SUPRISE!

It’s been a weird week. Maybe I’ll get into it in my next blog post, maybe I won’t. BUT I realized I have mentioned my Panic!at the Disco musical THREE times on this blog. And you know how the rule of three goes… So, even though I’m not sure I’ll ever share it, mostly because…

3 Random Thoughts on Playwriting

It’s Leo season. #GLOWUP. Am I feeling the glow-up? Um…. Well. I spent Friday night on the kitchen floor drinking from a bottle of wine and eating Skittles for dinner while I cried about how everything is trash and miserable and how I’m wasting away my potential and how I’m 30 now and I should…

Who writes your story?

(This post is more about the art of playwriting and less about traveling) I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about what kind of stories I’m allowed to write. Honestly, it was already on my mind as I’m working on two new commissions but it’s almost like the universe could sense I was…

Are we out of the woods yet?

It’s a little wild to me that of my 26 (I may have miscounted) blog posts, 20 of them are references to pop songs but not one of those twenty are Taylor Swift. So clearly, it’s time to fix that problem. It’s been a rocky time. The happiest I’ve been in the last month is…

GTFO Part II: Geeked Out

Things have not been going well. I was utterly wrecked that I wasn’t even honorable mention on the Kilroys. And if I had been on the list, I’m certain I would’ve made it a little further for two different jobs on the table. And not being on it kind of knocks me out of the…

Right Above It

I was hella tempted to name this post Dracarys and then just pop off for 500 words about everything that’s happened in the last two weeks. And y’all. It’s been a lot. I wanted to pop off about the danger of caring too much while working in the arts. How I’ve been told I’m “too…

I love it every time

In March, I quit my full-time job* because I wanted to a playwright. I figured I had enough saved to float me for six months and I decided now or never. Well. I was raised by a Virgo (dad), Aquarius (mom), and Sagittarius (step mom). And probably the only thing those three signs have in…

Are You Happy?

When I was in grad school, I interviewed a bunch of classmates, professors, and friends on what they thought it meant to be happy. It turned into this kind of gorgeous dance piece/monologue piece that isn’t like anything I’ve ever written. I’m not saying it’s well written but I love it anyway. Because we all…

I wanna get better

I am not the biggest fan of musicals. I like about six of them. But the ones I like, I LOVE. And from each of them there’s a song that feels like it was written for me. Climbing Uphill from The Last Five Years is one of the songs I ugly cry to as I…

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…
