I'm actually blogging from the Revue Cafe at the moment. Writing here and 3 games of freecell has been my routine to rev up ye ole write engine for this project. Momentum is what it's all about. The physical act of typing - hitting the keys so that there is a direct flow from brain to finger tips. Freecell on the other hand is a means to orientate the mind to fall into some form of organization. It's one of the few solitaire games where the player can actually win with every play... and it's all about placement... really prepares me with structure on an intuitive level.

I've always been quite astounded just how we have to trick our brains into performing the way we want it too. I am also amazed how a physical action like typing activates the creative flow... for writers. I suppose it's akin to the physical act of playing an instrument for musicians. I use to edit as I wrote but found that it actually hampered the process... sort of like the start and stop of a football game... the loss of momentum just jerks me out of the zone.

UPDATE 10:21 PM: A good writing day. More than half the show is completed. I was way laid by a meeting in the evening that I called that was unavoidable but I do have tomorrow to finish off the first draft... and I do think I can. Sure, it still needs (a lot of) work but it's actually turning out better than I expected. Then it's a matter of development through rehearsals. Zonthar, if you are reading this... you will receive the show via email by tomorrow evening. Email me your "free time" schedule and we'll get this puppy fleshed out. If any of you are reading this in the morning... Happy (I so don't want to go to work) Tuesday!

    Glad to hear you are making such great progress. I am waiting in anticipation for the final results!

    Cor! The writing process must work wonders for you! I could have sworn you were of darker complexion and of one typing hand the last time I saw you! :)

    We all have our "prep" stuff for writing. My thoughts usually get organized in the shower while waiting for the conditioner to do its "thing"...

    Then again - I write crap, not things that people actually would want to enact on a stage ;-)

    Mellissa - I would not say what you write is crap... it's actually very good. :) And you do have an audience!
