The question is do I experiment, and the answer is probably no to most things. The one thing I have done, which I hadn’t written before was my play. I have always written longer pieces such as novels and novellas. When I was told about a playwright course I thought why not.
They had their plays, written as part of the course, shown at the local theatre. A couple of years ago, we wrote monologues, but COVID stopped anything being shown. Now it is our VR360 plays.
They are being edited, so I’m not quite sure when they will be ready, but I am now a commissioned writer. If I hadn’t experimented with writing plays it wouldn’t have happened.
I’ve also experimented with making a blog. My daughter helped me with colour schemes and starting out. It has been only a couple of months and I’m hooked. I’ve read some great writing, and been inspired to write my own.
