Yaaah! I get to brag a little…okay a lot, but hey I need something to improve my mood after returning from my hols to hear I won’t have a job after 31st Oct. No, I didn’t do anything bad, the company went belly up and I am just one of the casualties. Never mind, something will come up.
Now, back to the bragging. 2 of my 10 minute plays have been shortlisted for the Sydney S&S Festival. That’s right folks, shortlisted not wildcarded (is that a word?). I hadn’t had any luck all year now this. What fun! And as a bonus one of my fellow playwrights, Jac Lord, has had 2 of her plays shortlisted as well. That’s 4 plays from Townsville. Who says this is a backwater?
I have to laugh though as both of the plays chosen are very dark. I am obviously not much of a comedian or romance writer as I sent in one of each of these also. So, drama for me…nah, I’ll keep trying to be funny. I don’t get it, people have been laughing at me for years. I am obviously not mad enough.
BTW, did I tell you I have started a writers group here at Balgal? Well, we now number four. Success is my 2nd name. We may be small but watch this space, we are going to…do stuff…like write. We are S.O.B.s (Scribblers on Balgal. What did you think it meant?) So don’t mess with us.
Okay, time to say nighty night! Cheers for now, Rosa.
