William Zinsser on the First Sentence
We’ll be honest — as a creator, writing should be on your list on to-do things. Not to publish but for clarity of thought. And if you’re looking for solid advice on writing, don’t look beyond William Zinsser’s On Writing Well. Packed with great advice on ideating, writing, and how difficult it is to write or create — this book is honest, and if you’re a creator who hasn’t gotten their hands on this book yet, it’s time you do.

Discover a New Creator: Let’s Not Meet
No, no, not that Andrew Tate. But a different creator!
He hosts this true horror podcast and narrates chilling real-life horror stories; sometimes, he has guests who share their stories. While some stories aren’t for the faint-hearted (we mean us), some are super creepy. Don’t say we haven’t warned you!

Paywalled Videos on Twitter?
A lot is happening after Musk took over Twitter.
And we’ll be honest — we can’t keep up anymore.
After layoffs and announcing blue tickets can be bought at a price ($8 monthly), it’s time for paywalled videos.
Creators or Twitter users can now tweet videos and put them behind a paywall. It’s up to the creator to decide the cost of the video. According to the *Washington Post,* Twitter is already working on this feature and might ship it asap. 💰
Really looks like video content will be the cornerstone for most platforms. What do you think?
