Reactions As Writer Buchi Deactivates Social Media Accounts

A popular writer on Nigeria's social media sphere, Solomon Buchi, has deactivated his social media pages after being bashed online for begging. Image
Screenshots of chats from years ago in which he solicited money were shared online after he advised men not to date 'broke' girls.

Reactions to the incident have been trending, with some Nigerians on Twitter bashing him even further for his feminist
writings and revealing everything about his life on social media.

Not feeling sorry for Buchi because of his constant support for women, a tweep, #DiKachii said ‘’So Mr Solomon Buchi deactivated his account? I do not feel sorry for him he should have heeded the old warning like

So we are now 172 days into a #GenocideOfUkrainians What keeps you going and dedicated, what do you do to recharge, what spirit animates you? What is something on your bucket list? Four really complex questions I will try to answer about myself. First, I made a promise to use my
ability to write to tag my leaders @JohnBoozman @SenTomCotton @RepFrenchHill every day to let them know I want them to support Ukraine. It is my biggest gift to Ukraine. At this point I think I have written more articles on the war than any journalist outside of Ukraine. It is
an admittedly weird record I never saw myself achieving. At this point though it's pretty self-sustaining. I spend time on twitter listening to different voices, often listening on @MriyaReport to find inspiration for the next day's essay. Which brings up question number

I have no FUCKING CLUE which PUTAINS DE SACRE DE OUCH DE FUCKING HOT OUT taught me to mince oaths en québécoise et Acadien instead of propre langs d’oïl at the MTG table, but somehow that is still considered endearing to Anglophones #mtg #decklist #amWriting

‘Baymax!’ Is Just A Bunch Of Patronizing Public Service Announcements😴

Woke as it is brain-dead
‘Baymax!’ has all the subtlety of a low B-episode of Captain Planet & storytelling as deep as an evaporated puddle 🫧
thefederalist.com/2022/07/11/bay… @FDRLST #baymax #disney #mcu #marvel #rt
Disney doesn't seem to know its audience & lets progressive platitudes blind itself to releasing expensive shows that are only so-so

W/ some the wokeness turns them off immediately, but there isnt a lot here for progressives either
thefederalist.com/2022/07/11/bay… #tv #film #filmtwitter
For example, the infamous shopping scene in Baymax! it doesn't make much sense

An all-knowing robot needs help from a bunch of Grown men. In the feminine hygiene aisle

Discussing their favorite brand of tampons, as we all know men are wont to do…🙄

In the past 6 weeks, I have read over 2000 pages and provided over 100 pages of feedback on pilots, features & shorts.

Within the writing itself, here are the 9 most common issues I saw -

#screenwriting #screenwriter #writing #writingtips #WritingCommunity #screenplay #teleplay
#1/9: USING BLAND VERBS

Looks, walks, laughs, smiles, enters, exits, leaves - these are all bland verbs that don’t tell us anything about the character.

Instead, use: glances, peers, strides, ambles, giggles, cackles etc

#screenwriter #WritingCommunity #screenwriting
#2/9: PITCH & PLOT THAT DON’T MATCH UP

If you set your plot, stakes, antag & protag up well in the logline, don’t spend most of the narrative to get to that point

It feels like a bait and switch and will make people put it down

Sitting in the cramped high school library I sat a table chicken scratching a script outline for a Western style video game.

Hampsterdance plays endlessly on loop as a bunch of freshman giggle uncontrollably at the classic meme.
The principle big bellies up to my desk and asks me to explain what I was doing.

I tell him, “I’ve got this cool idea for a video game. These rough sketches are storyboarding the major plot points… I think there’s room for deeper storytelling in video games.”

