Crazy how much writing-love resides in prolific writers.

What daily writing needs physically

Disney Customer Service speaker on a mountain
Can you imagine telling Walt Disney, “That’ll never work.”
6-sec video.

What does daily writing need physically?

Daily writing needs a physically vibrant temple (and template). Daily writing needs strength, endurance, flexibility, “nutrition” (ideas), core (values), rest (thinking time), and motivation.

Prolific craziness

A 9/11 memorial tribute at local, small-town library. Sat here yesterday to conduct client calls.

Prolific craziness…

Writing without telling people, without social sharing buttons, without allowing commenting, without an email collection funnel – these things free the writer (me) from any obligation to make sense, to offer something “worth the reader’s time”, or any other obligation.

When you think of freedom, this is a perfect example.

Can we non-conform please?

Ok, some ideas for being non-conforming:

  • Short and sweet
  • Shorter than expected?
  • Sweeter than expected? (i don’t even know what that means)
  • Use video instead of text?
  • Use text instead of email?
  • Give a homework (72-hour) assignment?
  • Tell a joke (i’m funnier in person than online)
  • Tell a story (video)?
  • Show exclusive, personal, early days photos?
  • Make them apply in some way in order to get a second email/text?

Guessing it’s not obvious, but this playing on the blogs process is incredibly fun and exciting.

Practice makes you good at your work. Play is what turns your work into art.

Guessing that’s not obvious too.

You were born for this

Podcast episode summaries
An introduction to Jody Maberry by Lee Cockerell took 3.5 years to finally become an agreement to record a podcast.

A random phone call one day at Disney changed my life.

That call led to discovering i was born to teach. At 40, in 1999.

A random “Great Recession of 2008” changed my life too. Pushing 50 years old no less.

The uncomfortable 2008 Disney layoffs (i wasn’t let go) convinced me to start a business, as an idle-but-ready-to-go Plan-B should there ever be another recession.

There was another layoff, and dang if it wasn’t the mother of all layoffs, in 2020.

Covid-19, you bastard, you cost 30,000+ wonderful Disney Cast Members their jobs in 2020.

Note: The business i founded in 2009 unexpectedly positioned me to retire after 30 years with Disney, in 2014.
