Second day of Musical Theatre workshops at TRSE. Sevan proves himself once again to be a man of eerie powers – you just have to drop him a line saying ‘musicals are hard’ and he appears, like a bearded genie, to offer support and kind words.

First stab at writing ‘lyrics’ today. Quotation marks very much intentional. I’m enjoying deconstructing my work and looking for hooks and phrases in the story that might work in songs, but this is a steep learning curve for me…

On my to do list tomorrow – write some lyrics for an imagined encounter with Indira Gandhi. So no pressure there.
