We're just getting started, kids.

Writer notes from Jim Jewell, 1448 Playwright. Email received 11:51 PM.

I heard from my director that they had a rough day, but the hard work paid off to my mind and I was very happy with the result. The best thing about the actors and directors ballsy enough to tackle 14/48 is how much better at this than I really am they make me look.

But, no good deed goes unpunished. Goddamned theme. This gig would be so fun without the fucking theme.

Midnight nears and I have an idea I neither know if I can pull off nor whether I should even try.

Which probably means I should. But, somewhere, four actors and a director just shuddered, as though someone walked over their grave.

You know what I didn't know existed? Diet Coke Tallboys. Yeah, fer real. I have one here next to my half-empty kombucha.

Do I seem unfocused? I feel unfoc... hey, wanna ride bikes?

Do you think he should go it? I sure as hell do. 1448 isn't for pussies! Go for it, Jim!

I'm just glad you officially encouraged me on this folly and will therefore shoulder some small measure of the blame.
