Random hint for the sight impaired before I get started: You can add the “Read Aloud” to your Chrome browser to listen instead of read. I’m planning on adding audio to more of my posts, but for now, I’m recommending that. (It’s free, and I’m not ashamed to promote free.)…

It’s true. I haven’t done my dishes for days. The sad thing, is, I don’t even have children. I live alone and being busy writing in addition to working about 30–40 hours as a delivery driver is my main reason for neglecting my house duties. After I finish this article, I will do them. I promise.

The rest of this story is on A Life of a Writer, which is one of my Medium publications. I didn’t realize I made this version live, but that’s okay. If you want to see the rest of this article, you know where to find it. Read more >>

I’m going to write more on this later, but for now, this is my update. I just cannot believe how many mistakes I have in this document I’m preparing. Really? Am I that bad of a writer (a rhetorical statement made out of frustration that I don’t think deserves a…

This is kind of exciting. I think of this as a way to earn residual income, and my time is my investment instead of money. Thank you, Medium!

I’m now up to $1.05 in my Medium account. For more updates on this post, please check the comments. …

I use Photoshop for advanced edits and compositing, but I often turn to simple paid or free photo editing software for fast fixes that I think are too complicated in Photoshop. For quick photo edits, I really miss the Microsoft PictureIt! that I used in 2004. That was one of…

You probably heard people say all your life that you should start one task before you finish another. In daily life, I try to follow that principle. However, I have my opinion about multitasking writing projects.

Right now, I’m juggling a few drafts for the 100-Day Daily Writing Challenge, and I’m completing assignments for two different clients all at once. One of the articles, it’s really long. That’s good unless you’re tired of reading the same text at least 10–15 times. …
