Playwriting

Do what you can do….

30 Days of Development: Lindsay is writing every day for thirty days, and submitting every day for thirty days, and blogging about it every day for thirty days. Whew! Can she do it? Stay posted….

DAY SEVENTEEN

Writing: Nano-Play. Quick and dirty scrawling today.

Thoughts: The first rule of Writing Club, is don’t talk about Writing Club. (Oh wait, that’s a different club. All I’m doing is talking. My fingers are hoarse….) the second rule is, write when you can, where you can, what you can.

Today, I had an hour at my volunteer shift where I looked left and right, saw that there was nothing I was supposed to be doing, no one I was supposed to be talking to, and out came the handy dandy notebook. Came up with two pages which will end the play nicely. Third rule, never go anywhere without a notebook. Or seven. Did you see my pile of notebooks?

Thank goodness I did, because there’s not a lot of extra time today. It’s pre-travel day, we head to St. Louis tomorrow at 6AM. Should be very interesting to see how this is going to go. Not necessarily the writing, there’s lots of down time between travelling and the conference. But the actual posting. I’m going to try to be as organized as I can, but following the second rule of Writing Club and a second act reference to Sunday in the Park With George …. ‘you do what you can do….’

Submission: Ten minute play How Does Your Garden Grow to Live Girls Theatre.
