Last night the reading I had went really well. I don't want to bore you all with the details, but the reception was mostly positive, and people were convinced that I was going to get this produced somewhere.
Really? Little old me?
So I guess I'm good at this writing thing. But I was thinking about it, and about what's out there and how to make myself different, and then I realized...
There isn't enough sci-fi plays.
I'm serious about this. I know I posted about the one Capek wrote, the one where the word robot originates, but there aren't a lot that come to my head. Or any, really. It's something absent on the stage. Does it need to be on stage? Not really, I can understand why film and tv work better for the genre. Doesn't mean I'm not going to try though.
I think I mentioned to you guys that Lady Gaga's Bad Romance inspired me to write a story (can't really look up links while at work) but now that I think about it, play makes a lot more sense. I'm partly writing this down here because I don't want to forget this idea, I think it could be rather riveting if I do it right.
I had a hard time sleeping last night, in the same way children can't fall asleep Christmas Eve. Something exciting is happening and it's hard to rest. Well I think the exciting thing that happend for me, after all the feedback and the whirlwind of ideas in my head, is that I realized I've been a writer all this time, and I don't have to let that go. Officially, I'm calling myself a writer now. And I feel like if I don't continue writing, I'm denying myself and all those people who were touched by my work something that at least some people out there want to connect to.
