Ira once said that to be good at something, you’ve got to trudge through being bad at it for a while. You’ve gotta pay to play. And that’s fine and all, but I’m an impatient person. I thought if could tell one story a week for a year, give myself some rules and a deadline, maybe I could close the gap that he was talking about a little faster.
So I spent the next year doing just that. I told everyone I knew that I wanted to be a better storyteller, and I ended up better. A better storyteller, a better friend, a better person.
One video goes live every Friday at noon.
One in five videos must include an original score.
I may work ahead but not behind.
All must tell a story.
Living and working in Minneapolis, riding my bike when I can, listening to podcasts, talking at a higher volume than necessary, shooting bikes, fashion, and music, making shit happen with some of the best people, avoiding my relatives on Facebook, forgetting my wallet somewhere, trying not to stress out about all the great television I’m not watching, professional devils advocate.
