1. NaSkeWriMo kicks off today!

    Good luck sketch writers! Make your thirty this month!

    Record your progress and post your sketches on our website.

    We’ll be posting periodic updates with advice, resources, encouragement and information about opportunities to have your sketches read and performed!

    If you’re putting together a reading, performance, or workshop and want to connect with other writers/actors, send us a message and we’ll give you a shout out.

  2. NaNaSkeWriMoSkeShow Sign Up Form!

    Hi New York-based NaSkeWriMo participants!

    On Friday, October 11th at midnight at UCB Chelsea, we will be putting up a show featuring sketches written as part of NaSkeWriMo. Participation in the show is open to anyone who wrote as part of NaSkeWriMo. Just sign up with this form and you might be able to perform your favorite piece from this month!

    We the hosts will go through all the submissions and include as many as we can. If you don’t know any performers, we will be accumulating a pool of actors to fill roles. (any actor who wants to be involved, please email us at naskewrimoshow [at] gmail.)

    Sketches should be no longer than five minutes and should have minimal tech cues, since the tech guy will be doing this cold.

    Deadline to sign up is Wednesday, October 2nd at midnight. If accepted, we’ll inform you by Saturday the 5th.

    If you have any questions, you can let me know at naskewrimoshow [at] gmail.com.

    Sincerely,
    Jon and Will

  4. Half way mark!

    Where did the time go? September is already halfway over, and with it, so is NaSkeWriMo. If you’re falling behind and want to hit your thirty, now’s the time to catch up!

    But seriously, say you have written k sketches; then you are currently (15-k) sketches behind and can catch up by writing two sketches per day for (15-k) days, or you can write 3 sketches per day for approximately [(15-k)/3] days (where the square brackets denote the greatest integer function), or—if you are very daring—write four sketches per day for a maximum of four days, necessary only if you haven’t already begun.

    Or better yet you can never think about math again and do comedy instead. Happy writing y’all!

  5. The Third Annual NaSkeWriMoShow is coming!

    In case any of you are starting to feel the strain, here’s some news to keep you going as we near the second half of the month!

    We just got confirmation from Mr. Nate Dern that the UCB Theatre will again be hosting the NaSkeWriMoShow, our celebration of all the great work you guys have been doing.

    We’ll have a set date and submission information soon, so stay tuned to this space!

  6. Sketch Resource Center

    scottcreynolds:

    This is a new thing, in the vein of the IRC boards, for sketch. It’s one of those things that becomes more useful the more we use it, so, make it happen! Share! Plug your show! Tout your directing skills! Form a writing group!

  7. I think Google changed how Google Docs works since last year, because when I click on a lot of new sketch links, this is what I see!
If you use Google Docs, remember to change Who has access to be Public on the Internet or Anyone with the link. (If you actually want your sketch to be private, remember that you don’t have to post a link at all.)
