A client told me that after a first performance, he felt like he just got in a fight. I knew exactly what he meant. When I’m driving away from a juicy argument and I can’t stop thinking about what I could have said. It’s a million chess games running thru my head. If I said this, they woulda said that…
When I did street shows, I would walk back to my hotel or apartment on long walks just spinning – doing imaginary show after imaginary show.
This sensation can be haunting. It can cause lots of insomnia. It can make a person crazy, but it is magic for making for exponentially more “stage time.”
Cultivate it with quiet time after a moment of creation.
