I’ve learned from improv that every bit of infomation is a gift.
And that the most valuable kind of inforamtion is basic.
Who what when where
because who, what when and where I am doesn’t matter unless I know how it matters to you
I am a wife and mother in 2019 in Claremont California
I am a wife and a mother during the rainiest winter of my daughter’s life in Claremont California.
I am a wife and mother in 2019 in the town with the last traditional-style liberal arts college.
I am a wife and mother at the beginning of the twenty first century in America
…I am stretching out each part of the gift and I haven’t even gotten to the part about being a wife and mother
When I am writing, I guess the facts and the relationship are between the words and what they mean to the reader, how the reader starts making relationships between the facts
In improv, the relationship can be between two people.
But the writer is alone, or at least alone until someone comes along to keep the writing company by reading it.
So i guess I’d better be clear in my mind, what relationships i want to present to the reader
once the relationships are established, the rest can ride.
