As a full-time writer, I have to write A LOT, and it can sometimes be challenging to tackle all of the projects I’d like to without setting up a system to follow so that I can optimize my time:

  • I’m working on a suspense novel
  • I ghostwrite for a number of clients daily
  • I write two Medium articles per day




I pen articles about politics, culture, & writing.
