How does one get what one desires? Observational data states one usually does so by putting oneself out there, as the saying goes, and working on no matter what obstacles smash one in the face.

Write all the time, read all you can, and hone your craft. If I want to better my situation and maybe do something I can be proud of now, when I'm ready to build some new happy memories, I can't pussyfoot around. No longer can I futz around.

Working on my stupid youtube videos isn't enough, I need to finish my stupid novel. And my short stories. But writing humor is utterly alien to me. It's my favorite genre and I study those who inspire me. But how do I make what I lived through funny? Abortion jokes are difficult to pull off.

Yes, that's my starting point and it's merely drama currently. It needs a pause. But where exactly? And where will the humor get its base? In dark humor or out of the presentation or a straight punchline?

That's the tough part of this new writing process. It's new. Strange. Alien. Etc.That's not exactly my best writing, but it's a start.
