Telltales changed my life about a year ago. Mainly out of curiosity, I sent them some writing, even though I’d never really thought of what I did as in any way related to performance. But Telltales organizes readings. It was fun–the first new thing. Then, it was, or could be, something done quickly, something related to a theme picked more or less at random. It was, last but not least, directly related to a flesh-and-blood audience. Now it names an aspect of the way I think about writing.
