my 2009 in review

In ’09 I had a total of eight productions of six different full length plays.  I was able to attend six of them.  Four of the productions were from published plays.   I also had another play published in ’09 and managed to get my first TV job.

For the first half of 2009 I was still living in Minneapolis looking for 12 dollar an hour temp work, riding my bike everywhere so I didn’t have to pay two dollars for the bus. I was also in New York twice for extended periods because of two shows I had that went up.  We left MN at the end of June and I was in CT for about two weeks and then I headed to Atlanta to work on that TV show and was there for about five months working extremely long hours and getting paid two to three times more than I ever made as an administrative assistant in New York. Now I’m in a cottage on a lake in Connecticut.  It’s been kind of a crazy year.

Oh, and I interviewed 100 playwrights, many of whom are friends of mine.  What else?  I wrote a couple new plays and five or so episodes of that show.   Kristen and I bought a car.  Again, I have the feeling like I didn’t do enough this year.  I’m impatient at how long it takes to do everything.  I have a lot to write and don’t know when I will get to it. 

Anyway, Happy New Year.  I don’t know what is next for any of us but I hope for an adventure.
