“Crazy Rich Asians” from My Certain Points of View: Recommended Reading

As I had explained in advance, this last weekend of the month is incredibly busy for me, and so naturally, there hasn’t been as much time nor head space to come up with something substantial to write for this week. However, with “Crazy Rich Asians” out in theaters for a week and a half now, I figured that re-sharing the links to all the pieces I alone have written about the film prior to and after its release would make for a good Recommended Analyzing post.

Playwright’s Commentary: “Infinite Range”

This year is my second consecutive year of having a one-act play I’ve written be featured in “Stories High;” Bindlestiff Studio’s annual showcase of new works being performed, by way of writing, acting, and directing workshops coming together.

And with that, here is what you missed: Continue reading “What Did I Miss?: The One Day Early Edition (August 5th-11th)”

August Anticipations

While a post like this would be more so expected on any other day, it’s otherwise atypical for me to make announcements like this on a Saturday. But given the magnitude of what I’m about to reveal, I feel that these two announcements deserve the spotlight of my regular Saturday blog post.

So August is actually going to be quite a month for me as both an author and a playwright. To be able to be present in different events where I get to embrace these identities of mine in the same month really uplifts me, even amidst the struggles I’ve been experiencing as a writer recently. At this time, I’m going to go ahead and break down just what you can anticipate from me this month: Continue reading “August Anticipations”
