Writers Without Walls
Proudly Sponsored by Zirkels
Welcome to the official 1st edition of Writers Without Walls Publication. Which you can access and share across three different platforms.
Obviously, here on Substack
Also, here on Zirkels
And here on Medium
A couple of quick but exciting announcements.
** First, as you would have read in our introductory issue, JD was releasing his short stories on Readl. He has since been invited to be a guest speaker on their Twitter space this coming week, possibly the week after if a suitable time can’t be reached with everyone’s schedules and timezone considerations.
Follow these Twitter profiles for announcements. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear more.
**** EDIT ****
Twitter Space has been announced at 4 am Wednesday, Central Time.
** Second, we have been accepted into Nas.io beta communities launch. We plan to launch this coming week so keep an eye out for that announcement. This is exciting, as getting into this beta was a slim chance. They had thousands of applications, and we were accepted into the second round. As stated previously, we still plan to launch our community on Entre. This allows us to offer that next level. More will be made clear once we are ready to open the doors, so to speak.
A little background on Nas.io.
JD came across an NFT project called Curious Addy’s Trading Club around October last year. CATC was founded by Mai Akiyoshi and Ben Yu. The project’s core values instantly appealed to him. Based on education and providing tools built for NFTs and Web3, for free for the CATC community. They then founded Nas Academy as well as Nas.io communities. They have built HeyMint.xyz and Curious.xyz. A portfolio tracker. Established courses and partnerships with other NFT projects that bring value to their holders, such as Zenacademy. We believe this will be of great benefit to the community exploring web3.
The Writers Without Walls community will eventually be a gated community. Accessible by those that hold the NFT in their wallet (metamask). With benefits for holding that will come later. Everything will be made available to the community in Entre as well. There may be a subscription fee or a heavily discounted purchase price for the Entre community. We are here to support and educate first.
In the meantime, all are welcome, and you will be considered early adopters. This means when the NFT comes available, you will just need to pay a gas fee to receive the NFT. The NFT itself will be free for all early adopters.
We are very excited about the opportunities this will bring us all and look forward to seeing you in the community on the Nas.io app. You are welcome to join, but please remember that we are still setting things up and getting a feel for it ourselves. It will be invite-only for subscribers to this substack at the moment. Please contact JD for an invite.
Why Do We Need NFT Books?
Did you know that if you purchase a kindle book, you don’t actually own the book?
Many don’t realize this. And many that do, don’t care. They don’t realize the negative implications of this.
It’s not what you think it is. It is, in fact, the imposter.
A syndrome is a set of medical signs and symptoms which are correlated with each other and often associated with a particular disease or disorder. The word derives from the Greek σύνδρομον, meaning "concurrence". A syndrome is paired with a definite cause and becomes a disease.
So right off the bat, it's not a syndrome.

Late Legendary Musical Artist Prince Was a Web3 DeSo Visionary Before His Time
In 1991 when Prince released the soundtrack, Diamonds & Pearls, he had no idea he was setting the stage to become a WEB3 DeSo (Decentralized Social) Visionary.
Not only was this one of the best songs he ever recorded, but it was also a testament of what was to come. Take a listen with Amazon Music.

It doesn’t matter how rich or poor you are. It doesn’t matter how many degrees you have. It doesn’t matter which side of the political spectrum you inhabit.
Once you acquire a belief, it’s almost impossible for someone else to change your mind.
Psychologists call this Confirmation Bias, or the tendency to interpret new information as confirmation of your preexisting beliefs and opinions. It’s just a part of human nature, and we’re all guilty of letting this and other cognitive biases affect our decision making.
Not long ago I wrote a book titled “The 14 Myths of Modern Marketing” because I was so frustrated with the stupid beliefs that most people have regarding marketing. Almost everything we’ve been taught to believe about marketing works great for big corporations and totally sucks for the remaining 99% of businesses in the real world.
So, why am I telling you all of this?
