Hey, there: Welcome to my blog!
Okay, here’s the thing. I spent the last eighteen years in the emergency medical services field, and my sense of humor is…how should I put this…a little disturbed. It’s okay, though. There’s quite a few of us with a twisted sense of reality. I just want you know that some things you may see and hear in my blog could go against conventional norms. That being said (yes, that was my PSA, warning you to proceed with caution: the coffee is probably hot), I hope that you find the variety and abnormalities intriguing, funny, a little off, and (above all) worthy of revisiting (and…there’s the shameless plug, begging you to drive up my self-confidence with your continued viewing of my blog).
I heard a bit of writing advice, recently, that encouraged we writers to write about what makes you uncomfortable. While that can be taken a couple of different ways, it really made me think about what I want to write. It also makes me think if it makes me uncomfortable, it will probably make others uncomfortable, and there’s a big, wide world of like-minded sickos that may like to read what I’m writing. But, as I was sitting at my desk today, I realized that uncomfortable can mean more than squeamish (you know, like thinking about a spider dropping from the ceiling and down the back of your shirt, getting lost and biting his way out…you’re welcome), it can also mean something that you’re afraid of. That’s where one of my upcoming shorts is going to focus: on something I’m afraid of. No spoilers, though, other than to say that I nearly cried while I was laying it out in my mind.
I’m not sure what else I can tell you to expect from my blog. I don’t really know what to expect, myself. Joshua Millburn stated, in his video about blog creation, he believes there are two kinds of expression: Expressive and Communicative. I truly hope to be able to express myself, in both of these manners, using this blog. I am full of useless information that I’ll occasionally use to bore you, and I’ll also use this platform as a shameless plug for any and all work that I’m trying to drum-up (I know…I can’t wait, either!).
So, thanks, again, for stopping by. I’m looking forward to sharing a little with you and I hope to get some replies, as well.
You are very funny…disturbed…gallows…very dark humor…good fun!
Video was funny, very colorful and musical. And yes, as writers, sometimes we need to come out of comfort zone and write uncomfortable things. However, I will never write about a spider dropping down my shirt and eating its way out. Can we say EWWWWWWWW!!!!
Looking forward to reading your next blog.
