I'm the host, which is super useful, because it makes me clean and reorganize the house. It will force me to shift the boxes and suitcases full of Mom's stuff (with more to follow), into the basement guest room for now. That, and the writing room, and my bedroom to a certain extent, all need to be reclaimed from the boxes. But that's a project for Tuesday. For Monday, I need to get the first floor of the house, and the two bathrooms, ready for guests.
And I need to write something.
Before I left for Dad's funeral, I had a meeting with David, the artistic director of Threshold Theater, about the TV Boyfriend script, and turning it into a two person play. And of course I printed out a fresh copy to work off of and took the script with me to PA, for all that downtime I was going to have (which never materialized)
Tonight I have a meeting with James, the director of the Threshold production of my play Spellbound, hopefully this spring if the funding comes through. We're just going to have dinner and talk over the script, see what questions he might have, look at things to potentially revisit for new rewrites. They want to try and have a public reading of the script sometime in January, to start raising the profile of the upcoming production. I've got the script in the hands of some friends to read and respond to certain elements. Need to follow up on that to.
Then get to work.
So that's a positive, forward-looking thing.
Gotta have those.
