Wednesday began as a slumber party for one (and a cat); I could not get on my feet. I had a slow wander along the False Creek seawall home from a lunch with a long-time friend and former boss — David. Walking for Chris.2 is substantially different than it was for Chris.1; I walk slower and for shorter distances. Errands and cleaning filled the rest of my day-off from scriptwriting.
I have finished draft 1-A of A(r)mour: The Defiant Dress - the play!
Add to that the fact that I’ve finished seven of the twelve dresses I need for A(r)mour: The Defiant Dress – the exhibition, and you realize why I took myself out for a nice lunch. I am truly amazed and happy.
I applied to Boca for the residency a week ago. Their deadline is in six days, so I have six days to produce draft 1-B to submit to them to, hopefully, help convince them to choose me.
I’m very happy with 1A. I say that knowing that 1-B will be better and smoother and that by the time I start the residency — if I get it — that I’ll have draft 2 by then — and it will be the result of a reading with, and feedback from, actors. It's draft two because it will incorporate objective input.
