You should write about The Crucible. EVERYONE should write about it.

Reblogged from MeandRichard

I couldn’t agree more — even if you don’t publish it for the world.

You should write about The Crucible. EVERYONE should write about it.

The reason that I have been trying to link every longer fan reaction to the play that I have found on a blog or site — and I look for new ones every day — is that I’m trying to create a broad record of the reactions to the play by non-professionals. No one should take my decision to write about the play myself as a signal that I think others should not write about it. I will continue to search for other reactions and link them here in order to do what I can to assure that more people see them. Everyone will have a different one — because really, everyone is seeing a slightly different play — and we should rejoice in that, in finding as many as possible.

If you do want to publish something and you don’t have a platform, I hope you know that there are plenty of blogs (including this one) that would be happy to do it for you.

A little inspiration:

If you want to start a blog and need help, I’ll help you, and no, it does not need to be a Richard Armitage blog unless that’s what you want.


  1. Another great reason to write about it is that you’ll have a record of your thoughts and impressions. Believe it or not, they do fade over time and it would be a shame to lose them. Reading your account can bring it all to life again.

  2. @Linnetmoss I agree. Just yesterday I had occasion to re-read my posts on seeing Richard Armitage perform and meeting him at the Pinter/Proust reading – and it did, indeed bring the experience back.

  3. I agree and think that is the first and foremost reason to write about it. Right now as we speak, I have as many posts in draft as I do published, and frankly, I think my draft posts are probably much better than my published ones. But most of it will never be published; it just helps me remember and relive something.
