The Problem with People was not a fun project. When Emily Rhoades and I first started it, we didn't have much of an idea what direction we were going to take it. We wrote a short story first so that we'd have a better idea of what would be happening in the play, but in the short story, there wasn't really a point. It was just a funny situation in which two everyday people met and the first seeds of friendship (possibly romance) were planted. So when we both realized that we needed to have an actual statement, several alterations had to be made. What did I learn about myself as a writer? I definitely should not be a playwright. In the finalized version of the play, the main characters Kellin and Brynn have a discussion about the morality of people. We tried to go deep, but it was a little shaky since it was a last minute addition. I'd probably change most of the project if given the chance, since we approached it completely wrong the first time. I don't think it's the worse thing ever, but I'm not really proud of or pleased with it.
