Finished a complete first draft last night after a minor change from bobby brown to ray parker jnr (you can guess the reference no?). Now off to Memphis for a week. Intention is to read it there once, twice and then I have a week to make changes before submission to TWP on time (yes!!) 1st August. And then it’s off not looking or writing for two weeks (will allow myself to make notepad notes but no computers)
Enjoyed it as ever and produced something that I think it has lots of strong moments, strong characters and when actors/readers/theatre practitioners get to see it, the strengths will be strengthened and the weaknesses whittled away. The David Freeman or here techniques proved useful and interesting as a start point to jump off from.
