Fri. Jan. 25, 2019: Company for the Weekend

Waning Moon
Sunny and cold

Yesterday was an icky, stormy day. I did what I had to do out of the house early, in order to get back before the worst of the storm hit – which it did by lunchtime. I was glad to be in for the day.

Got some updates done on the websites. There are changes happening in the master calendar, and I have to make sure the sites reflect that.

Did some sorting and purging of material that came out of my office. A lot of it isn’t going back. Some has to be put aside to be filed next week. I’m now consolidating all my files on the ongoing series projects in one project bin, and the fragments and ideas I’m playing with in another bin. That will make it easier to keep track. Like Twyla Tharp, I’m big on project bins. That would probably be a good blog post.

Found the requested radio play and gave it a read-through. There’s only one word to which they might object as not family-friendly enough, and I’ll offer them an alternative. I’m also going to give them an option to split the play they have into two segments, if they wish. I’m going to look at the two short horror plays; if they’re not too gruesome, I’ll write up a third, and have that as a short option. Plus, I’ve been toying with a comic ghost story that might be fun. So there are options.

I’m thrilled that my radio plays are getting such warm receptions.

Re-read an old multi-media piece that was commissioned, but then the company went out of business before it went live. It’s a lot of fun. It could make a good long radio play or a stage play.

This morning, I was out the door early to do the big grocery shopping for the weekend. I’m looking forward to having company. Books and food and wine and conversation.

Pitched for a gig that’s a stretch, but I think I’d be a good fit. If I don’t try, I won’t have the chance, right? All they can do is say no.

Have a little bit more house cleaning to do and a couple of loads of laundry. And then . . .I start the cooking!

And, somehow, I will also manage to write, in and around all of this. Because, the writing comes first.

Have a great weekend!
