Thank, Paddy. It's good to know what works for other writers.

Like you, I spend a lot of time (months) just thinking about the play and the story I want to tell. I find that drawing from my own life makes it so much easier than delving into areas where I'm totally clueless, especially regarding places and cultures that I'm not familiar with.

I've actually started the writing and it's coming along great because I know where I'm going. However, I'm open to change during the process. I'm finding that one of my supporting characters is trying to take over the play, tending to overshadow my main character. I need to make sure my main character has what she needs to carry the entire play.
