Imaginative or fictitious writing is one of the most creative forms of entertainment. The end product is usually books, movies, stage plays, music and other allied end products. If you ask an average follower of Nollywood he or she will gladly tell you that one aspect most Nollywood movies need to improve on is their stories.
To help improve the quality of stories or literary aspect of entertainment such as Nollywood, music and other industries, Mr. Godwin Oguzie, former employee of United Nations has founded a platform for creative writers, www.nextscenes.com.
Next Scenes is a platform that benefit writers who wants to have their stories completed or those who would be interested in making contributions to a story already started or those who need a practical platform to learn how to write.
Mr. Oguzie who narrated, at the launch of the website recounted how he started a creative write-up so passionately, with so much determination to get it finished, only to get to a stage of his story and found he was stuck and then he realized there will be so many other creative and even talented writers battling with writer’s block,to this end, he decided to create this website where several promising writers can pool their efforts together to complete a story and also get paid for these efforts.
Mr Oguzie further stated that “Nollywood is already doing well, but we believe if we create a platform where people can contribute stories and offer ideas, the quality of stories in Nollywood and other entertainment contents can be improved upon. It is a popular saying that two heads are better than one.”
With Next Scenes, writing is made easier with several minds contributing to stories on different forums which includes; Drama, Romance, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Action, History, Crime, Thriller and Children’s Forum. With such wide range of categories, writers can choose their forte and not get worried about being unable to finish their stories. The best stories make their way to becoming blockbuster movies or bestselling novels with due acknowledgment given to not just the writer but also the contributors of these stories.
If the quality of what’s happening, people joining and creative stories already on the platform www.nextscenes.com, then Nollywood is in for a jolly good ride.
