For this, WOW=Work of Writing (whatever you choose) Answer as many or as few as you want. I choose "Yet Another Shakespeare Rewrite" or "The Winter's Tale for a Modern Day Audience"
1: What inspired you to write the WOW this way?
It was already a play format when given the assignment and I wanted to make it the whole play and keep it as a play.
2: What scene did you first put down?
Act III because that was the scene I first wrote for the sock puppet version, but they all went through revisions.
3: What's your favorite line of dialogue?
"He doesn't know the difference between a Big Mac and a Maserati" is one of my favorites. That just came to me one day and I knew I had to include it in the play.
5: What part was hardest to write?
Perdita's speech about the natural and genetically engineered flowers.
6: What makes this WOW special or different from all your other WOWs?
It was based on Shakepseare's play and it was performed for two nights on a stage as well as me still figuring out exactly what I am going to do with it.
7: Where did the title come from?
Being there are so many shakespeare rewrites, I thought it was funny to call it "Yet Another shakespeare Rewrite" because "The Winter's Tale" doesn't have rewrites. Yet, almost all of the other plays have some type of rewrite as a play, a novel, or a movie.
8: Did any real people or events inspire any part of it?
9: Were there any alternate versions of this WOW?
I started the rewrite by keeping all of Shakespeare's characters' name and the locations the same. I made sure to make things more modern little by little.
10: What do you like best about this WOW?
I can't really choose a best thing.
12: What do you like least about this WOW?
I can't really choose a thing I like the least, either.
13: What music did you listen to, if any, to get in the mood for writing this story? Or if you didn't listen to anything, what do you think readers should listen to to accompany us while reading?
I listened to a lot of the music I used for scene changes and the Josh Woodward music that I used for preshow and intermission music, but that was while working on things for the play and while writing it.
14: Is there anything you wanted readers/aidoemce to learn from reading/seeing this WOW?
Whatever they can learn from it.
15: What did you learn from writing this WOW?
Sometimes inspiration can come from the strangest places. Other times, a lot of help is needed in order to find inspiration.
