[Career Story] Words Mean Nothing I

Words mean nothing, which is funny coming from an individual that wants to be a professional writer. The problem with words is that people hide behind them. Instead of taking direct action, people instead hide behind implication and strict definitions. I’ve noticed the biggest factor determining whether someone will succeed or fail in their professional career depends not on what that person says, rather, what that person does. Here are five examples of my actions.

[Rowing Machine] 2018: Week 06 {2XX}

In ten years, I could see myself becoming substantially healthier. Especially if I expand upon my current exercise routine with more than just two 5-minute sets, and hold steady on my diet restrictions (there’s only one restriction: limited or no greasy foods), then the sky’s the limit. It’d be cool seeing the elaborate shots, props I’d build, and other ways I’d be using my increased fitness capabilities to tell more interesting stories in 2028. Until then…

[Open Letter] In Ten Years VI

In ten years, how will writing change? I imagine, firstly, we’ll be able to write more efficiently. I wrote this thought on my smartphone while waiting for an oil change, this before entering thrift store, this after not finding anything, and returned to my computer for this final draft. That flexibility in 2008 would have been great! How might that look in 2028? Let’s ask ourselves, via this open letter, how we can build better writing tools!

[Fiction Practice] In Ten Years V

“In ten years of working with The Consulting Agency, five as director of Human Resources, the part that never gets easier is determining the root cause of behavioral issues like what happened to you, Sam. We- I’m sorry that I couldn’t guide Steve toward polite and professional standards. Please accept my deepest apology.”
“Oh, no, it’s OK, Addison. I know you’re doing your best.”
Sam’s boss Linda chuckled, “you at least owe her a promotion.”

[The Story] In Ten Years IV

In ten years, will these minifigures from “The Story” be sold in mass production like M.U.S.C.L.E. minifigures or Stranger Things toys? While not for financial or egotistical reasons, is that sort of widespread appeal possible for main characters John (left) and Trishna (right)? That ambition involves writing the best story I can, while also figuring out the right angle to get people to become interested in reading an ambitious novel. Will it happen? …In 20 years?

[Sober Living] In Ten Years III

In ten years, how will sobriety look? Not just mine, but our scientific understanding of addiction? We have antidepressants, anti-anxieties, antipsychotics, and SSRIs to potentially destroy our free-will to dampen our emotions. How about something less extreme? Will we have a pill addressing only the physical reactions to stress… possibly causing addiction? Will stories of insobriety still weigh me, and everyone, down? Will polite society become more accepting? Will we see sobriety root cause analysis?

[Applied Self-Confidence] In Ten Years II

In ten years, will I have this spider’s confidence? It stared right at me. To not be skittish around anyone I don’t fully know? To not feel embarrassed over the most minor, benign, and otherwise harmless social faux paus? The courage to talk to anyone? Compared to ten years ago, I do have more self-confidence, so I imagine in ten more years of practice, I’ll be closer. I have had glimpses of this spider’s confidence…
