I’m doing this one a little differently because today’s taping of The Nite Show With Danny Cashman takes place at the Gracie Theatre at 2:30. Danny is doing a special high school themed edition of the show, and I can’t be late because I do not want to get detention!
I started off my Writer’s Day in ideal fashion. I reached for the laptop and wrote several new monologue jokes without even getting out of bed. Don’t you just love modern technology?
It’s been so much fun writing high school themed jokes, and I hope Danny uses several of them. While I did not have a horrible high school experience, seeing as how I went to an all boys’ Jesuit school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, I still had plenty of memories from that time in my life to draw upon for these jokes.
And the best part of it all is that Danny is the one who actually has to tell them, so it will seem like my embarrassing experiences were actually his.
I haven’t wasted the day waiting for the taping. I have been hard at work on that book I’ve mentioned. My sweet blogger friend Emma was patient enough to walk me through setting up the proper format on my laptop for an e-book. Thank you, Emma.
Once I stopped being Mr. Computer Incompetent, I wrote about 1200 words, bringing me past the 5000 word mark. I’ve got the next few chapters already worked out in my head, so hopefully, I will get even more down on the page tonight.
I did swap my usual pre-show meal of Little Caesar’s Pizza for Chinese food, and I think that was an excellent call. Sometimes, a guy is just in the mood for sesame chicken.
There’s a helpful little button over in the right margin to help with the process.
Happy Writer’s Day! Talk to you again after the show!
That is, if I don’t have to stay after to help finish up the yearbook..
