Writing is very refreshing...

I love it so much because I really get lost in my head, busy concocting words, plotting, building up my own characters and shaping them how I see fit, imagining various scenes and giving it a life of its own until it’s well put together to make sense. Writing simply put is magic. Just like when I read which I love doing, it’s a time to reflect and open my mind to various instances, which is why writing is my favourite way of communicating.

Welcome To My Website

Hello, I’m Lara Tommy Kareem. I have many more names but these will do. I’m a twenty-something, upcoming author, literary enthusiast & blogger. I run a number of websites apart from this one. One is strictly my Literary Blog, which brought forth my online nickname Naija Book Bae where I review and talk all things books 95% of the time. Bookish Species, is an online society for appreciating the Literary community and my way of enhancing it. Finally, this website is all about me, my write-ups, literary works (published & unpublished) and my writing process.
