I am a playwright. I write plays. Create theater.
So what happens when I cancel a show that I wrote? And read long guilt trip texts from my now-super-pissed director? And write apology emails to the entire cast, and the people running the theater? Am I still a playwright then?
What am I when I completely lose my inspiration and don’t want to do this anymore? When thinking about it makes me heavy with dread?
If I’m not a playwright, do I become No Longer Interesting? Do I find something new to do? Some way to be creative that actually feels fun?
I don’t know. But when a lot of people are angry, you tend to just mostly feel like a goblin who has ruined everyone’s time.
