from little, TO BIG!

Sometimes we look at people and admire how they’re so good at what they do. We start wishing we were as good as them or some even start envying them. But we forget that they all started from a first step. They went through the hardwork, trials and failures before they got to where they are today. Rather than wishing we were like them or envying them, we should take our own first steps and work towards what we want. People like this are there to be a guide, a mentor or a role model to young ones; not for us to steal their lives or waste time envying them. It’s not going to be easy, I’ll tell you that. But one thing I always like to remind myself and my friends is that, “you’ll never know, until you try!”

Starting this blog has been a big step for me in doing one of the things I admire(that is, writing). From what I can remember from my young self, my first step was making paper story books to sell for fake money in my class at school. I was in primary five then and I liked reading short stories and comprehension passages, not the boring and long ones though. With help from my close friends, I wrote short stories down on papers, stapled them together and gave them prices. For the long ones, my friends would say it should be expensive that we couldn’t waste our energy and get little money. So we sold our stories, collected fake money and had fun writing them. I still remember the name of my best customer, her name was Kosiso. She had a cute little face and loved to read. I always told her of the new available books in store.

After primary school, I stopped writing if I remember well. Till around Grade 8 I think, before I started again. This was the second step I took. With help from about 4 girls, I started writing a story, titled “The Triplets.” The main characters were: Kira, Kiara and Kitara. It was a really cliché drama, but we had fun bringing ideas together and writing our wonderful book that had about 4 parts. The name of our ‘publishing industry’ was FONZY. We formed that using some letters from each of our names. Our second book was titled ‘Vivian’ it was a prose this time but we never finished it. Being the little children we were then(12years or so) we basically lost interest in continuing it. If you want to read our first book, ‘The Triplets’ feel free to let me know.

After then, I usually wrote short write-ups in pieces of paper about different things or just expressing myself but I never kept any one of them. I forgot about writing and only read books which I found interesting. Until 2018, me being me, just decide to start writing again. I was actually inspired by some of my friends, who made me take up my interest again, without them even being aware. Truly, you can impact people’s lives just by living yours. But this time no stories, just medium or short writings whenever I was bored and was inspired to write about something. This was my third step in writing. I still didn’t keep all my write-ups but I have some with me in some of my random jotters. Writing was now a way of me expressing myself in certain areas I found hard to do verbally. I wrote this write-up below some time ago but I recently spiced it up.


I found it hard to let it all out,

All the hidden emotions behind that smile.
A billion people walk around me,
A million people talk to me,
A thousand people say they’re my friends,
A hundred people say they love me.
Yet among all these,
My heart found no one to confide in.
So I trusted my only hope,
Mr. Paper and Mrs Pen.


Did you like my write-up😁? You did? Awwwn, thank you!😄💜. Later on, I’ll share some of my little write-ups with you all. So I now spent most of my free time reading books and writing. And here we are today on my blog!🌚 Starting it up wasn’t easy, but from little to big, with the help of my friends, who encouraged and inspired me, I finally took my big step.

I’m writing this here to encourage anyone I can, who’s finding it hard to try something new or something that seems big. Don’t fear, don’t think too much on the ‘what ifs’ and don’t limit yourself. Start from little TO BIG! You’ll never know, until you try. “Then, even if your beginnings were modest, your final days will be full of prosperity.”(Job 8:7)

Thank you for taking time to read this and I really hope it wasn’t boring cause I enjoyed every minute of writing it. This post is dedicated to three of my friends who have helped me in more ways than they think. Zizaa, theBuchiguy and my Star. Thank you so much you guys you all are amazing! 💞💞

    1. well, here’s a secret. My friend and I, we’re currently re-writing it right now. The title is: PLAYING THE DILEMMA GAME. Once it’s ready it’ll be available on Wattpad, Inkitt and probably Webnovel. For now part of the old version is available on Inkitt as THREE. You can check some of my “unfinished” books on Wattpad @chocovanille_writere
