Embarrassment is good. And what's beyond embarrassment is even better. The embarrassment could create greater access to improvisation. Why are writers often embarrassed? Maybe it started in grade school or junior high school. The fear of being predicted-- fear of being made solid by someone else. Nothing could be worse than this. And so the embarrassed person compensates. Writer might remove a poem from a collection because it reminds him of a thought he had in his unconscious mind. Writer forgot the first rule of disinterest-- nobody cares about anyone else's unconscious mind. Not caring about embarrassing differences, I believe is what makes acting interesting. Underneath it all, acting is boring and ordinary. Why should writing not possess the same qualities?-- and it does. So why does the embarrassment still linger? Maybe it has an important temporary function.
