Welcome to Chapter 23 by me, James Garside.
I’m an independent journalist and writer. Part-time vagabond, full-time grumpy arse.
If I could wave a magic wand I’d have a lifestream of all my writing and creative projects turned automatically into a daily digest that people pay to subscribe to as a multimedia newsletter.
No such service exists. The closest fit that I could find was Substack. So here we are.
My first thoughts were:
“Should I start a substack? It’s what all the cool kids are doing. Never mind. I just answered my own question.”
Then several cups of tea later:
“I started a substack. I don’t care what the cool kids say. Just promise not to tell them, ok?”
Insofar as Chapter 23 is a newsletter here’s the sort of thing you can expect:
- Access to all of my writing — everything — and I do mean everything
- Friend Links to pieces that are behind paywalls so you can read for free
- Plans for world domination
- Secret things you won’t find anywhere else
But Chapter 23 isn’t really just a newsletter.
