Fucking hell. What a week. It’s been 6 days since the preview and I’m only now getting back to normal. Oh man, one thing I did not account for was how much it was going to take out of me. I was exhausted! All this adrenaline, nerves and energy beforehand, then zooompch. It was like I deflated.
But in a good way. I can’t believe it actually happened, and we managed to pull it off. We had a wee Q&A/discussion with the audience after, and that gave us a chance to get wuality feedback, talk through some things, speak about our ideas etc etc. I was shitting it. Like, proper shitting it. I mean, what if they hated it? I’m gonna be all buzzing from the show then get hit with “Excuse me Judy, I was just wondering….why are you a shit writer? Have you ever tried being….not shit?”. I would’ve cried.
Luckily that didn’t happen, and it’s been a largely positive response. Obviously, there’s things we need to work on, but we’ve got plenty of time….plenty of time…plenty of..
Oh shit. It’s 15 days.
