95: It is difficult to commit to writing. Admit it. Don’t wallow.  Don’t see it as failure. Change your perception of the hurdle, instead of a pen use the voice memo function on your phone to record a monologue or duologue for the play you intend to write. 1st: Find silence. 2nd: Think on any part of the theme that’s swelling inside you. 3rd: Imagine an audience in front of you.  4th: Let Riff. 5th: Repeat your riff, improvize, spit, whisper, shout, be indignant, empathize, seek connection until you hear something that clicks. 6th: Don’t expect it to be word for word let it change every time. 7th: Press record and GO. 8th: After – don’t listen to it yet. It doesn’t need correction or critique. 9th: Accept that you have begun your work.
