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.
