No one on the frontlines of the hair industry really wants to talk about a pandemic. I don't mean influencers like Brad Mondo who have the luxury of being able to stay at home and review TikTok hair tutorials for income. I mean your regular shmegular hair dressers at Fantastic Sam's who have to service 10 clients a day to make a livable wage.
The day is starting strangely. My head is foggy. When the day starts out like this, I choose not to be too hard on myself, well I try to choose that option (perfectionist habits die hard). The rest time needed for an introvert like me is often several hours or days. I don’t know which amount of time I need today, but because I actually want to be a novelist, I’m going to do my best to keep it at an hour to two hours. Part of that hour is watching authortubers or booktubers. I believe they're great feedback for writers. Here are the videos I watched today.
It is 11:45pm, and I am nowhere near done with my book. My deadline is next month, and I still have a quarter of the book to write. I got to this point because I have been procrastinating most of the time. I go into writing a book head strong and then lose motivation the further I go into it. And once the motivation is lost; I fall behind so quickly. I have asked for many extensions, but the editor finally had enough of my excuses and if I don’t complete it in time, I will lose my book deal.
I am 24 years old I currently am living in the lush green forests of New Hampshire for the summer working from home online. I currently write about three to five stories a week here on Medium and I am the owner of an entertainment news brand called Culture Slate. Before you ask “How are you retired if you still work?” I should explain my situation a little bit better.
Writing my horror short “Autonomy Bleeds Black” was really enlightening regarding my own narration style. I’m pretty poetic, I play around with rhythm, and I love sensory details. There are areas of my story that are rigid, however and I’m glad I caught that.
So, you wanna hear confessions, huh? Ok here's two that I have been keeping a secret because it happens at a place used to work at, and I don’t want to say the name of the location because these f#ckers could get mad, and I might get in trouble. So, I’ll call the workplace “Hell hole food place” I worked in the kitchen as a food prep. One of the perks about working in the kitchen, there was a lot of hot guys coming in and out all the time. There were times it was so slow that work would run low so, we would have to find things to do. So, my good gay guy friend (I don’t want to use his name so, I’ll call him “Q” because I don’t want him to get in trouble.) “Q” and I would purposely put quarters on the floor just to watch the guys bend over and pick up the quarters. Me and “Q” would giggle quietly. Ok, so it cost us both ten dollars a week, but it was worth it. I guess you could say we were helping the servers on a slow day.
Okay so my day started with a poetry warm up/edit, which is called “Confidence”.
A lot of businesses suddenly started allowing remote work in response to the coronavirus pandemic. As companies return to a more normal mode of operation, the question needs to be asked: should teams go back to normal? Working from home is clearly a workable solution for a lot of businesses. So, maybe you should keep doing it. Here are six reasons to let your team continue working from home:
The Work from home jobs force just got a big push from the current global coronavirus pandemic. But even before COVID-19 became a factor, increasing numbers of people have been saying goodbye to their onerous commute to work. Thanks to ever-evolving technologies like Skype, Face time, Slack, Zoom, Google Hangouts, authenticator apps, and cloud computing not to mention texting and email—it's no longer necessary to be in an office full-time to be a productive member of the team. In fact, many kinds of work can be done just as effectively, if not more so, from a home office. As appealing as remote work is to employees, it wouldn’t be such a strong trend if employers didn’t also recognize benefits from their side of the desk. Nowadays Freelancing is become more and more common place across a variety of industries. The statistics report of America says that 53 million people earn income by freelancing. Technology has made freelancing easy. You can do you work at any place you no longer need a office or fancy setup. Most work can be done on mobile. It’s a growing industry and work is there. Demand is up. You can also do this work without quitting your current job. By freelancing you get to be your own boss. You get decide which client you will accept into your virtual space.
Last year I spent a great deal of time studying Bram Stoker’s writing style, specifically Dracula. In my article “Three Essential Writing Techniques from Stoker's Dracula and the Epistolary Narrative”, there’s a section breaking down the use of distinctive tone in every character’s voice. I feel like this is one of those things that is probably considered obvious to most writers, but I’ve seen writers slip up on this, including myself. I’m in a part of my novel right now where a new group of characters are being introduced and I’m worried. Some voices are distinct, while others replicate characters introduced earlier. So…what to do? Do I just compare and contrast? Be picky about my diction during the dialogue? I’m trying to keep in mind what I wrote before:
The possibility of working from home, setting up a business in your spare room or working part-time as a freelancer has come with the internet. As Internet speeds and mobile access increased, the home office became more popular. Working from home, however, isn't for everyone and shared office space in jaipur have begun to open up to address the gap. Here we discuss the pros and cons of shared office space in jaipur.. As compared to traditional office spaces, coworking or shared office spaces have come out as a refreshing change.
Hollywood’s horror industry has been pretty abusive towards ancient and indigenous culture. Shamanic practices from indigenous civilizations (eastern and western) and many other beliefs or customs have been poorly represented in horror media and the most depressing part about this is when ignorant audiences believe the Hollywood representations. It’s this kind of slander in western media that distances and even shames the ethnic roots of people of color. In a previous blog post, I mentioned that I feel neither African or American enough to have any real sense of belonging ethnically. I can research my ancestors, do an AncestryDNA test, or just go visit Africa if I want, but the connection will always be lacking in some way thanks to colonization and the poor, unfair judgments of my ancestors to this day. There are even African American families who cling to the Abrahamic religions to make sure they fit the status quo. So, as a horror and dark fantasy writer myself, I want that to change.
