As of…early, early this morning…I finished the first draft on the stageplay, Assumptions.
Now the hard part is over….AND…now the real work begins.
Being a writer—exhilaration….agony….AND…for some reason, most of my work gets accomplished during the hours of darkness. Then, you have a whole day to get thru–a day when you’re already used up. Where’s the energy going to come from to get thru the day job?
Oh well…if it was easy…..yada, yada, yada…
Anyway…now that the first draft is done…now the real work can begin. But, I’m starting to let myself believe this project may actually see completion. It’s the most difficult writing project I have ever undertaken….or probably will ever undertake. We have a ton of work ahead of us. I sent the draft to my co-writer, and we will delve into it.
But still…this project has lived in my head for almost 4 years. I didn’t think this day would ever come. To pull a book/screenplay/stageplay out of a human. It’s not normal. It’s not easy.
So…pause for a moment with me, and raise a glass (any beverage will do) in salute! Accomplishment!
