Why here? Why now?

In Irish Mist, Revision, Sanford Meisner on November 18, 2014 at 9:01 am

Story-wise over here, the only relevant question this morning: how best to organize the space i.e. time, location, and character holding center stage.

Telling the story in chronological order doesn’t work although I’ll try it again if I must. Except I don’t know of a single human being whose recollections show up in neat agenda time. History books do that. People don’t. A word, a silence, an intonation can set off an avalanche of memories or one piercing realization.

The piercing realization part standing in the wings right now, as far as one of the characters is concerned.

Keep on, keep on, keep on until the head nods – not in slumbering stupor, but in agreement. Yes, this is what the story set out to say, and this is why these three characters are telling it.
