Thanks, Scott, for the wonderful words! We have about 24 hours to go with the Kickstarter. Please donate!

Yesterday we went global big, today we’re going local small. Well, at least small scale in the big city. In one of the many posts I did on playwright Tennessee Williams this month I mentioned that his worked continues to gain in popularity since his death in 1983. So I wanted to tell you about an opportunity you have to support Bedlam Ensemble in their Kickstarter campaign for The Tennessee Williams Project.

If you’re reading this you clicked on “news.”

Yes, I realize that the link takes you to a bunch of posts that don’t really contain much by way of news. As a matter of fact, the last post was a screen shot of a tweet in which I made claims to write a novel on Twitter in just one month.

We all knew that wasn’t going to happen.

So here’s a brief update on things I’m super excited about:

  • I have started rehearsing “The Tennessee Williams Project” with Bedlam Ensemble, and I’m super excited about it.
  • I have started rehearsing with The Forum Project– and I am also super excited about it.
  • The kitchen in my restaurant is finally opening.
  • My boyfriend’s dad has hired me. I call architects and ask them for their email addresses. I do it at home. Right now I am wearing pajama pants under my dress.
  • I got accepted into this workshop in January, and I’m super excited about being a BOSS.
  • My friend Julie is going to be my writing partner, and the webseries I’m creating is moving into the next phase. So excited.
  • Christmas music is happening. Very exciting.
  • An old cat of mine, Fat Mac, came into my dream last night. It must be a sign that prepping my apartment for a cat I don’t have is a good step, because a cat will be entering my future soon. So exciting.

Lastly, today I was walking along the Highline, I realized how much I love this city. Not a day goes by where I don’t get to meet someone creating something.

That is a good and exciting feeling.
