I've always loved the '40s romantic comedies and the idea of those mistaken identities and lovers' misunderstandings.
Putting words on paper regularly is part of the necessary discipline of writing. A journal is a great way to do that.
I really love writing comedy. Writing romantic comedy is even nicer because you get to write about how insane we all act when we're falling in love.
Many times, what people call 'writer's block' is the confusion that happens when a writer has a great idea, but their writing skill is not up to the task of putting that idea down on paper. I think that learning the craft of writing is critical.
As African-Americans, we often spend our time and energy blaming other people for the problems we see around us.
