Buy Now Pay Later is an interest bearing option that allows you to delay payments on your purchases for up to 12 months depending on how much you spend. The delayed payment period starts from the date of order including pre-ordered items and those not ready for immediate dispatch. How is interest calculated? Interest is calculated daily from date of order, compounded every 28 days and added to your account as a lump sum at the end of the delayed payment period.
This means you will pay interest on interest. How to avoid paying interest? You can avoid all of the interest by paying the cash price before the end of the delayed payment period, this can be done in one full payment or multiple partial payments. Making partial payments without clearing the cash price in full will reduce the lump sum of compound interest charged at the end of the delayed payment period. Number 5: Learn to network.

If you try too hard, your co-workers will see right through it. Whether I'm working on an outline or a scene comes up where I'm thinking about like 'ok, let me see where that scene goes. Let me see if I could find these characters in this scene.
Let me see if I can learn something new about these characters. But yea it changes day to day because I don't like to have the same routine for too long. I'll adopt one and maybe it works for a few months.
Then it gets a little tiring so I switch it up. So, some days I'll start right then and there like 'ok, I gotta write now'. Other days, I'll do something else like work out or, you know, I have a regular job, so I'm doing regular job stuff, and then I get to the writing. It all depends. Yea, it changes every few months. It all depends on the mood that I'm in. Do you learn a lot from other writers and how they work?
It's great because you got a writing staff where everybody's different. And like we were talking about what's the schedule like or the day in the life of a writer. Everybody's got different things. Like, for instance, one writer comes in and he'll start working on crossword puzzles just to get the brain going. Then he gets into it.
You got other ones that Facetime with their family and then they get into it. Some people come in even earlier than everybody else before, we come in at 9 o'clock, but some people come in at seven in the morning and get some stuff done. It's definitely a dope work place because I got my own office.
I got my own space. And that's a luxury that I don't take for granted. Other writers are probably in each other's office going over story ideas. They're really open. So, I'll just pop into their office and listen to them. If I get an idea, maybe I could pitch it and they're really receptive to new ideas, fresh ideas. Other times when we'll be in the writers room all day and I'm just there listening and just taking everything in. Not necessarily analyzing anything but just taking it in and let it go to the subconscious.
And then it will probably reflect in the way I work later on without me even knowing. It's motivating when you know somebody is in the next room working. When you just, you know, you're procrastinating. The job really tests your discipline.
What do you want with your career? But I don't want it to be just that. I also have a knack for helping other people with their stories. So, in the future I see myself being a writer still but also being a producer. Not only trying to get my stories out there but help other people get their stories out there.
Especially, I don't know if this might go off track, but especially amongst the black community. Minorities in general, our stories aren't represented and of course, you know, one of the reasons is because we don't have people in those positions that could get it going but also we haven't really been taught the art form, the craft of it all.
And that's something that I had to go through for years in order to get good at it. Not even great, but good at it. So, I wanna help other people with teaching the youth the art form of it all.
That way they're not just coming in because everybody wants to be a writer and just be like 'ah, you know, I got an idea! Everybody has an idea but it's all about the execution of it all. It's about looking at it, not only with the feeling and emotion of the art form but the science of it all and learning that and honing that craft. What are your hobbies? I like to work out. I like to spend quality time with my friends because they help me recharge my batteries.
Because this business Somedays your really high. Somedays you're really low. And they're the ones that really balance that out. So I always look for things that keeps a balance for me.
Whether it was good or bad because it takes a lot of commitment when it comes to writing a story and it's a lot of things along that way. If you return items from the order the credit will be reversed if the order value falls below the minimum required. I live in L. So, I'll just pop into their office and listen to them.
