Well now, here’s something…

In YouTube-landia there’s this thing where channel hosts do what’s called Draw My Life. They draw their life on some sort of whiteboard set up and we learn (what they want to tell us of) their life… It’s a popular ‘tag’… just about everyone does it… I personally reckon it’s interesting… there’s even a channel who just does draw my lifes for celebrities…

I decided maybe I could do one for my writer’s life…

So while it’s not STRICTLY what Draw My Life is about… it is a kinda sorta similar kinda thing… kinda sorta…

This vid shows how it all came to be for me as GabbaWrites. (BTW – this is no advertisement for what I do 9 to 5… Thing is peeps… the 9 to 5 wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for writerly type stuff… and the writerly type stuff wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for the 9 to 5 …*confused? that’s OK*

… so I put the 9 to 5 in… ’cause it’s part of it.

here is:


Thank you to those who know who they are…Hope you like my Draw My Writer’s Life.

Cheeries to you good people of the embrace, Gabba

Interesting these days how much video has taken over the world.

This world domination performance of online video has taken me away from blogging… because I’ve been working away at the ye olde 9 to 5 making video promo product for Authors who, like the of the world, are taking advantage of the online video revolution.

For writers a bit of vid promo can really help the cause. I did a guest blog post about it at Breathless In The Bush blog… Authors can get into the fun stuff of DIY (i.e. no cost) video marketing… It can be fun, it can be inspiring – and most importantly, from my experience – a great way to connect with fans.

The  vloggie is here too:

If you got any qu’s… please feel free to leave them in the comments.

Friendly FYI:

– social media including Instagram, twitter and Facebook (the big trois) are gearing towards FAVOURING video in algorithms. If you don’t want to be seen, use a difficult to read static image with unreadable text. If you want to be seen… use a fast acting, eye-catching short vid. (oh and snapchat is quickly becoming the social media outlet de jour)
– if you fancy having a trailer, synoptic slide shows form yawns and itchy click-off fingers. High impact visuals are the go … because (like I say….) video is the go-to for promo.
