So last week we looked at Ninja Brian, the YouTube comedy rock dude who has a PhD in theoretical physics and would rather play the piano along to dick jokes than teach. (Go Brian!) But I also promised that this week we'd look at Dan Avidan/Danny Sexbang, the other half of the band. Now, I … Continue reading Follow Your Dreams, pt. 2
(Author's note: I've just come to the realization that today is actually Dan Avidan's birthday - someone who I'm going to mention throughout the course of this post, and then address again next week. So happy birthday to you, Dan! Thank you for the inspiration, the laughs, and the sweet sweet NSP dreams. Best wishes … Continue reading Follow Your Dreams Pt. 1

It was hard to get back into the habit of writing these blogs for this week. I didn't put up my weight … Continue reading Inspiration Wednesday: Ugh, Do I Have To?
Kudos if anyone gets the quote in the title before I explain it. ...I'll give you a moment to think. Hit the "read more" after you've given up. I make absolutely no excuses about being obsessed with characters and their development. Even more so, I am fascinated with relationships and how characters get them into … Continue reading Inspiration Wednesday: Drinks All Around!
I've done a lot of talking about how to personally inspire ourselves, and who knows, maybe I'll come back to that. But right now, I'd like to bring it back to what we're actually all here to do: write. (I know, gasp! What?! Writing?! Who gave me the authority?!?) And I know I'm a little … Continue reading Inspiration Wednesday: What to Wear, What to Wear…
