I was a Standup Comic for over 8 years. I spread the joys of humor from the midwest of the United States to the east, south, and west. A lot of my routine was just plain silly, but I did like to slide in the occasional,thought provoking pun from time to time and then sprinkle it with just the right amount of sarcasm.
I also scribed sitcom scripts, short stories, and a book. Unfortunately, none of my amazing words of wonder ever made it to the screen or shelves.
After a move to LA, I fell out of entertainment and into the world of business management. It was interesting and exciting and all in all a good experience, but now it's time to write!
So become a friend and catch my oh so meaningful views on life, liberty, and the pursuit of a Best Seller.
Who is Brian J. Walters?
"Hmm. Do I have to answer in 3rd person? Brian J. Walters is a guy that likes to laugh. He was actually a standup comic for over 8 years."
"Comics are just cool people. That was the best part of the 'job' - hanging all day with fellow comics. We/they are a twisted bunch. Always trying to make fun out of everything; good, bad, and all things in between. You can't be a good comic if you don't like to laugh," said 1st person Brian J. Walters. "A lot of my routine was just plain silly, but I did like to slide in the occasional, thought provoking pun from time to time and then sprinkle it with just the right amount of sarcasm."
Brian's move to LA was a little different than the road. "Acting is a whole new game. It's a tough business. I eventually fell out of the creative side of entertainment biz and moved into the business side. It was interesting and exciting and all in all a good experience, but now it's time to write!"
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
"The greatest joy...creating characters. I love to make someone up out of nothing. At first, I have a basic idea of who they are; wife, husband, friend, co-worker, etc. Then, as a scene develops, I start to 'see' what really makes them up. I 'learn' what drives them, their weakness and strengths, goals and fears."
"Names? I don't know how other writers do it, but my 'babies' don't get their names until I know them in and out. Kind of like 'True Blood.' Remember when Sheriff Bellefleur became father to the four fairy girls and named them 1, 2, 3, and 4? That's how I work it. It's tough when I'm working with my Beta Readers, because they'll be referring to the characters by name and I still only know them by what they did or said."
