Got a rejection of Henry Moore is Melting today. Also dropped 40 query letters for one of my screenplays in the mail.
It’s Friday, so I give you this.
On the bus today, I overheard a fellow (Caucasian) playwright complaining to her companion about how Canadians are actually racist, but they just won’t admit it.
How did she know?
This theater company in Toronto did a reading of one of her scripts. There was a part in the script about how Canadians were being racist towards this one Native tribe and the actors in the reading were like “we’re not actually racist towards this one Native tribe”.
What was the name of the tribe that she was accusing Canadians of being racist towards in the play that she wrote?
She couldn’t remember.
(Whatever, right? I mean, those Native tribes, they’re all the same and everything anyway…)
Really, though, I can’t even…*facepalm*

The composer for my musical does this a lot and I am, in fact, deeply shamed.
