Saturday Open Thread

Time to discuss WHATEVER’S ON YOUR MIND.

I’ve got vacation on the brain, first because it’s Spring Break and a lot of people I know are either traveling or getting back from travel or preparing to travel, and second because I just started planning my own vacation for this summer. (More on this next week. It ties into the creative practice, I promise.)

So chat about travel, or… whatever you’d like! ❤️

Saturday Open Thread

It’s the Saturday Open Thread! Let’s discuss LITERALLY ANYTHING!

Here’s what’s on my mind right now: I have, as of late, read at least ten different “how to complete big creative projects” or “how to be financially independent” or “how to live a good life” books, and although the details in each book are all slightly different, they all come down to two basic tenets:

PRIORITIES

and

BOUNDARIES.

Know what you want, and don’t let all the other people and commercials and cultural influences that claim you should want something different get in the way.

Discuss.

LOOK I KNOW I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH READERS YET TO DO A FOR-REAL OPEN THREAD

DRESS FOR THE BLOG YOU WANT

LET’S GO

Since it’s an open thread, you can discuss whatever you’d like — but if you’d like a prompt, I’d suggest watching the latest Lessons from the Screenplay video:

Michael Tucker always makes excellent points about storytelling, and in this video he reminds us that every scene is about desire — that is, even if the purpose of the scene is to give a piece of exposition or whatever, the characters still need to be going after what they want.

It was exactly what I needed to hear, at this point in the NEXT BOOK draft.
