I've been doing some acting recently.
Not crazy comedy sketch acting like in 'This Time Last Tuesday' but a small monologue in a corporate. I was directing it but we needed a small extra part so I stepped in. We had a bit of fun with it. The 'real' actors all sat in a line like a reality TV show panel and all rushed to give me direction. Revenge!
But it was also a great experience for me. I learned a lot about what it takes to stand up and read lines out. In this case lines that I hadn't written. Its odd. You just want to rewrite it yourself. I was wondering if other writers have ever done this. I recommend it everyone.
