Of all the writing I've ever done, I love playwriting best for a number of reasons. It's small, it's intimate, and it's personal. It's you, the paper, your head and no one else. You are writing for yourself, your vision, your passion, and you are the only one you have to please. If in the process you want to veer right, you veer right. If you want to make a sudden U-turn, that's okay too. It's totally your call, your ballgame. Ah, freedom.
It's not always easy getting produced and although I have been very lucky in that regard, I do have some plays that haven't had that opportunity yet. But when you do get produced, I promise you, you will never feel the highs that you will feel. Its hearing the lines you've sweated over brought to life by gifted actors. It's the loud applause the audience gives you at the end of the evening to further assure you how right you were in your choices. Of course on the other hand you will never feel such lows when that doesn't happen. Then it's very important for you to be kept away from sharp objects.
But most of all, for me, I love the comradery shared with the cast and the crew, the feeling that we're all in this together and somehow we're going to make the play work. The words are what they bought and unlike any other media, there is a total respect for them, total dedication to them. Call it pride of ownership but that makes all the difference.
