I guess I need to take a break from spamming hot pictures of me on Helena’s motorcycle all over myspace to tell you all that I have a show in NYC next week! At the Public!

(I’m doing 15 minutes of my show “Free?”)
Free? written & performed by Kristina Wong – With more street cred than you can shake a pair of Hammer pants at, Kristina Wong swoops into the NYC Hip Hop Theater Festival to riff on notions of freedom in times that would make Joe McCarthy gasp. Excerpts include a satirical homage to “save the world in five minutes” spoken word, a Flashdance tribute, and an explanation (or un-explanation) of why she prefers life in the almighty closet.
AND THE NOVEL PROGRESSES
In other news, I am putting together the first draft of this novel. Vince wanted to see more pages of it to get a shape of how the story unfolds in order to think about screenplay adaptation. That was motivation enough to get chugging on this. FINALLY I AM GETTING TO WORK ON SEEING HOW ALL THESE CHAPTERS COME TOGETHER! I hear writers average eight extensive drafts before the final one comes together. Sometimes it’s as much as twenty. That sounds about right. This book ain’t in pretty shape yet. Good images but I deperately need to lay this all out and take it all in.
I’M IN PAIN/ NEED TO TAKE UP SEWING
My hands and arms hurt so much yesterday! The combo of stress, crochet, and typing really did them in! I need to really lay off the knitting and crochet. I did buy a sewing machine off Craigslist. A White 2999. But the seller forgot to give me the pedal and it didn’t come with a power cord. So I have to wait for her to settle into her place in Virginia and mail them to me. But the machine was only $20 and it’s a $300 machine! Woo woo!
