| ||Returning to Writing Mode: It's Good To Be Back|
I spent Sunday morning sitting at my desk working on the prologue for Alcira. I was reminded what a great feeling it is to write. Writing something new as opposed to rewrites. And I'm entering full writing mode. I'm carrying around a small journal for writing notes and that's exactly what I'm doing. Mainly it's snippets of dialog, though I have a partial monologue.
And yes, it's been a while since I've been in pure writing mode, as opposed to rewrite mode. Both are great modes to be in, but there's something unknown and exciting about discovering the narrative for the first time, about creating/writing something new--that intuitive sense that you're definitely keeping what you just wrote. I'm especially happy with how the prologue ends.
ALCIRA crushes the red plum in her hand. A red stain blossoms on the front of CARMELITA'S skirt.
Carmelita then doubles over in excruciating pain (I can't recall the exact wording) and ends up in the fetal position.
And so begins the play.
