Deadlines and prompts work for me as well. AND reading others works--particularly encouraging as I read so many imaginative and unexpected characters and twists and turns. I ran out of premium gas the last week, and wrote more on lead. The other interesting aspect was I went back and re-wrote some of the pieces and re-submitted them when I realized I had lost the logic. AND I have a few pieces I did not submit. It's always good for me as a writer to be able to look at my work and say, "Yeah, that's poop, but keep it to remind you about poop." I should have a file entitled "poop". I really enjoyed "corresponding" with y'all through the messages and responses. Again, thank you.

TAKEN by Susan Jackson
Starring Diana Brown (nominated BATCC best actress) as Laney, Marissa Keltie (AEA) as Jessie, Michael J. Asberry (AEA) as Sargent Bakley, Laura Lundy-Paine (Artistic Director of VIRAGO Theatre company) Other actors TBA.
TAKEN begins with a newspaper article of an evicted tenant who commits suicide while living in a San Francisco apartment. The face is familiar; is it Corrie's brother Ben who was forced out of her family's (husband Robert, daughter--Jessie) home eight years ago because he was a drug addict? Corrie travels to San Francisco to meet with the enigmatic Sgt. Bakley at a police station, where she hopes to identify/or not, the body of her brother. Against everyone's better judgment, Corrie decides to face the landlady who evicted him.
