Plan for the semester

I met with my teacher today to discuss this semester. I'm pretty happy with this plan, and my adviser seems to have good impressions of all my  projects. They are, in the fulfillment of my thesis requirements:

- a new full-length project. This will focus on two famous outlaws featured in The Stand. I've got lots of bits and pieces telling this story, but now I will see what sort of complete narrative I can make out of them.

- a revision of a full-length project. I will be going back over the screenplay of The Tailor of Riddling Way. I love this story, and I did a pretty decent job with this project, but I'm excited to have the chance to make it stronger. It's got some definite problems right now that I want to fix.

- a new ten-minute play. Don't know what this will be yet, but I'm sure I can figure it out. I've been pretty good at generating ten-minute plays lately.

- a seminar to be presented to fellows students at the next residency. My teacher liked the idea of my idea to talk about "writing taking the practicalities of theatrical production into consideration." Stuff like "actors can't change clothes in zero seconds" or "keep track of where the props are" and the sort of things you don't necessarily realize if you've never experienced how theater is put together. 

It'll be a lot of work, but I'm pretty excited about it. I think I can do some good work. 

Tonight is my reading. I'm a little nervous, not sure why. But this is a very cool thing that's happening for my writing, so I need to just enjoy it. Thanks to everybody who comes to support me and make me feel less adrift.
