Here, There be a Writer

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Almost missed Wednesday...

Yeah, I am writing this at 11:49 pm EST. I seem to have forgotten A Round of Words in 80 Days, a Blog

Hop. Going to get this clocked in before midnight. It's been a week. Yes, a week! I started getting the H'port Xmas Show together with Sara and David (goes up December 13th). I met with my set designer, I have my audition dates for The Mousetrap (December 14th, 15th, and 16th) and show dates now. So happy to do directing another show. Improv show to be built in the coming days (goes up December 5th). Again, this is what I do.

I have been going since the beginning of the year with theatre projects. And then there are the writing projects. Yeah, I'm crazy, but it's what I do.

This week:
     *Writing: been keeping pace with NaNoWriMo. I'm at 43,377 words. The story feels reals and maybe a little autobiographical in parts. I guess that happened sometimes.
     *Reading: I finished The Year of the Flood (Margaret Atwood) and started MaddAddam (also Margaret Atwood). I am so hooked. The books are good, that is all I can say. There is a realism and a truthfulness to the present world in them that is scary, but intriguing.
To work on:
     *Writing: finish NaNo Novel, Road Trip. Write a new short story, one seems to be brewing. Write some for the Xmas Show.
     *Blogging: been slack on these, hoping to dedicate more time to this next week.
     *Reading: Finish MaddAddam before The Mousetrap auditions and The Art of Asking (Amanda Palmer).
      *Editing: work on The Audition re-write.
      *Submitting: Get on this for next week.

It's been a busy week, some stuff fell to the back burner, while others were the focal point. I feel good overall. Theatre was created last week, more to be birthed in the coming weeks. A road trip to visit my Dad and Aunt this week (after working Black Friday, it'll be slow, trust me I don't work retail). Christmas is soon! Wow, the year 2014 is over, well almost over. Time to make the lat of it as awesome as the rest of it.

Have a fantastic week, Dear Readers!

  1. I think all creative types are a wee bit crazy. It's what we do and who we are, for sure. :)
    All the best as 2014 winds down. Sounds like you're doing well with your goals. Kudos!
