Q. Tell me something about this world that you admire.

I really admire nature, God’s masterpiece! The beauty, siren and bliss it encompasses. The view always puts a smile on my face and the interconnection between its aesthetics, its worth in medicine, nutrition and Art is mind blowing.

Q. What is your favorite form of creativity?

Writing! It has always been writing. writing brings me this joy, peace of mind and a sense of relaxation.

Grace’s Questions!

  1. If you had to move to another place, where would you go? A change of environment has always spiked up my inspiration, fueling my writing prowess. Therefore; if I must move, I would choose a place with a great view and variety of personalities, enough to spice up my field of imagination. In my country, Nigeria, I will choose Lagos State. For a place outside Nigeria, I will go for Paris (I love that city).
  2. If you met your future self, what would you ask? “Dera my dear, how do you feel about your passion: “writing”, and where it has placed you in the world; are you proud of me?”
  3. What is the best advice you have received? “Follow your passion! You have all it takes to succeed wherever it leads you”.
  4. who has had the biggest influence in your life? God! A host of the decisions I have made in my life were inspired by Him. The very instruction and inspiration to start both writing and blogging came from Him and He has so far been faithful.

Grace’s questions

  1. What is your proudest accomplishment? The books and short stories I have written through which I can positively impact my readers.
  2. What makes you laugh the most? Happy moments with loved ones.
  3. If you met you, would you want to be your friend and why? Sure, I would love to. I love myself because I am not only kind and considerate but equally a good influence on the lives around me.
  4. What do you like most about yourself? I am passion driven.
  5. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? I get easily bored especially when it comes to food, so eating one meal for a lifetime is most unlikely for me. But if I must, I will go for yam (fried, boiled, portage, roasted…however it is made!)
  6. If you can be anyone else in the world, who would you be or would you be yourself? (Please explain). If I get a chance to choose, I would still choose myself. I love myself for who I am. I am a unique piece and I know how valuable a person I am.

  10. If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be? Travel to Paris and take pictures of all the nice places.
  11. Would you say you are resentful or can you let go of things easily? It is not clear cut because sometimes it takes a while to digest and get accustomed to whatever development I see myself in but no, I am not resentful.
