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.
