My blog begins! It is Monday night. In three short days my plays will receive their first professional staged reading. I have made quite an effort getting the word out to friends and colleagues and perhaps this is what finally motivated me to create the oft-considered blog, Writer on the Side. It's a blog for people who write--plays, poems, stories--in the stolen moments between earning money, driving kids' carpools, and generally managing a busy life. What drives us to the keyboard when others go to sleep or reach for the remote? Why do we dare to dream of publication and production? If you've made it happen, or if you're still just dreaming, share your stories of writing on-the-side.
