But… Mental Health?

If the numbers stressed me out or made me obsessive, I absolutely wouldn’t do it.
I’ll admit, I did turn off my Medium notifications to protect myself from my own craziness. In spite of that, my spreadsheets provide me only joy!

Crystal Ball

I feel like a lot of new writers joined us in the last month, and those writers are looking for inspiration.

My Pledge

In a previous story I pledged to have some of my stories professionally edited this month, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

The plan begins now

Starting soon, I’ll write several stories that I suspect will be well received.

Written by

I write articles that inform and delight from my anti-virus bunker in Shanghai, China. 🇦🇺 🇨🇳
