Things to Come

Things to Come

Hi guys. I’m sorry, but this weeks Wednesday post is going to be a bit different than normal. My original plan was to release a piece of memoir today, but I simply didn’t have enough time to write it. Life got in the way. It seems to go that way sometimes. Responsibilities have a knack for interrupting passions. In a sense that’s the whole reason I started this blog. I want my responsibilities and passions to coincide.

That’s why i quit my last job. I wish I did it in a more respectful way, but that’s a long story… Longish… Well longer than I want to get into at this specific point in time. I mean I gave two weeks notice, but there was this whole point thing, and I was sick. I probably could have toughed it out a few more days, but I called in. And so it goes. Mhm well that is basically the story.

Moving right along. I quit the job because I was unhappy. I didn’t want to be a front desk clerk. What I want is to make a living writing and that is why I started this blog. I want to work as hard as possible at one thing, and see what happens - as inspired by Jordan B. Peterson.

This is who I am. I am the man who goes with out sleep to make sure his blog is updated on time even though a bonus post was released on Sunday. I am the man who gets out of bed and spends 10 hours driving around town until his knees hurt just so he can have more time to type. I am the man who refused to die even when 99% of his mind was more afraid of life than death. I am the man who wrote his way out of suicide. I am the man who overcame alcoholism and drug addiction. I am the man who finally accepted help. I am the man who loves himself.

I am aware that not all of this makes sense, but that’s how I write. Phrases like: wrote his way out of suicide, make no sense to you. At least not yet. It will though, in time. Once the SSB is revealed it will, but I can’t release that yet. It needs the background first. The first portion of that background is in the process of being rolled out right now. You may recognize it as, It Happened in Iowa.

See, IHI is more than a collection of things I once wrote; it’s the first portion in the story of how I survived myself. It is going to continue to be released at a rate of two parts per month. If all goes according to plan there is a possibility of having access to it and some bonus content a bit earlier. After, that project I will divert my energy into a series bridging the gap between Iowa and SSB. Then, you know, SSB. BTW none of you will guess what SSB stands for… Just saying…

As far as the non-series content. I am currently working on a piece about working for - sorry, with - Doordash. Additionally, I’d like to do more gonzo reviews. I’m toying with the idea of writing one for Scott Pilgrim vs The World. I love that movie. Well, I don’t like how much Ramona resembles my ex, who was quite possibly a real life manic pixie dream girl.

I should write about the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope, and my love life… and current lack there of… and why that’s okay… I’m so tired. I have so much I want to write about and so many many distractions. Distractions like rent, and finding people to read the things I write (remember kids no matter what you do your real business is marketing).

Welp….

L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N

I should right about music…

and coffee…

I need to sleep now, so I can get up at 9 and fight for what I love.

(P.S. This is what I love, and I can’t wait to fight another day.)
