Calling on younger Nigerian writers

Regardless of Nigeria being a rustic blessed with quite a few younger writers, there are some issues very unbecoming which have been obstructing the tradition of efficient writing, thereby spoiling its freshness, simplicity and dexterousness.That’s, avoidance of criticism and speeding to get revealed. 
In writing there’s one thing known as “the artwork of criticism” the place a artistic work is criticised, thereby making it devoid of verbosity and complexity. In reality, it’s not restricted to the sector of writing alone, however, within the generality of life. And, one thing nauseating to be mentioned right here is that, many younger writers, within the Nigeria of our right now, appear to be writing to get eulogies on media, not with progressive intentions. You’d see a younger author working helter-skelter from criticism, like somebody being chased by a monster. 
How would you count on such a author to develop into one thing in writing? How would he affect on the society? It’s excessive time we the younger writers knew that till we warmly embrace criticism, the real progress we’ve been craving in writing won’t ever be attained. It’s one thing open; one thing irrevocable and indeniable. 
Roy T. Bannet says don’t let vanity go to your head and despair to your coronary heart; don’t let compliments go to your head and criticisms to your coronary heart; don’t let success go to your head and failure to your coronary heart. 
Pricey younger Nigerian writers, if you do not need to be immensely criticised, merely do the needful. That’s, learn voraciously earlier than you write. Don’t rush to get revealed, for it doesn’t assist one to do issues higher, typically in life. Learn, learn and reread earlier than you write, and also you’ll definitely provide you with a grasp piece.
