Draw From Life

When writing it's best to draw on inner feelings and events. Not only can it heal the writer, but on a deep level others can relate.

Gary and I talk about drawing from within on this episode.

Be True and it Will Resonate

When you write, it's important to write from your heart. A story can be done over and over and each one will be like a copy of the other. But if you inject an inner story into the mix, it will stand on it's own. 

There may be a scene that's taboo, maybe the reader will be thinking, I'd never do that! when inside they know it's something they'd very well do. It resonates. 

It doesn't mean the character thinking the way they do is a bad person for doing what they do, or thinking the way they do, in a story. It only means the character is representing the fact that there are real people in this world that think differently from others. 

Maybe the character sees a homeless man and thinks a certain way. Maybe a homeless person attacked her mom as they were walking through a park when they were younger. Maybe they have a world view on the subject. 

Whatever the case may be, that character has a reason they react to the world you are creating the way they do. It's…

Been so Busy

It's been a bit busy after coming off of vacation. Work should be slowing a bit, but it's going faster because people are off, and it hasn't fully slowed. 

The next two weeks should be slower, just before school starts, but then it's full swing once again. 

Even so, I've been getting in more writing than ever. Over the vacation I've realized a few things and adjusted. 

Took a break from the videos, as well. More will be coming very soon. 

It may look like I'm on social media less, and that's probably because I have been. I do not want to just post things that aren't relevant. Plus, the time wasted on there is time I could be creating. 

The whole reason I had started social media is after listening to a podcast, and other sources, that said it is wise to get your voice out there and build up as you throw your stories out to the wild for consideration. 

I have gained great friends, but, as with everything else, there is always the possibility of negative in…

Driving Grinds Will's Gears

Gary and I talk about driving--the good and bad.

Party and Anxiety

I'm here, listening to a party outside the window in the room I'm staying in the mountains of Puerto Rico. It's my mother-in-law's birthday. 

I just finished the YouTube videos I do for the week and they've uploaded to the cloud and are waiting to be edited--one already pulled down to my phone. 

I want to go out, and I will, but I suffer from mild anxiety. 

It's like when I was a kid and went somewhere new, and by the end you were playing with your cousins and not wanting to leave. You never know what you'll miss. 

But I am going out there. I hear the live music playing now. A local singer who was hired.

My wife's uncle sent a Corona light into my room(with a lime/Lemmon, I love it! Haha). 

And then he sent another one. 

So I'm going to let these relax me a bit. 

I have to get over these phobeas. I mean, I am a bit ashamed I don't speak Spanish yet. I really should know it already. But like I said, I'll be going out. Just need to let the beer turn m…

Just Finished Recording More YouTube Videos

Just finished recording three new shows for YouTube with Gary Buller. Going to see how fast I edit these, being I'm still on vacation. 

Each show takes about four hours to do, from beginning to end, depending on how much effects and editing go into it. 

I try to make the shows shorter, as those are much easier to edit than, say, a fifteen or twenty minute episode. But the intro and moving segments around, and music yada yada, it takes time. 

I like how it's been coming out, the finished product looks pretty darn good, and I'm my own worst critic. But now we just need the eyes and comments to make it better. Maybe subjects people want us to discuss, ect. 

So if you get the chance and look at the channel, please leave a like and comment. And the most important thing, please subscribe. 

And if we struck a cord, please share the episode, as well. 

Okay, now I'm off to drink some coffee, maybe some seltzer, and edit these shows.
