Q&A with MWT member MAZZ RYAN
A. I was 17 years old when the idea to be a writer first hit me. I was in awe of the way people could make words come to life in the novels I was reading. I didn’t act upon that desire until I was 39, and going through a pretty rough time. I threw in the towel, left my career and went to Uni for the first time to take up a Performing Arts Degree in Launceston, Tasmania. I loved theatre and had always wanted to ac,t but I also had the firm idea that I wanted to write plays. The desire to write was there first, but the actuality of acting came before I put words to paper.
A. I am constantly coming up with ideas for scripts that have situations and human behaviours to explore. I have many beginnings with endings, but it’s often the middle which holds me up and drags out the process. So, rather than a script I’m burning to write, it’s more like the many scripts I’m burning to finish.
