If I Laugh

pexels-photo-990829.jpegIF I LAUGH is the working title of my novel.

The premise: A young single mom and failed hippie returns from a midwifery-farm collective in the 1970’s to her suburban family home and forms the first all-ladies comedy club in her parents’ garage.

Designing Principle: Force a suburb-hating idealistic young earth mama in the 1970’s to confront the lack of equality inside her cherished community on a farm collective.

I’m finished with the outline and starting the first chapter and one of the other chapters.

I’m enjoying the process of writing more than I usually do, because I’m letting my creative urge lead the way. I love writing three different stories in three different forms (screenplay, novel, graphic story) that spring from the same story world and character web.

How is your creative flow going?

Here’s what I’m working on:

It’s been a long day and I’m just now about to get some writing done. Here’s what I’m working on:

Screenplay: CARY RIVERS

Premise: Two junior high girls in the seventies think the messiah for the New Age of Aquarius is a stand-up comic.

Designing Principle: Force a cultural critic (1970’s new rock star style comedian) to live and work inside the institutions he criticizes.

What are you working on?
