I survived Improv 2!  
I had my first workshop for Faire this evening - Improv 2 (character based improv). Now, improv makes me nervous and nauseous at the best of times. When it's my husband teaching the class, it's that much more intimidating. Why? Because 1. he's really, really good at it and 2. he's been known to be very demanding. For all my worrying, it went pretty well. I found a few new things to think about for my character this summer, one of which is that I want her to be more feminine. Any suggestions would be welcome! (I am the perpetual tomboy)

I think I may have finally accepted that I am not funny. So many folk I work with are so quick, clever and witty. Not so I. Acknowledging that not all improv has to be humorous is rather liberating. Even so, I do watch those who are brilliantly funny and sigh with ill-concealed envy. The best thing I gained from tonight's experience: further story ideas for Marian and Robin.

So that's tonight out of the way. Tomorrow is singing (Wenches) and dance (the Galliard again... aaaaaaaah!). Thursday is my double rapier fight, and Friday and Saturday will see me in joust rehearsals once more.

Ah, well. I can sleep in October. Or January.
I feel: draineddrained

I am tempted to say "of course you survived Improv 2". But perhaps, just this once, I shall not.

I like this line best: "The best thing I gained from tonight's experience: further story ideas for Marian and Robin."

One thing that always makes *me* feel feminine is wearing gorgeous dresses or skirts... but I'm not sure that that's very much help. I shall muse on this further, if I remember. *hugs*