So, I got into a LONG!!! talk with a reader/friend of mine about the world of publishing. Now, I'm not an expert, but staring down the release of my 6th book (holy shit, 6th?!), I have to reflect on a few realities of publication & open a dialogue with the #WritingCommunity
1/
A bit of background: I've been writing since 2006. I self-pub'd my first book in 2009, and continued with self-pub ever since. This was just before self-publication became vogue. And it was a conscious choice - and it was also how I learned what I know. The hard way.

2/
My friend said, "Getting an agent is like winning the lottery". This isn't wrong.
I tried to query, and was shot down every. single. time.
This isn't unusual. In fact, every #writer know that when you're #querying, this is par for the course.

- "A Warning to the Hollow Men" -

In the cool shade of evening I saw them -
The Hollow Men.
They sloughed their skin and spineless
danced in the shadows that no one saw.

1/8
They were already dead though they live.
They were starving despite feasting.
Victims of their own design, they played
the very hand they had dealt themselves.

2/8
And who can awaken the Hollow Men?
Sound the alarm! Fire! Fire!
Can they hear us with a head full of straw
and a heart full of law?

लाॅक डाऊनच्या अगोदरची एक घटना अशीच अंतर्मुख करणारी. आमच्या ओळखीतला महेश नावाचा एक तरूण ,राममंदिरा समोर त्याच घर होतं. पहाटे साडेचार-पाच पासूनच लोक मंदिरात यायला लागायचे. 1/1
एक दिवस महेश उठून पाहतो तर काय, रस्त्यावर उभ्या असलेल्या त्याच्या गाडीला मागुन कोणीतरी जोरदार धडक दिलेली.
चडफडत महेश गाडीजवळ गेला, नक्की किती नुकसान झालंय ते बघायला तर काचेवर अडकवलेली एक चिठ्ठी दिसली.1/2
त्यावर एक नाव आणि फोननंबर लिहिलेला होता आणि फोन करण्यास सांगितले होते. महेश घाबरला.
बिचकतच त्याने त्या नंबरवर फोन लावला. पलीकडचा माणूस म्हणाला, ‘‘मी वाटच पाहत होतो तुमच्या फोनची.तुमच्या गाडीला धडक देणारा मीच.1/3

1. #Writer #IndieWriter folks out there: I need some urgent practical advice for my first "hybrid" book (institutional and indie at the same time). I'm looking for:
- ebook formatting resources
- a community of fellow writers

This book is extremely important.
2. I got some advice from professional book designers recommending @ScrivenerApp . Their sub-title is not very encouraging: "all you need to craft your first draft". It's not a draft and if it were, it would be my thousandth one. Anybody with experience with that?
3. They also strongly discouraged me to use MSword templates. Yeah, I remember I used it once long ago - it can mess up the text big time.

There are #formatting guidelines out there and basically you can just apply them to the last version of the edited text.

Another movie portraying soft conversions and showing that xistians & xistianity is part of our Indian and #Telugu culture. Pathetic people. Don't understand how could @arkamediaworks produce such movie. @netflix is at it again. Ban #umamaheswaraUgraRoopasya ImageImageImageImage
#Tollywood is headed into the same path of #Kollywood. #Evangelists are taking over the industry. @KTRTRS Should try to protect our #Hindu culture. This is not secularism, this is poisoning people's minds @ExSecular @KarunaGopal1 @yessirtns @ShivaShakthiOrg @noconversion

1/ Self publishing vs other options.

Let's get one thing out of the way.

You should publish once with a mainstream publisher. Get it out of the system. You should sell a title on Amazon. Make it to your genre, subject top 10 list. Even hit the numero uno spot for a day.
2/ But once you are done, you are done.

It doesn't matter who your publisher, distributor or book seller is. In the end you, the author, sells the book.

You create the hype, you generate the traffic, you direct the buyers.

Amazon doesn't get people to your book, you do
3/ So if you are writing the book, editing it, marketing it, promoting it, how much of the book proceeds do you get?

Do you get to talk or see or engage with your customers? Do you even know who they are?

With main stream publishing, no. There is no data, real time or otherwise
