It’s release day for a brand-new script! I’m proud of myself for not having let anything slip about this before now. This is just the first of several projects I have going this year, and I’m excited to get to share this one with you now!
Last year, I enjoyed writing my 22 Things I Learned as a 22-Year-Old post so much that I thought I’d do a similar post again this year. Who knows, maybe it’ll become a tradition. I’m a little late this time around (my birthday was a couple weeks ago), but better late than never!
I’m slow to return to the blog and social media after the holidays, but here I am, alive and well! I hope the season of Christmas and the turning of the new year was a time of rest, reflection, and inspiration for you. It certainly was for me.
Encore performance? That’s right! This coming Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 6:30pm, we’re adding one last showing of The Return of Ben Morgenstern at the Wesleyan Church in Salem!
It’s dress rehearsal week! I can hardly believe The Return of Ben Morgenstern premieres in just FOUR DAYS. The cast and crew have done incredible work over the past months, and we’re so excited to share this drama with you!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you’re taking the day off to rest, enjoy good food, and spend time with family and friends. It’s a wonderful holiday that really does tend to get blotted out between Halloween and Christmas (not to mention Black Friday), and it deserves some attention!
Naming the characters in my stories is one of my favorite parts of writing. I sift through names trying to find The One, I have the character try on different options for size, and finally, a name fits. It’s their name.
I recently shared some tidbits about my new Christmas drama, The Return of Ben Morgenstern, and today I get to share a little more!
Our premiere performance is less than a month away (December 8), and rehearsals are getting lively.
It’s been a few months, but I finally got to book #5 in L. M. Montgomery’s Anne series (for the first time ever). After reading books #3 and #4 in June I was getting a bit tired of the plot patterns Montgomery tends to rely on (e.g. Anne befriends a kindred spirit, Anne adopts a cat, Anne melts the heart of an old grouch…).
Hm. How have I not posted since the 8th? This seems to be an October trend for me. Last year too I missed two blogposts in a row in October. Not sure what’s up with that—maybe a coincidence, or maybe in October I’m just braindead after writing a new Christmas play?
