I strive to offer my experiences as an independent creator with the perspective of a veteran beginner. Whenever I can teach or share, I write an article for my blog, Scribtotum.
scrihb-tote-um (Noun): A portmanteau combining the words “scribe” (writer) and “totum” (roughly Latin for “the whole thing”). Borrowed / adapted from the word “factotum” (one who does all kinds of work) to mean “one who writes on all kinds of subject matter.”
