December has been a crazy month! Thanks for checking in, let me fill you in on what happened this past month and what you can expect in January.
The short play MAGIC? is being extended into a full 60 minute script in a new collaboration between the piece's director Chris Erlendson and myself. Moving forward, Chris and I aim to write the piece together sharing writer responsibilities -- Chris will retain his Director's cap and I hope to acquire an Assistant Director's hat. The extended piece is a lot sweeter, rhythmic, and magical than the original 10 minute version. Here, Chris and I take the viewer into a world where magic, a once overadbundant commodity, is vanishing. A group of charlatan magicians who use their imaginations to perform tricks get framed as culprits of negating magic when in fact they were doing nothing wrong! How these vegabonds rediscover true magic and prove to the kingdom its use is a magical story we hope to tell in entire rhyme! Timeline of this project is still being determined!
MAGNIFICENT SCIENTIFIC, a drama about medical research is in its final stages of revision after a closed development workshop. This project may seem stagnant because of how quiet I've been about it but in January I will schedule a development reading (when and where to be determined) and will kick off some serious work on this script. After the first week of January, draft 3 of this script will be complete -- a gargantuan accomplishment given the script is 85 pages long and is being rewritten for its the 3rd time. Yes, that's a lot of writing but even more yesses, that's a lot of revising. Soon you will help me get to draft 4 and 5!
Thanks for following up! Hopefully January will prove to be just as rewarding as December. Wishing you a happy New Year. 2017 is here, and so are you! Let's make things happen.
