Okay, Let’s Do This


The only things worth learning are the things you learn after you know it all.

Harry S Truman, 33rd President of the United States, was born on this day in 1884. (died 1972)

So, pretty much that means anything after high school?

Asking for a friend.

I’ve done it now.

I have declared to the world that every morning I am asking myself “What are you writing today?”

It’s a great question.

Until you come to the realization that it’s a question that demands an answer.


No, not really.

Any given day I’m working on blog posts and the script. I will admit that the novel has gathered a bit of dust but that’s because I had to put it aside to work toward the completion of the script.

I’m also continuing to write my 1,000 words a day. Sometimes I write coherent sentences.

Sometimes I just vent. It’s in those times that I reach my word count more quickly.

And you get the benefit of my not using this space to vent. Most of the time.

There was a lot of venting going on last week over the health care bill. There was also a lot of hysteria and misinformation.

#fakenews, if you will.

Don’t get me wrong. From everything I’ve seen the bill is just another crap sandwich. But it’s not over. It will change a thousand times before it makes it through the Senate. If it does.

But let’s not talk about that.

Oh, I suppose I could write about that. And, I will admit that I have been tempted.

But no, let’s not write about that.

I have a full day at the office and plans for tonight. I’m not sure how much official writing I’ll get done.

By the time you read this I will have at least written my thousand words and hopefully will have tomorrow’s blog post completed.

Somewhere in here there’s a blog post, or perhaps a book, and a a video series, entitled, “How to work a full time job and build your writing career.”

It’s probably been written. I just don’t have time to read it.

But, I’m working on it. I’m writing. I’m making this happen.

You may be asking yourself a different question.

But, you should ask.

Maybe the question is where are you going?

On a somewhat different subject, my senior year of high school I lobbied for “The Theme from Mahogany” or “Do You Know Where You’re Going To?” to be our graduation theme.

It was voted down because there were some who didn’t want to end our high school career with a preposition.

That’s a true story.

What question are you asking today?
