Thursday Morning Coffee Club: 10/16/14

Cofee signHappy Thursday, Modern Philosophers!

You’ve been such a fun and supportive group of blog followers lately, that I thought I would reward you with a very rare Thursday Morning Coffee Club.  Can you feel the blog love I’m sending your way?

My Deep Thoughts are often muddled the morning after a taping of The Nite Show With Danny Cashman, as my mind is still in writer mode, but my body has to operate in worker drone setting.

I finally did something about that by taking off today.  Now, I can ease myself into the transition, and spend the day writing, relaxing, and still feeling like being a writer is the number one job in my life.

Do you deal with a similar inner conflict, Modern Philosophers?  Do you think of yourself as a writer first, but feel like that isn’t always the case because you need to report to a “real job” on a regular basis to help keep a roof over your head and food on the table?

That’s why I’m glad I’ve taken my first ever Writer’s Day.  I want to bask in the glow of the TV taping for a little while before I change out of my writing toga and put on the toga of a working stiff.  I want to spend the day at The House on the Hill rehashing last night’s festivities while also working on the new screenplay I’ve been ignoring because my life has just been so busy.

ThursdaySo I’m really loving this idea of the Thursday after a Nite Show taping being Writer’s Day.  It breaks up the week nicely, and it allows me to stay up late after the show because I’m always on a Writer’s High and there’s no way I can ever get to sleep at a decent hour.

What do you think about that idea, Modern Philosophers?  What do you do when you feel like you need to better honor the writing part of your life?  Do you set aside a certain time of day just for writing?

I need to run over to City Hall to register Zombie Car, and maybe while I’m there, I’ll see if I can get a few minutes with the Mayor.  Perhaps I can get him to officially declare today Writer’s Day.  After that, The Day of the Modern Philosopher can’t be too far behind!

Thank you for reading and supporting my blog, as you make me feel like a very successful writer.  You are a great group of Modern Philosophers, and I could never do this day after day without you.

Happy Writer’s Day!

  1. I write in the morning after my walk. My two dogs and I are gone for 11/2 to 2 hours–depending on conversations along the way. Some good story ideas come to me during that time–also some bizarre ones.

    Writer’s Day, that’s a heckuva good idea. Keep it up kid. You’re gonna’ go places. Now, get me a cup o’ Joe–the regular kind, not that foo-foo, flavored stuff. Don’t just stand there–go, go.

    Happy Writer’s Day!

  2. Happy Writer’s Day. I like the sound of that.
    I’m retired so no more schlepping to the office anymore. I proudly wear my pajamas to work now.
    😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

    My “real job” entails a lot of writing. It’s just a different kind of writing.

    I write every chance I get–unless I’m 2 brain cells away from comatose. Then I listen to radio broadcasts over the internet or a book on tape while laying on my 7 moving blankets with a many dogs and cats that can squeeze in next to me. 🙂
