The Story is.....
The story to date is... all about being pressured with a deadline to get more moulah, during a period of ridiculous amount sof work and drama. People around me kicking off left right and centre. How to find the quiet even to think. The dramturg comes up top -our three hour session is really stimulating making me think very hard about structure. Going back in time remembering events, chaat hits new stories and stuff - so much happens !! Approaching a back story process in a very new way for me. On her advice I have read Alan Sillitoes book version - absolutely cracking so much more to dig into there The lead characters anger, and what he calls his 'cunning' are facscinating. There are some many links for my story definitely - a monologue I will write - shared our East Midlands back ground, a lot of rich context that I will plot in another time another character another life Last night I started free writing from my head - theres so much there but at this stage I let it pour out knowing full well that later on I will be cutting and pruning at it I have no names yet - no full tale just lots of propositons if some one asked me 'its about overcoming adverisity but is much more than that I realised this when I was researching Phyliss Hyman's story a magnificent Black Diva- her suicide having such an effect on me
