I am taking an improv workshop this weekend. I went into it completely nervous. I am not that confident in my ability to be funny and spontaneous. I often feel like I don’t know what to say. I can talk about facts but creating stories and bullshitting is difficult for me. I went to the workshop to learn exactly about this kind of stuff.
First of all, the workshop is amazing. It is so fun. Everything seems really easy and the people are super supportive. I am creating scenes that I never thought I would be able to do. The teachers are so great. They created such a positive environment.
To be honest, I am not sure how well it is helping with my goals, though. There are guys who are acting a lot and go to a lot of extremes. They get good reactions but I am doing alright as well. I am staying back and observing the scene before I give my input and when I do it is well received. I thought that there might be a big transformation that makes me a lot more talkative but it seems that all along I was fine just the way I was.
