Macon actor and playwright Winsphere Jones has had success performing for theaters in Atlanta, but has decided that being in Macon for the moment was more beneficial in getting his name into history.
“The struggle of a writer is that you feel that no one is listening to you,” he said. “No one’s ever going to hear your words. Nobody’s going to know who you are or what you’re writing about. And the struggle is to keep going because any time you can stop you just feel like you don’t want to do it anymore because you don’t feel like nobody is ever going to know what you’re doing or what you are about. And I think that’s the biggest struggle for me and for other writers and playwrights out there who want to be successful is that.”
He is currently working on a play for Southwest High School that he has titled “Heart of Montenegro.”
“Well the high school play is going to be basically about a tribe in Africa,” he said. “This hasn’t been touched by mankind and they are in dispute about their cultures being mixed with one another and that play is basically done for the students to try and get them more involved with theatre and drama.”
Jones main focus is to continue writing plays and investing into his career. He wants people to know who he is and he said he wants his work to mean something. Jones said he does that by writing pieces he thinks people can connect to and understand in a different light.
