This morning, I contacted my facilitator because I didn’t know where to begin with writing my play. She had told me I should start out by doing a brainstorming method that I am comfortable with. In addition, I knew I wanted to do a mind-map. I have used this method several times in the past and it is very useful. So, I went to the store later that day and purchased a poster board and colored sharpies. When I got home, I began to jot down all the ideas and create a plot
I felt a little intimidated throughout the process of writing things on the poster board at one point; so, I called my facilitator. Her advice to me was to write down everything even if it didn’t make sense! She explained to me that this will prevent me from forgetting any potential ideas. This helped a lot, and after a couple hours I found out the plot and genre of the play I wanted to write.
Tafaria is creating a mind-map to help bring her play ideas to life! She had a lot of fun creating it as well.

After I concluded what I wanted my play to be about I started writing the first couple scenes. This was my first time writing in play format on word, so it was something I had to get used to. I began with typing the scenes from left to right, then putting character names in boldface., and putting stage directions in parentheses. Also, while typing I kept in mind how I want the official set to look like
Getting the first scene down was difficult, because my facilitator told me the opening scenes in plays should always be strong and set a mood for the rest of the show. My opening scene is very emotional and tells about how the leading lady of the play Mavis Williams is having her 3rd miscarriage in the past 2 years. I told my facilitator about my story plan and she was very excited for the final product
Tafaria is typing her play on her laptop creating her rough draft! It’s coming out really well.

I printed out my first half of my rough draft. I then gave copies to some of my friends who are interested in theatre and then I gave a copy to my facilitator. I told them to mark on the copy if necessary and that any criticism would be appreciated. After my facilitator finished reading her copy I invited her over so she could give me her notes and feedback. She told me that my plot was unique, but I have a long way to go. I also talked to my friends who read a sample of my play and asked for their feedback and they told me they loved how spooky it seemed.
I completed writing half of my play! So, I wanted to get in contact with my facilitator and peers so they can peer edit my play. I wanted to get as many opinions from others so I can get feedback from an audience’s perspective. They will give their opinion as to if they like or dislike the play so far, find spelling errors, and tell me if the play is easy to follow along to.
