Still Harping on Monologues

It's hard to talk about writing when you haven't done any. At all. Virtually none. I mean I may have browsed through a lot of other people's writing in the past month or two, but I have only written one thing. And that was for a deadline. My own deadline. For a season that my company is putting on. But you see, I pay attention to my own deadlines too.

Regarding the various personal projects that I'm working on - I will be developing Rhonda a bit further. Looks like there might be an interesting opportunity to work on it more before the performance next year.

Fury: I met with an amazing woman who told me first hand what it's like when your child takes their life. It was powerful and sad and energising and helped me to see why I am interested in this project idea.

I had a new idea called The White Box. I am simmering it, until it is delicious and thickened. I write a food blog too in case you didn't know..

HEY! That's right I have been writing, it's just that I've been writing about food. And of course 1000 emails to various people about all sorts of shit. And Facebook posts. And lists. I have been writing heaps and heaps of things.

But not Twitter. Honestly people I am not a 140 chars girl. Sometimes it's best to face these things.

I wrote a monologue too. It will be going on for the Madwomen Monologues - which will celebrated in all their PR glory very shortly on a glossy website with pictures and things that move. I am assured.

My monologue looks at the disturbing rise of street kids through the eyes of a fish living in the Yarra. No it doesn't. But that's quite good.

It is a piece of fluffery which takes a poke at romance novels, and I will, ahem, perform, it. Yes.. Moi. More soon.


  1. I'm sure the fluffery poke at romance novels will be fabulous but I am more excited about the fish's take on street kids. I think we could all stand to learn a lesson or two from a wise old fish. Before we eat him.

  2. I can already tell from just this one blog post that you are a much better writer than I am. Years ago I had 2 authors tell me they thought I should write opinion pieces for the newspapers. They encouraged me so much that I tried writing articles and submitting them. Of course, every single one was rejected. And so I began to blog, foolishly thinking it would somehow improve my writing. It hasn't, but it has given me an audience, if nothing else. I admire your talent and skill. I wish I had as much.
