And here's another
thing I totally forgot to mention:
I wrote something that got performed someplace else
last weekend.New World Arts
put together a Blitz-like event called The Action Comedy.
Basically, it's like if I asked God for a play festival, it'd be this show.
Anyway, I just went to their site, and, apparently, my short monolouge "Four Things In No Particular Order" (which can be read in its entirety here
) opened the night
From reading the blog, it sounds awesome.
Incidentally, this also represents my personal best in getting a script in in a crunch.
See, Michelle Milne called me at work at 11:00 am, the day of the show, and asked if I was planning on sending a script, or what.
D'ohh! I hadn't gotten a confirmation email from them, and assumed I wasn't in.
"No, no," she said, "We saw your blog--which is awesome--and we knew right away we wanted you to be a part of it!"
It turns out they'd been sending me assignments all week, only they were going to my spam folder for some reason.
So at 11:10, she re-sends me my assignment, which I read on my cell phone.
I work for a while and think of a story.
At 11:50, I take lunch.
At 12:45, I had a readable copy.
At 1:15, I jack into my job's internet with the remaining seconds of power I have on my laptop and send in my script.
At 1:30, I get ahold of them, confirming that it's in the show.
God, sometimes I love being a writer.
