“Evolving A Bestseller”


-Don’t be a writer – Be writing”
– William Faulkner


A great story evolves before gaining acceptance and then recognition.

Coming up with a somewhat superbly intriguing piece sometimes require a wild imagination.
At least an origination of the idea.
A vision, possibly.
A thought process that not only you can see and identify with.

It’s ideal that your story have a subject, that foundation is key and it’s on it the story structure is laid.
That subject keeps you focused.
Thus giving a direction to your destination.

The destination is the alleyway or labyrinth through which you navigate your story, that is.

However, it is not compulsory that every story must have a conclusion.

Reason you have many arisen and reawakened stories, a part 2 or to be continued editions.


The genre; action packed, dramatic, suspense, fantasy, thriller or romance is up to you.

Real or fictitious is also a choice you decide yourself.

Keeping it simple is equally important. No unnecessary frills.
Simple is the new sexy you know.

“Life is a STORY – Make yours a BESTSELLER”

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Write !

    Wow O’Shine I loved your beautiful post and your ending was awesome. Life is really a story for each and everyone and are we are not our bestsellers. And yes it is so true that an untold story is always inside us but it can never be told. Lovely.

    A very balanced post…..makes one think. Good one 👍🏽👍🏽
    I once heard someone say….there’s no greater satisfaction, but to know that when you die, you die empty….having shared all, impacted lives and poured all your knowledge into someone else’s.
