A resolution for 2008: Write a play, one post at a time!

December 28, 2007

I received an email from Eden at NaBloPoMo. They’re following their November challenge (of posting every day in that month) with a more daring one: posting every day of 2008! I started the November challenge somewhat late, got sidetracked and never completed it. I’m going to give this one a go.

Instead of just posting anything, I will attempt to write a full play. Some posts may just be one line, some may be stage directions, some may be full-length dialogues. I’m not going to commit to anything more than posting once a day. I’m not even sure what that play will look or sound like. I have no plot or characters in mind at the moment. I will let my intuition guide me. Which, I realize, is not the usual way to go about this, but, hey, why not?…Let’s see how many corners I can write myself in and out of… 😉

I invite you to write along with me in the comments section. Give me your version of where you think the scenario might go. I may or may not follow your lead. We may join up for part of it and split again. It will be a free-flowing experiment. Please keep it clean and fairly void of coarse language. As much as I admire David Mamet, I don’t necessarily see the need to use that language to make a point.

The curtain rises on January 1st, 2008.
