Somebody Nominate Mr. Stephen Colbert for...

... Best Ball-Bustin' Speech of '06. He just killed at the White House Correspondents' Dinner as the closing speaker. Download the video at --

Is Your Concept Better Than You?


Do your concept and the required execution of said concept overshadow your abilities? I’ve been pondering this predicament over and over again with my current incantation. I reconvened with my writer’s group (side note: a writer’s group happens to be a rare gathering, here in the sticks of North Florida) and everybody dug the concept, the writing, and the first thirty pages.

Yet, my skull, as thick as it is, can’t let through the fact that I might be doing the right thing with this script. In other words, I have a great concept and I don’t wanna fuck it up. Ya dig? I know I’m not the only one out there who’s feeling the downage of the hey-maybe-I’m-not-such-a-good-writer-after-all blues.

Damn… I’m not tring to play the pity card, here... errr, maybe I am… but I’m sure everybody has a slight downward-cycle during their writing process.

P.S. Buy the new TOOL album on Tuesday. It. Will. Rock.
