Anonymity and Diversity
On this episode Gary and I talk about a serious issue. But like all other issues, we can get through this. With friends and family and coming together to share what we love. Art. See what we think. And if you want to comment, or interact, drop us a line. We'd love to hear your thoughts. Please subscribe.
So I've been trying something. It's a mix of a few things I've said on here, just doing it, meaning writing (or insert anything creative you are going for).
I was talking to a writer friend of mine, Gary Buller, and we were discussing another writer who puts out stories at a pretty fast clip. He mentioned that they try to write a story a day. I've heard about some who do this, the level of polish depends on the writer, but I've heard of it. Then I thought, what if I apply this every time I get a thought. Instead of just letting the idea get away like usual, I'll act on it and push out a full story, good or bad. So far the results gave been pretty good. I've noticed that stale thoughts are being emptied, making way for new ones. New techniques are being thought up, and I have more room after the purge to think up new ideas. What I do is grab any device closest: phone, laptop, work computer (if you have access to one at your job) and get down the story. No hesi…
I'm excited. Just got out of work and my wife texts me with a message she revived from Sprint. It states what I'd read on a site not too long ago about my phone getting a big update on February 24th. Not only will Note 9 be getting Android 10, but also Samsung's One UI 2.
Looks like it impacts Calling PLUS. Don't think I really ever used that. Hope it's not a permanent issue, though. I'll have to look into that.
I've been loving my Note 9. Had it for about a year now. It's hands down the best phone I've ever owned. People are getting this phone instead of the Note 10, because of the lower price.
Back to the news. It's not just the updated functionality to the phone and new features that I'm looking forward to, it's the DEX on PC support, where I can plug my phone in with a USB cable to my laptop and my phone becomes a computer on my computer. Note 9 has DEX built into the phone, so only a cord is needed to turn the device into a desktop…
I've been thinking about this a lot lately. And if you think about it just the way that horror writing and some genres were easier back maybe 20-30 years ago, it got harder to break through. Things were new back then, there was unchartered territory.
And now with YouTube and other social outlets, it's becoming harder to be seen not only above others with the same intention, but space is being given to big outlets.
That's not good for the little guy, but we still try. We still create.
I've noticed social media soaks up lots of time that could be used to create more, read more, practice your craft.
You get hooked on views and likes and what someone is saying next. And don't get me wrong, if you don't go overboard it's cool, I mean who's going to look at all the artists if they aren't looking around.
What I mean is when we stop writing, or making music, or anything else we are doing, to tweet through the day and night.
