The success of my first original play Coffee Shop Confessions is a triumphant victory. Yes, I overcame obstacles to even write it, then to gather the cast, set the dates, rehearse, and all the while fight down self-doubt and artist angst. After seven sold-out shows, we truly did carry the day. I’m still carrying it with me. Maybe I’m in denial, but it doesn’t feel over. Krista said, “It’s not over. It’s just the beginning.” I’m going with that. Who knows what will happen next?
