Acting & writing

Standard

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again,* being a pro actor is not the best preparation for writing. Why, you might ask?** An actor has a director, playwright, scenic and lighting designer, costumer, and other actors*** to help her create a work of art. A writer has to do it all herself.

*You weren’t paying attention the first time, anyway.

**Or you might not. It’s never stopped me yet.

***Sometimes all of these are impediments, but as I would like to continue working in theatre, I won’t go there.
