Why you should all read Jason Kyle’s Blog

by Louisa Klein

Hello you cool, beautiful nerds! So, clearly I’m not ready to post regularly. I mean, whenever I try to create a regular blogging schedule, something happens and disrupts it.

I have no idea where this sabotage comes from, but I had a ton of work in the last two weeks and had to deal with a very annoying male client in spite that women are the only gender who’s annoying and difficult, since men are notoriously ALWAYS reasonable and full of common sense …

Anyway, without further ado, let’s get to the meat of this post! 

As many of you know (and if you don’t, I’m telling you now) since January, I’ve been working for the Mighty Lee Aronsohn (the co-creator of 2 and ½ Men, one of the best shows ever made) and the awesome Jason Kyle, a handsome actor with a business degree who’s now an established Sony executive.

What can I say about these two men? They’re flawless, two geniuses who are never wrong, plus Lee Aronsohn is 67 but doesn’t look a day older than 25 … In case you’re wondering folks: flattering your bosses DOES work!  😉

Lee and Jason have recently started a consulting business for aspiring TV writers: The Creators Writing Room. This awesome business offers a number of affordable courses as well as consulting services for writers eager to hone their craft, but also a lot of FREE content, such as:

  1. Videos you can find on their YouTube channel;  

2. The CW BLOG, written by Jason himself;

  2. The CW BLOG, written by Jason himself;   

As a fiction writer and professional copywriter, I tell you: Jason’s blog is a delight!Why? For many reasons: first, it has a number of very useful posts for newbies like me who know almost nothing about the show business industry and how writers fit in it.

Super-interesting to me was his post about the writers room hierarchy (you can read it here: https://www.thecwroom.com/post/what-are-the-various-positions-in-a-writer-s-room ) and I learned a ton about  effective loglines and how to avoid overwriting them, thanks to his Logline post (here’s the link: https://www.thecwroom.com/post/the-logline-3-things-you-need-to-know ) .

 Jason also wrote two posts about self-care for creators which, in my opinion, he should have titled differently, because the tips he gives are useful TO EVERYONE, but especially during these tough times while we are all facing a pandemic worldwide.  

As I mentioned, Jason is now an established Sony executive, but before getting where he is, he had to face a lot of rejections, stress and money problems. He would have failed if he hadn’t taken care of himself properly (and, initially, he refused to because … real men don’t need self-care) but he did and that’s why he’s where he is now.  

We all need self-care, because self-care is equal maintenance: as Jason points out, it’s a collection rituals and/or activities that help us function, enable us to be productive, helpful and be there for those who need us, especially during these terrible pandemic. you can read his posts on self-care here .

So, to recap, you should all check this blog out, because:

  1. It’s absolutely FREE: you get great advice, without paying a dime;
  2. It’s full of useful information for those writers (and actors) who’d like to break into the show business;
  3. It’s funny, brief and authentic;
  4. It’s full of useful tips for writers;
  5. It gives self-care tips useful for EVERYONE

HAPPY READING! 🙂
