Noun: a co-worker who becomes a friend; WHAT I FORCE MOST EVERYONE THAT I WORK WITH TO BECOME. 13 days into this Notebook musical workshop and I’m feeling very very grateful for Ingrid, who bakes the world’s best salted chocolate chip cookies, who is both vulnerable and collaborative, who brings me good luck crystals to keep in my bra and essential oils to sniff, who gives me half her orange when I’m staring at it with envy, who deserves nine million Trammy’s for her beautiful work on this project, a Trammy of course being the combo Tony Grammy that will be invented JUST for her.

Just slip a three-tiered cookie cooling rack under the tree

for me

Been an angel all year, or have least made hundreds of cookies and only consumed 30-40 percent of them and given the rest away of gifts so surely this gets me SOMETHING?

IT’S AN EGGNOG LIFE FOR ME

December 12th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

IT’S A (LITE) EGGNOG LIFE FOR ME

INSTEAD OF DRINKING COFFEE AND / OR WATER LIKE A REGULAR PERSON TO EITHER HYDRATE OR CAFFEINATE MYSELF I DRINK THIS

WHICH IS EXACTLY LIKE SLURPING DOWN A CUP FULL OF CHRISTMAS FROSTING THAT’S BEEN LEFT OUT IN THE SUN

This View

November 24th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

I have been all over the world, to the bottom of a cave in Thailand, the mansion where they filmed The Sound of Music in Austria, the top of a mountain in Canada, a gas station outside of Beaver, Oklahoma that sold both jewelry and hot dogs, but this, THIS, the view out the back of my Grandparents’ house in Davidsonville, Maryland, IS MY MOST FAVORITE VIEW. See if you can find the tire swing I refused to go on out of cautious fear, that my uncle once climbed a tree to hang; see if you can smell that one time we deep fried the turkey. 💛🍂

Why to write for Kids

November 4th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter
I very highly recommend writing plays that feature kid actors BECAUSE OF THEIR CLOSING NIGHT CARDS, SPECIFICALLY.
HE LOVES ME, OKAY? AND MAYBE I LOVE HIM TOO

Q: what does an adult person do on Halloween when they don’t have kids yet, but are just slightly too old and too tired to fully engage with the grown up kids version of the Holiday?

A: SEASONAL LEGGINGS, the clothing version of a mildly enthusiastic shrug

Keep Austin VERY VERY WEIRD FOREVER

October 27th, 2019 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m in Austin for the weekend for the Austin Film Festival, to talk about myself for 900 hours to anyone who will listen (panels.) Julien Joined me for 47 hours of it and I’m SO GLAD SHE DID. One of my favorite things about Julien Is her ability to find the best foods and the weirdest places anywhere she goes, and then she actually remembers them, and if I’m lucky, she Takes me there. Also for a girl who hates pictures of herself she sure does love photo booths, and remembered a particularly magical one she found here on her last trip, RESULTING IN THESE FOREVER GEMS:

SO MANY HANDSHAKES AT THIS INDUSTRY EVENT:

HIGHLIGHT OF WEEKEND
