31 Plays in 31 Days! (And other stuff.)

So, uh, it's been awhile!

Last we spoke, I had some audacious plans concerning an audio drama project, etc., something about releasing it by the end of 2016, etc.

Well look: good news and bad news. The bad news is that I'm a blithe optimist about what's possible in what amount of time, and the ambitious story I wanted to tell (and how I wanted to tell it) was never going to be finished by the end of 2016. I'm an okay writer but kind of dumb about schedules, it turns out.

The good news is that The Ordinary Epic does exist, is in fact in post-production (my amazing sound designer and composer are working their meticulous magic), and we're aiming for a fall 2017 release. It lives! It's going to be really good (he said, without any bias whatsoever)! Follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter!

Other writerly updates? Well... okay! You are so thoughtful to ask.

  • I had a sleep-deprived blast at my second Hovey Players "Play in a Day" event, and the ten-minute play I wrote during that, called Swimming in Captivity...
  • ...will be performed this November in South Korea as part of the Seoul Players Ten-Minute Play Festival!
  • My little play about procrastination, The Successful Author's Morning Ritual, appears in both One Minute Plays: A Practical Guide to Tiny Theatre and 222 More Comedy Monologues 2 Minutes & Under.
  • And! I am participating in this year's 31 Plays in 31 Days challenge. (The title and graphic of this post were very misleading, I know.)

As is my exhibitionist tradition, I'll be posting the plays here on my website as I finish them. You will be able to read all of them here. If you dare. (Some will eventually get staged and/or published. Some will make me laugh, and no one else. Some will be... unspeakably bad. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.)

Alright. Okay. I think that's everything. I'll see you on the other side. And let me know if you, too, are writing 31 of your own plays in these 31 days!
