October, 2008 and now has three step-grandchildren, Isaac, Bekah and
Rachel, whom he enjoys immensely.
Watching live drama is a shared experience: Shared with
the others in the audience and with the performers. It has an immediacy
and intensity that TV or movies can't replicate. It's all real-time,
with no replay option. That makes it special in today's slick impersonal
Writing a dramatic piece is not shared, of course. But
the expectation of sharing is built in. The writer wants to share an
idea, a feeling, or an experience in a way that will touch actors and
audiences at multiple levels and multiple ways. And, if done well,
everyone grows a little.
