Do you ever go to costume parties? Last fall I was invited by some friends from the university - no, not students - to attend a "Man Men" themed party. Everyone was to dress up like a character from the show (or at least that general era).
I was familiar with the award-winning TV show about advertising execs in 1960's but hadn't watched as much as a full episode, so I decided to tune in for one. The show is a little randy, to use their vernacular. And I had a hard time getting use to all the smoking and drinking they do at work. But it's also smartly written, and their style is fabulous.
See what I mean? This was a great excuse to buy a retro-chic southern-looking dress.
So maybe that's why I loved this post on writing by Jonathan Morrow at Copyblogger called "The Mad Men Guide to Changing the World With Your Words." You have to admit, that's a creative angle for a post.
If you're a writer, check it out and see if you agree with Jonathan and the fictional Don Draper. By the way, the show's writers are mostly females in their 20's to 50's.
Now I'm off to do some more of what looks like nothing in hopes of uncovering the next great idea and changing the world. Then I'll put on a fabulous dress and write like mad.
You watch this show? If you decide to tune in now, just know that I warned you, it's randy!
