13 Reasons Why

Youtube Wikipedia Spotify Netflix off-grid 13 Reasons Why
So, two episodes ago, I started watching 13 Reasons Why ("Tote Mädchen Lügen Nicht" - "Dead Girls don't lie"). It has been on my watchlist since it came out. I remember it releasing an enormous “scream” in public.

But I came back to it a different way. Recently I started binging...

Bred to suffer (or about a puppy/dog)

Years back I saw Cats & Dogs on VHS . Ever since I have been obsessed with dogs and in a hate relationship with cats . I can remember myself wanting a puppy but ever never got one. I did get a greek tortoise when I was in elementary school...

Content Overflow

Netflix Youtube twitch Amazon Prime Video Disney+ Content movies novels Udemy Content Overflow
Netflix , Amazon Prime Video , Disney+ , Youtube , twitch and many other Platforms have one thing in common: Content . I remember a statistic about YouTube that stated that 500 hours of Content are uploaded every minute. That's 500 days of new stuff to watch every day.

Sure, I...

Selling Plasma

A lot of the people I listen to at the shelter sell plasma . For a good portion of them the cash they make from plasma is their only source of income. I'll see them invite others to come with them, because as Todd told me, "they get bonuses for...

For me the worst part about the internet is the best feature: infinite access to information.

By this point in my life I've figured out and accepted that the best type of day is not the kind that starts with consuming. It doesn't matter how good the podcast is or how...

Fist as weapon - III

Youtube
I once had a buddy who got knocked out in one punch. He had been standing on the corner listening to something on his wireless headphones with his hands in his pockets when a youngster came around and threw a fist into his mouth.

This buddy was not a fragile character....

Who to impress

Even if we don't think we are, most of us live lives trying to impress virtual imaginations of how famous people would think about us.

How much time have we spent trying to mold ourselves into someone who would impress some famous designer? Or a CEO we admire? We watch...

How Peter Thiel met John Cena

John Cena Peter Thiel Youtube Palintir F.U WWE
John Cena hadn't always worked for Palintir . Before going around saving rare species of butterflies by breaking people's thumbs for Peter Thiel , he had once been a wrestler... the 'fake' kind of wrestling that is.

His finishing move was called the F.U as a phonetic acronym for "fuck you",...

On the 27th floor

On the 27th floor I saw a butterfly on the other side of my glass wall. I wondered how it could've ever gotten so high. I thought of a story of a window cleaner who was also a butterfly collector who had brought it with them up to work. And...

This is awesome, Keni. 

I also wished to do something similar to this. I once sent you a 
Youtube
video about 
Sam Ovens
sharing his 
War Calendar
in which he first lists out his larger goals for the year... and then he reverse engineers the tasks for the days in which he would need to fulfill to achieve the larger goals.

I think your approach would be more helpful for me because I have less clarity on concrete larger goals for the annual duration. And your approach feels more conducive to exploring what we are becoming curious to rather than top-down defining our goals and trying to force our daily-selves to produce accordingly.

I think I already know the answer to this, but are you willing to share this spreadsheet? Or at least a segment of it? lol. You could even censor out some of the items when you share so I don't know what they are.

More than decent
I honestly can't claim any horizon projects because I'm not working on anything at the moment that I have outcome based expectations for yet.

I do have general expectations for continuing to develop the world of 
Westcity
and the characters within it... which I'm doing in the "I found the diaries of Greco" series, but even with that I see it more as practice than a thing I'm horizoning.

Let me know if I'm thinking of horizon projects different than you. I'm interpreting it as the biggest, active project that you are planning to complete.

Similarly to the saving hte best part for later fallacy that writers make, I think you should just write it through. Write it through because then the real part begins. Finding what's wrong with it and why it sucks.

Most writers seem to do a better job with fixing bad writing then creating bad writing. Most writers refuse to write bad stuff so they sit with their phone in their hands staring at
reddit
or 
Twitter
or motiviational
Youtube
videos instead.

Trust me, your story's going to suck really bad. No matter how great you think it is in your head. So get it out and then let's make it good.

I touch on this in 
Rewriting is easier than writing Yours Truly
 

Also recommend the article that's mentioned in that post. In fact just read that.
