I am my Own Play

August 26th, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter

Kind of like the character in the play I’m working on, for like five years I’ve been meaning to volunteer with New York Cares, and I FINALLY attended an orientation.  In the play, the character gets involved for sort of selfish and strange reasons, it turns out, but does badly want to help.

There, in the weird theater in the children’s room at the West Village public library, I felt like I was INSIDE of my own play, inside of this fictional person I created that is also sort of myself. And when we had to share with our neighbors why we wanted to get involved, I opened my mouth, and out poured some nonsense about being a playwright and doing research kind of, but wait, ALSO WANTING TO HELP, and my neighbor looked at me like I was insane, and there I was, inside of my own play. But for real: it’s a really amazing organization and I can’t wait to get started.

talking

August 25th, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter

The Lark invites playwrights they’ve worked with to come in and talk to their interns about their experiences, and yesterday, I did that! I had forgotten how nice it is to talk about playwriting. It always reminds me that in a world with vast amounts of information about places and things and theories that I strive to understand and know, but oftentimes fail, there is one thing DO know a lot about, and that is the writing of the drama play. And in talking about it, I feel like I learn even more about it, and my own relationship to it. So please feel free to invite me to talk to you, anytime, and I will surely say things.

I dreamt

I brought baby kitty with me to my high school reunion. Martin Luther King was there, and there was roller skating. NO MORE WHITE WINE BEFORE BED.

The Big C

August 24th, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter

I like it! I think I really like it! I studied the pilot a while back then finally watched it. Who knows how long she will actually be able to keep the fact that she’s dying from her family – perhaps the whole season??? I don’t know. I don’t really know where it’s going. But I love her character, I love the humor and the tone. And I want to write for it. And so, I will just put that out into the universe. And then The Secret will pretty much get me a job writing for this show.

again, HOW INTERESTING

August 24th, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter

For reasons I will maybe later reveal, today I  set out to research the richest towns in the America. Of the top 27, about 50% were located in New York, %40 in Cali, and the remaining 10% – a few random Texas, Colorado and Illinois. WHO KNEW!

MoMA!

August 23rd, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter

Lily and I went today, sure that we would be the only people there, and sure we would have a transcendental experience. Sadly, there were OTHER PEOPLE there. But we still managed to transcend just a little bit, here and there. And now, pictures of my favorite things!

And last but not least, THIS THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

could it be

August 23rd, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter

That Mr. Gaye provides the most spectacular, least distracting, most invigorating background to writing music ever? It could be. And also, it is.

Runners-up: Fleet foxes,  instrumental /baptist hymns, Joe Pug, animal collective, bonnie prince billy, Merle Haggard, Punch Brothers.

/ ‘Heaven must have sent you from abovvveeee’
