Well, nothing promotes work like a deadline. Unfortunately, I can't find out when the next No Shame show is, but as soon as I do, I'm making that my deadline for having three polished stories that I can effectively tell in less than five minutes. I'm going to be sorting through my memories, looking through old LJ entires and emails, and finding things that are both personal and funny. I think I've got a good story about the time The Show With No Name almost caused a riot in East Austin, and I know I can polish the one I did at Frey -- the start was interesting, but I need more tension and there was little payoff.
BTW, I was reminded when checking the Hideout's website about the "Start Trekkin'" show that the Heroes of Comedy will be doing soon. This will be a weekly long-form improv creating a new episode of "Star Trek" each week, from April 2nd through May 21st with a show each Saturday night. It looks like a blast.
