Is this my best?
Hello Faithful Reader,
This blog is about what it is like to run The Murder Mystery Company. Here is a brief snap shot of my head right now.
As I sit here in my Dallas hotel room nearing 2 AM I wonder, if I've written my best script?
Do you ever wonder if you've done your best already?
I don't think anything I've written is brillant or horrible. I always feel like with a few more hours it'd be amazing. Then I have a few more hours and I watch Boardwalk Empire instead. I wonder if it's too scary to give one thing everything I've got?
As Seth Godin says, "Successful writing is mainly about shipping out a product." He's correct, I'm successful because I always ship, even if I could have done better with it.
I imagine this time in my life. This week with all my friends and I'll bang out this truly magical script. It won't feel rushed and it will be the best I have to offer. However, in 31 years, I've never found that week, but I've found a week for a lot of silly things that shouldn't matter or don't matter at all past the minute I'm done with it.
Tonight I sit here and wonder.
When will we all do our best?
I do that instead of revising a script.
Thanks for listening,
CEO The Murder Mystery Company
