Wow. I think Mirror was my most challenging novel- even more challenging than Stakes: Change of Hearts. Would you believe if I told you I almost stopped Mirror on the second batch? I wanted to cancel it and start writing something else (Maybe Routine love OR Footsteps in the dark) I got so discouraged by Faeda (unknowingly to her). I was like what have me gotten myself into? How am I going to let people understand this plot without sounding cheesy. Then, I met a reader who was excited about the whole story and was just telling me- yeah, she was telling me about Mirror- about it. I found out she was actually enjoying it but she was getting a lot of things wrong. Hence, the explanation along the way. I must admit I was tempted to have both of them (Fola and Nneka) as twins but it was just a passing fancy, nothing rooted. 😉 I got discouraged a second time and was actually panicking.. I think around when they first started becoming friends. I was like Habiba! What have you gotten yourself into? How do I keep up with you guys’ expectations especially after Simi’s resolve? I must say I am GLAD mirror is over and didn’t do so badly. Lol. It’s hard tying each part of the story in. Please, please, please of you have any doubts as things should go, please call me out in the comment section or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will explain any part to you.
I want to address an issue- that’s when I’m late in posting which is usually by a few days if at all (*sideeyes*) I am not doing it deliberately. It’s either I am too busy or I am having a dry spell- yeah, I am human- lmao. Piscean, take note! Lmao. Anyways, thanks guys for coming with me through this amazing and challenging journey. I doff my hat for una. #wehdonesir #wehdonemah
Routine love is coming up by 11pm today by God’s grace and Mirror starts getting trashed. ❤ ❤ ❤
