Last year when I was in New York City, (remember that? I do, with longing, every single minute of every single day...), I asked you for writing assignments. I said I would work on them in my own time and post them here, and email you to let you know your personal assignment had been completed. I finished one called First Kiss that was assigned to me by Adriana Bucz, and performed it as a story at the storytelling event, The Flame, last year. Since then I have been working on some of these assignments, but haven't posted them, I suppose out of some bit of fear. Yeah, yup, that's right, writing is frightening to me. The most treasured skill I have, and I am afraid of it. However, I am aware that the only way forward into my ideal future is to write, and to write like mad. So I am. I am not as disciplined as I would like yet, but am hanging tight. One of the things is to finish your assignments. And to post them before I think they are perfect, because they never, ever will be. I am going to start now. The very next post is an assignment sent to me by my friend, Steffi.
Love you madly,
