Weekly Ramble #16

The show I wrote is looking exceptional. All projects go through that uncertain phase where you dont really know if the whole deal is going to work.

Last night for me came that feeling where everything has come together. I can compare it to that moment when you reach the 50,000 word milestone in a first draft, also known as the moment you realise you’ve got a book and it works.

Yesterday saw that moment I knew we have a show and this whole deal is going to work. Having written books, blogs, a one act play and now a full length pantomine I think this project is the one I am most proud of. Writing is normally a solitary lonely task, but for this project: Beauty and the Beast; the story is being told by a wonderfully gifted cast, stage crew, set builders, artists, front of house team, choreographers and Directors all of which are working together to put my words into something much more. I have zero credentials in selling a thing. I couldnt sell shit to the flies but the people I stand with in telling this story are doing that for me and together we’re gonna tell one hell of a story that will immerse, entertain, inspire and captivate. The symptom of that will be proving that I am a capable story teller and this is my dream…
