One encouraging thing I can say about my Quarantine Play is that that I will likely not need to do heavy rewrites. There won’t be any heavy lifting required.
Compare that to my Egypt Play, which I am currently revising for a second draft. Even though the basic structure will be the same, every intention of my characters is different. The motivations will be stronger, but nearly every line will be rewritten. I am working on the opening monologue now, and it’s just like starting over. And when I have to do that, it’s hard to spot the improvement.
More to come!
