Hi. I'm sorry to hear that you're no longer writing plays, but I just wanted to say that I also stopped attempting to write them, too, because I felt unhappy and frustrated with spending a lot of time and effort writing a lot, being a perfectionist at trying to make sure the manuscripts were in the proper format, etc., only for my work to be rejected.

Plus, it's difficult when a person is from a different generation and socio-economic class than others in the industry.

Thanks, for giving an update and being honest. With coming across so many playwrights with produced plays and awards, it gave the impression that "success begets success," and that, once a playwright receives an award, that they automatically receive more plays produced, more success, etc. It's nice to know that I'm not the only person who hasn't been successful.
