I’m not gonna lie, I don’t have much energy to write long this week. I’ve got bronchitis and all I really want to do is curl up in a little ball of misery and sleep.
But this is also a great time to reflect, and dream. I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had much time to daydream (which I think is important as an artist). I used to love to write, and I still do, but being at the theatre 24/7 either acting in or producing shows has just drained a lot of my creative juices.
I think my body has put me on a forced vacation. I wouldn’t complain except it comes with a drippy nose and nasty cough. Thanks, body.
But I’m also going to use this time to start sketching out a couple of outlines for plays that I’ve been meaning to write for a couple of years now. Sometimes it just takes some time putting down on paper those little bits and pieces that have been floating in the ether to really get the whole thing going. And considering I’ve been on the ‘in development’ list at The VORTEX for at least 2 years now, it’s about time!
