Happy Fall, everyone! It's October, the air has a little chill to it, even if you're in Los Angeles, the baseball playoffs are under way and my Cubs just won the first game of the National League Division Series and I'm happy. For those of you who don't care about baseball, well... I'll keep my comments to myself and instead focus on why this podcast episode does have a connection to the changing of the seasons.
The holiday season is officially upon us and what naturally comes with the holiday season is a tendency to wish a little more, dream a little more, and reflect on what you have and what you don't. The healthy approach here is to not focus on the lack, but to focus on how to fill in the little gaps, those little empty spaces of your life, with what you want. And since this is a podcast on writing, and since you're listening right now, I can assume that you have the intention of being a working, full-time writer in this industry; to have your projects not only find representation and a champion, but to make it to the big or small screen. The comfort, for me anyway, when I think about this wish and intention to work as a full-time writer is in the knowing that we're all in this together. Even if you're already a full-time working writer, your intention is to keep it that way! So we're all in this together, and we all have the same wish, and like I said, the holiday season tends to bring about those hopes and wishes even more.
