You are heremarch 14: Pi day!
march 14: Pi day!
Happy Pi day, Rhinos! I made cookies for my fiance's gaming group--they were supposed to be shaped like the Pi symbol--most of them looked like fat old lady butts.
But I have been editing like a fiend.
For the first play, I have been working on a particularly difficult character. He feels like a place holder for the character who should REALLY be there--but I can't, for the life of me, figure out exactly who the character is who is supposed to be there! It's infuriating. I've never encountered a problem like this. If anyone out there has dealt with it, PLEASE let me know how you fixed it. It might help.
For the second play, I have been doing a lot of research. I did do a first readthrough to jot down notes and such, and I was moved to tears nearly twice in the play. I LOVE THE CRAP OUT OF THIS PLAY. I have never felt like this about a play, and it makes me worry about my objectivity. Still, I am sending emails off to people who can help me with it, and I am going to work on changing the names of the characters to make it make more sense (originially the characters were all spanish, but halfway through, they started speaking Latin). And I am going to seriously start working out stuff with this play. It's got a cast of thousands, so I have a lot of character work to do. I doubt my first edit will be done by the 31st.
How about everyone else?
Naplwrimo runs on love, sweat and your generous help.
