I come from the slopes of Mt Kenya. Kirinyaga is where I was born and raised by my parents. I have two siblings and am the second born. I went to Primary school, finished, went to high school and finished then went to campus and finished. Though my mama still insists I continue reading until I see the ‘No education ahead’ sign.
What I know is I love sleep. Sleep and I are one. It never disappoints. If you have read any of my posts, you will realize how close we are. Only that sometimes it never wants to leave me alone even after my alarm rings. Not until I snooze it like five times.
People ask me where my website name came from. KithyLouise is my name. Kithy is a shortform to my second name. I cannot even write it here because it’s so long. Louise is from my first name Loise only that I added a U because it looked more fancy.
I work somewhere in Westlands and it is always a motivation seeing these big houses and offices and am there wishing that one day I will own such a big building. Dear God, please hear my prayer. I am a serious person and not so talkative. A very serious lady that one day a friend of mine once told me to always smile when we are together because apparently my serious face freaks her out. Hmm..you can imagine!
Ok, here is the thing, as serious as I can be, I am a fun person to hang out with. By hanging out I don’t mean going to a club and drinking ourselves out. No. Take me out for ice cream or movies and I will be the best person around. I think am just too old to go clubbing to dance and shake. Uhmm, maybe just sitting and watching others. Few years back, I didn’t know getting old is real. Right now it’s all happening right in front of my eyes. I can’t stop time. I can’t stop getting old. How I wish I would stop time.
I am at a funny stage in my life right now. Confused on what I want to do with my life and to also ensure that the decisions I make in the long run will not only make my life worth living but also make me move a notch higher than I am. Truth be told, I fear midlife crisis.
I am also a young talent promoter in music, film and fashion. A music judge at the Next Rated Superstar music eliminations. Promoting young talent has never felt this good. It’s like this is what I was born to do (kujichocha nayo!). The winners get to go to Nigeria and get a recording deal with the most known musicians from Nigeria. Seriously, these are the times I wish I knew how to sing.
I have experienced writers’ block severally. This is when I want to write something and nothing comes to my mind. Basically, my mind just gets blank and I cannot think of anything however much I want to share something with my readers. Sometimes it drains me and makes me feel bad. Yeah, it happens to writers all the time!
I read a lot of blogs especially the ones on the creative writing category. My only problem is I rarely read novels or books. Not that I do not like reading the books, only that when I start, I never finish reading and so opt to go for reading blogs. There is this novel I bought sometime back and I am not yet even halfway! Am not even sure whether I will ever finish it.
I am always listening to music when am writing something because it helps me concentrate more and draws me away from the real world for sometime. Writing heals me. I can be having a bad day and when I draft something, I will be feeling much better. I love been creative. I love writing and I am currently working on a romantic novella and hope to be done soon.
I also shared something on my Facebook page saying I will be welcoming anyone who thinks can write and want to share with the readers something. Continue reaching me through my Facebook page KithyLouise. You can like and share the page to friends. My website will be used to promote local talent in writing so am calling out to anyone who wants to share an article or posts to the readers to get to me.
I have also been trying to write weekly but get so caught up in activities. But I will keep trying to get something for my readers….
Thanks for passing by…
