Are you waiting to watch someone else’s story or writing your own?

Yellowstone is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. It is in an elite category with Game Of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Seinfeld, Da Ali G Show, and The Golden Girls. (Come on, you know those ladies were a hoot.)

Yellowstone fans have been looking forward to June because historically, that is when the new season debuts.

But June has come and practically gone, and yet still no Yellowstone Season 4. With Covid messing up nearly everything this past year it is not surprising that the debut would be delayed.

During the delay, I have contemplated why we look forward to the new season of our favorite shows.

The answer is simple.

  1. The stories are great.
  2. The stories are unfinished.
  3. We can’t wait to see what happens next.

However, while we are anxiously awaiting the next Bridgerton, The Crown or The Real Housewives of Philindablank, remember that your own story is great. It is unfinished. And you get to determine what happens next.

You get to write the script, create the plot twist, and make the montage happen where all the progress is made. You get to determine the fun, interesting, and surprising new things that happen next. You get to introduce the new characters. You get to change the location. You even get to star in the naughty scenes. (How great is that?)

Key Takeaway

Don’t wait to watch someone else’s story. Make your own story the most interesting, fun, and binge-worthy story of all. You get one life to write, direct, edit, and star in. Make it amazing. And don’t be surprised if Hollywood comes calling on you.

  1. You’re a great writer, Adam. I’d definitely watch any TV show you create.

    And I’m dying to know what happens next for Rip. He’s my fave. 🤠

    1. That’s a nice thing to write Amy! Thank you! Rip and his lady-friend are my faves too. And I am still waiting for someone to die in that plane that was set to blow 2 seasons ago.
