This podcast revolves around me and my goal to become an established author and screenplay writer. I currently blog my adventures on my website : vernonwrites.com , and have recently started this podcast to verbally connect with my audience.

In my podcasts, I am going to share everyday epiphanies and life lessons I have learned on my journey and hopefully inspire others, as well as myself, in the process. In some of my episodes, I am going to read personally selected writings and share a style that I have spent years trying to master.

I look forward to the adventures that await us!

    Don't Look Down

    Don't Look Down

    In this podcast, I dig into the premise of the phrase "Don't Look Down" and how it applies to me and my current struggle - getting second and third degree burns on my foot and having to get a skin graft to repair the damage. I not only give eye witness testimony of what I encountered in the days following my accident, but I also discuss the mental, physical, and spiritual battle that exists with this type of injury.

    What does one do when faced with pain and the unknown that we call the future? Do you give up? Do you keep climbing your mountain? Do you question yourself? Do you reflect? Do you become angry? Do you let fear creep in? Do you remain confident?

    After going through a traumatic event, some people would say they are no longer the same person they were before. Some would say they are a better version of what they used to be. Some might confess to being the same person.

    I know where I stand and am proud to know, when I'm nervous about being at a high, foreign elevation, all I really need to do is stare at the incredible view in front of me and not do the one thing that my body tempts me into doing - looking down. From here on out, I have to promise myself to keep my line of sight facing forward so it is easier for me to take that first step and walk.

    The lesson was simple and it was there, in front of me, the entire time.

    Going Forward

    Going Forward

    In this episode, I talk about the New Year 2022 and all of the things in between.

    Where does life have you right now? Using your mirrors to look behind you? Stuck in neutral while you check your gauges and GPS? Or looking forward at the undiscovered landscape that lies in the distance?

    Life is not always easy (especially this day and age), and we need to be thankful for good health and the friends and family that get us through our tough spots. We are in this journey together, and we can do great things if we allow ourselves to.

    Every human being on this earth is answered in three simple forms: 'Yes', 'No', and 'Wait'. 

    Which one is hardest for you to hear and digest?

    I know what mine is!

    Do you?

    My Short Film Premiere

    My Short Film Premiere

    In this podcast, I discuss a somewhat big, personal, artistic occurrence that is to take place this week - the premiere of my short film. 

    The title is Upside Down, and it revolves around the one thing that connects all of us - that thing being loss. Whether we have lost a piece of ourselves or a tangible piece of something out "there", we have all experienced this occurrence because it does not discriminate race, religion, orientation, political status, or socio-economic status. 

    Loss knows no boundaries, and this film is going to depict this in its most raw and natural form.  

    Come, have a listen, and enjoy me expressing the excitement, the anxiousness, the nostalgia, of this peculiar position as I continue forward on my non-linear journey through time and space.

    The time is not now. Quit believing that lie. The time was yesterday!

    I'm Not Happy

    I'm Not Happy

    Have you ever known someone who continuously said, "I'm Not Happy", and did nothing to change their situational mindset? Have you ever known someone who said that phrase of inevitable doom and took steps to transform their life into something better and more meaningful? Now, the three point three million dollar question - have you ever been, or currently are, one of those two people?

    In my new podcast, "I'm Not Happy", we dissect this declarative occurrence and figure out the whys, whens, whos, and whats of being in a temporal funk of the such. 

    Only one solution exists.

    Considering life is short and time is not being sold on shelves quite yet, what can we do to get to where we need to be so we can finally be happy?

    Dreamcatchers

    Dreamcatchers

    To start off Season 2 of my new podcasting venture, I tell the listener what we are headed for this time around. Season 2 is going to take a different direction than Season 1, and I look forward to the journey that we are going to embark on as our scenery changes for this leg of the road trip. 

    I labeled this episode "Dreamcatchers" because I wanted to talk about dreams, people, and the chase that goes into making them a reality. Why do dreams come true? Why do dreams not come true? Why do failed dreams sometimes lead to something better than what we were chasing before? Where do we find the balance considering the world wants to steal as much as it can from us, now, more than it ever has?

    After listening to "Dreamcatchers", I hope all of you realize that you are not in this fight alone - the fight of pursuing your dreams with relentless dedication and focus until they manifest into the greatest thing that any person could ever ask for - validation - and the magical word you hear when you finally make it,

    "Congratulations!" 

    Listen to "Dreamcatchers" and pass it along. You got this. Always have, from the day you were born into this puzzle that we are all trying to put together - the puzzle of life!

    Make A Night Out

    Make A Night Out

    In my last podcast of Season 1, "Make A Night Out", we discuss an instance when you conjure up that one scene from a movie and proceed to live it out with someone else who desires the same perfection. 

    We are introduced to the narrator, a man who is bored at home, lounging on his couch while surfing a dating app. An idea shoots through his head to wake him out of his temporary slumber. His idea - visit the hottest club in town on the hottest night of the week and live out a scenario he has only seen on television or in the movies. To add to the complexity of the situation, the narrator wants to dive into this Hollywood dream scene with someone who catches his eye and never lets it go.

    Does he succeed in fulfilling his wildest fantasy or does it merely slip through his fingers like his life is currently doing with each second he wastes on his couch?

    There's only way to find out.

    Listen to, "Make A Night Out!"
