How Mr. Long Found His Voice - RN 029

Once upon a time, I was the kind of artist with a million projects going on at one time, but never finishing any of them. After an eye opening text messaging session with a dear friend, that all changed and I resolved to finish my very first play, Mr. Long Said Nothing. It eventually saw the stage in the summer of 2013.

Last week, I received word that my second play, Friends Like you, was approved for a six show run at my local theatre in the summer of 2017.

Mr. Long's story began before I even knew my wife, but it was a game she played with her father that sparked the idea for a story. Here's how it all came about.

Porn Addiction - How I Battle It And You Can Too - RN 026

Don't let the noise of the road under my voice keep you from listening to this episode from start to finish. If you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction to pornography and want to win the battles, you need to listen to my story and my strategy. Porn addiction is a war that will be won a single battle at a time and although you may feel powerless against the temptations that come at you from everywhere, there is hope and you can win.

This episode is a tender subject for me as I battle temptation on a daily basis and I will lay it on the line in order to help even one person who might be seeking victory. It won't be easy and the arrows will always fly at you, but you have the power to turn things around and start fresh.

If you find this episode helpful, please share it. We're in this together and we're on a mission.

Permission To Change Your Mind - RN 025

Four stories of personal decisions that took my plans and turned them on their heels and why I'm okay with it:

* A new host for the Road Noise website

* Backing off my daily word count for the novel I'm writing

* My decision to resurrect The Everything Arts podcast INSTEAD OF creating The Artist Brainstorm podcast

* I changed my mind on the very topic of this episode at the last minute

For you, the decision may be more or less important than these, but sometimes we have difficulty allowing ourselves the flexibility of changing our minds once a plan has been made. So, I am giving you the permission to change your mind.
