10 Things you didn’t know about Kenikodjo

  1. I never know how a story will end when I start it.
  2. Sometimes I have the end figured- with no idea about how the story builds up to that climax.
  3. I had never written a story before my first blog post (wrote a play once for my university choir though).
  4. I write all my blog posts and manage the Facebook page for the blog from my phone.
  5. Once I decide on the content of a story, I can’t focus on anything else until I have finished writing it.
  6. The names for the characters just come to me when I write (and sometimes I name them after my friends to make them feel special 😀 )
  7. Sometimes I get upset with the behaviour of some of the characters- like Abeiku in Three is a crowd. (Yes, I do know I created them)
  8. I would never have started this blog if it wasn’t for my Facebook friends.
  9. I get surprised at the kind of people that read the stories- people from all walks of life, even Trinidad and Tobago (I don’t know anybody there!)
  10. I do a little dance in my heart anytime I see you share a link to one of the stories, leave a comment, like a post, etc. (I have the most amazing readers)

  4. Just came across “Don’t judge me” pt.1 shared by Manasseh (another writer I follow because of his stories, my favorite being his trip to Obamalamd..lol) on his Facebook page, quickly read it and was thinking I hope there is a pt. 2 somewhere. I of course dashed over to your blog site and found it…Yay!! Keep it it up!!!
