Last night I slept terrible but that is okay! Sometimes insomnia produces useful things. Last night produced several very ambitious concepts for photoshoots, a random text message to my sister, the expansion on an essay plan on my directorial concept for Porgy and Bess and, most exciting of all, a title for the current play I am writing.
I am a quarter of a way through my latest play which has previously been called 'Four Nights' because it takes place over four nights. (Yes, naming things is not my forte.) It is about sexual abuse within a family and who is to blame. Thanks to my insomnia, it is now called 'The Sleeping Dog Lies' which makes me happy on so many levels. a) Because we all know it is best to let a sleeping dog lie b) because one of the characters is called Wolf and constant references are made to him either being a predator or a guard dog according to whose side you take c) because the sleeping dog might lie or tell multiple lies. Gosh I am pleased with myself! That honestly took me an hour to come up with!
Just thought I'd share. A few of you here here have read the first draft of act one. Thoughts? And how awesome is my word play!?
A happy Fleur.
Oh and in other news, yep, still in plenty of pain and doped up on hardcore pain killers but I guess that isn't going to change any time soon, is it?
