Writers must be skillful to attract readers' interest- Author


By Opeyemi Daniel, Oluwasheun Fashakin

An Ilorin based author and human development enthusiast, Oluwatobi Olarinde has reacted to the poor reading culture of Nigerians, saying that some of the authors in the country need to think outside the box and come up with new things to attract readers interests.

Olarinde made this known while speaking at the launching of his new book titled, "Visualizing the Concept of being me" said the youths of today are always being engulfed with social media and not seeing it necessary to read unlike the past when reading was the habit of many.

He called on Nigerian authors to be dynamic, creative and skillful with their writeups by making use of diagrams to interpret the message they are passing, charging them to make their books attractive, noting that, this is one of the way people could go back to the libraries.

"Authors can just be more realistic in writing and come up with contents that people can relate with. It is not about the big volume of books being put out but really about the content we have inside.

"Pictures send understanding messages when used to illustrate points, stressing that readers will feel comfortable while reading with colorful pictures to help during  relaxation and make them enjoy the book" he said.

He said as for him, he was motivated to writing because he is so passionate about human development, "I really do like to see people progress and I just want everyone in all areas of life to ensure they are doing their best. It is very important to have ideas and turn them into big realities, that is exactly my aim.
