Guys! This is the thing I did! Well, it’s part 1. I’ll post part 2 soon!
I am so fucking excited that I was asked to do this! It was so much fun, and a great conversation. A HUGE thank you to Matt Wayman for having me please make sure to check out all the great of Word with Wayman and see what The Agency is up to around Denver. I can tell you from experience that they put on some really fun shows.
And in case you missed it, make sure to read my Open Letter to Denver Comics: Past, Present, and Future.
Words With Wayman- Ep. 61 w/ writer/badass Whitney
I did something yesterday, which I will be able to share with all of you very soon. I learned some stuff while doing this thing:
1) The bar for being a writer is very low (thanks, Internet), so if people are going to call me a writer, I better step up my game. I never studied journalism or English in school, and I’ve only done a few incredibly basic writing jobs in my life. I am far from excellent at this, but I really really want to be an excellent and interesting blogger. That is a perplexing statement, I realize.
2) There is a reason I use the Internet as my platform. Coherently formulating thoughts while talking to another human is not my strong suit. I like barriers. Again, thanks Internet.
3) I’ve really done a lot of random shit in my life, and I have no idea which thing I’ll end up sticking with. I might even try something else altogether. Who knows?
4) In order to make this interesting and turn it into a conversation instead of a spewing of my idiotic thoughts, that for some reason, a few people have taken an interest in, I need a favor from all of you. If you like anything you read here, please tell a friend or five. Please tell me what you’re interested in. What do you want to hear about? What do you want to know about me? (Keep it non-weird please). This is something I started in order to give myself an outlet to say whatever I want and to feel a little less restricted, but if I can make someone’s day better, that makes it completely worth it. I might bitch about stuff a lot, but I really am a nice person.
Now, while you wait for the thing I did, here’s a four minute mashup of cat videos.
