It’s time! I’ve been in Chicago for a little over five years now, and I’ve been taking filmmaking, writing, acting, or improv classes just as long. I’ve read more books on film and television writing than I can remember, and I own even more than that; yet I have been terrible at making the time for myself to sit down and write on a daily basis. Today I’ve decided it’s time to shit or get off the pot, as people so eloquently say. I either need to start writing or admit defeat and move on to other pursuits, and I don’t like to admit defeat. When I get home from improv class today I will be cleaning out my office as best I can and giving myself the gift of a space in which to write, and as improv has taught me, it’s on me to accept and make use of that gift. I also need to remember that you can write anywhere, I’m writing this on the bus on my phone. Not ideal, but it works.
Starting now I am going use my Tumblr blog to post daily updates about my progress. I know there may be days where I don’t make much progress, but I don’t ever want to go more than one day without writing again, and I hope my social network friends will find this journey interesting enough to call me out on any lapses in updates. – Read on Path.
