So, let me tell you a quick story:
My grandpa on my dad’s side came over from China when he was pretty young— grew up in Chicago. He was...
I was going to write about this show and it popped up on my Tumblr dashboard!
I am fulfilling one of my dreams with this show: Staging a Star Trek (classic) scene! Of course, it’s a parody, but I have the PERFECT Captain Kirk, the PERFECT Bones, the PERFECT Spock, and the PERFECT red shirts! Seriously! Come to this show - it’ll be great!
at UCB Chelsea, is the NaNaSkeWriMoSkeShow!
$5, at midnight, come see sketches written as part of NaSkeWriMo!

I did it!! I can’t even express what this did to me. It’s about self imposed deadlines and writing incessantly and goals. I took this opportunity to rewrite some of my old sketches and make them better - make them GOOD. I also wrote a web series (some rewrites necessary here) and in the last stretch where I was 15 sketches late, I wrote the missing pieces form my one person show that I had been working on ever since I took a class with Becky. It created a clarity and focus I didn’t have - that’s what writing on deadline does to me in general. But this time, it was writing on a deadline for ME. I had to focus on MY OWN goals. I know the pieces I wrote for my one person show need to be refined and rewritten - but now I am in a position where I can go to a director and seek help and feedback for rewrites.
Thank you for all those who created the National Sketch Writing Month. It’s an amazing event and I would recommend everyone participate if you can and care about being a writer.
We did it guys - we did it!
Great job all! Kudos to the 30 club! And a warm hug to those who tried!
