Week 2: Solid Foundation Laid Down

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening!

As week 2 comes to a close, a lot of interesting things have happened in the world:

(1) Hurricane Imelda catastrophically hitting Texas.

(2) President Trump coming to California (through the street of where my work is located in Century City).

(3) Finding a solid foundation for the social media platform I’ll be using for marketing my book(s). Big Hint: It’s not YouTube, FaceBook, Instagram, Twitch or Twitter.

It’s been 12 years since I started working on my creative stories, and ever since that time, I didn’t know how I would ever be able to share the written words of my work with the world in a way that people would be able to find it.

But now that life, and particularly society for many different countries throughout the world, have progressed (and also regressed in some regards); I can only sum up this feeling of completion I feel now as being aligned with God himself.

There is something strange about life. Something thrilling and almost forbidden about the experiences we go through. We as humans yearn and struggle to be “accepted” into whatever social circle, or whatever group in general, that we find ourselves in. Heck, even I’m guilty of doing this at my current job from time to time. Naturally, though, I enjoy the company of others – particularly people who have something interesting or fascinating to share.

I suppose all of this seemingly random talk I’m spewing at this moment is a culmination of a sense of relief, and also ironically, a sense of the coming wave of exertion that will befall me soon enough. Working in Corporate America is strangely fulfilling to me, but I noticed over the last couple of weeks that I have markedly less energy then I did before.

To combat this, I’ve been working out at my work’s on-site gym. To be more specific, the building management of the tower I work in owns the gym. But we as employees, working for businesses that are housed in said-tower, get access for $40 / month.

I suppose you can tell that I’m extremely excited as I usually am well-composed and methodical in my words. But this is a personal journal series after all. Though this journal entry will be short, it certainly will be one I will look back on and laugh about for either one of the two following reasons:

(1) My efforts in marketing myself (well…not entirely myself, but you’ll know when the time comes), has been a success! I’ve also accomplished marketing my book(s) successfully as well.

(2) I’ve “failed”, but in the process, have gained invaluable insight into what it takes to run a social media marketing plan.

I think it fitting to end this post with a personal favorite quote that reminds me that what I’m doing has a purpose at the end:

“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.” ―Winston Churchill
