It was a great experience, it is always thrilling to see actors practice their craft, taking your words and ideas and breathing them to life, seeing the way they choose to bend your phrasing, punch up your humor, and internalize your conflicts. As usual, it made me feel insecure and neurotic, "Will anyone understand what I'm talking about? Are my references too strange? Will they think it's funny too?" Luckily, it went over well, the actors told me they appreciated the script, saying I should write for them again. It was a good experience.
Though, there was a moment that almost derailed me. Going through social media with my soon-to-be wife, Steph, after the 7:00 showings, we saw a meme posted on Instagram by someone we knew was at the show that was mocking people's artistic craft.
