Works in Progress

Hey, in the interest of keeping this regularly updated, here's what I've been working on lately:

1. Pinball Wizards: a three-act about pinball machines, early film, Edison's rivalry with Tesla, and maybe death rays if I can figure out how to incorporate them. This has been my big project lately, and it's coming along very quickly and interestingly. I've come to realize I can't write just comedy or just drama, and I think this is a good thing. So it's a tragicomedy, or a...comic drama...about these two great men competing to invent machines that will amuse Edison's kids. Excitement!

2. Well-water Girls: This phrase has been in my head for awhile, and I just figured out while I was in the shower today how to incorporate it into a story. Look for a clip on here soon.

3. Charlie: This is my new puppy:

Hope to see you all soon.
