I decided to try a project that I haven't seen anyone else do on YouTube. I'm going to write a short story in the dark (meaning I don't have an outline or an ending in mind when I start) and I'm going to write it while you watch. In this video, I discuss more of my plan for this project.

We finish up our discussion of the enneagram by continuing with the final type, The Peacemaker. This type seeks connection and balance within themselves and between others. They can be easy-going and spiritual, but can also be naive and in denial of their problems

This week we continue our discussion of the enneagram by moving through the various types. This week is Type 8, The Challenger. Challengers can be bold, brash, and challenging to themselves and others. Unfortunately, they can also be paranoid, cold, and violent. In fiction, they make great heroes or villains.
