The Solo Creator - Issue #5

Ahmed I. Shoukry

The past two weeks were exciting. We had the Eid El Fitr vacation, I had the chance to spend some time with my family. I came back to work for a couple of days, then my wife surprised me with a surprise trip for my birthday.
As a solo creator, I had to keep up with my schedule, I managed to write my weekly life and work newsletter, however, I failed to create a new life and work podcast episode. (finished it yesterday will be out tomorrow, back again on publishing schedule).
Today’s issue has some writing, productivity tips plus marketing tools.

My interview
This week I got featured in a podcast show by Younes Ben Amara, a writer from Algeria. We talked about content creation and self-publishing.
This week I sold my first book on Gumroad. I usually sell my books on other online booksellers such as Amazon, Apple, and Kobo. It’s exciting because Gumroad is a very important player in the field of indie publishing.

Productivity tips
I came across useful links to overcome writing block.
This Centuries-Old Trick Will Unlock Your Productivity
The simplest journaling method (for people who can't journal)
Solo Creator tools
Amazon released a new feature in KDP. It’s called Kindle Vella.
What is Kindle Vella? And Should You Join as an Author?
I joined, a quick way to make a personal page for links. However it’s much more than this. You can sell digital products, send newsletters, and create events.
Life & Work Podcast
If you like what you read, please share the newsletter with your fellow solo creators.
