TMI Tuesday #115

What was your first job?

I first worked as a  software tester. I applied for a programming job, but I got turned down, so I tried a second time for a tester position. It works like a Quality Assurance for codes; we catch the errors that the programmers may have missed. We also do some proofreading and assist in some of the system designs. We make sure that the end product passes the client’s specifications.

In your next life what will be your job?

I am already living my next life as a blogger and content creator. I do not make much like I used to, but I love what I am doing. I love writing and creating content; I enjoy coming up with fresh ideas while expressing myself. I wish I could catch a break soon. 

Before I answer any further, I am raffling off a writing course from Udemy when I reach my Patreon goal for March. It was one of the first investments I made when I was still a budding writer. Please subscribe to my Patreon for a chance to join the raffle.

Now, to this week’s TMI!

I also get a chance to venture out on other stuff. Earlier I got my first shipment of books that I intend to resell. Lately, I also give out microloans to friends at a low-interest rate. I love what I do, and if not for our problem with the house – I would not be stressed out.

The Barbarian Bookshop? Anyone?

What’s a favorite item in your workspace, and why?

My fountain pen and notebook. I am a full-time writer and content creator; I enjoy writing down my ideas for content. I would write my topics as they come, so it is vital for me to have a pen with me all the time.

What can you not stop thinking about?

How to make more money? Think all you want, but at the end of the day, writing is like any other job – we all desire to do a proper job and get paid. I use the money I get from writing to make more money. I save and invest as much as I could.  So that when the moment arrives, I have enough to get by.

What are you holding on to that you cannot let go– a person, a show, an item, a career, a book–anything?

I would not let go of being a parent. I know kids will eventually grow up to be adults, but parenting never stops. I may change the way I see my daughter, but I will always be her dad. I refuse to let go of that – I refuse to give that up.

Bonus: Do you have a Twitter problem?

I do! I wish I have more exposure to social media. I know some of you are fine with free content, and I appreciate that. But I must make both ends meet; I have to put food on the table and pay our bills. It would help if I could reach a broad audience and further my reach. I would be glad if you could follow me on social media and share my posts. I would provide the links below.

Special thanks to my patrons, namely:

  1. You beat me to the post by an hour. I was so convinced this morning that with my early start, we might actually be ahead of you this week. Alas, I blame my neighbour for keeping me gossiping in the garden for an hour. Next time though, Mr. A! 😉

  2. Do you have a favorite fountain pen? I love fountain pens. But I am too cheap to spend more than $25 for a pen. My best pen is a Waterman Hemisphere I must have found on clearance, fine nib.
    Continued best wishes in your writing endeavors.


  3. I admire your commitment to the fountain pen and paper. For myself I have found muttering notes to myself on my phone gives me more space on public trains and buses. My only fear is somebody might be following me around with a notebook and pen taking notes.
