I’m writing from the Super 8 Motel in State College, Pennsylvania, where I’m in town for a week, workshopping my play Stray with undergraduates at Penn State! http://www.culturalconversations.org/
I just flew in this evening, after sharing an uneventful day-long journey with a British robot salesman/amateur stunt pilot, and caught the second half of a run-through of the play. The students have already been working on the play for a few weeks, and their script work definitely shows through! Now I’m just going to have to sit back and watch…and maybe do a little tightening here and there. In the meantime, I’m planning to use my time in rural Pennsylvania as a well-needed writing retreat.
Retreat from what, you ask? Well, mostly this: www.chalkrep.com
But also the upcoming NYU New Writers Showcase. More on that later.
