I have a new obsession about 10 years late. The show 24 starring Kiefer Sutherland as a government agent for a fake branch of the government called CTU, which stands for Counter Terrorism Unit.

CTU isn't real of course and neither is the show but I'm really enjoying it. It's a thrill ride and I know I'm late to the party, but I'm so happy I found it on Netflix. It's addicting like nothing I've seen on television in a long time.

Kiefer Sutherland is the star of the show and he plays an Agent named, Jack Bauer. A wholly courageous bad ass who does what he feels is right, even when he's breaking the rules. I agree with that philosophy. I'd rather have you break the rules and do something "wrong", then always following orders blindly but never sticking your neck out for something you believe in.

Obviously, at the end of the day, it's a tv show and should be viewed as entertainment and this shouldn't be able to persuade you to do anything different in your actual real life.

I'm loving this show and I can't wait to see where it heads. And a side note for anyone that doesn't think writers matter: 24 is a show with a great cast and imaginative and unpredictable story lines. 

Proof positive what good writing can do for a show. 


Blog Rebooted

Failing at this blogging thing daily. Next week will be better.

Sometimes I have trouble focusing and lose track of what's happening.

In April of this year, myself and some fellow creatives I know, brainstormed and came up a creative challenge for ourselves called, JFDI Challenge, which stands for Just Fucking Do It.

I was a writer who while writes daily for her job, wasn't doing any in my personal life. And within 80% of copywriters there lurks a "real writer" wanting to get out and put their true passion to paper.

And so, I accepted the challenge and for 30 Days straight I submitted a new story or an edited redo of a previous story. Sometimes we just can't gain the perspective we need to do our art, till we step back.

As I suspected, when I started, my work was rusty and sentences weren't artsy or flowing. Sometimes they just sat upon the page like lead weights. But as the month progressed, I saw good raw materials, themes, and ideas worth exploring. And wasn't that the point?

Since the challenge has ended, the creative part of me that I really need to work on fostering every day lay dormant. Until today.

My new challenge is to blog again. Every day. I used to start every work day like this and while math isn't my forte, at the end of one year, 365 days of expression, story ideas, or just a two sentence blog will be awaiting me.

As the challenge name says: Just Fucking Do It.

Here we go.
