This was a terrific experience. I am so happy to have been part of it and to have had Bridgette, Susan, Rod, Pat, Karl, Morgan, Jennifer, and Kat to play with. It was inspiring to see how everyone interpreted the prompts. I think one of the things that I enjoyed the most about the process was the interplay of ideas and characters between all of us. It was impossible for me to keep up with the reading, or the writing goal of three a week to be honest (sadly), but I found so many compelling characters and stories in what everyone was writing. For my own writing, I loved being able to switch cadence between silly and more serious. It sounds a little awful, but I also liked the freedom that I could abandon a character or story without worrying about it, which made it easier to let different ideas flourish. Even though some of the prompts were more challenging than others, I found that I had so many ideas every week I just couldn't get them all down onto paper. I think I have two or three almost done, partially started, or otherwise not finished plays for each week. I have enjoyed the good natured competitive fun Jennifer and I had with this as well.
Jennifer did such an amazing job as lead writer for this. Very impressed!
