Cowgirls Don’t Ride Zebras is becoming more and more real as the days go by. Each time I finalize a drawing, I get more and more excited. Auditions for the stage play at CATCO is Kids are next weekend. It’s crazy! You can get audition details here.
This is a completely different experience for me. I started working on the play so long ago that it’s like a new surprise. I haven’t looked at the script for the play in months; I’ve kept my nose in the book version. I’m looking forward to remembering what’s in the play. I remember it being funny.
The thing I’m most afraid of is: will Jack laugh? Will my son, the one I wrote the play for, the kid who is the inspiration and reason for writing this play and this book, enjoy the play? Will he have a good time? Or will he be bored? Will he quote it? Will he pretend to be the characters? Will he sing the songs? Will he care? Oy, the fear is strong. I don’t care if anyone else laughs, if that kid of mine doesn’t, I’m doomed.
On a much, much lighter note, I’m narrowing in on a publication date for the book! It’s going to be in mid-January! I hope to announce the actual date soon!
Keep creating and, as always, be excellent to each other.
