So much writing

29 04 2014

Got my play up to fifty pages and revised everything today. For those who think writing is easy: I don’t think people realize how mentally exhausting it can be to constantly wrack your brain to come up with words, characters, events, conflict — all in a believable way. I don’t know about other people, but I write fairly slowly because I’m constantly processing ideas and rejecting about 75% of them before I ever get to writing anything down. Not to mention the subject matter of whatever you’re writing, like a depressing play about a guy who is dealing with grief, can alter your mood and your writing pace.

Sigh. This is me ranting about what’s been my life for the past few days, but it’s really not that bad. Especially when I can get up and eat ice cream and watch porn while I think, which is more than I can say for any job I’ve ever had.
