R is for Rewriting: S is for my Solar Tube
R and S - -- Rewriting and waiting for the SUN TUBE.
With this double blog I should be caught up. Whew!!
R is for REWRITING
Rewriting my script for The Hello Girls.
I usually don't write my stories before I tell them - so preparing this script is a bit intimidating.
But - - for The Hello Girls I am writing a script - because I want a piece that someone else could tell without me or after me. i.e. I am working on a short play and thinking about how to work if out like theater.
Fun and loving it.
The Hello Girls is not a personal story and that is quite a departure for me.
Where did this come from? Last year Michael Toscano interviewed me about my Arlington story for the Senior Beacon. He is a theater critic and so talking about storytelling was a bit of a departure for him.
One of his questions was, " How is anyone else going to tell this story? Aren't you worried about the story dying without you to tell it?"
Good question and it haunted me for months afterwards.
I decided that for this Fringe I would work at being more of a theater piece that someone else could tell.
Its a new challenge. I love it.
S is for my new SOLAR TUBE
I am excited.
The solar tube boxes are sitting in the living room. Tomorrow they will install the SOLAR TUBE
on the roof over the master bedroom. For the first time - ever - this room, which faces North, will be flooded with natural light.
I can't wait.
