BACK TO BASE (2)
Finally back in Lagos. Got to Lagos and went past the Ikorodu turning before remembering the third mainland is likely closed to traffic going towards Victoria Island. Well, I pushed on with the decision to take my chances – got to the bridge and of course there was a diversion there. Had to go round and round and finally ended up on Ikorodu road an hour or so later. Probably spent about 4 hours from Ibadan to the house in Lagos. I suspect the trip would have been shorter if I had taken Lekki-Epe route (like I did going to Ibadan on Saturday afternoon).
Some places in Ibadan now hold poignant memories for me – don’t ask where.
Plenty of “office work” waiting for me. Done some, but I am tired. Maybe I will go to bed early (10PM) and wake up early and see if I can cover some of the outstanding stuff.
Actually, why am I putting all these mundane stuff up? I have read in several places that the secret to writing is to write as much as possible. What you write doesn’t really matter: just write.
What else happened today. I think I have the beginning of a story – thought it up in the car on the way to Lagos – I have the end more or less as well – maybe the whole thing – I just need to stop being lazy and set it down. I think the title will be “The Scent” – but I may change it before I am done with it. It’s a “short” story.
Last couple of days have been very interesting – went to Eruwa yesterday. Need some serious cash now. And when I say serious, I mean cash you can’t put in your handbag or your man-purse 🙂
Have a great day y’all! And please do stop by again. Feel free to go through the old stuff. I am sure you will find plenty to read – and they are not too long – so I think I can keep your attention for some minutes and make you forget that stuff on your mind for a while. Also, feel free to share the website address with friends. The increase in traffic is welcome and appreciated!
Have a great week. When we meet, we will smile.
