Fiction, finally.

Hello friends, How are you all doing? I’ve had a very good day today, thank God! I’ve been really productive, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work. I don’t take it for granted that I’m getting an education. 😀 I just read this incredible story in a devotional that my friend sends to me. The devotional is called The Daily Encourager. They have great devotions, and a lot of very good writers. I did not write this story, I got it in my inbox and decided to share.

I’m praying earnestly to God for healing and restoration, and I feel led to update my blog despite how I feel because this blog is a covenant- and a covenant is conditional and binding. Hence, for now, please enjoy my final paper in my African Lit class. I wrote my own continuation/ story inspired by Chimmamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun.  Please pardon any typos, I haven’t found the courage to edit yet. Alheri Egor-Egbe African Literature Final Paper   Where were you while we died?   Richard had stayed up too late at his study table. He rewrote sentences several times, taking out idioms, inserting igbo proverbs in place of simple words, and recreating his dialogue in Nsukka Igbo, because the Abba Igbo he had used previously was too watered.
