I love the "gym." I love reading the plays and listening to feedback (when all along I am thinking - this is pretty good and then I hear feedback and think GOOD IDEA!) and cannot do it! Set aside time ... well the phone rings, the teens come home, the dog gets interested in the guinea pig ... maybe as an appetizer..... and the pictures were embedded in my mind.... and what I wrote was ... not so very good. So, I shall play and probably never post one ... but thank-you playwrights and Paddy for the time at the computer reading some really interesting stuff.
claudia, i did the exercise and almost didn't post. but i decided that i trusted paddy to moderate this par tof the forum if someone decided to be outright cruel. i'm glad i posted it. not shakespeare perhaps, but the feedback has helped me to think more clearly about this, and other pieces i shall write in future.
please, do post. if anyone is nasty, i'm sure they shall be outsted! :)
