Prologue: The 2018 Project / by Jeffrey Lo

The 2018 Project.jpg

At the tail end of 2017, I heard an interview with writers Ta-Nehisi Coates and Bill Simmons where they likened the act of writing for a writer to training for a boxer. The more disciplined you are with it, the sharper you stay, the better you become. This inspired me to commit to writing a play a day in 2018. Much like the amazing Suzan-Lori Parks, I want to promise myself the time each day to stay present, stay focused and stay dedicated to my craft. Who knows if anything will come of these pieces after the fact, but I will be posting these plays each day of 2018 hoping to become a better artist and perhaps learning a bit about myself along the way. Here goes nothing.
