Three Tips from Megan

Adam Szymkowicz recently interviewed fellow playwright Megan Mostyn-Brown and posted it on Facebook. I thought her response to one of his questions was particularly spot-on.

Adam: What advice do you have for new playwrights?

Megan: Hmmmm…I guess my top three would be:
1. Don’t be afraid to show your work.
2. Cultivate a group of 2-3 people who understand you as a writer and who you can trust to give you unbiased feedback about your work.
3. Be okay with the fact that sometimes you have to fall out of love with a play and put it in a drawer for a year before you can fix it.

I am currently struggling with #3.
