So what about that book I was writing? I assumed I was finished. Well at least I got to the last page. Now, amidst differing opinions from a number of people who have read it, I am pushing forward in the writing process.
The past few weeks, however, have consumed me with memorizing lines, blocking, stage business and rehearsals, so my book is back on the shelf. I will begin again on the editing next week.
I’ve decided to take constructive criticism, but I won’t change the integrity of my work. I believe this is part of being a confident writer. You own the book. It’s part of you and who you are. You have invested a number of months compiling it, rewriting, adding sub plots, etc. so it is connected to you, your brain and your imagination.
Anyway, sometimes we need to take a break from our work and then return to it again at a later time. So this weekend, my home will be the theatre as part of a fun cast and great director. See you next week.
