Slow going

13 04 2014

I have to finish writing the last three acts of a four-act play by Tuesday and it’s difficult. I think people have this idea that writers can just sit at a computer and words flow through their fingers on the keyboard, but it’s really not like that at all, at least for me. I have to be in the right mood, in the right setting — but I think most importantly, I have to know what the hell I’m writing about. One reason why this is going so slowly is because I wasn’t sure where the story was going. I knew important plot points but I didn’t necessarily now how these points were connected. Being self-aware about everything finally has its positives though: I realized I needed to map out what I was going to write so I made an outline/beat sheet, which helped. Now it’s just a matter of getting to it and finishing it before Tuesday… wish me luck.
