On Saturday, my son Terrence was sick-thanks for the quick-recovery-mesages- and in bid not to think about his sickness, I decided to play catch up with Eunniah.
She is an Electrical Engineer based in Malindi. Eunniah reads alot, dresses to kill, writes well and has a killer-smile!
Here is our talk about her challenge,please follow her journey on her blog: https://mbabazi465.wordpress.com/day-18-disrespecting-parents
Rumona: Why did you start the 30 day blog challenge?
Eunniah: Hello there
Eunniah: First, I wanted something to keep me on toes. But most importantly, I wanted to write wholly about me. And it gave me just that.
Rumona: So after the 30 days? You stop writing?
Eunniah: No. I don’t stop. I continue to write. Maybe about me. Maybe about other people. Maybe about other things.
Rumona: So what time do you write? Like do you have a special time to do it?
Eunniah: I just squeeze an hour between my schedule to type the whole thing out. I usually scribble small notes about the topic on my notebook as I go about my activities. Then use the one hour to type it out, edit and post.
Rumona: Any warm hearting comment from your avid reader so far?
Eunniah: Heart warming? I am not sure about that. Each piece receives different reactions. But the ones I love, are the ones who say they derive strength and inspiration from some of the pieces.
Rumona: Okay, so would you recommend the challenge to any one who blogs or writes?
Eunniah: I would. But only of one is ready to handle the pressure that comes with writing on a daily basis, on some of the most not-so-comfortable topics.
Rumona: Wow, I thought it’s an easy ride. Mind telling about the pressure that comes with writing on a daily basis?
Eunniah: Well, sometimes you might have such a busy day that finding just an hour seems impossible. Or you are just not in the right mood to write. Or the day’s topic isn’t striking any of your thoughts. Or you write, but then feel like the whole piece is crappy.
Rumona: What do you hope to achieve after the 30 day writing challenge?
Eunniah: When I started, I only wanted the thrill. But right now, I hope that by the end of it, I will have learnt more about the things that lie unsaid within me. And how to handle negative criticism, because there is quite a lot of that
Rumona: And how was Valentine? 😅😅
Eunniah: I was down with cramps…haha
Rumona: 😅😅😅. Thanks Eunniah this ‘ambush’ of a conversation has been great!
Eunniah: Hahaha. You are one of the few intellectual minds I admire. It is a pleasure😀
Rumona: Now this is what I call heartwarming ❤❤
Eunniah: You are welcome.
