The Terrible Misfortune

Slow progress, considering the time I put in on it, but the play begins with a long, hopefully funny, monologue from a hapless narrator. When writing plays, I always tend to work slower when writing monologue. And no matter what I write, when I get into dialogue, it goes quickly – perhaps the fastest writing I do outside of the tail-end of a novel, such as the last fifty pages. So most of the time tonight was spent on the first page-and-a-half, while the remainder, the introduction of hero Young Jack and his Mum, went quickly.
No writing tomorrow due to Men’s Bible Study. Perhaps Tuesday, after I get home from work late.
