One advantage of having a little time off is the chance to do more writing. As some of you know I have written about two dozen plays that have received more than 100 productions, readings or awards in twenty four states. I am not earning a living from writing, far from it, it actually costs me more than I earn, so it is very much a hobby at this point. While I would love to make money doing it, I enjoy it so much that I keep at it anyway.
The last several years have been very stressful at work and consumed a tremendous amount of energy and time. Even when I took a vacation I spent several days during the trip working remotely as there was no one else to do certain tasks. I did some writing but far less than I wanted.
For at least the next several weeks you will find me often at libraries, parks and other places around New York writing as much as I can. Indeed, one of the reasons I rebooted this blog is to require me to write a little each day to grease the wheels. This blog is intended to jump start my play writing. Wish me luck.
