Yesterday, I saw the documentary “One Night Stand” about the 24-hour journey of four musicals from the page to the stage. As a writer, I found it galvanizing (and as a theatre major, thrilling). This film also made me think of my friends participating in NaNoWriMo and the unbelievable crunch to get 50,000 words down in 30 days. One of the writers featured in the film described producing a musical in one day as the “ultimate cure for writer’s block.” What could you do if you gave yourself 24 hours and a seemingly impossible goal?
