A Billionaire Dinosaur Forced Me Gay – THE REVIEW

I wasn’t surprised by the existence of a book called A Billionaire Dinosaur Forced Me Gay in the world. Or it’s painfully high sales ranking on Amazon. At only 15 pages, Hunter Fox’s story of dinosaur homosexuality may be, word for word, the most profitable piece of writing of the year. But I did wonder,Continue reading “A Billionaire Dinosaur Forced Me Gay – THE REVIEW”

There is no such thing as exposure

There is one absolute and inalienable fact about creativity; your success as a creator is 100% dependent on how good you are. I say this as a pre-cursor to talking about one of the most pernicious problems creators are faced with. Being asked to work for free. The shady types who make these requests rarelyContinue reading “There is no such thing as exposure”

The 3 core qualities of a digital nomad

Nearly half a year ago I stuffed my life in to a backpack and my work in to a laptop and set out on the road as a digital nomad. It’s been a wonderful and intense five months, and time enough to learn a little about how working and travelling combine, and why so manyContinue reading “The 3 core qualities of a digital nomad”

Have you ever begun to write and realised you’ve been justContinue reading “How to be in the moment and write better words”

Running Without Pavements

Where in the world is Damien G Walter?

Since going nomad back in July I’ve been living out of a backpack and my trusty Macbook Air laptop. My first destination was France visiting my extended family. Now, after a month or so back in the UK sorting various work tasks, I am back on the road. But where am I? Thailand! At thisContinue reading “Where in the world is Damien G Walter?”

The revolution will not be realism

We live in times of immense change. Technology is a tool of change, but it’s the lives and desires of all seven billion humans on the planet really driving change. And, whether you welcome the change or not (I’m among those greeting it with open arms) you can’t doubt that it is very real. ButContinue reading “The revolution will not be realism”

Which dystopia are we living in?

It seems a bit rough to accuse modern Britain of being a dystopia when it’s also such an excellent source of tea, roast dinners and well-tailored clothing. But then the really disturbing thing about any dystopia is that for every Winston Smith resisting the machine, there are thousands of content consumers quite happy with BigContinue reading “Which dystopia are we living in?”
