It’s the first workshop like this I’ve been too in a long time (too long, I guess).
There were a dozen or so of us there and it was a fun, thought-provoking evening of exercises and discussion.
Still mulling everything we went over. Kirk gave us some ideas he uses to get his brain going that can help jumpstart a longer piece (we tried rewriting lines from more obscure Shakespeare plays using modern slang, writing out instructions for a stranger to interact with something we use regularly in everyday life, and writing a letter to someone we know and asking for something we desperately want).
I liked Kirk, liked the crew, and feel like it gives me a broader pallet to work from and license to stretch boundaries a bit.
Good food for thought.
And glad I’m writing this down so I can remember it next time there’s a workshop like this and I’m on the fence about going!
