I just put off working on ‘Highwaymen’ to write in my blog instead. It’s a good time to check in with myself. December 1st today. Wore my blazer with jeans and a grey t-shirt.
I need to do more to put myself out there. I have a feature film script that needs tweaking. I have the pilot episode for a tv series with a follow-up to come. 140 pages worth of stories. Gotta get them in more peoples’ hands, because there’s no guarantee the handful who have seen ‘em will help. At the very least, they’re my calling card as a writer.
I also will be assembling this blog into paperback form again in time for Christmas. Makes a nice present for friends and family. It’s a hellova great way for me to check in with myself… read a whole year’s worth of thoughts. What’s changed. What’s better. What’s worse. Who am I?
I’m already shuddering as I recollect earlier entries. Some things haven’t changed. I imagine 31 year-old Jazzy opening this book and reading my daily thoughts, twenty years into the future. These thoughts are the ultimate time capsule aren’t they Jazzy? How about whenever you read this, just give me a call and check in with me? Right now I’m sitting in the window on the 6th floor of the library at the U of R. Where are you?
Hopefully I’ll still be writing, still searching and still trying to figure it all out. Hopefully at least, I will have made some progress.
