Wordle.net is a great way to waste time.

For example, this is the majority of words I use:

Wordle: 20 Sided Woman

Kind of wish it came out bigger.  I wish really wasn't as big, but I guess I have to work on that.

This is pretty fun--try it guys!

Found my calling at age 23?

Last night the reading I had went really well.  I don't want to bore you all with the details, but the reception was mostly positive, and people were convinced that I was going to get this produced somewhere.

Really?  Little old me?

So I guess I'm good at this writing thing.  But I was thinking about it, and about what's out there and how to make myself different, and then I realized...

There isn't enough sci-fi plays.

I'm serious about this.  I know I posted about the one Capek wrote, the one where the word robot originates, but there aren't a lot that come to my head.  Or any, really.  It's something absent on the stage.  Does it need to be on stage?  Not really, I can understand why film and tv work better for the genre.  Doesn't mean I'm not going to try though.

I think I mentioned to you guys that Lady Gaga's Bad Romance inspired me to write a story (can't really look up links while at work) but now that I think about it, play makes a lot more sense.  I'm partly writing this down here because I don't want to forget this idea, I think it could be rather riveting if I do it right.

I had a hard time sleeping last night, in the same way children can't fall asleep Christmas Eve.  Something exciting is happening and it's hard to rest.  Well I think the exciting thing that happend for me, after all the feedback and the whirlwind of ideas in my head, is that I realized I've been a writer all this time, and I don't have to let that go.  Officially, I'm calling myself a writer now.  And I feel like if I don't continue writing, I'm denying myself and all those people who were touched by my work something that at least some people out there want to connect to.

Might as well give this a shot

Any actors in the Chicago area would like to help me out with my play reading?  We're short a few actors and need them this weekend, specifically Sunday evening.

Shoot me an email and I'll forward the info to my director.

If only I hadn't gone to school in New York, this might be easier.

IMPORTANT (if you make first contact)

A friend of mine showed me this handy guide in case you ever find yourself being the first human being to make contact with aliens that are more advances than us.

It's not easy to read like this, I would save this and read it just in case the aliens/conquerers find you worthy.

Achievement Unlocked: Finished Play

It's really just a finished draft that needs some tweaking, but it's pretty finished right now. Whee!

I'm having a playing reading right outside of Chicago on the evening of April 11th, so I'm super excited. And now, to write more of my trilogy that is the prequel of the DnD campaign I ran/will run.

P.S. you guys figured out the last post was a joke right? I try not to be too good at pranks April 1st. That one was for those extremely easy to fool.

Wait, another romance in Mass Effect 2?

OH MAN!  I didn't realize this romance between female Sheppard and an elcor was possible, but look!

I'm going to have to replay this game ALL OVER again, starting TODAY! I suggest you all try for it too!
