Title Schmitle!

Book work.
*Ok, so today I'm going to work on a book I've been trying to write for a long time now. I'm going to get "un-stuck" ... some how, right?! Right!!!
*I'm also putting together, what's likely (and I may have said this in a post last month) another of the bajillions of theatre game books that are out there in the world. It's mostly so that I can have all my games in one spot, this way when I'm in a class I've got all the games I like in one place. I don't kNOw if it will ever become anything other than my own compiling for my own use...but, well, anything could happen!

Job Applications
I've found three different Stage Manager/Production SM jobs that I "could" apply for. Problem = how do you apply for gigs that:
a.) aren't anywhere near your current location?
b.) would overlap one or more of your current jobs (all of which are in theatre to begin with)?


I'll very likely do more research work on my MS Play, Greek Myth research is a lot of fun! :o)

And I've gotta figure out what the theme for my December 24 Hour Round at the HS should be ... I'm stuck on this one, gotta find something fun to do that can be "done" at the school so the kids don't have to travel at any point during the process ('cause then there's permission forms etc...).

Ok, now I've gotta get crackin', 'cause I'm also getting back on that exercise wagon TODAY!


  1. 24 hours in a gymnasium

    24 hours in a locker

    24 hours in detention

    24 hours in the nurses office

    24 hours trapped in English Lit Class

    24 hours in the Janitors' Closet

    24 hours in the Teachers' Lounge

    My favorites are Janitors' closet and Detention...

  2. The gym was our setting for the HS trial run two years ago, so I don't think I'd do that one, but the others are all possibilities. I'm a fan of the 24 Hours: In Detention ...

    Also thinking things like 24 Hours: As a Cheerleader ...

    Hmmm.....one of the distinctive aspects of my 24 Hour series is that I place my playwrights "in" the theme area (so, put them in the Library or on the Elevator) while they write. I'm not sure how I'd put them in a detention room - I don't think that'd be allowed ... I could probably have them sit in on a cheerleading practice ... possibly get them in a 9th period English class ... and I'm sure I could let them sit in the boiler room or something for the Janitor's closet ...

    Still thinking ... we'll see what I come up with.
