A writer’s day and thoughts, today I am writing from my own personal writer’s perspectives, thoughts, views and plans. It’s something different from my personal updates and reflections, also away from my technology and business media news coverage.
Official launch of my second photography zine
It’s finally official, I finally announced the launch of my second photography zine, a special theme zine on photography therapy and playbook. A personal project idea that came out from me handling my own personal situations during the ongoing global pandemic situation in 2021. Photography and writing were key factors that got me out from that rabbit hole.
More deep and personal insights can be read here inside this article that I wrote and published on my TGH Photography and Travel portal/blog. If you like to purchase my 2nd photography zine titled “TGH Photography Therapy Zine and Playbook”, it’s available on MagCloud.
Reading Not Enough
I am not reading enough books, even though I am reading articles online, from both news outlets and writers from different genres. My books inside my cupboard are waiting for me to read them again or start reading them since I bought those books.
Time to go back reading “No Missing Tools: Creativity In An Age Of Abundance” by Fernando Gros, “The Little Book of Ikigai” by Ken Mogi and Taiwan street travel by Emico.
New books to read are “Klopp Bring The Noise” by Raphael Honigstein, “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck* by Mark Manson and “Goodbye, Things on Minimalist Living” by Fumio Sasaki.
Writing Not Fast Enough
I am not writing fast enough, on both media news coverage, media events coverage, as well as personal and visual storytelling side. On one hand, it can be really exhausting, it’s also more challenging to bring my writing to the next level.
Would I be able to get back to a faster pace of writing? Let’s see how it goes, I realised that quality writing takes a bit more time than usual, I do produce better quality articles too.
What’s up next for my writing topics/projects?
What’s up next for my writing topics/projects? I would break it down into a few areas that I am working on:
This is where I provide updates and reflections on personal and business side of things aka ranting on a quarterly basis, sometimes along with half yearly and full year review updates as well. My personal writing is where I am able to write freely, sharing what I want to share on a personal basis. This is my personal avenue and platform to release them in my own words, thoughts and feelings.
Over my years of writing, media news coverage on both technology, photography and travel sectors, I have also developed interests and concerns in topics that are close to my heart and mind.
Some areas that I am planning to go more in-depth are sustainability and climate change, future and developments of cryptocurrency and blockchain, and future of work.
Visual storytelling – photography and travel
A genre that I started in 2006, my visual storytelling adventures and journeys on my TGH Photography and Travel portal/blog, accompanying my photography portfolio website TGH Photography, in my content creation and social media marketing/digital marketing journeys.
I am thinking of a new book project for year 2023, either a photo book or a visual storytelling travel book. More information and updates would be shared when I am ready to announce.
There could also be a chance for projects or commissioned work here in Singapore or overseas for my visual storytelling skillsets and experiences as well.
15 years young in 2023
Founded in 2008, TGH Technology and Business portal/blogs turning 15 years young in January 2023. Since I haven’t celebrate any major milestone for TGH Technology and Business portal/blog, I might do a milestone celebration, maybe something similar to the 15 years milestone for my TGH Photography and Travel portal/blog in April 2021.
Journaling and Writing – Old School + Modern Technology
As I am making changes to my WFH workstation by adding a used 2017 Apple iMac 21.5, and hybrid remote working setup recently, adding a used Logitech Slim Combo keyboard for my Apple iPad Air 3, looking to add a few more peripherals soon to complete my content creation, photography and writing work, portable and on the move. I am trying out the Day One journaling app on my Apple iPad Air 3, typing down notes, thoughts and ideas while I am on the move.
During this period, I am also thinking about my journaling with notebooks for work/daily usage as well as a travelers notebook. Would I be able to combine old school + modern technology in my journaling and writing?
Next Stop – What would it be?
On board my writing and visual storytelling journey, coming to 15 years for this website. Next stop – What would it be? What are my goals, objectives and plans for my writing?
Let me think, let me plan, let me write it down.
Stay tuned, coming soon.
