Meet Uzoma Uponi, a busy mother of four from Nigeria who lives in Calgary, Canada. A two-week break in 2008 allowed her to indulge in one of her favourite activities, writing, which culminated in the Christian-lit novel Colourblind, which she self-published three months later.
Uzoma Uponi had it all carefully planned.
The Calgary-based, Nigerian-born writer was going to adhere to a long-term, and unusually practical, schedule when it came to her writing career. When inspiration would strike, she would jot down the random idea, short-story outline or whatever else might be percolating in her imagination. She would study books she loved – sometimes chapter by chapter – to try to determine why they worked.
But Uponi would then file this preparatory work away for a later date.
