Last week I entered into a new position. I am now The Center Players Playwright in Residence. The position will give me the opportunity to create new works while reaching out to the community. I am so excited and quite nervous. There will be three public readings of my work and I will teach two writing workshops. I am excited about starting new projects -(do I hear a but coming?) but (there it is) …but I am nervous. So often when I am speaking with other writers they look at me like I’m somebody. I mean, I know I’m somebody but (there it is again)…but I wish I knew how to convey the message that writing isn’t a competitive deal. Writing, for me, is what I do. It’s what I love to do. I’m not trying to be somebody famous. I’m just trying to do what I love.
