Summer To-Do List: Play

A couple of weeks ago, the lovely lady over at Living in the Moment made her very own summer to-do list, which prompted me to do the same. Except it took me a bit longer, because…reasons.

Anyway, it was actually incredibly helpful for a busy Laidig such as myself; the more I thought about it, the more I realised that I have a bit of a mountain to climb this summer. So I have decided to make a little series over the next few months, partly for myself, but mainly because right now, I just have a lot to do.

Now, don’t get too excited, but for the first time in a very long time, I actually have something to promote.

Easy, now.

The biggest to-do on my list is to finish this play. I have no choice on that one. Because if I don’t, there will be hell to pay from many, many places. I mean, it must be official because it’s on two websites and on Facebook; one for the venue, and one for the Fringe Festival’s programme.

“A pantomime dame takes a deep breath and steps onto the stage in one of Shakespeare’s most challenging roles.”

While my blurb is only marginally inaccurate – I have no idea which of the many roles would be the most challenging, nor do I intend to propose one – it does pretty much what it says on the tin. There will be Shakespeare. And there is a panto dame. There is also a panto horse, a conspiracy in the theatre world, and boy who’s name may or may not be Sue. Welcome to my current existence in amongst all the other items on my list:

Seven days remain to complete my first draft and, as it stands, I’m two scenes off of done. Or at least, in terms of the scenes I have planned so far. I’m already uncomfortably aware of the gaps in my story, but my inner editor is currently under nail and tether until I reach the end. And I will reach the end.

And move on to my next task.

  1. Best of luck to you on completing your draft…even though I’m just seeing this with approximately half of your time to complete it already having passed by.

    • If I hadn’t have been reminded twice yesterday by the person who will be grading the thing, I would’ve told you off instead for the reminder :) Thank you!
