God’s Will

Why Do I write? No, Really, WHY?*

I wonder sometimes why exactly it is that I write. Why do I spend countless hours in front of the computer stringing words together?

Why do I sit up for hours after my family has gone to bed or rise hours before they wake to get thoughts and ideas down on paper – or more recently – into some digital format?

In God We Trust (Do We ?).

I often wonder how many times a day God looks down on me and shakes his head in haughty derision. – Probably, none or a million, but definitely one of the two.

I also wonder, at those times when he sees that I “get it” does he start jumping up and down like a father that just watched his son score a touchdown to win the game, only to be befuddled as to why I do not use my new found knowledge or as I am told Lombardi said, “…act like you’ve been there before”?

Small Beginnings Are Still Beginnings

I am not going to lie, I am nervous about attempting another Nanowrimo. For all the reasons I am nervous about being or even,  – calling myself a writer; I don’t feel qualified. Who am I to say that about myself? How dare I elevate myself to such a lofty place? Writer? You? “Get outa here kid, you go no future.”

No Idea What I Am Doing

Well, I’M BACK!!!!

Hmmm, that was anticlimactic.

If you’re reading this, and you must be, then you’re clearly in the right place.

Eyes OFF Me!

WhYelling Marine DI - From Business Insideren I was at Parris Island becoming a Marine, any time our Drill Instructors wanted our undivided attention they yelled.

Well – they must have wanted our attention a lot – because they yelled…

A LOT!

DO ANY MIC ANY TIME ANY WHERE

open-mic-nightGetting started in comedy is the hardest part of getting started in comedy.

Huh?

Yeah – you read that correctly. Starting anything new is always the hardest part but with comedy there are so many variables – you have to know where to go, who to know, how to write, courage to get on stage – sometimes that equates to stupidity – and the list goes on but the absolute hardest part of getting into this business is finding stage time.

WAY Out Of My Comfort Zone!

I got this off the internets - thank you internets.

Ever had the Pizza Hut P’Zone? If not I am super sorry. It was a delicious masterpiece of pizza-y goodness. You can get a decent calzone from just about any pizza place but the P”Zone was a zone I could easily get into.

Other zones? Not so much.

Comedy Workshops (Not A Waste of Time)

I know there are tons of opinions about the necessity of, need for, quality and usefulness of comedy classes. I happen to be in favor.

Anytime someone wants to help me out with a new way to look at something or change the way I think (Romans 2:12) or anything that gets me closer to my goal of doing comedy full time – I WILL LISTEN!

<— THAT FACE.

That face completely sums up my feelings this morning when I woke up and realized that I broke the chain.

That’s right – I BROKE THE CHAIN!

The Writing Is The Hardest Part

I try writing every day – I am a firm believer in the Seinfeldian – DON’T BREAK THE CHAIN – train of thought.

In 2014 I frequently used the hashtag – #dontbreakthechain for motivation and encouragement to me fellow writers.
