WHY I WANT TO WRITE THIS BOOK
-Because I don’t know how else to make this new hour of material meaningful
-becuase maybe it can help other comedians (or creatives) to go forward even if they think what they have to say is unneccessary or that their point of view is redundant
-because it would be great to have something to keep me company on the road along with Jackie – something that is just MINE
-because I’d love to create something that isn’t dependent on my skill as a performer
-because it might be a great way to connect with other artists and maybe build my business in a new way- where I can be of support and connect with others as I get ollder
-because it would be an added form of passive income where I can live anywhere and I don’t have to travel
-because I LOVE BOOKS
The Older Artist- how to keep going – I’d like to share how to keep going when the money is still needed but the driving force to be “heard” has been more than sated.
How I work with fellow artists and with income decreasing and the embarrassment of making mistakes as a perfomrer and as a business owner
Being married and having a traveling business
Then ambition- honesty with what I am willing to do, what I have time and energy to do- rather than loioking at the prestige, fame or money
Doing something with creepy pressure from others (when something doesn’t seem like it’s yours anymore)
Working with others- i hate effort and compromise- not knowing what is important- what is compromise.
Juggling things daily with voiceover and developing the series and living in a new neighborhood and responsibilities and friendships and family and health
How can I help people- I dont’ know- I guess showing the process of writing material- how slow it is – having this feeling that I am a “hack” -I am doing very old material, shame. Lack of willingess to do short shows in LA.
I’d love to share the numbers too-I’d love to put in all of my spending- because that is hilarious to me too. I mean. Why not?
So I guess filling out the journal. I no longer have anything more to say about my own experience with mental illness- I’ve been stable for 7 years and it just isn’t something I’m that into anymore as a result of positive brain circumstances.
