Why: To further the dreams of literary students to become monetized writers for magazines, books and articles. Having worked with the inspired minds of young Nigerian Students, and what they lack in physical tools, they more than make up in determination, motivation and heart. We know that these qualities alone cannot get the job done. Having the necessary tools to produce will bring these students the results desired. Many work from cell phones with short data memory and weak signals making it difficult to stay online for the duration of time needed.
Dance With Your Pen
Their minds are porous like a sponge, open and ready to absorb knowledge and feed the gray matter covering the brain. They take their first steps toward the anchor, that has kept them protected and guided. These young impressionable minds, consuming and learning from the time they were born, and as they grow older, another world presented to them, one less free, less fair, and more controlling. Now able to discern what is right and what is wrong. They explore this new world on venues, television screens, books, peer interactions, boss-employee, and their thoughts in silence.
Legacies are left, and life experiences shared, heartaches give warning signs and chaos is to be quelled. On inked pages the words are formed, designed to grab and hold firm as their inspirations enter the psyche and these minds imagine how to solve the world’s problems.
The leaves fall from the trees, getting swept into the wind, twirling to the sound of musical notes, dancing with their pens.

What do your senses have to do with your writing?
You walk into your favorite surf and turf, and out of the many restaurants, you decide on this one. Why? Is it because of the smiling, congenial greeting from the staff, the romantic ambiance it serves up, as soon as you walk through the doors. There are red track lighting along the walls, calling out to the blues and yellows in the ceilings, hosted by the white lights, making it easy to read the menu and see others sitting parsley throughout. The seating is soft leather, with high backs for privacy. The dining tables are draped in white linen, with a medium gold border around the bottom, shimmers and catching your attention.
A lighted candle placed in the middle of the table, and though under a crystalized cover, its light bouncing in iridescent flickers, you can feel the warmth. The aromas escaping the kitchen are permeating the air. Each item has its individual scent and singularly attaches itself to your noise. You smell the juicy medium rare prime rib, the blackened salmon, the toasted breads, fresh green salads, the soups, and the flaming baked Alaska.
It’s called sensory perception. The magic that grabs and holds on to your audience as you take them on an imaginary journey. An event they can smell, see, feel, taste and hear. In 3-D, the words create scenes, looping, and the reader becomes one with story-showing, instead of storytelling.
" The senses provide a physical world for our writing as well as a palette for rich imagery and language. It's through the five senses that we ground our writing in the concrete --- the sight, sound, feel and taste of it. Moving out of our heads and into our bodies." ~ A Writer's Book Of Days." ~ Author Judy Reeves

When in my creative zone, I need a reminder to get up and move. When I am enthralled reading a good book, I need a reminder to get up and move.
Writers and readers have to exercise on a daily basis because of our sedimentary lifestyles, weight will accumulate faster than you think and your productivity, as well, as creativity will suffer.
1. Remind yourselves to drink plenty of water.
2. Eat light: salads, nuts, fruit slices, etc.
3. Intermittent fasting
4. Get up and move
