of becoming a
renowned writer. In his innermost recess are
rhetorical questions (incessant to him); can I
write? Am I proficient in grammar? Where will
writing lead me? Do I have a mentor? Will I scale
through? .Are all these questions rhetorical? To
him it is a capital “Yes”, to me and great achievers
there are not, if only he had put his pen in motion,
for a Chinese saying goes thus; “the palest ink is
more precious than the most retentive memory”.
Writing is all about making known your views,
arguments, the treasures embedded in ones heart.
What uses are treasures if there are not explored??

Writing overtime has made many, living oracles
even after death. Their name stand immortalized. I
dare say known would say he doesn’t like to attain
such fit. To those who have attained such fit lies in
their path obstacles, bridges and different problems
arising from burdensome, lack of necessary tools
inter Alia. There stood on their fit, overcame those
hurdles and the sky became their starting point, for
they went beyond the skies. A writer can with word
move the world a bit, if he knows how to write
right. There is no gainsaying the fact that had it
being my dear friend gave a second thought,
betterstil a third to it, he would have overcome and
by now given answers to them, thereby unmasking
the “myth” surrounding it. Or had it mean he put is
pen in motion ab initio, the story by now will be
one of “awe” and bewilderment.


Trailing the questions, Can he write? YES, he can.
If only he had step sided his fears. Fear leads one
to nothing. It draws you back. Drop the fear and
start writing. Write anything “writeable”. Just write.
Are you proficient in grammar? Do you need to be
proficient in grammar before you write? Are you
too big to make mistake? Write! Make the
grammatical blunders! Improvement and
grammatical prowess lies beneath your struggle.


Where will writing lead You? Ignorance, they say,
is truly a disease (chronic one for that matter). Is
Shakespeare your Kinsman? How come you know
of his name and works? He was a great writer to
reckon with. He gained notoriety and attained a
lofty status. With his consistency came fortune and fame. Writing will lead you to joy, fame, fortune
and wealth.

Do I have a mentor? Is mentorship a
yardstick for an apprentice’s success?? No, it
isn’t. Hardwork they say pays. Work hard, write
hard, and develop the passion to write. Who is
Shakespeare’s Mentor? Known do I know. Will you
scale through?? Yes, you will. Put in more effort,
start writing, write, though it is daunting and at
times boring but write. Fame and wealth will trace
you. Be the world most prolific writer. You can and
will make it, if only u retrace your steps.

Writing will take one a long way. Have you paused to ask yourself, Must I be reading other persons write up
always? Are there Super-human? Write so that
others will read, shower praises and exclaim in
“awe” your proficiency in writing. It is your right to
write. Convey your thought. Albert Einstein wrote
aptly on all fields, we only know of that through his
writings. He so much believed in his ink that he
will stamp every of his thought with it. Be a better
Einstein today.


Finally, Woe! Betide my friend, the dream writer!
For, he will continue to rejoice in fantasy. I am a
dream writer, mine being on the other side of the
coin, envisaging a future of fortune, fame and
wealth for I have started writing and I will write,
write until I write right. For if you’re ready to learn
the craft of writing, nobody can stop you. If you
aren’t interested in writing, nobody can help you. I
am much ready.
