I hate editing

I haven’t felt like a writer in months For the past few weeks I have been working on a rewrite – slash – edit – slash – reworking of a novel of mine called Fixer, about which you have likely heard almost nothing because I haven’t discussed it except in passing before now. At the…

Universal appeal

Playwriting topically Back when I was a younger man– last week! I swear!– and getting my hands dirty in the craft of playwriting, I spent a lot of time worrying about one thing in particular: will the play I’m writing work for an audience ten years from now?  Will it work for an audience fifty…

Immortal press release

Immortal press release I’d like to say I finally got around to writing and releasing a press release for Immortal, but the truth is, between freaking out about the launch party (tomorrow) and getting sick with some manner of death flu, it never crossed my mind.  Fortunately, the Twitter community is paying attention, and in…
