Topic Task - Week Fifty-Four

Still no feed back on the children's manuscript, getting quite nervous now. On the positive side the manuscript I'm currently reading/editing is okay, well, good actually. At least I like it. I just hope that when it's read the readers will like it too.

I hope the starting sentences last week stimulated your writing and that you got some good material out of it. Don't forget to drop me a line to let me know how your writing is going. I always love to hear from you.

This weeks topic task is to write a 15/20 minute stage play. You will need to research your market. Find out how to set out a script  and all the whistles and bells you will need. Lighting, special effects and anything else to help your characters.

You'll need to get your scenario worked out, characters developed and think about why these people are together and how that will effect the direction of your story. Once you've completed it, why not change the genre. If it is serious make it comedic, play with the scenario and see what works best. Now comes the harder part, find an outlet for your work. Why not try a local amateur theatre group take a look, they might be interested, or set up a showcase with your writing circle. It is great to see your work come to life on stage and hear the appreciation of a real audience.

So what are you waiting for, get writing.
