Forgot to write a newsletter this week. [2010-10-10]

This is why you can’t just make a To Do List, you have to check it, too. Anyway, I just launched my new project I was telling you about. The 2 year project. Check it out: mnmlwbdsgn.com. Looking forward, Garrett Mickley GarrettMickley.com P.S. if you missed last week’s newsletter, that new project has pretty much the exact Continue reading Forgot to write a newsletter this week.

My latest struggle and what I learned from a recent conference. [2017-10-05]

I have the perfect client right now.   His project is interesting. He shows up to meetings on time. He sends me information I need when requested. He doesn’t complain. He didn’t even argue the price of the contract.   But I’m not having fun.   It’s not because of him or the project. It’s Continue reading My latest struggle and what I learned from a recent conference. [2017-10-05]

Do you make stuff? My new project is for you. [2017-09-19]

Pretty much everything is on hold now, except for one project. I’ve started taking on freelance clients again, and I’m totally digging the niche. I’m helping artists and makers of all kinds market their creations online. This first new client takes the ashes of your cremated pets (or grandma, I suppose) and puts them into cool blown Continue reading Do you make stuff? My new project is for you. [2017-09-19]

I survived Hurricane Irma but I made one mistake [2017-09-12]

I’m writing this to you on my lunch break at my day job office, because my apartment still doesn’t have power. The good news is, I survived Hurricane Irma. The bad news is, last week I promised you an update on all of my projects and I am unable to deliver. I could blame the Continue reading I survived Hurricane Irma but I made one mistake [2017-09-12]

I’m thinking of running a give-away [2017-09-05]

I want to run a give-away soon, but I’m having trouble coming up with something useful to give away. I don’t want to just give away something generic. If I do something like an iTunes Gift Card, lots of people will sign up for the give away but they might not be interested in my Continue reading I’m thinking of running a give-away [2017-09-05]

One place to find writing work [2017-08-23]

Working on big things this week but I wanted to show you a cool site I found. It’s called We Work Remotely, and it’s job listings for writers, programmers, and some other fields. Some of the listings for writers are contract work, and some of them are for part- and full-time jobs with benefits. I’ve mentioned Continue reading One place to find writing work [2017-08-23]

I’ve gotten some feedback on this newsletter [2017-08-15]

I’ve been getting a lot of constructive feedback on both my website and this newsletter and I’ve been thinking about it. The most common thing I get is that things are confusing. My site says I’m a cyberpunk author, and it has some of my writing, but it mostly seems focused on teaching writing business Continue reading I’ve gotten some feedback on this newsletter [2017-08-15]

My First Biggest Regret In Life – Not Getting Started Sooner

I want to share a little story with you about how I used to not be happy, and what I’ve done to change that. Maybe it’ll resonate with you. Anybody that knows me will probably tell you I love to talk about myself, but honestly: I’m sharing this with you because I hope it will Continue reading My First Biggest Regret In Life – Not Getting Started Sooner

Want $500 from Acorns for doing practically nothing?

I just found out that Acorns, the set-and-forget investing app, is giving away $200 $500 + $5 for every referral you make this month (August November 2017). Plus, they’ll give you (and me) an extra $5 if you sign up through my referral link (if you don’t already have an account). I’m going to show Continue reading Want $500 from Acorns for doing practically nothing?

Cut Back on Social Media So You Have More Time To Write
