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.
