Thursday 19th and Friday 20th
So Thursday, I had a five hour flight from Buffalo to Phoenix for the Arizona State Thespian festival. And it was one of those ‘lively’ flights: active children (and I’m being really polite when I say active) talkative seat mates ( do I really need to know the months in which all your brothers and sisters were born AND your children?) so while I could have used with a rest, it was a total work flight. I got four more scenes through second round re-writes and had time to practice my workshops. Booya.
Friday, yeah I had visions I’d find time to write. Delusions more like it. I taught five workshops, manned the Theatrefolk table and saw a production of The Bright Blue Mailbox Suicide Note. A slightly busy day.
No matter. I had great response in my workshops, I was totally inspired by the production, and had a couple of lovely conversations about the importance of process in high school drama. No writing, but all valuable. So, so valuable.
