We met again tonight, our second workshop, and we were without Shanna, due to a car breakdown on the way to Concordia University, and Alice Clark, due to a workplace incident. The prompt phrase was “It’s more than rain that falls on our parade tonight.” Joe followed up his first piece with a second one featuring a character he had created in the first, and discovered something poignant and poetic by coming at the character and some of his defining moments from another POV. Geneva’s piece was a standout, a full narrative that managed to touch upon the topic on a few thematic levels, while sticking to it’s central characters. Scott’s piece flexed his satirical muscles, and managed to be effectively comedic and biting. Scott’s piece was valuable too, in being the first to really focus in on people’s internal reactions to the homeless and interacting with them.
