To get really good at something you have to do it every day. This is one of hundreds of reasons I failed as a writer. Zero self-discipline. The legendary Alan Moore once said that you have to treat writing like your deity, and if you don’t worship it every day it will punish you.
Videos and film is where I learned storytelling. Trying to convert that into strictly the written word was like trying to change my hair color through the power of positive thinking. Wasn’t going to happen.
Now that I find myself driven to produce content on the regular, in a medium I am fluent in, the possibility of doing it every day is becoming a reality.
At the moment I do two episodes of 2 Non Critics a week and one Reggie Retro video. I’m looking to bump that up. The nature of my quick and dirty approach means I have much more time to create. It would be nice to do multiple videos a day, but I have a real job to worry about.
However, one video a day is well within the realm of possibility. There are four more days in the week, and I have three more videos planned.
One will be short clips of Rita Rosenbaum, the sister of my Reggie Retro character. She works best in quick snippets and would make for some hilarious scenes. Another series similar to 2 Non Critics about music. Also, a review series on Star Trek: Voyager called Wannabe Trekker.
I hope my deity is pleased…
With all this stuff going on, guess I’d better learn how to promote myself.
