New Songwriting Class Finishes Monday

Still working on the homework for the final class tomorrow.  Got the chord progressions for the last of the Love's Prick songs. Just need to fill out the structure, melody and rhythm, figure out how to play it.

2018 November Playwriting Challenge Is Underway

Managed to compile a Top Ten list for theater in 2017, the cross section of it that I saw anyway, along with links to all the coverage I wrote up last year.

Also, posted a Top Ten list (of what I saw) for theater in 2016, the good, bad and indifferent that year.  Check it out.

Farewell to Playwright Friend Sean Grathwol

One of the first writer friends I made after moving to Minnesota over 25 years ago died unexpectedly in his sleep over Labor Day weekend 2017.  It was good to see old friends at his memorial, though the reason was sad.  I posted some thoughts about Sean online, to share a bit of who he was with people who didn't have the privilege of knowing him.  It's been a year, but I'll leave it up till the end of 2018.
