Readercon writers act out

I promise this is the last post I’m going to make about Readercon. The Reading Aloud workshop last year left me interested in learning more about acting. This year, there was almost an Actorcon track,  with a repeat of Reading Aloud and two hour workshops about acting and improv.

I wanted to do more in “Acting and Writing” on Friday.   I did like the level of detail asked for in the visualization exercise. At the other extreme, “Writing and Improv” on Saturday was relentless. It was interesting sometimes watching people change each other’s ideas, but it could also be baffling to see what ruts we chose to get ourselves into.

I think the biggest lesson I got from both is that it’s not such a terrible thing to make a fool of yourself. Like this blog.

  1. Thanks for commenting on the Acting Skills & Writing workshop! You’re right–future iterations of that workshop will *definitely* have more participant activity and less of me talking. It was the first time I’d done the workshop and I’m always nervous that people will be shy about taking part. Obviously, that isn’t a problem at conventions! I appreciate your feedback. :-)
