This Would Be Funny if it Weren't So Infuriating

Posted on November 18, 2010 at 12:00pm 28 Comments

So while I would like to forget about the whole Wasserstein Prize thing, I just can't. Partly because the Director of Communications for the Theater Development Fund, David LeShay, emailed me the day after my blog post about the fund's decision not to award a prize this year because none of the 19 finalists selected by THEIR process was good enough for it. (And yes, they blamed the playwrights, not their own process, until they ran into a firestorm of protest and suddenly changed their minds.)… Continue

Kamy,

I stopped writing for a while.  Stopped doing much of anything after a painful family tragedy of sorts.  Just now re-entering the world of writing.  Will begin anew with my blog post on handwriting and letter writing.  Thanks for your patience.

Thanx for comment. I was finding it fun to read comments and make some of my own, but the flooding! After your comment, I got several mails, I feel one a day , The She Writes Daily is enough of a reminder to look in on the threads. Please help me.
