…wait for it…..wait for it… it was…m…
Okay, lol, it wasn’t me.
The writer competition finally came to an end last week, but my journey in the competition ended a week earlier after round 3 (I know, right). Still, it was fun as I expected it would be.
So, after 4 wonderful weeks of good writing, the prestigious title of The Writer was claimed by SuyiDavies Okungbowa (@IAmSuyiDavies), but he was not alone in his victory; Ekari Mbvundula (@EkariWrites) clinched the spot of the first runner-up and Akpan-Nya Alexandra (@Pestilexi) came in hot as the second runner-up. Hearty Congratulations to them!
It would be remiss of me if I did not recognize the other eight writing gladiators who fought the good fight: Alithnayn Abdulkareem, Sibbyl Whyte, Osaretin, Abidemi Abudu, Osinachi, Ifeanyichukwu, Ayotemide Akin-Onitolo, and Ezinne Zara; thanks for being good competition. 12 out of 3000 writers – as we say in these parts – is not beans, so continue to write and continue to grow.
And of course, I must thank our hosts, The Naked Convos, and our Judges Tendai Huchu, Titi Oyinsan, and Lauri Kubuitsile for the platform and their feedback. I know I have come out of this competition a little better than how I went in, and that is the real goal at the end of the day: to be better than the day before.
Now that this is done, I have to get back to the other projects that were put on hold, but in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing a few of the lessons I learnt during the competition.
For now, I bid you good night (or morning, or afternoon 🙂 )
Till next time….
