EPISODE 18: FINDING NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, A Play In Process

    Subscribe, subscribe! (Just fill in that little form at the right). Once this play is over, I promise you won’t be bombarded with posts from me; in normal times, I don’t do one a week, but I set this schedule for myself in order to get this play written. I’ve liked the idea […]

EPISODE 17: FINDING NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, A Play In Process

  Thank you to the people who subscribed this week! And if you haven’t yet… look to the right 🙂 I mentioned in an earlier post about my end-of-play checklist. One of the things I had on it was wanting to add more of Katie and Cha-Cha coming up with nail polish colors for fun. […]

EPISODE 16: FINDING NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, A Play In Process

  I did a lousy job pushing out last week’s episode, so if you missed it, just click back. Or subscribe at the right, and you’ll be reminded every Monday that there’s a new episode. For everyone who is sticking with me, THANK YOU. You alone are the reason this play is getting written, such […]

EPISODE 15: FINDING NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, A Play In Process

  Usual plea; please subscribe to the right. 🙂 It occurred to me this week as I do the hard work of getting through to the end of this play that what protects writers in the drafting phase is knowing that nobody has seen the work yet. We have a way of taking bigger chances […]

  Welcome back and please forgive my usual plea to take a moment to subscribe at the upper right! Or, if you’re on NPX, you can leave a recommendation so that others might start tuning in. This has been a TOUGH week for writing.  It was my anniversary and my husband’s birthday and I had […]

  Welcome back! If you’re still here and haven’t subscribed, please take a second to do so at the right.  Thank you!   Short and sweet this week as I finish the utility scene I started last week. This week, I have to put the girls on the road, though I realize that since they […]

EPISODE 12: FINDING NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, A Play In Process

    Welcome back! If you have not yet subscribed at the right, please do! It helps to know that I’m not writing into a void. Thank you!     After last week’s revelations, we move into something of a utility phase. I need to get these girls out, but also get cement some more […]

EPISODE 11: FINDING NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, A Play In Process

  Lots of changes here! If you haven’t subscribed yet, please take a moment to do so at right. And if you need to catch up, start here. Thank you!     This point was bound to come. Playwright readers know it well: the messy middle. As if first drafts aren’t messy enough—too much dialogue, […]

NOT EVERY VALUABLE JOURNEY ENDS IN PRODUCTION

  I started this blog post about BRILLIANT WORKS OF ART a couple of years ago not knowing how it would end, but hoping it would be as we hope all play journeys end: with production. Writing this post, and anticipating finishing it someday with a great production success, was coping therapy after learning that this play […]

2017 Year in Review

  In my continual quest to prove that submitting does work, I again offer up total transparency in my year’s submission and results. As with 2014’s Recap: You Can’t Argue With Numbers, 2015’s Review in Numbers, and 2016’s Year in Review, the goal is to share numbers, changes, results, and any other information that makes […]
