The more they kept writing the more it was becoming obvious that they are not aiming at him. They were aiming at themselves, the pandemic, all their own faults, the people who were mean to them, the government. And it’s obvious that these reasons behind being angry apply to us all.
I thought: why would I want to change my writing into something daunting? It was the only antidote to my anxiety, and it held my hand supportively through my depression, so why would I shift the scene to make it the antagonist of the story? It was a new reality I had found myself in where anxiety was king, and my comfort was in peril. My friend swung herself around where she was seated in front of me, “let’s go,” stars painted her eyes bright as the lights overhead. How could I say no?
I am now at University in my Second Year- studying theatre and drama and I don’t regret it one bit. I enjoy my course and learn more and more every day about the industry and add more experiences to my career. Whether it be forming relationships in my drama society or finding the confidence to pursue outer projects such as playwriting and doing performances with outside theatre companies. I believe I am already paving my way and so will you.
