FAQ Check (Happy birthday Blog!)

Happy birthday blog! A year ago today, I started my blog. What started out as a fun blog about playwriting and traveling has kind of evolved into my wildly emotional musings about what it means to be a playwright (at least to me anyway). I’ve dropped the ball a bit on pro-tips and don’t have…

Still Here

Back in 2013, I was stage managing a new play as part of the Arkansas New Play Festival with Theatresquared. The play, set in New Orleans, was written by one of my favorite professors at the time who is literally brilliant. Everyone in the room was incredibly talented and I learned so much from that…

Do You Love Me?

So…what now?

Being honest, I truly hate end of the year posts. Even when it was a good year. I think the biggest part of it is I’m someone who would much rather hear about your plans and what’s coming up than “best moments 20xx.” We already lived through the year. Do we really need to revisit…
