At what point did you know that you were a playwright? When was the first time you said, “I’m a playwright” or “I write plays” and it sounded right. Was there some other career you were headed toward; where did you detour? Or, were you always on track?
Did you study playwriting or learn by trial and error? When did you find out that you were good at writing plays? Was it by osmosis or did you get an “A” on a writing assignment or some serious clapping at the end of one of your plays? What was the play?
When did you determine your voice as a writer? Did it catch you by surprise? What were you writing?
When did you know that life without writing was not an option…?
