And no, it is neither Ed-related nor puerile.
As I may have mentioned, I am writing a play. It will be performed at the International Youth Arts Festival in Kingston, and is the brainchild of Matt and Smári, two lively young turks of the acting variety. My job in this whole malarkey is to translate their idea – “what if you put Andy Murray and Roger Federer in the same changing room before the Wimbledon Finals?” – into a play. So far, so something – a first draft of the thing is about 30% done. I recently hit the all-too-familiar place of readying the script for picking up another day, writing out the outline of what happens next, not being able to help myself and going on to the end, then going ‘…short. It’s too short, dag-nabit’. The time, it will tell, though. As usual. Work is casually planned for the easter break; script handoff is tentatively set for the 15th. Good times, good times. It feels nice to be making something again.
In other news university is going okay, work is good but exhausting. I will not – I repeat, not – turn this into a Wedding Blog, but I might mention that in exactly one year from now I will most likely be happily exhausted and most definitely be married. Which is delightful and strange and frightening in a good-scary sort of a way. This growing up malarkey is quite fun, as it happens.
