WHAT IS THE MAGIC?
From a very young age, one thing I did so well was write. The next was cook!…haha
During Maths class, I might look so disinterestingly at the trigonometries and graphs but when the English Language teacher enters the class, I would be the star!
When others think summary and oral parts of the subject are hard, I would get my teacher’s best mark!- effortlessly.
And when I write essays and articles and letters, he would seize my scripts. Those would be read loudly during his class and everyone would scramble for my script later on to know what the magic was.
This gift was realized in me at a very early age. When I was five years thereabout, I would go to my dad’s library, pick some of his books and start ‘writing’ in them. When I look at those books now, I see from where my ‘ministry’ began and would simply smile in gratitude to the Lord.
As I grew, I remember pickinh used chalks from school and hiding them in my bag. At home, I would move to our tankhouse and start writing on it, both the sensible and the gibberish.
Well, my dad read them all whenever we weren’t watching because after some time, He would usually call me close and give me A4 papers and new pens. He would ask me to start writing.
He told me something one day and I will summarise the whole talk in one sentence- Your gift/talent is the crude oil. The training you receive in line with your gift is the refined oil that will help others and fetch you money and a name!
According to him, it is one thing to have a gift/talent. It is another thing to get the gift properly trained (sharpened).
Because of what he said, I was reassured that I had found my path. When I got to JSS3 and with my JSSCE result, the principal insisted I go to the Science Class. I insisted on going to the Arts Class. I knew I would be exposed to details on writing and it was so. I released three story books before moving to SS 1. And before leaving SS3, a novella was released.
I must appreciate my dad today. If not nothing, this great man was a vessel in God’s Hands for me. He saw it, picked it, appreciated it, trimmed it and trained it!
There is a gift in every man! Parents shouldn’t just look away when their children do things. Some of the children do not even know what gifts and talents are. Help them realize the gifts, encourage them and sponsor the training!
How was my writing skills sharpened further? I went to the university to bag two degrees. A B.sc in Mass Communication and a Masters in Journalism. And they are summarily about what? Writing!
Woah!!! Writing is life!
When I look at the books I wrote just with my gifts and talents, though very interesting, I could see so many flaws that might not be glaring to the readers instantly. But with the refining, trainings and trimmings, it only gets better.
Interestingly, I have been invited to teach writing in several places, hence, raconteurs are being reproduced for the Lord everywhere through one raconteur that found herself and sharpened her rough edges! Halleluyah!
The gift which was deposited in me by the Lord, trimmed and sharpened by seasoned trainers and blessed further by the Lord has produced so many great stories for the Lord! Many are on de-raconteur.com
