New Board Member Clare Solly has adapted some of our prior questions for our writers with some of the Proust questions for you to get to know our playwrights better! This week's spotlight is on Raechel Segal who's play Dykes on Wheels will be part of our final Spring 2019 workshop at The Tank May 6th.
BechOust/ ProuDel Questions:
What comes easily and what challenges do you face in the writing process?
Authenticity, characterization, and dialogue all come easily. I just spit it out!
More challenging is maintaining the truth when editing dialogue so characters are communicating their wants instead of just talking. I also find plot challenging since I am mostly a character and dialogue writer.
What are your two most favorite writing tools?
Background music, laptop, cappuccino
As a writer, what is your process? (Are you more of a worker bee or do you feel the muse? Do you usually outline or free flow?)
What is your motto or main goal as a writer/artist?
Unleash the beast!
What talent or super power would you most like to have?
Small motor skills
Favorite words of advice or quote you drift back to?
You do you, and the rest will follow.
Feminist writing--what do you look or aim for in this genre?
Get the cis white men off the stage! (Just kidding!)
What would your mother tell her friends about your writing career?
Mom: It all started in third grade when Raechel won the Reading Rainbow Contest.
Raechel: And that explains it all!
What can we look forward to hearing next from/about you?
I’m drafting a play about liberal elitism.
