Extracurricular Take Over

pottery-easter-eggs-pictures1It’s no wonder Pap and I can’t find jobs, lately we can’t even find the floor of our tiny house. He has the dining room over run with peanut butter easter eggs, a fund raiser for the pottery festival.   Yummy, beautiful and invasive. 

I have the entry way, pirate-parrot-with-skeleton

the living room and, pirate-jacket-on-manequin

oh yeah, Pap’s closet,  pirate-closetcluttered with pirate costumes and props. 

One of the coolest things about being a writer in a small town is the ability to live your dreams, at least on a small scale.  I’ve always wanted to make pirate costumes, so I wrote a play about pirates for our new community theater.  I have to admit, I think I’ve managed to get pirate creativity completely out of my system.  Eight characters plus a giant octopus, that’s quite a lot of gathering and ruffling in a short period of time. 

The play is scheduled for the last weekend in April, and Pap’s egg sale only goes through Easter, so by May I might have enough of the mess cleared out to actually do some spring cleaning…or to write about fairies.  I’ve always wanted to make fairy costumes….

    You are multi-talented indeed. That small town is lucky to have you.

    Well, if the eggs don’t sell, you won’t be going hungry or awhile ….

    I like fairies and pirates. I would certainly go to your play if I lived in the area.

    I love peanut butter eggs, pirates and fairies. My son in law is a pirate.

    Quilly – That’s what I’m hoping for,mmmmm
    Dave – Arrghh…

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
