What I want:
-Storyline: Tragic, Love, Drama, a little comedy
-Comedic relief character
-Court Room scene
-Soulful act break (Song that ends the first act)
- I Don’t want a reprise finale? (Many musicals end with a previous song being sung again to bring the show to an emotional end)
-narrator? (bert “mary poppins” leading player “pippin”)
Overall Message: Be careful who you trust/Watch your back (still questioning)
None of these ideas are set in stone yet. I just would love to have these ideas worked into the story somehow. I sort of have a plot in mind but it's really abstract at the moment. I wouldn't even call it a plot. It is kind of like mutiple ideas that seem like they go together, but when you look at it as a whole, they don't. I've been having a hard time coming up with plot ideas. I started asking my classmates, who are also writing stories, on how they came up with their ideas. They told me that they relied on material that they wrote in the past, and still have, to give them ideas. That made me remember that I have a song book with several songs written by me, and posts in my notes app about general ideas for songs and musicals. This is great! I have a lot of resources that I can look to now so that makes me happy. So this week I'm going to invest more time into this project because I feel like it could be something wonderful if I treat it as such instead of treating it like a hobby.
Goal: Finish the song that I started, create the main character.
