I had my “against all odds” experience a few weeks ago. I just about managed to produce a new short script, that I had been thinking about/researching for months, and deliver it to a new writing theatre company. There was every reason to not produce the script – no internet, frozen MS Windows, time, immobile, sleeplessness, busy-ness, exhaustion – but I did. In fact, I would argue that it put me back on the straight and narrow.
The new script had a sharing, and was kindly valued, so I can now consider future development. That short script is part of a more substantial work that will help to see me through the winter, I hope. The lesson for me is just write the script you have been contemplating, perfect later – that removes the pressure of perfection that can sometimes be crippling.
