Here is the first in a list of blogs of writers (etc.) that I have had the pleasure to spend some time with, whether it be in a class or in a bar or in the world.
Most (or all) of these links can be found in the blogroll to your right but I thought it would be nice to give shout outs where shout outs are due.
Comedienne and screenwriter Christina Walkinshaw’s Diary of a Stand Up Comic blog is something to keep you entertained and laughing. Here she details her travels while doing stand up shows around the world or mainly Ontario, but she used to live in L.A. so that has to mean something. And even if it doesn’t then check out her blog anyway. Who else is going to tell you about the “new” legal drinking age in Brantford, Ontario or how 3 cars a comedy show does make.
Oh and don’t let her sparse posting deter you…as she will (hopefully) definitely tell you it is simply a way to pay future homage to what she hopes her Oprah arms and leg hair will some day become.
I took a screenwriting class with Christina and we’ve been getting beers and trying to write ever since.
