15 Minute Update #5

Hey!

So, it's been a while.  Things have been crazy with work.  I've had the extreme pleasure of working on the Canadian Stage hit-sensation London Road, playing until February 9, 2014 at the Bluma Appel Theatre in Toronto.  If you get a chance to catch this wonderful creation by Alecky Blythe and Adam Cork, you will not be sorry!

Also, Mike Ellis and I have started our own YouTube channel called Eleven Oh-Four.

Inspired by Mental Floss and Vlog Brothers by John & Hank Green, Mike and I started a similar list-themed channel where we post videos to each other weekly.  Mike and I used to have writing meeting each week via Skype where were would discuss the projects we were working on and throw ideas back and forth for future things.  It was a brainstorming/catch-up/inspiration type chat which always led to hilarity (as things usually do when Mike and I get together).

Whenever I go under contract for a new show, we find it hard to arrange a time we can meet - this is where the idea for Eleven Oh-Four came from.  In lieu of an actual Skype meeting, Mike and I could keep the dialogue going even during the busy periods.  As well, it would give us some exposure.

Why Eleven Oh-Four?  Well, thanks for asking!  We would always have our Skype meetings at 11:04am.  This came out of me always missing our 10am meetings and a witty banter back and forth between Mike and I while attempting to arrange a better time.  I suggest 10:45, Mike came back with 10:52, I responded with 11:01:30 and Mike finished with 11:04, so that was the time we would meet (and yes, we did usually wait until 11:04 to dial - that's just how we roll).

After discussing the concept for the channel (I'm a HUGE John & Hank Green fan, so of course I wanted to be like them!), we decided that doing lists of 11 things in 4 minutes would work out well and fit the name.  Thus, Eleven Oh-Four was born!

So that's what's been up in my world lately.  Trying to improve on my Twitter-ing, but writing-wise, Eleven Oh-Four is the biggest thing that Art Thief has been working on.  I'm still keeping up with www.yearwithoutsex.ca as well.  Also, the new book in the Little Logan Series has been printed.  I guess I have been kind of busy.  Anyhoo, I'll try to get Logan up ASAP and I'm working on finishing Professor Cormac.  Just keep chipping away!

Thanks so much!
