One month ago, I started a new endeavor which is slowly changing my life for the better.
August was a month of changes. First there was the clothing diet which slowly downsized and simplified my wardrobe (and also taught me how to change my attitude towards clothing).
Then came the rehearsals (and subsequent performances) of "The Last 5 Years." This is teaching me to get out of my head when singing and worry less about how "pretty" it sounds and more about WHY the song exists in the first place.
Finally, I started this blog – which is surprisingly having the greatest effect of all. Based solely on the momentum created by this blog, I have: started the Actors and Auditioners Newsletter, started submitting query letters to magazines, submitted a book query to a publisher and have begun writing daily again. That last one is the biggie. I used to write daily. For years. I have fallen out of the habit in recent years but since I have developed an audience with this – I have someone to be accountable to. This motivates me so I am getting 'er done.
And I thank you for it.
Writing for you (and for me) is a habit I have no plans of breaking.
