I know I’m not the only one out there who creates stuff and has a crippling fear that I am not good enough to be even attempting to do what it is I want to be doing. As a matter of fact I don’t even feel like I’m good enough to write a blog about anything. I have tried maintaining a blog before, but I always tried too hard to make it about something marketable and I lost my voice in the process. I want to be able to write about whatever I want to write about and hope someone reads it and takes something useful away from it.
The goal I’m setting out for myself here is to write something and post it every Tuesday. Why Tuesday? Because why not Tuesday? Mondays naturally have a bad reputation. Wednesdays are sexy and I’m just not that sexy. Thursday is too close to the weekend that any potential readers are most likely already drunk and Friday through Sunday...I’m most likely drunk.
This blog will contain ramblings about film, TV, writing, and stuff like that, but will also serve as a sort of therapy for me to get all the negative thoughts out about my own work and maybe you can find something in my problems that help you with yours. Because let’s be honest. You’re a mess. You may not realize it now, but after reading my blog you will come to know the true darkness that lives inside you and you’ll hate everything and everyone like I do and through that burst forth as a fiery Phoenix to destroy all with your eventual greatness!
Okay, I may have gone a little overboard there. Truth is I just want to write and create cool shit. This blog will be the catalyst for me to stop playing The Witcher 3 for five hours a night followed by trying to catch up on The X-Files on Netflix because as a kid I thought it was a scary show that would give me nightmares. Honestly, after starting the series the amount of nightmares I have are far less than expected. Clearly I’ve been afraid of good things my whole life.
So, yeah. There it is. The ramblings of an idiot for your pleasure.
(Initials at the end of a blog post just look cooler than writing my full name.)
