True fact of truth.
I’ve watched a lot of “Scandal” and I’d like a pantsuit.
Today Twin Peaks turns 24. Time to drink ALL the cups of coffee.
Special Agent Cooper, the night belongs to you.
My time at the Tonight Show has come to a close! Soon I will transition to my new job as a promo writer at MTV. I have been so lucky to work for such an amazing production with such wonderful people (and for the best boss EVER), especially at a very exciting time for the show. I will miss TSJF very much, but look forward to a new chapter.
Time to celebrate bittersweet endings and new beginnings by continuing to binge watch “My Strange Addiction” as I have been doing for the past 4 hours, because that’s the type of adult I am.
My parents have been married 30 years today.
Congrats to ‘em!
Hey friends, I made a video about how awful dating is!
Creative writing involves a deliberate rejection of practicality: To get into the right mood for writing requires short-circuiting our usual calculations of profit and loss, since there is nothing as gratuitous as a poem or story. Waste, as the poet said, is of the essence of the scheme. On a train, time and place are suspended in the name of a long-term goal, getting from one place to another; take away that goal and you have as close to a zone of pure freedom as you are likely to find anywhere in the twenty-first century.
The Amtrak Writers Residency is just so cool. Constant movement does not equate to constant connection, because constant connection fosters attention deficit whereas movement kind of lulls you down. I think every writer secretly wants to live on a desert island with no wi-fi connection, and i think if that were possible we’d have a lot more writers actually writing, but if we can’t all have desert islands a train sounds good.
