Day to Day

I typically wake up and go straight to Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to see what's happening. I also check my team communications apps (Slack, Microsoft Teams) to see if anything happened overnight. I then head downstairs to my TV room, put my computer on, get logged into work, and write the news. While writing the news, I'm on other websites (Comic Book, IGN, Game Informer, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, etc.) to see what else is happening and to inform my teams also.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

I always recommend to just start sending emails to different websites and see if you can be a freelance writer for them.
