After the lab, I celebrated the outpouring of love and then went back to re-writing the play. I tried to infuse many of the notes that I received from my team, some of which came in a follow-up conference call. I jumped into the revisions with enthusiasm but soon hit a wall. The story wasn’t coming together. In fact, it was getting worse. I saved the new revisions and closed the file. It was frustrating, to say the least. Then I realized that it’s okay to hit bumps in the road when writing. Most of all, it’s okay to put the script away and come back to it. Now I’m approaching the changes with a sense of refreshment. I’m re-outlining the play to configure a draft with fewer characters in hopes of seeing it as a full production. It’s hard work, but I know I’ll get it right.
