Calculating readthrough on the Last Mayor series

Readthrough is a fascinating concept that may seem a little complex and alien at first, but is actually super obvious and essential to know when selling books in a series. You’ve probably heard Mark Dawson banging on about it. Maybe you’ve had a crack at calculating it. It basically means – what percentage of people who read your first book in series go on to read the later books?

Killing Eve, Last Year’s Best New Show, Has Become Too Big For Just One Network

How to Improve Your Freelancing Productivity

I do a lot of my work from home. While this is great in many ways, there is one where I have a lot of trouble: productivity. It is just so easy to lose track of time, or to begin procrastinating. There are some days where you just can’t get started, and before you know it you realize it is one in the afternoon and you are still in your bathrobe, without a single bit of work done. One of the reasons it is so hard to be productive at home is that it isn’t easy to feel stressed or like there is a t...

Don’t let social media ruin your photography

I’m at a Starbucks in Hanoi, typically it’s a peaceful location where I can write and think, but today it’s overrun with young people smoking cigarettes, occasionally smiling and laughing, but mostly consumed with their phones browsing Instagram and taking selfies to reload their feed with an annoyed older man in their background typing away.

Productive choices (which?)

When you’re doing scary creative work, or work that requires emotional labor, it’s natural to want to walk away a bit. To distract yourself. To go shave a yak, mindlessly eat or bother someone in the next cube. This is the main activity online, actually. People avoiding the real work. One useful practice is to have forced choices that break up the work but that are also productive. Not fun, that would be a mistake, but productive. Example: For the next hour, we either need to be developing a bra...
