Writing
 

I write to express myself and to communicate to others. Using key, descriptive, narrative, efficient, evocative & noticeable words, I can tell a story, pass on information & send messages both personal + private & general + public. This is very useful in visual arts like design, advertising & news information. But in a written story, words are all that are used. I have recently endeavored in writing plays - full length, ten page plays, one acts, and scenes + monologues. Later in the process, the words are transmuted into action, costumes, humanity, emotion, & others. This is done for a performance for others to experience. The outcomes can be ho-hum to paridigm shifting. This is a key fascination for me.
Writer’s Pool
Work in Progress & Past Work
Produced & Published
I submitted to join and began writing for the SF PlayGround Writer’s Pool for Monday Nights at BerkRep (Oct. thru April) where they stage ten minute plays, commission new work, foster new playwrights & develop the skill to tell theatrical stories & more in 2017.
When an idea for a play comes to mind, it is my honor & responsibility to explore ways to make its way into a performance or event, happening, or experience where its story can be told, shared & remembered, maybe also to inspire & more.
These stories had the opportunity to be performed for the audiences of the public, friends, citizens, fans, & theatre goers upon stages, in halls, living rooms & kitchens, on the street or in parks, at desks and on person’s lips, or in print on script books and collections.
