31 Days, 31 Plays

I have challenged myself for the month of October.

The challenge? Write a play each day… a one-page play, that is.

Sometimes you gotta take baby steps to get back into the creative habit–this is mine.

Each day I will write one page of scripted material (radio and film scripts do count). This could be self-contained, part of another project, the beginning of a future project, an internal musing staged as a play–practically¬†anything.

The idea is less like Suzan Lori-Parks’ 365 Plays and more like the concept of the one-page picture frame from Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird. If writing a whole novel, a chapter, or even a page seems too overwhelming, then just write one sentence. One really good sentence that you can launch off of into the rest of the story.

Each week I will post my favorite (or least embarrassing) one-page play here. You can also follow my updates on Twitter (@maggiesulc) and Instagram (@maggiesulc).
