My second stage play Another Stage Play (The Fourth Curtain) has been posted in the archives for everyone to read! It can be accessed on its own page under the parent page of ‘Stage Plays’. Archive page links are located both under the blog’s header and in the sidebar to the right. Thank you to everyone who supported and inspired me during my experience writing this play.
It’s 8:23 in the morning in AP Language class. We’re on the Macs, reviewing the site for submitting papers online. Realizing there’s some time left, plus the fact that I haven’t touched any of my blogs for a couple months, I opened a new tab to WordPress and started this post. The summer passed with a blur but I distinctly remember the following events occurring in the midst of the fray.
- The state of Pennsylvania deemed me worthy of receiving my drivers’ license. How that happened, I have no idea so grab your monkey, pair of socks, buttered toast, or anything else existing on the same driving skill level as me.
- Vacationing on the Outer Banks. By the waterline I found a dead bush covered in sand, probably left over from a zombie party the night before.
- My last year of horse camp. That really made me realize how close to graduating I am.
- COUNTY FAIR!!! I posted the news about this year’s fair adventures and Adam’s horse show on my stable blog. Fair week was certainly the pinnacle of my summer thrills. I just wish it could last on and on and on…
A bizarre sense of accomplishment mixed with anticipation derives from the fact that I am now a high school senior this year. We started back to school on the last Tuesday of August. This year I have a study hall in the morning which I expected to grant me the divine capability to A.) Complete more work in school, thus avoiding the transport of assignments hone and furthering procrastination B.) Writing more from the source of my own imagination. Remarkably both options are possible. Not only do I have time to finish homework but I started work on a new stage play.
This next play involves…more zombies! I wrote the entire script in my head first one evening in the shower. No, really. In the shower. I conjured up the entire plot for the script so now I merely have to concentrate on typing it in Pages. It would be really nice if I finished the script by Halloween but that depends on school and the Fall Play schedule.
Since my only study hall is over soon, I’ll end this post right here.
Keep checking this blog soon! Another Stage Play (The Fourth Curtain) is nearing a release on this blog next to my other completed writing. Just like Master Manderodorke there will be a full script, character list, and stage guide available in PDF file format to download and read. I can’t wait to share my second play with the world. Hopefully it will receive many positive reviews and meet my readers’ expectations.
Done…and done! Just like I mentioned in the previous post, I posted the second scene to Yet Another Worthless Play. Read the play by clicking its link in the sidebar to the right. While posting the scene I decided to post my first stage play, Master Manderdorke, in the archives with my other stories. Look forward to its release sometime in the near future.
It snowed on Thursday. In the middle of March. WHY? In my opinion, the snow is absolutely gorgeous in December while anticipating Christmas’s arrival. However, I do not appreciate it in the middle of March. Thank goodness it disappeared before the weekend or else I would become very upset.
So far I’m having a good time. Track, spring play, and weekends with my horses keep me busy enough. Currently I can balance my time between track and play very well. The only hectic moments will be days with track meets and the play practices before the performance in April. This year everything seems to be occurring in April. I have a one-day field trip to D.C., spring play, the band trip to Boston, and assorted track meets thrown in the mix. After that, finally, I can slow down to enjoy myself over the Easter break. After Easter my mind will concentrate on the rest of the track season until the desperately needed summer break begins! See? I’m not complaining about school one bit.
While absolutely everything seems to be occurring in my life I still prioritize work on Another Worthless Play. I have not posted any more scenes on this site because I decided to elaborate upon some of the earlier scenes. Right now I consider releasing the second scene after I finish this post. Since I am typing this during a fragment of free time in computer class it depends upon how much time I have left after writing this. I can promise that the play looks spectacular. I am currently working on the second act. Who knows? Maybe it will turn out to be my best piece of literature yet! I’ll just have to keep working on it and see.
As mentioned before in this post, I will travel with the marching band for a spring trip. I absolutely CANNOT wait to go. Along with the main attractions in Boston I will see Salem, Mass. and the historical sites related to the witch trials. While there I plan on taking countless pictures. The location may also inspire the creation of a few new spooky, dark stories! The concept sounds extremely interesting. Upon my return I plan to post a few of my best pictures here and document my adventures during the trip. Until then I’ll be busy surviving the other adventures this spring.
It’s official: I cannot wait for the snow to disappear and for spring to begin! Last weekend I enjoyed spending time with the horses and riding Adam in the wonderful ‘half-winter-half-spring’ weather. Then a few days later…and school is canceled because of snow! I would take some time to complain about the sudden change in weather but instead I will express my excitement for the exciting events coming up soon.
First off is…track! Yes, I decided to run for another season this spring! Last year was pretty fun so I figured I might as well continue this year. I have more friends on the team this year which is another good thing. I started staying after school for conditioning last week. Surprisingly I enjoy it and am thankful that I exercised on the treadmill and ran regularly since last season. This will probably be my last year for track, however, so I can concentrate more on spring play during my junior and senior high school years.
This year’s spring play is Father of the Bride. So far it sounds like most people enjoy the choice. I have a feeling the play will go very well and the wedding scene will be so pretty! I’m extremely grateful that I am allowed to balance my time this spring between play AND track. I did it last year with few major issues so hopefully all will go well this year. :)
During my spare time I am also working diligently on my second stage play. Currently I am on the first scene of Act II after intermission. The play looks thrilling so far and I cannot wait to complete the first draft! Hopefully I’ll have it finished near the middle of March. Then I can concentrate on editing it at any convenient time such as backstage, before track practice, or during the bus ride to Boston for the band trip. I’m bursting with excitement for the trip as well! I’m rooming with three awesome friends who are EXTREMELY fun to hang out with. We’ll have a blast touring around Boston, marching in the parade, swimming in the hotel swimming pool, walking around Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, and spending time in Salem. (yes, we’re going there too!) The trip will take place in the month of April…just like spring play, Easter, and track practice. :) That will be one busy month for me!
P.S. Expect another Shadow Realm to be completed soon.
Shortly after the Christmas and New Year holiday a friend gave me a small red writing journal. The book consists of lined pages in between a leather looking red cover complete with a magnetic snap and ribbon bookmark. It probably stands among the prettiest of my writing books.
One of the book’s most important qualities will be, of course, the contents in which I choose to write inside. After considering many possibilities I ultimately decided upon filling the book with…
ANOTHER STAGE PLAY!
This new play, tentatively titled Yet Another Worthless Play, revolves around the story of two librarians who tend to a secluded library by the shore of a town called Seaglass. The play will involve zombies as well. Unlike my previous play, Master Manderdorke, I plan to post this play here on this blog. I will release Yet Another Worthless Play scene by scene as completed. No schedule for the scene releases but I will certainly announce the latest scenes in future blog posts. Already posted, the play’s page is located in the sidebar to the right with my other writing. The first scene along with the accompanying character list are released as well. I am excited for this second play and hope my readers will also enjoy it.
