There’s something joyous about completing the first draft of a major piece of work; in this case my radio play Judicial Algorithms which I wrote for the OU. The first draft was written through straight without giving in to my usual temptation to edit as I go. So right now it’s a bit like Schroedinger’s Script; it could be awesome or it could be atrocious. But right now I’m just happy that exists at all.
Tomorrow comes the next phase: editing the first draft and all the self-doubt that comes with it, while I try to make something decent out of it and iron out the inevitable inconsistencies. Time will tell whether I’ll be tweaking something that’s not too bad or whether I’m polishing a turd.
