James Breakwell on Writing a Humor Column for The Indianapolis Star

Author, comedy writer, and columnist James Breakwell has come full circle in his writing career. He started out in journalism long before he became an internet sensation through his @XplodingUnicorn Twitter handle. It was as a journalist where Breakwell initially honed his style, writing about many topics and eventually narrowing in on his upbeat but pessimistic (and hilarious) views on parenting. His Twitter fame, now over one million followers, eventually led to the release of his critically acclaimed debut book, Only Dead on the Inside: A Parent's Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, with a second book due to release in November of 2018. All of this success has opened new doors for Breakwell who is now writing a parenting column for the Indianapolis Star. The biggest surprise for Breakwell with this opportunity has been the number of new fans and followers that he has gained, a result of newspapers going digital.
