My many layers and tones to writing.

I am in the process of writing me second book. My debut was a collection of poetry very much written for myself. I had to release it to reach a me I knew existed but was scared to show people. I released the book to prove a point to myself – the point that I could do anything, I had to be scared of no – one, my need for God, my obsession with love and many other small and huge things that I had struggled to understand. Releasing the book was symbolic of a release taking place deeper inside me.

I had promised myself never to get stuck in a rut. I did not want to conform and only wanted to be involved in anything that was on the track I believed God had set out for me. I wanted to be on the road less traveled and break convention and set records and my first book was me taking an incy wincy step down that road. Now I know I am ready to take on a different type of content and write for completely different reasons to why I began writing in the first place. I originally wrote to connect to myself. Now I am happy that I know myself enough and want to encourage others to get to a deeper level of intimacy and self-revelation. It is an exciting journey…

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
