Full disclosure, I stole that from Chuck Wendig, one of my authorial heroes, but you know what? It's true. Every setence, every story, every blog and every feature treatment is a new journey that no one has even taken before. Even a re-write is a journey that takes you down new paths to the same destination.
I write like I try to live my life. I plan with a map, but I bring a GPS so I can take a last minute detour because I have to see the bat caves that have been advertised on the freeway for the last half-mile.
Full disclosure: I stole that from Alton Brown, one of my culinary heroes.
UPDATE: Experience has taught me that I need to go full disclosure on this one too, but I'm afraid I don't have a Southern accent. I sound like I should read the weather. Think young Walter Cronkite.
Also, not a tree.
Shows: Yes. But I'm enjoying the summer lull to catch up on a bunch of stuff. Hannibal (fare the well, nightmare fuel), Star Wars: Clone Wars (the prequel stories I wish we had gotten), and the Marvel/DC superhero shows troika.
Movies: Yes to all, and Inside Out is one of the sweetest Pixar movies they've put out in a while. The way they depict our emotional lives is so inventive (and kind of accurate apparently?). The casting was comically perfect and its story is heartfelt enough to get me close to tears.
Music: Yes, although I'm really enjoying Nate Ruess' solo album, the Grand Romantic. Great Big Storm, obviously, but I also kind of like AHa.
Food: Yes, but lately I've been learning a lot more about wine. Full disclosure, I can talk a person's ear off about craft beer, but my wine knowledge is kind of limited beyond "red" and "white". I live in California, though, so it feels like it behooves me to actually know what I'm talking about.
Comics: Yes, but I just picked up Locke and Key on comixology for a song. Good for Joe Hill for getting out from under his father's shadow, ya know?
Books: Yes, but I'm finishing up The Child-Thief right now -- it's a real dark twist on the Peter Pan myth, with Peter as a wild-child of questionable morality fighting a war of survival using what are, essentially, child soldiers.
Games (board, video, tabletop RPGs, and otherwise): Yes, but these days? I'm getting through Assassin's Creed III. Parkour conspiracy historical tourism is my jam to begin with, but throw in some of founding of our great nation and I'm a happy man.
2. Podcasts and audible. The only way to do housework and navigate our fair city's traffic patterns.
3. Sunshine. I may love video games, but I've never been much of an indoors-only kid.
4. My cast-iron enameled dutch-oven (file under: cooking utensils I would grab if there were a fire).
5 and 6. I'll let you know when I figure it out. It's always best to leave a few spaces blank for emergencies.
I do have a habit of wondering what's going on in that building. Or in that empty field. What's the story behind a grave or a plaque or a piece of architecture that makes no sense. Writers. Always looking for stories around every corner.
Fridays aren't really a Netflix day for me. I do watch a lot of Netflix over the week though. Especially Sundays. Sundays are good documentary days.
Because I really want to hear about it.
