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...

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...

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. ...

Pimping Sports for Blog Traffic

Tweet I wanted more traffic to my site, so I wrote this post about sports.  That’s what it takes.  Nobody really cares about my musings on pickles or art, but I drop the name Peyton Manning or something sports related and people start clicking.  I’m pretty sure anything NFL related get the highest traffic....

Did You See It?

Tweet Did you see it?  Tell me. Did you? Yeah, neither did I. But unlike other years, I actually did want to.  I truly thought about.   I thought about carving out a few hours to dabble in the Hollywood glitz and glamor of The Golden Globes.  I thought about dressing up in a tux...

20 Seconds of Courage

Tweet I took my daughter to see We Bought a Zoo the other night.  My wife and son had seen it the week before and really liked it, so on their recommendation we ventured out to the movies. As a film, it was good.  Not great, but very good.  I found myself teary-eyed a...

Are You Incredible?

Tweet My four year-old son is a big The Incredibles fan.  He dressed as Dash for Halloween and has worn the costume to my other son’s Christmas program and then shopping the other day.  And in the last two days, he’s racked up two more viewings of the movie. So file this one under...
