ChatGPT Is Coming For Your Job

Just one year after I wrote this post about AI and writing, ChatGPT was released into the world, threatening to disrupt so many fields from programming to copywriting. Naturally, I had my pitchfork at the ready. AI is going to take my job! I thought. Every creative in the world is doomed! Then I remembered I was jobless. Anyhoo, I decided to play around with the thing and see if creative writing was really doomed to a future of algorithms or if us writers could benefit from wielding this Star Trek tech. And here’s what I’ve learned. 1. Garbage in, garbage out You know what I like about ChatGP ..read more

Where I Get All My Writing Ideas From

Where do you get your ideas from? I personally can’t say. I know when they have the most odds of showing up, but I don’t exactly know where they come from. But as fate would have it, my friend would ask me this question on a particularly eventless morning, and that would be the tinder for this post. So Wan, if you’re reading this, that’s how I get my ideas. Maybe this post will answer that question proper. Or maybe I’m just writing this because I need something for this week. Either way, let’s take a quick tour through my Idea Central and see if we can source for its… uh… source. “The irrita ..read more

The Things I’ve Removed For A Better Life

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry It’s easy to want more in life. In fact, we’re programmed that way. Give us a taste of sugar and next we’ll want doughnuts. Earn our first million and we’ll look for a billion. The hedonic treadmill is real, and constantly running is not the path to happiness. If anything, it’ll probably highlight just how capable you are of crying in your Lamborghini. Of course, I shouldn’t comment since I don’t have a Lamborghini, but I did win the lottery where authordom is ..read more

How To Shift Gears And Get Things Done

When’s the last time you drove a stick shift? Seems like an irrelevant question, until you recall the fact that I’m a writer. And as it turns out, being a writer affords me the ability to make the zaniest of analogies. Hence today we officiate the marriage between productivity and driving a manual transmission. But first off, let’s discuss productivity overdrive (PO). Is it a fancy new term I made up? Yes. Is it important? Not really. Should we still treat it like pre-existing corporate lingo? Most definitely. So what is it? In a nutshell, it’s basically flow. You’ve probably felt PO at least ..read more

How My Failed 2022 Will Help Improve My 2023

This is it. Another year has passed, which means it’s time for the New Year’s resolutions posts. I thought of joining the fun, but then I realised how much I’ve yet to achieve for 2022. So for my final post of this year, I figured I’d reflect on my shortcomings instead of my hopes and dreams. Because as Socrates said, an unexamined life is one not worth living. So let’s examine mine and we’ll see if I can cough up some lessons on how to make the most out of 2023. 1. Writing every day I wrote almost every day in 2022, so I may as well call myself Stephen King and call it a year, am I right? Th ..read more

This Is How You Fail At Overcoming Procrastination

Procrastination is like a credit card: fun until you get the bill. It’s also the art of keeping up with yesterday. I wish I could say I came up with those insights. Alas, they’re credited to people much smarter than I am. Who, you ask? I’ll get back to you on that. Tomorrow. Maybe. Look, I wish I could tell you I have the answer to procrastination, and that there is a surefire way to getting things done, but every time I think I’ve solved the problem, I wake up the next day and have to fight the battle all over again. But just because I don’t have the answers doesn’t mean I don’t have the ans ..read more

I Was Wrong About Grammar Apps. Here’s What I Think Now.

I learn new things every day. Sometimes I fill a gap, and other times I replace entire belief systems. Today I fall somewhere in the middle. I’m taking back what I said about not liking grammar apps like Grammarly or Hemingway, because I’d decided to give them a go and found that they weren’t as bad as I made them out to be. But don’t hold me to anything though, because who knows if I’ll change my mind again? For now, let’s just start with the new pros and cons I’ve discovered since using said apps. Pro 1: It’s an unbiased review of your work What I like about these apps is the way they prese ..read more
