The Brief

Every writer has started working on something and then gave up halfway through. We all have somewhere an incomplete idea or play.
Your challenge for today, should you choose to accept it, is to find one of those ideas and complete them!

If you manage to do that – you will become a god!
It will be like raising the dead!

 

The Excerpt

LOVER

(rolling over and sitting up, but keeping the sheets wrapped around her)

Do I smell coffee?

BELOVED

You do… Slide over…

LOVER

Ohhh… I do love you.

BELOVED

You say that to all the men who bring you coffee in bed.

LOVER

No… only to the ones who remember I like cream.

BELOVED

Ah, well, then I’m in luck.

  1. This is simply wondrous. The way you explore and express the experience of music (and it IS experienced, not merely ‘heard’) is perfect. Just…perfect. I strongly believe this is your best play (so far) this year.
