So persistence is paying off for me. I just found out that my piece The Re-up has been selected for the May 2 Sing-for-your-supper! Some details here.
I'm pretty excited, especially as I had to made quite an effort to get it in on time. I've gone through my list of submissions, and this now brings me to 3/8. In at least one or two cases, I was a bit too late and the slate had been set. (And for better or worse, the curators seem to feel that a piece resubmitted the following month is "stale.") I would probably have been more content had I made it to 4/8, but it's still a pretty decent batting average (0.375).
As I mentioned before, I will probably be focusing on longer pieces (including expanding my very first successful SFYS submission -- Straying South -- into a full length play), though if I feel inspired, I'll write something short and send it off.
But for now, I will enjoy the accolades that come from getting even a short piece up on stage. Hope to see some of you there. Ciao!
