So I sent a preliminary table reading packet to Jill: character sketches, brief synopsis and unfinished script so that her friends can get a feel for what they’re in for. Basically a lesbian date play.

With the deadline of May 7th for the table reading, I am definitely feeling the needed panic to get into the creative frame of mind. As I told Jill, this has proven to be the most bipolar writing experience for me in that I’m doubting almost every line I’m writing (whereas I don’t feel that way in writing my columns or novel – style fiction.)

Just got to bite the bullet and keep picking away at it. Luckily the characters are robust enough that they’ve started to write their own dialogue, which is always a good sign in my experience.
