I know, I know

It's been almost a month and I haven't made a single post. There's a reason for that, but I can't publicly say it at the moment. I can say that I had a final in a class I was taking and I'm helping a couple friends with recommendation letters, but I am writing and working on the top secret project. As soon as I can post about it, I will.

I hope 2010 is treating you all well. It's certainly been an interesting ride so far.

time flew

The rest of 2009 and the first two weeks of 2010 have gotten away from me, as usual. I also have some things I can't post about here yet, but there's some exciting stuff happening for me this year. Posting will definitely occur when I can do it.

But for now, for a fellowship I am applying to, I have to write a statement of purpose--with no other guidelines.

This is not easy. I never had to write an essay to get into college or anything, so this is all new to me. I know how to be verbose--if you know me in person, you know that I can talk A LOT. And don't get me started on things I love--you and I could be here all day.

But a statement of purpose for my playwriting? Suddenly, I'm frozen up. I've spent two weeks writing things down in a notebook, trying to get a feel for what I should write. And all of it is ringing wrong. I'm afraid it's going to be too long, but I can always cut stuff. I am going to be using some things I have written in here, so I need to go through my archives. And I already realize I need to blog more...

But I am working on some things though. I got a couple new projects coming down the pike and I am currently editing 'Suburbia', which apparently I haven't picked up in two years...but it's fine. It's time now to edit it.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful new year!
