And so, um, I’m like really stressed out and I’m working in my, I’m working in the University and I’m making shows and I discover this like fantastic time killing, ha, um… haha, acitvity, ahh on the internet. Like a nice stress relief etc, and I got really… into it. and um as I was in… doing that… like… I was doing it in my studio you know. At a certain point I realised it was essentially writing. Like what I was doing was writing. Because I was like… [mimes typing]... you know kind of performing, I don’t… you know just being myself, but, on a keyboard and in front of a camera. um not always with the camera but… yeah that I was sort of like pulling stories out of these people and telling my story… and then the more people that kind of I would get involved with the more complicated all the stories became and… and at a certain point it just seemed like wow I’m actually writing.
