I have been researching two writing projects Universal Basic Income and The Future of Work. I am finding that both topics are important conversations.
I am taking a few writing classes on Udemy:
- Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer
- Punctuation Mastery -- done
- Ninja Writing: The Four Levels Of Writing Mastery
- Secret Sauce of Great Writing
- Editing Mastery: How To Edit Writing To Perfection
I am reading The Rise and Fall of American Growth by Robert J. Gordon, but I received an early copy of The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene -- my favorite author. I am a bit torn, but I am going to make the executive decision to put down Gordon's book and read Greene's novel.
Saying "No" to everything else
Founder of CDBaby, Derek Sivers pens, "I am ambitiously focused on creating." Author Ryan Holiday agrees. "Your work is the only thing that matters."
I have been saying "Yes." to anything that crosses my inbox. Regrettably, my work has suffered because of my decisions. Now I deliberately say "No." to everything else that does not inspire my creative output.
Someone told me that anyone could draw. I called bullshit and turned sketching into a proof of concept (POC). I was shocked when after a few weeks I was sketching. I am graduating the POC into a project for 2019. Why -- to improve my writing.
