I’ve been working on a feature film version of my short play I Have it – a romantic comedy about two young people with HIV – for about a year now? And over the past few months, I’ve been revising and revising, draft after draft. I have bi-weekly phone meetings with the director and producer, they give notes – minutia to large suggestions – I digest and  fix. Definitely a different process than developing a play, as it doesn’t involve actors just yet. I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard on a script, but it’s been supremely rewarding, letting myself totally get rid of and change things. It’s a nice reminder that anything good thing requires work. And after work: more work. And after work and work and work: hopefully, greatness.
