Improv Wisdom

I am reading Improv Wisdom by Patricia Ryan Madson, an improvisor and professor who is very thoughtful about how the elements of improv might work off the stage. Each chapter is a maxim, and I’ve listed them below. They provide a handy little overview of her focus:

Say yes
Don’t prepare
Just show up
Start anywhere
Be average
Pay attention
Face the facts
Stay on course
Wake up to the gifts
Make mistakes, please
Act now
Take care of each other
Enjoy the ride

It reminds me of the wisdom prints by artist Suzanne L. Vinson.
