Something is Happening

Okay, it’s finally time to say something because it’s all getting close. I’m in for a writing career reboot here, and it’ll likely all start happening by the end of the month. The retooling of this web site some months ago was the first step, but now there are others. I’ve slowly been putting things [...]

Just Another Night at Wal-Mart

Finished episode two of The Amazing Secret of Omi La, after struggling against weeks of interruptions and time burners. Two more and we’ll have us a VBS play. Meantime, here’s an excerpt from the novel I’m on the verge of finishing up, …and that’s the end of the news (except when I’m calling it Drawing [...]

Slowly I Turn…

So just to catch up on what I’m doing, I am currently working on the this year’s play for our Vacation Bible School program – a knights of the round table themed epic called The Secret of the Castle Omi La. I don’t think it’s going to be as big a scale as everyone expects [...]

Some Pages

A Father ChristmasAct Two, Scene OnePages, 3/25/06: 4Current Total: 95 What can I say? Trying hard to keep the streak alive. The defense finished with the antagonist, and just put the protagonist on the stand. He’s explaining what he does for a living. Basically, he’s an insurance salesman. But of course, the play isn’t about [...]

The Clock Hits Ninety (More or Less)

A Father ChristmasAct Two, Scene OnePages, 3/24/06: 3Current Total: 91 Nothing exciting to report, no breakthroughs or anything like that. I did get a timely e-mail from Tom the Author giving me some legal advice as I write the cross-x scene, which I’m trying to keep in mind. The grilling of the antagonist is about [...]

Insert Your Own Title Here…

…because I’m too tired to insert one of my own. Yesterday was a date day between my wife and I. We ran around and spent gift certificates we’d gotten for our 25th anniversary – managed the entire day without spending any of our own money. This included lunch at shopping at Arkon’s fabulous West Point [...]

Back to Where it All Started

Friday night when I got home from work, I found out my daughter was apprehensive about driving herself to rehearsal for the play she’s assistant directing. After all, it was not just any Friday night, but the evening of St. Patrick’s Day, probably the second most popular drinking holiday after New Year’s Eve. She batted [...]

The Return of the Thing

January 26th – before the darkest month began – that was the last time I worked on A Father Christmas. I don’t know, maybe next year I’ll experiment and plan to not do anything in February – not even blogging – and see what happens. On the other hand, perhaps not. It might be the [...]

It Ain’t Over Even When it’s Over

A Father ChristmasAct One, Scene ThreePages, 1/24/06: 4Current Total: 68 Act One is finished. At least that’s what I would have said last night, as I hit the dramatic high-point that I had planned to end the first act. Today I’m not so sure. My wife made some comments about it not being in quite [...]
