Unfortunately, this has, for some while now, prevented me from getting this blog started in the first place. Why? Because I get writer's block.
Fortunately, I've now been to enough improvisation classes to know that the more I think about this and the more attention I pay to my inner monologue, the less I get onto paper.
Unfortunately, this is not an improvisation class.
Fortunately, the skill, practices and games we play on stage are transferable to every-day life.
So I'll use two lessons I've learned from improv:
- Sometimes saying anything is better than saying nothing at all.
- Often what seems mundane and normal to us is very interesting to the audience because it can sympathise, empathise, or be the start of a conversation.
Therefore, I won't aim for being funny or witty. My aim is to share what I learn on my journey of self-employment and self-discovery. This blog will show you my thought processes and will be full of games and exercises that can enrich life.
I hope you find some useful tidbits and do feel free to share and comment and have a conversation with me.
