2008 in review
I had 6 productions of my full length plays, in '08, all from the publications. I had some short pieces go up in various places, wrote some songs for the Rapid Response Team. Two of my short plays were made into films, one of which I'll get to see next month and the other which I hope you've all seen by now. Two short plays are being published as well. I went to LA and had lots of TV meetings. I wrote and rewrote a pilot, and then threw it out and wrote it again. I pitched another pilot a couple of times which I hope to write when I get a chance. I had a commission from South Coast Rep, I had a good time reading Incendiary with Labyrinth in Vermont and New York. Hung out with Single Carrot Theatre in Baltimore who did Food For Fish. Bought long underwear and moved to Minneapolis for my wife's fellowship. Oh yeah, did I mention I got married? I got married. I've been thinking of it as a year of setting up, resting, regrouping, preparing for the real work ahead, but when I look at all those things, well, those are a lot of things. I guess that was a busy year. And more to come. Two plays for sure coming up. Two more possible and a lot of maybes in the air.
