I need to write a new scene for Kaddish, as I'd promised the director, and now for some reason, I'm scared. Scared I can't do it. Why would I think I can't do it? Go back into a play I stopped revising three years ago and just pick up the thread, just write a new scene to give the father a bigger voice and presence? What could be simpler?

I think I'll go swim.

Well, it's your play so of course it's going to be simple. But you are not the same person who wrote it, because so much time has passed and you have grown. So it's not going to be simple at all. Somehow you have to navigate that middle ground. Teagrapple
