A blog for Kenyan iwriters. Get first hand information, gained from experience on how to survive on this competitive writing site, and get the best out of it.
I have been away for a while. Trying to find my way. So I have decided to start something else-transcription.
A friend told me about an opportunity and boom- I sent my resume. When they contacted me and asked me to do a test, it took me an entire 30 minutes just to finish 2 minutes of audio. I realized that I needed to sit and read more about it. So here I am, a student of transcription. I just learnt that my typing speed is 36 words per minute. This online world, and writing in general, requires patience and persistence.
I will be giving you more details on what’s next. For iwriter, I have just become lazy. I have been enjoying a number of special requests but the market just doesn’t psyche me up anymore.

But don’t you worry, as soon as I get my groove back, I’ll be back to have the bucks rolling in.
