Reaping the Mastered Seeds A Confessional letter from the Emperor

Dear fellow country folks
I have been doctored
To learn the ways of man into supporting a cause
Why is it that so many of you guys are so anti-dictators?

Imagine if this state was democratic
I wouldn’t let 1% of my people have all the nation’s wealth.

I wouldn’t afford helping my rich friends like Meta, Rupzzi, Geovani and many more get richer by cutting their taxes
Or Bailing them out when they gamble and lose.

I wouldn’t afford ignoring the needs of the poor for health care and education like I has been doing in the past thirty years.

Look at my media, it currently appear free, but is secretly controlled by Geovan and his family.

My loving government tortures foreign prisoners and political opponents like Lukzzi and Kizz.B.

I have rigged elections what will UN do about it?
I have lied about why I go to war and my troops are doing quite a good Job in foreign countries like Somalia, S. Sudan, D.R Congo and C.A.R. Let alone Nigeria, Burundi and Middle east.

My prisons are filled with one particular political group, and no one complains

I have use the media to scare the people into supporting policies that are against their interests and that’s the definition of freedom and free will

The mastered seed that was planted way back in January of 1986 is readily ripen and yellow and I will harvest it Jointly or single handed.

The Barrel awaits who ever ignores my call
Doctored by His Excellence

My Night Rose (drugs and the angel)

This part of town that l lay my bones to rest in is of no greater good, girls hanging around in skimpy dresses can be seen in every night corner, I have come for an adventure but its a pitiful site, do their parents know where they are? Am attempted to ask this question as I tip-toe slowly from one night corner to another.

“Hiss hiss!
Kasitoma wama jangu (a polite way of calling a customer)
Muzei Jangu”(Old man come)

I peep into her heavenly saucepan stained with the sent of death, for the banana that I carry along is a lot row and ready to be used as a staffing rod “In-zei(Me)?” I answer not aware of the consequence to which she replied yee!(yes)
I reach for her bargain, she pulling her skimpy dress even more, “oyagala chii?(what do you want)” She question me.

“Muherbatiii…
Shorti…
Oba longu…?”

She continues with the interrogation.
Her hands reaching for my banana and another a blunder already terrorizing my back patch
Kasitoma?
she questions me to which I replied “Muhabati” and in no time she pulls sticks of marijuana. “Kasa na budo muzei.” She answers more skimpy dresses approaches
Calling me kasitoma, Kasitoma…

I reach for my shoes pull a coin and there we go
Now I ask for a shorti
“Genda mu lodgi masikini”
Another reply
Pointing towards a lodge
I see no exit and venture into a lodge
Well I book a room
Its a hassol
Used condoms welcomes me
Vampires blood angry bedbugs and mosquitoes welcomes me and the night girl who sold to me marijuana walks in freely with a glass pipe
“Kasitoma?” She calls
Ngu? I respond, now speaking in British English accent undresses before me
“My name is meg, what brings you to this part of town?
To which I answer drugs.
Come on lover boi, you are at the right place here I have three types
Which way is home, where is my manhood gone and high way.
Which of the three are you interested in?”
She continues
Mind rep rooflin I reply
“Ooh I will get you that immediately, its call date rape here, you will have a wonderful time in my part of town.

Well am a poet
A creative writer who also has a sweet test for women with large breast, brown skin and sometime I cannot stand the sight of black skinned girls with naturally untreated hair, those coal like skin makes my blood pressure rise, my head stops working and all that I can visualize is a bucket of KFC served with heavenly delights, well that’s me.

In no time Meg pops back with a brass like tea pot, a small tray, a stove and water, “these will be five dollars are you still interested?” She questions me to which I replied yes with an attitude, I immediately reach for my tour pocket pull five dollars and before long I was already having the time of my life smoking mind rape or what ever the name was.

Meg on the other hand was totally nood, her white teeth dazzled in the night, her breast stunted and as she puffed from the tubes the smoke made her even looked more like an angel and there was no way I was gonna let go of this heavenly beauty, should I just ask for it, nail her on the coach or let her go? Lots of thoughs peer into…

And as though kept a stady floor she knew my intention, buckets of thought came into my mind and just then she moved even closer and as she reached for my manhood which was no more than a dot or should I say a pimple swollen on my bosom, her lifeless hands gave me no comfort and just then I remembered the name of the drug was date Rape.

As the saying goes it’s said tha with date rape tobbacco everything will look ok but you are a total failure and yes its true every thing looked pritty cool but I was a total failure. Even my manhood failed me, that is why I know drugs are not to be messed with, lackey I can read. and write the exact warning says ” cigarette smoking can be harmful to your health, mind rape cured tobacco reduces sexual libido” well that’s what was on the army green packet.

Notes

Kasitoma – customer
Muhabati – Marijuana
Shorti – xxx for a short duration
Longu – Explicit of a long duration

How to become a better writer

How to become a better writer is a must read for every passionate writer out there burning to excellent in his or her art.

1. Read great writers. This may sound obvious, but it has to be said. This is the place to start. If you don’t read great writing, you won’t know how to do it. Everyone starts by learning from the masters, by emulating them, and then through them, you find your own voice. Read a lot. As much as possible. Pay close attention to style and mechanics in addition to content.

