I knew it would be Wrist to Forehead Sunday; I just didn’t know how long I would put off making the post. This weekend was going to be SO productive, writing-wise! I guess next weekend I will plan on getting nothing done and see if the opposite thing happens with that.
I couldn’t even have one of my favorite Severed Head Sundays, because Steven wanted to watch Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in respect for recently deceased playwright Edward Albee. I could have no possible objection. I love Edward Albee. I had a great directing experience once directing The American Dream, which of course he wrote. My greatest dream role has always been Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? I still think I could play the hell out of that part. Perhaps I flatter myself, but who would disillusion me? At least, I suppose somebody might try, but I will not believe them.
It is really a very good movie. Some people have problems with places where it departs from the play script, but you’ll have that with a screen adaptation. I have never seen the play on stage, although I have read it numerous times. I think it is time for me to read it again. It would be a good idea for me to read more plays, since I am currently working on writing a couple. If I keep reading plays, I can internalize the form, as they say.
In the meantime, I need to publish at least 200 words to feel I am still writing a blog. When I realized I had not done so yet, I said, “Crap! I haven’t make my blog post!” Steven said, “Don’t make one today. Everyone will be saying, ‘Where’s Cindy?’ ” But I could not let today be the day I did such a thing. So I pulled out the laptop and started typing. And look, I am over 300 words. I call that respectable. Happy Sunday, everyone.
