What I was doing was…

Getting started on responding to 1st draft feedback and creating a plan for the 2nd draft of my play, by first clarifying: what is the question at the heart of this play? I ended up with something that feels right and is also about 90 degrees from what the central question has been up until now. What helped was all the feedback conversations I had which developed my thinking, and this morning splitting my time between generating a dozen variations of the question, then going back and refining it until I had something that felt and scanned right and seemed like something I could say to another human being and it would actually make sense. Feels good to have begun this and I’m interested to see that working with purpose can be done effectively in 15 minutes -whaaaat? Next I’m going to clarify the play’s central argument.
