Tweet It’s never a good thing to ignore your blog for two months because your traffic goes down the tubes. But that’s what I had to do. As I wrote almost ten months ago, I decided to jump into the political arena and run for Congress.  “How’d that go?” you ask.  As well as...

My Blog Will Miss You Peyton Manning

Tweet Just because Peyton Manning is taking his game to a new team, I pledge that it will not stop me from occasionally making a few posts mentioning “his greatness” just to increase my blog traffic. Let’s face it.  Just like Peyton Manning lifted the Colts as well as the NFL to greater heights,...

There’s No Such Thing as Failure

February 26, 2012

Tweet But there is such a thing as semantics.  Words mean things.  But we try and attribute new meaning to words so they don’t sound so bad, or we try and frame them in a more positive manner.  The word failure is one of these words. I just wrote a post about allowing ourselves...

Failure is the Only Option

Failure is the Only Option

Tweet Our schools have forgotten to teach kids how to fail. They are too busy scaring our kids into getting A’s and keeping a 4.0 GPA that our kids aren’t willing to meet failure face to face. I was a mediocre student in elementary school.  In junior high I figured out the system and...

Resistance, Fear, and Art

Tweet As I read through The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, I’m occasionally compelled to share some of his wisdom.  The latest entry I read was titled “Resistance and Fear.”  I’ve written about fear a few times (20 Seconds & Not and Option & Lizard Brain) on this blog, so it’s nice to...

A Quote for All Artists

A Quote for All Artists

Tweet Self-doubt can be an ally.  This is because it serves as an indicator of aspiration. It reflects love, love of something we dream of doing, and desire, and desire to do it.  If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends), “Am I really a writer?  Am I really an artist?” chances are...

What Time is it?

January 30, 2012

Tweet At least one time everyday, I hear that question.  “What time is it?”  In the past, I would generally look at my watch or the clock on the microwave and call out the answer.  Seems pretty logical right? Lately though, whenever that question is asked, my four year old will holler, “Adventure Time!”...

6 Steps to Writing Your First Sitcom Spec Script

Tweet Writing a sitcom looks pretty easy, doesn’t it?  Twenty-five minutes of families or hipster friends sharing witty banter amidst getting themselves into sticky situations that faintly mirror real life.  How can that be hard?  In fact it is very hard, and may be arguably the hardest writing around.  Why?  Because not only do...

10 Tips on Writing a Sitcom

January 21, 2012

Tweet While many of the sitcoms you’ve seen look like they could have been written by a monkey with a typewriter, it goes to show that sitcom writing may actually be the most difficult writing style in existence. Why? Well, not only do you have to know how to write a script which means...

Steal This Post

Steal This Post

Tweet Go ahead.  Take it.  Use it however you want.  I give you permission to put on your eye patch, peg leg, and parrot and pirate away. I’m not afraid of my work being stolen.  Why?  Not because it won’t happen, but because it will and there’s not much anyone can do about it. ...
