1 Atom of Reflection
I am attending Write of Passage cohort 10, an online writing course I attended 18 months ago that originated this very newsletter. This time I’m focusing on writing content supporting my video production.
If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Tik Tok, you might have noticed how I published a new video daily for the last week. It’s an experiment, but I like it very much. If you don’t follow me there, what are you waiting for? :)
At the moment, I’m publishing atomic videos extracted from a lengthy interview. However, I’ll experiment with more ad-hoc content in the coming weeks.
Here the draft I’m working on, which will be soon become a video.
Don’t hesitate to watch, like, and comment on my videos and eventually provide feedback. I look forward to hearing from you!
