It's Almost September, Should I Binge?

August 24, 2013

In case you don't know, I'm talking about playwrightbinge, not binge eating donuts or anything… Although right now, that sounds fantastic.

No, what I'm wondering if I should try and submit 30 scripts next month. It's an bi-annual challenge, like 31 Plays in 31 Days, except it pushes folks to submit a play for each day. I did it last September, and I did it last March… And I got some productions, readings, and one publication from pushing myself to submit so much… And that's good. BUT, I am exhausted, and I'm about to start grad school. I'm not sure putting more stuff out there is the best idea for me right now, but maybe not pushing myself is also a bad idea….

In the end I'm pretty sure I'll just suck it up and get the plays out. BUT, a vacation sounds pretty sweet right now, I'm not going to lie. I suppose I'll rest sometime next year…

Anyway, playwrightbinge starts September 1st, if you're a playwright looking for a new challenge once 31 Plays in 31 Days is done, you should seriously think about taking part.
