Why I’m a writer and not a painter

I have a cold. The upside is I’ve had some extra time to type up notes and scenes for my (very) new project. If your ideas are like mine, they don’t respect your writing hours but pop up whenever and wherever and you better be there to catch them even if all you have to write on is an old crumpled receipt.

About a month ago the idea for the play began to stir in my mind and almost the first thing that came to me was the set. A strong vision of what the staging should look like. What isn’t so strong is my ability to draw but in that moment of inspiration I grabbed a post it and a pencil and drew … that.
I could try and tell you it’s bad on purpose so people won’t steal my ideas, but honestly I’ve never been very good at drawing. I love using colours. I love creating things from different materials, but I never got around to learning how to draw. Maybe there’s still time?

Anywho, I just thought I’d write this little post to highlight that we all have our talents, we all have things we’re naturally good at but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do all the other things too if we enjoy them. Drawing that picture gave me great pleasure in the moment and that’s all that matters!

Have a great weekend!
