My name's Phil, this is my first NaPlWriMo, and I'm glad to be doing it. Can't wait to see the progress everybody makes throughout the next four weeks.
The play I'll be writing this month is called THE DOPPELS. The inspiration for this play came over the summer, when my boyfriend created digital versions of ourselves in "The Sims." Because the Sims are programmed with customized personalities, we found interactions between the Sims to eerily mirror moments in our own real-life relationship, often to humorous and disturbing detail. It made me think about larger questions of self-duplication - is there a human need to replicate ourselves to understand ourselves? Is it all narcissism? Or is there something deeper behind it?
I have four or so pages down and am hoping to craft a well-made play that's not only really funny, but also explores man's inner desire for himself.
Once again, so excited for this!
Naplwrimo runs on love, sweat and your generous help.
