Playwright?

 
The Ludington Writers offered a workshop this weekend on writing plays. A topic in which I am very interested. Despite a serious lack of sleep, I'm so glad I went. Here's our group. I know... it just looks like a bunch of people, but action shots of people pushing pens and flipping papers really aren't an improvement.

We each had to turn in a one-act play of about 10 minutes length. We spent the weekend discussing them and working on making improvements. Mine is called Kiss of the Butterfly, and it needs a little work, but I actually think it turned out pretty well.

The weekend ended with an evening where several of us read excerpts from things we had written. I did a couple of scenes from the play. After that, the leaders of the workshop, who are award winning playwrights, read two of their (short) plays, a couple poems, a short story, and Arnie sang.

Here they are, Arnie Johnston and Deborah Percy.

That's a nice size group. Sounds like fun. So will we all be going to a Broadway opening of your play one day?
