If you read this blog at all regularly, I don’t need to tell you what happened to me in 2009. If not, I wrote an opera libretto and published a book, both of which were well received. I also traveled all over America reviewing plays for The Wall Street Journal, some of which were pretty damn wonderful. Best of all, I settled happily into the second year of my marriage to Mrs. T, which has been and will undoubtedly continue to be a rip-roaring success.
What next? Well, I now know what my next book is going to be, and I’ll let you know about that as soon as the ink is dry on the contract. Paul Moravec and I are talking about what our next opera will be, and I’ll let you know about that as soon as (1) we make up our minds and (2) somebody agrees to pay us to write it. And Mrs. T and I are flying down to Florida later today, about which much, much more on Monday, by which time we’ll have seen shows in Sarasota and West Palm Beach. Cool, huh?
New Year resolutions? I’ve made two: (1) Do less. (2) Sleep more. Don’t expect me to keep either one, though.
No Wall Street Journal today, so no drama column today. I’ll see you next week. Have a fabulous year!
