On Why

As an Associate Creative Director in Copywriting at a Social Media Agency, people often ask, “Do you have a blog?”

My answer, “no.”

“Why not?”

“Because when I’m not at work, I like to focus my writing time on screenplays, and I feel like a blog would take away from that.”

I’m tired of giving that answer.  I’m a comedy writer who “works in social media.”  It’s pretty embarrassing to not have a blog.  So here it is.  I plan on using it to keep me honest.  Primarily, I’ll focus on writing (both my progress and the craft in general,) creativity, and cooking, because I do a lot of it.

Earlier this week, I posted this note to myself on my fridge:

Why yes, yes I did.  And now, in print, my writing goals for 2012:

  1. Finish comedic screenplay about internet dating that I’ve been studiously ignoring for the past year
  2. Do the final revision on my dramatic screenplay
  3. Cut the dramatic script down to a trailer
  4. Fundraise for, and shoot, a trailer for dramatic script
  5. Write some other stuff (including, but not limited to, re-writing episodes of Princess Elleanora and the Muddy Sneakers)

Here we go!
