Seven Days of Aspirations for Busy Script Readers (plus an eighth with love from a freelance dramaturg)
Aspiration #1: We hire you because you're a good writer.
Aspiration #2: Be an artistic contrarian in an age of corporate sameness.
Aspiration #3: Be mindful that Audiences are made up of swimmers, skimmers, and divers (and Dramaturgs, who are deep divers, need to communicate and collaborate with swimmers and skimmers).
Aspiration #4: Don't overlook Ugly Ducklings and Nurture Hothouse Flowers.
Aspiration #5: Lists! Lists! Lists! Can't Stop, Won't Stop Reading!
Aspiration #6: Find Them. Develop Them. Support Them.
Aspiration #7: Take Care of Each Other. Take Care of our Earth. Take Care of our Stories.
Aspiration #8: "Best practices: be prepared to let shit go."
