What’s Different About this Year

Last year, for my birthday, I did the comedy open mic at Fran’s. Some will argue that it wasn’t my best set, and to them I say, screw off.

It’s not to say that I don’t want feedback, but at the end of the day, I wasn’t really doing this for a living anyway. It would have been nice if it had turned out that way, but in the end, I just don’t think I’m cut out to get the big laughs.

If I do an open mic, it’s for me to have fun doing, and if I post it on Youtube, it is only within the spirit of sharing something that matters to me. People are free to like it or dislike it, but I truly don’t care one way or the other.

This year, however, with the exception of two books published, I just feel like I don’t have much to show for 2015. It feels like my birthday is the time to turn in the book report that I was assigned way back in January, and now I’m only barely finishing the first draft.

As to how this year has went, it’s been a mixed bag. All of my love goes out to my family and my friends, especially my parents, my siblings, the nephews and nieces, and John. I don’t want them to think I don’t appreciate them and what they bring into my life, but I want them to know that they are in my thoughts always and not just on this day of the year.

If I had one really solid wish, it would be an increase in book sales. Failing that, I think if I had one good opportunity to get my name out there and have it work out in my favor, that would be even better.
