WE ARE MANY: a clinic

Last weekend, Playmarket provided a one-day clinic for We Are Many, a newish play inspired by the Womens Mau Movement who continued passive resistance against the New Zealand occupation in 1930s Samoa.

The clinic was followed by a public reading where tears were shed — a good thing for a writer seeking audience emotional engagement, even at ‘just’ a reading — and feedback was gratefully received.

Many hugs and thanks to:

Phone a Friend

I was deep in a script and I needed some kind of transition scene.

Call me delusional but I finished my writing day feeling like a boss, and I’m going to hold on to that.

Process Anecdote #103

I’ve just written the end of my latest project: my fingers were a blur over the keyboard as they typed direct from my subconscious onto the screen.

It felt rather satisfying getting these last few lines down:

Here’s the thing, though: that’s all I have in script-form at the moment. I have a three-page treatment I threw together a few months ago but it’s dry and plot-heavy.

I may have eighty or so pages of script to write but confidence is high: by golly, I know where I’m headed.