2. Write a lot. Try to write every day, or multiple times a day if possible. The more you write, the better you’ll get. Writing is a skill, and like any other skill, you have to practice it to get better. Write stuff for yourself, write for a blog, write for other publications. Write just to write, and have a blast doing it. It gets easier after awhile if you practice a lot.

3. Write down ideas, all the time. Keep a little notebook handy (Nabokov carried around index cards) and write down ideas for stories or articles or novels or characters. Write down snippets of conversation that you hear. Write down plot twists and visual details and fragments of song lyrics or poems that move you. Having these ideas written down helps, because they can inspire you or actually go directly into your writing. I like to keep a list of post ideas for my blog, and I continually add to it.

4. Create a writing ritual. Find a certain time of day when you can write without interruptions, and make it a routine. For me, mornings work best, but others might find lunch or evenings or midnight hours the best. Whatever works for you, make it a must-do thing every single day. Write for at least 30 minutes, but an hour is even better. If you’re a full-time writer, you’ll need to write for several hours a day, as I do. But don’t worry! It helps you get better.

5. Just write. If you’ve got blank paper or a blank screen staring at you, it can be intimidating. You might be tempted to go check your email or get a snack. Well, don’t even think about it, mister. Just start writing. Start typing away — it doesn’t matter what you write — and get the fingers moving. Once you get going, you get in the flow of things, and it gets easier. I like to start out by typing things like my name or a headline or something easy like that, and then the juices start flowing and stuff just pours out of me. But the key is to just get going.

6. Eliminate distractions. Writing does not work well with multi-tasking or background noise. It’s best done in quiet, or with some mellow music playing. Do your writing with a minimal writer like WriteRoom or DarkRoom or Writer, and do it in full-screen. Turn off email or IM notifications, turn off the phone and your cell phone, turn off the TV, and clear off your desk … you can stuff everything in a drawer for now until you have time to sort everything out later … but don’t get into sorting mode now, because it’s writing time! Clear away distractions so you can work without interruption.

7. Plan, then write. This may sound contradictory to the above “just write” tip, but it’s not really. I find it useful to do my planning or pre-writing thinking before I sit down to write. I’ll think about it during my daily run, or walk around for a bit to brainstorm, then write things down and do an outline if necessary. Then, when I’m ready, I can sit down and just crank out the text. The thinking’s already been done. For a great method for planning out a novel, see the Snowflake Method.

8. Experiment. Just because you want to emulate the great writers doesn’t mean you have to be exactly like them. Try out new things. Steal bits from other people. Experiment with your style, your voice, your mechanics, your themes. Try out new words. Invent new words. Experimentalize everything. And see what works, and toss out what doesn’t.

9. Revise. If you really crank out the text, and experiment, and just let things flow, you’ll need to go back over it. Yes, that means you. Many writers hate revising, because it seems like so much work when they’ve already done the writing. But if you want to be a good writer, you need to learn to revise. Because revision is where good writing really is. It separates the mediocre from the great. Go back over everything, looking not only for grammar and spelling mistakes, but for unnecessary words and awkward structures and confusing sentences. Aim for clarity, for strength, for freshness.

10. Be concise. This is best done during the revision process, but you need to edit every sentence and paragraph and remove everything but the essential. A short sentence is preferred over a longer one, and a clear word is preferred over two in jargonese. Compact is powerful.

11. Use powerful sentences. Aim for shorter sentences with strong verbs. Of course, not every sentence should be the same — you need variation — but try to create sentences with oomph. You might find this easier to do in the revision stage, as it might not be something you’re thinking about when you’re pumping out that first draft.

12. Get feedback. You can’t get better in a vacuum. Get someone to read over your stuff — preferably a good writer or editor. Someone who reads a lot, and can give you honest and intelligent feedback. And then listen. Really try to understand the criticism and accept it and use it to improve. Instead of being hurt, thank your editor for helping you get better.

13. Put yourself out there. At some point, you’ll need to let others read your writing. Not just the person who you’re allowing to read it, but the general public. You’ll need to publish your book or short story or poem, or write for a publication. If you’re already doing a blog, that’s good, but if no one reads it, then you need to find a bigger blog and try to submit a guest post. Putting your writing out in the public can be nerve-wracking, but it is a crucial (if painful) part of every writer’s growth. Just do it.

14. Learn to be conversational. Many people write too stiffly. I find that it’s so much better to write like you talk (without all the umms and uhhs). People relate to it better. It’s not an easy task at first, but it’s something to strive for. And that brings up another point — it’s better to break the rules of grammar in order to sound conversational (as I did in the last sentence) than to sound stilted just so you can follow the proper rules. But don’t break the rules of grammar without good reason — know that you’re doing it, and why.

15. Start and end strong. The most important parts of your writing are the beginning and end. Especially the beginning. If you don’t hook your reader in the beginning, they won’t read the rest of your writing. So when you’ve written your first draft, spend some extra time crafting a good beginning. Get them interested and wanting to know more. And when you’re done with that, write a good ending … that will leave them wanting more of your writing.
