The future!

I am believing I will actually have my plays produced next year. Play one is ready for submission, play two will hopefully be finished in two weeks. I have so many ideas for other plays to write that my head feels full. I really want to believe that what I'm doing is good, that I should be writing, that I should plunge ahead into plays three (urticaria and anxiety and social media exclusion) and four (trailer park) and five (mom?) that I want to just do it without worrying that they will be successful, that I should just trust myself and write.

And I have my whole life ahead. It's not a midlife crisis, it's Columbus heading to the New World. It's a voyage of discovery. I'm recreating me every day. I never knew who I would be twenty years ago, and I have no idea who I'll be in twenty more years. I have two more lifetimes at least before I die, and if in one of those lifetimes I become a playwright, I'll die (at the end of that one) happy. I still want to die with someone I love utterly holding me in their arms, but maybe that is a lifetime four thing. And this lifetime is about making other dreams happen. And about trying to be the most amazing me possible. Oh, and about saving for retirement, yeah, really boring but it's in the cards. And with luck I might get to have a dog again. Lifetime four I get to have a cockatoo. It's gonna happen. SQUAWK!

What a fantastic approach. I'm going to have to try that.

Reading this made me happy. Also made me think of what I want my next lifetime to be.

Yes, I am interested in hearing what you have planned.

Once I know, I'll share.
