How I create my drawing

I don't know how to draw. I am better at taking photos or videos.

But sometimes, I need drawing, not photography.

There are drawers in Cambodia. However, I rarely go to them. First, I don't have much money - they charge from USD 15 to USD 50 for one A4. Second, I don't know if I can work with them or not. Hence, I decided to use my own way to create a drawing for my story.

Yes, I am a writer. I write both fiction and non-fiction; I also write news articles. Those need pictures, sometimes photos, sometimes drawing.

In order to get the drawing, I use a photo in the first step. I take photos of any object that I am interested in. After that, I edited it to be a drawing. Or I take a photo of an abstract picture, after that, I draw according to my imagination.

Like the above photo. I found it by chance. It is my blanket. 

When I got up one morning, I imaged the picture on the blanket. So, I hurriedly took a camera and recorded it. Then I made an outline to remind me of the shape of the imagined picture.

It is not done yet. I need time to edit it to become a useful image for my fiction/site.

Though it is done, I need the right time and right theme to post it.

What I do to make people who can read and can't read read my writing

T here was one day LinkedIn notified me of the article of a business woman.  I didn't know her until I saw her last name, I checked then I realized she is the sister of Facebook, now Meta's owner.  I followed her but later on I wondered why I became her followers - because I liked, because I wanted to use her to get noticed, or because she gave me inspiration. Neither of them. I decided to unfollow her; I will wait for the day I have a sincere and clear goal to follow her, then I will follow her. Well, before I clicked unfollow, I was inspired by one thing. She had an article and at the bottom there was a video link. As I clicked it, it linked me to a video but it was not new - it was her voice reading that article. During the early days of the pandemic, the schools were closed and studied online. One of my nephews was at kindergarten and because of that, he couldn't read or write.  When I visited him, he liked me to read a book for him. I found he liked readin

Short story 'Job Interview'

It is a short story that I had published on February, 01 2019. I hid it, but now I have decided to publish it again. Just to entertain the readers only, because these days, I cannot find a  topic to write; therefore, I check and I think I should show the post that I have hidden.  Please enjoy. written by Chakriya PHOU In a company's room... Interviewer : Hello, welcome to my company. Please show why I should hire you.   Interviewee : Because I have 3 qualifications.   Interviewer : What are they?   Interviewee : First, I speak honestly. Second, I share all knowledge/information. Third, if I do something wrong, I will accept my mistake.   Interviewer : Because of these 3 qualifications, I hope you'll find another job.   Interviewee : Why?   Interviewer : You speak honestly, it means you are not flexible. You share info, it means you cannot be my confidant because you would tell others about my story. You accept your mistake if you do wrong, it means you don't k

One difficulty the online business using Facebook page meets

Online business doesn't always go smoothly, it has problems like business on the land. Such as my business. Mostly I use a cell phone to operate my shop. With the old platform, I and customers could contact each other fast.  When Facebook changed to Meta and changed its platform, I could not communicate with my customers - especially when they messaged or commented to buy my product, I didn't receive it until half a day later. So I have to use the Meta business app to run my store. However, it doesn't help my business to be better. The app goes down everyday; I have to reinstall it once every two days or I will lose my customers.     click on picture to see video I cannot choose though it gives me a hard and unhappy time - because Cambodians are fans of Facebook. It's a real example to prove that doing business is not easy and being an online entrepreneur, especially a start-upers, isn't always successful - we need time.
