Once again, I love digging through old things and finding lost treasures. Today I saw two scripts from old shows I once performed. The memories are special. And, that history inspires me more.
And, since I’m talking about plays, here’s a chance to discuss a couple of ways to write good characters. Think about how a playwright has to create their protagonists and antagonists. You have to think about how that character moves across the stage, maneuvering within the space they have to work in and to the other characters. In a book, you have more space to move your characters. But think about how they move in a room, in an office, in a cemetery, etc…
I’ll post a couple of the videos from those old theater days. Warning, I’m no Anthony Hopkins. By the way, here’s the link to the interview I did recently with Brian Gordan Sinclair, the man who is channeling Ernest Hemingway.
Remember, write, right now.
