Reaching For It
Creatively, I have always been a champion of diving in head first and going for it; I hate seeing a good concept wasted because someone didn't want to put in the extra effort it would take to really bring it to where it needed to go. I also hate being a hypocrate, so I don't want my own stuff to be half hearted either.
On top of that I have all the usual day to day that everyone has- friends and family, the Mets, watching The Dark Knight again...
So, to kick my writing into high gear, I had to put off my blog for a bit. I am happy to say that I am almost caught up with the backlog, and you'll be seeing me here alot more in days to come.
I'll make it worth your time...

Watch Where You Step
When I am doing a convention, for example, since I am away from home and out and about for upwards of 12 hours a day or more, there isn't much time to think about anything but being in the moment. Planning, however, is a daunting task... Figuring out hotels, flights, buses, inventories, time management and a host of other details is too much like work for a creative person to make them happy about it.
It's very important, though.
Proverbs 21 and verse 5 says "The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty."
I could make a snappy comment about now, but I have plans to make instead.

Come As You Are
The other thing I am finding more and move groovin about Kurt as time goes by, is that he was really and truly about speaking something rather than fame. I can go all yadda-yadda at this point about how maybe he was too much Daniel Johnston and that he couldn't take it and blah-ze-blah...
