Chimamanda Adichie: "i Usually Cry While Writing" by sandra123: 1:04pm On Jan 24, 2011
Chimamanda Adichie during a recent interview,

“Writing a novel is an emotionally exhausting experience, when writing about the Biafran it’s very normal to fall into despair. Writing is a process of recalling history, I usually cry while writing.”Her face lights up when talking about young writers in Nigeria, “People in Nigeria are writing a lot of fiction, non-fiction, there’s lot of writing going on and a lot more publishing going on, it’s all very exciting.”

“Being a female writer comes with a lot of baggage but it doesn’t make me stop, I want to challenge those assumption- a small girl can write a political history,” she says with a fiercely intelligent look in her eyes."
