I’ve got a busy night ahead of me, Modern Philosophers, writing monologue jokes for tomorrow’s special high school themed edition of The Nite Show, but I wanted to take a minute to write a post for the blog.
I’ve really enjoyed writing the blog lately, and I wanted to share that with you. Fairly recently, I was giving some serious thought to stepping away from the blog for a bit to focus on other projects.
Blogging wasn’t fun anymore, and it seemed like so much work just to get my writing out there in hopes of having it read. However, so many of you urged me not to put the blog on the back burner, and I decided to stick with it.
Last week ended up being a great week. I made an executive decision to stay away from the blog’s regular characters and ongoing mythology, and write some stand alone posts like I’d done when I first started this little adventure.
What a hoot! I especially enjoyed writing the dating tips posts. I took something that has been a big problem in my life, and turned it into laughs. If you haven’t read those posts, I strongly urge you to do so…they could save your life if you’re out there in the dating world!
I also enjoyed writing last night’s entry in my Sundays With Satan Short Story Series.
The Mother’s Day themed post, At Least He’s Not A Total Mother, had a unique twist to it that no one has mention yet in the comments. So maybe it’s not as cool as I thought it was, but it made the story a challenge to write.
It’s the first story in the series in which I don’t have a single line of dialogue. The Devil speaks every word in the tale, which wasn’t intended when I sat down to write it, but it just seemed like an interesting way to convey how difficult Mother’s Day is for me.
When writing is a challenge, I love it!
I even came up with another silly blog contest. Have you entered yet, Modern Philosophers? All the details are in Saturday’s Jump Start Your Brain post.
Perhaps my favorite writing news of the week, though, is that I finally started on the book I’ve been wanting to write! I was able to get 4000 words down on the page over the weekend, and I haven’t really even begun to tell the tale.
My plan is to turn it into a series of e-books, so I shall keep you posted.
Of course, now I need to turn my focus to writing monologue jokes for tomorrow’s taping of The Nite Show. Ideas have been popping into my head all day, so I’ve been scribbling notes on post-its and shoving them into my wallet.
I even stopped at the grocery store on the way home for some chocolate because I knew I was going to need the sugar rush, as I fully intend to spend some quality time cranking out the funny.
Right now, I really love being a writer, Modern Philosophers! Do you ever get on a roll like this where the ideas will just not stop flowing from your brain to the page!
Thanks, as always, for your support. I look forward to entertaining you with my silly stories not only on this blog, but also in e-books and up on the big screen!
