- Did an edit/rewrite of my novel, Moving (A Life in Boxes), cutting about 6,300 words
- Did a rewrite of my middle-grade novel, Buried Treasure.
- did some freelance business writing (which helped pay some bills).
- rewrote some of my play Constant State of Panic, after the production in DC in January
- Completely rewrote my full-length play about the creation of English Bible, now titled Fire on Earth. This was a total gut rehab (even changed the title and main characters)
- Wrote 8 very short audio plays for the Emerging America Festival (one of which was recorded--I Am Not Invisible.)
- Wrote Escape to Wonderland, a new ten-minute drama, for the T Plays produced by Mill 6 Theatre Collaborative.
- Wrote a one-act play, The Light Collectors, for the Youth Astronomer Apprenticeship program with MIT and the Central Square Theatre. This was my first commissioned play.
- Started a first draft of a new historical novel (I have about 100 pages so far)
- Wrote a new ten-minute comedy, Curse the Darkness.
- Wrote a new full-length drama, Flight, based on two of my ten-minute plays. I'm having a reading of this from Madcap Players in DC in January.
- A bunch of blog posts on my three different blogs.
Production-wise, 2010 wasn't bad. The year saw dozens of productions by schools, through the various publishers that handle my work. Productions/readings of my work included:
- Constant State of Panic was produced by the Madcap Players in DC. And a reading from Boston Playwrights Theatre.
- Confirmed Sighting in Boston and New York.
- Recognition in Pick of the Vine Festival by Little Fish in California
- Schedule-Meisters in Minnesota and Australia
- Fire on Earth received a reading from the Huntington Theatre Company in August.
- Measuring Matthew by Another Country in Boston
- Lies, Lies, Lies by Actors Refuge Repertory in Boston.
Oh, and I finally found an agent for my novels (and other books to come), which made 2010 a pretty darn good year. (Now I need 2011 to bring a book deal.)
Overall, a minimum of 7,500 people heard, read, or saw my work performed this year, and I had more than 122 performances of my plays, which is not bad at all.
It's hard to say what 2011 will be like. I have a production of Escape to Wonderland scheduled for January, but after that the calendar looks pretty empty. Lots of room for good things to happen.
