This is my writing guide. It used to live in my Google Keep but I’ve decided to make my style guide public for the moment because I’m interested in seeing how much transparency I can give you into my editorial process before someone abuses it and causes me to make it private.
I will update and change this guide constantly. These are not rules. They are my personal notes. I am not interested in feedback on this document or my application of this document to my videos. I’m trying to do something uniquely transparent that TV networks haven’t tried before…

Red my favorite color. I have 12 identical red shirts, 12 identical white shirts, and four identical black shirts. I do not wear the same shirt two days in a row. I wear the same shirt every day because I like red, I like the softness of the material, and I hate insignificant…
