About four and a half hours ago, I arrived at my parents’ house in Birmingham. I’ll be looking for my own apartment here later on this week. I expect to keep this blog more up to date from here on out. I have a LOT of creative projects that I plan to get started on now that I have no excuse not to.
The first thing on the agenda is to get the Southside Fiction Writing Workshop off the ground. I want to use my experience as a writer and workshop leader to help other people in the area to hone their fiction writing skills and also to access the parts of their subconscience that lead to inspiration. I think this is a little like group therapy, and I like that. I believe this is one of the clearest ways that I can use whatever talents I have to actually help people recognize their own potential and be better versions of themselves.
Now if I can just get a few people to sign up…
If you are in the Birmingham area, spread the word.
Other things I’d like to start here, which I’ll talk about in more detail later:
- A literary magazine
- A 3- or 4-piece indie rock band to do new and old songs a la Eurotoaster
- An acoustic band to do new and old songs a la the Abdo Men
- A new version of the Dixieland Space Orchestra
Any of my Birmingham friends that want to help out with any of these things, get in touch!
