Just about there..maybe
Two in one day huh? Wow...I don't know if this is good or bad heh. Well, here's what I'm feeling like lately. Just a little look into the brain of a man who isn't sure where exactly his play is going. Yup, that's really me. Couldn't you tell from the glasses? Sheesh :)
So I finally got it started and it's already 6 pages. Good huh? Well, I'm not sure. It seems that it's a lot of set up for 6 pages of play. I managed to pull off a 10 page play with four characters and it had a decent beginning, middle and ending. This is just rambling. I guess that's what I get for starting so late though. I sort of know where the story is going but only roughly and I'm scared it's not going to be done by Sunday's deadline. I mean, this is my final play for the class! I have to go out with a bang because everything else so far has gotten A's. This has to be even better dammit. I need to find where to trim it. I don't really have time to start a new one and have it in shape. Plus, I'm not sure what else to write at this point. That's the aggrivating part.
If any of you were following the Zach (he actually spells it with an H...go figure) story from a previous post of mine, I got an email saying there was a new post. Well the boy is home and all I can say is...I'm glad for him. We'll see if he replies to my email, but he seems to be doing alright which is all you can ask for. I think he just wants to be left alone though. Apparently the media exposure sort of pissed him off. Let's face it, would you want to be dragged into the spotlight and basically outted to everyone you knew? The kid is what..16? I feel for him because in his post he basically said that being gay wasn't all there was to being him and I can feel that completely. Hell, I actually hardly think about the fact that I'm gay.
There seems to be a wierd sector that being gay means reading the latest gay mag/book, listening to the latest gay icon music artist, wearing your hair in the "do" of the week, wearing specific clothing etc....well it's all just too damn much. How the hell do you manage to maintain your own personality if you are trying to keep up with all that? I know I couldn't! Hell, I like to dress all gothy and go dance to darkwave, but I know I'm carrying my own goth fashion sense with me. That's what make us really cool as people...everyone is different if only slightly in some aspects. I guess I just get slightly upset when people seem to think of themselves as gay before they think of themselves as an individual.
Ok....well enough of my soapbox. Y'all don't wanna hear that now do ya? So instead I think I'll be sneaky and see if you're really paying attention. So this is a little Tag on Larry, Ryan, Andy and Ger. Three questions only but it's all about you groovy kids :)
You are allowed to communicate with one spirit (eg.dead relative, celebrity etc). Who do you pick, why, and what would ask them?
If you could change one event in your life with no reprocussions to the time line (events that transpire because of that event), would you and why?
You are allowed to become one animal. What animal would you be? (yes you can transform back and mythological creatures are ok answers)
And that's it folks:)
