That was fun.

The last few weeks have been pretty intense. I’m in the final stages of Yearbook production at work and got to do the previously blogged about live readings over the last two weekends. I had a good time getting out in front of an audience with a manuscript of my own crafting in my very own two hands. And it was hard. I’m not a very practiced live storyteller yet, and while I’ve got decent instincts, I’ve got a lot to learn. In addition, I realized that I’ve spent most of the last two years focused on learning scripted performance and improv with the energy from my creative bucket, and my writing skills are feeling pretty rusty.

So. Puzzle: How do I distribute the small amounts of creative time I have during the school year to work on both writing and storytelling and performance?

I’m not sure. It doesn’t help that I want to do everything.

  1. Hopefully this won’t ellicit too much eyerolling… Could you maybe use your creative writing and storytelling and performance skills AT work? I bet you could take your classes to an entirely different level, one you didn’t even think could exist! Your students would love it. Like maybe Buffy has a misadventure or two and slaughters demons but like in French. I’m serious. And sincere. Fer realzies. Think about it.

    1. Ummm. . . Wait a minute. You, my birthday twin and French teacher BFF, actually think I don’t already do that? Oh sweetie. We have to talk. You don’t understand me at ALL.
