One of my most popular posts in the last couple of months has been this one. Not because it rings bells or strikes chords with lots of people, but because it mentions lots of names. It’s the post where I included the full newsletter from Lazy Bee Scripts, The Buzz, because they’d just published “Merely Players“, my first full-length play.
Working at my new job has meant less writing at home, but nonetheless, the latest Buzz is out and it shows that I’ve had a new sketch published, alongside a collection of sketches from TLC Creative. Here’s the relevent paragraph:
Sketches & Very Short Plays
- Not many new sketches this time – in fact, only Damian Trasler’s Vacuuming Sketch – but we’ve also published a new sketch collection in the form of An Hour You Won’t Get Back by TLC Creative (that’s Damian Trasler with David Lovesy and Steve Clark). This is a compilation of sketches with a total run time of, yes, around an hour – therefore enough material to form a complete sketch show (with the added advantage of a lower price than buying the sketches individually.)
I’m a little nervous about letting everyone in on The Vacuuming sketch – I have a feeling it tells you more about my private life than you ought to know… And I’m sorry for not including the full Buzz. It would have improved my page stats, but I felt sorry for the people searching for specific plays or authors and ending up on my blog, instead of at Lazy Bee, where they could actually buy the play they were looking for.
When I’m not making excuses about it, I’m a playwright, writing in particular for community theatre. A year ago I was travelling along a deserted country road, when a blinding light shone out and a heavenly voice boomed “Why don’t you watch where you’re going?” before driving past me in a nippy sports car. Thanks to this experience, I felt led to write “Writing a play for community theatre”, and inspiring e-book available from the TLC Creative website at http://www.tlc-creative.co.uk, or from Lazy Bee Scripts at http://www.lazybeescripts.co.uk.
