Monkey Business

Time's up. Nicholl applications had to be postmarked today. I'm hoping that somebody in my future spec monkey circle of friends advances in the Nicholl this year. Last year, a couple of Nicholl fellows came from the pool of regular Wordplay posters. Their first hand accounts of the interviews and hand wringing agony (oh, to be a glove on that hand) certainly pulled me into their corners and I was genuinely pleased for them. It was almost like pulling for a friend. Almost, but no banana.

Meanwhile, the early deadline for entries into the Austin Film Festival screenplay competition is May 15th so keep up the monkey business. There's no business like monkey business.
