Groundlings was a blast!

Back in 2009, I auditioned to take classes at Groundlings in LA. I passed. And in 2010, I began Basic Level I (which I think is now called Improv Workshop A).

I *loved* these classes. I learned so much as an actor, but I learned a bunch as a writer.

  • how to craft a scene
  • how to hone in on what the character wants or needs
  • great practice at saying “yes, and” not only to my scene partners but also to my own self while writing
  • how to be fearless
  • how to change power in a scene
  • tricks for breaking through writers block

So much good stuff.

I would have taken more if I’d had the time and the money.
