What I was doing was…

A whole day writing with the lovely writerly people of @writershq and focusing on some more character development work for the new draft of my play. Wrote pages of stuff about the characters’ lives, went off on a diverting tangent about genetic encoding and ectogenesis and finished on some interesting character relationship work. What helped in gaining some insights into developing light and shade for my main character was some inspiration from Stephen Jeffreys’ excellent book ‘Playwriting’, specifically exploring character relationships through wants and likes and dislikes, which I ran with. Feeling ever closer to being able to see how individual scenes will need to change. Got a few more questions-to-self to explore next before briefing myself on specific scene work.
