My second full week of aiming to write something new every day (I know, unheard of)! Here’s some of the stuff I wrote for you to please enjoy!
This one started as a joke and ended up being something deeper. I always find the idea of fame, how someone becomes famous, and how fleeting/ephemeral that is to be fascinating, so I’m glad this ended up resonating a little more. As a nice bonus, Medium publication The Outtake picked it up to reprint, and did a really nice job of reformatting the whole thing so it’s way less bare bones.
I’m not even remotely joking when I say this is the most personal piece I’ve ever published on the Internet. It’s also a totally real, totally good recipe for mac and cheese!
I wrestled with whether this should have a less troll-y headline, but it stuck in my head from when I first had the idea for the essay, and I’m really bad at filtering that kind of thing out. Anyway, this deals with another idea I believe pretty strongly in, that valleys are as important as peaks. That’ll make more sense if you read the piece, probably. But it’s true.
Another fun piece for Tech Times, I had completely forgotten about Clark’s kryptonite glasses phase.
Can you tell that I didn’t know what to write about today? I didn’t, so instead I ended up writing about the writer’s block breaking technique I’ve taught in dozens of sketch comedy classes. It really works, too.
