Author: Kwazinkosi Ndlovu
Kwazinkosi Ndlovu is a 25 years old, a self-published author. He was born and raised in Hillbrow/ Berea before relocating to Soweto. He began writing in his first year while studying at the University of Johannesburg as just a hobby. Something to do in his spare time and flex his creativity muscles.
He used to write short think pieces, where he would express his thoughts and just vent about whatever that was bothering him at the time. Surprisingly his friends enjoyed his short pieces of writing, they sparked conversations and they kept asking him to write more.
In his second year, he decided to try and challenge himself by writing something more than just a short think piece but a full-on story in the form of a blog. ” I decided to write about what I knew at the time and I wrote a story titled ‘ don’t go to uni ‘ which was a story about a boy and his friends living life in their first year of University this time around it was not just my friends who loved my writing but even strangers on the internet”. He added
In his third and final year he wrote a novella titled ‘ Such a beautiful mess which is a romance novella that follows two lovers as they tell their story from a two people perspective. The story ends with both of them dying at the end which was a teary ending for many readers. In the same year during the hard lockdown, he again wrote another novella titled Love, Heartbreak and vibes which was about the dating life of a high school boy.
The more he wrote the more he fell in love with it, until he was convinced this was what he was meant to be doing with his life, telling stories. Once he decided writing was his true passion, he began writing more and more about everything his brain could think of and creating endless stories. He also continue to blog regularly.
Last year as he was doing internship, he had an idea to write a fantasy novel, as a way to tell a complicated larger storyline and combine his love for fantasy and history. This was again also another challenge for his writing journey as he had never attempted something so large. As he wrote his novel, he made the decision to quit his internship to pursue to one career and he truly love which is writing. ” I self-published my novel titled ‘ The Coven: Blood of Sitayi’ and I am now in the process of trying to become a full-fledged novelist and writer”.
