Shakespeare has the answer.
Well, sort of.
I realized what I was fretting about yesterday was the enormity of doing this story justice (this is my eternal fret, actually). And a line leapt to mind - my favorite moment from, not Shakespeare, but the riotous Complete Works of Wm. Shakespeare (Abridged), written and for quite a long time performed by my friends (since college, eek!) Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield (who is one of my critique partners, currently writing a brilliant novel about sex, drugs, and Shakespeare.)
My favorite moment in a show full of laugh-till-you're-sick moments comes just before the intermission, when Adam flat out refuses to go any further, because the one play left that the boys haven't yet butchered is HAMLET. And Adam just doesn't think he can do it justice.
Jess lifts a sobbing Adam from the floor, assuring him - "We don't have to do it justice. We just have to do it."
And that's the point I have to remember. Sometimes you don't have to do it justice (although you always hope justice eventually will be done). Sometimes you just have to do it.
