This project is called the 20% project. Why is it called this? Because we had 20% of our second semester to create a project of our chose that helped people in our community, as well as something we were each passionate about. For my 20% project I decided that I was going to write a musical, though I found very quickly that writing a musical is a lot harder than I thought it was. I have written books, but never have I written a musical. The process was hard for me, so I was able to get a mentor: Jason Lythgoe. I also collected three books from the Durango Public Library. Though it was still hard, and I thought about switching my plan to only having to write one scene from the musical and then come up with the choreography and record it all. Though when advocating, I was told that I shouldn't limit myself, and not give up when things get hard. So, I took this and realized I was being very negative about this project and decided to come in with a more positive attitude. And was able to write a first draft of my musical script.
