HOLY GOODNESS, people, I am back.

It has been years since I used this site, but I feel like it's about time I came back. I deleted some of the old stuff, and I will be uploading some new things that I am very excited about.

Currently, I am embroiled in a total overhaul rewrite of my play The Life and Times of Cicero Williams, a play I have been considering since way back when I was a wee bitty fourteen year-old. It stuck in my head, and I spent so much time with the characters that I took on one of them as a screen name, and he wasn't even originally supposed to be the protagonist! I ended up writing the play three years later, in my senior year, and while I was pleased with it at the time, after a while I realized there was so much more I wanted to do with the characters, so many more stories and situations they could be in. It seemed rather... raw. Not as in hardcore, but more like uncooked. Anyway, I finally got around to working on a rewrite, and I'm excited. It's turning out nicely.

Anyway, come back, and I'll have more up soon!

Another exercise we did in class. I liked this one. It should have a picture of a man sweeping the floor of the Lincoln Memorial at sunset attached to it, but I couldn't put in the picture.

DO NOT TOUCH by sharks don't sleep reviews
They say it's 'inappropriate' and that we shouldn't read, but what right do they have to tell us this? Why shouldn't we be allowed to see? DO NOT TOUCH! Supposedly inappropriate for teens.

The Life and Times of Cicero Williams reviews
Ladies and gentlemen, here it is: the play that I have been kicking around for four years, the one that gave me my pen name. It should be 10 minutes 3 scenes , so it may be a bit too short, but this is how it is. T for mild language, but not offensive.
