Meanwhile, in real life

Part of the reason I've been scarce around here lately is simply a lack of inclination to write anything of substance. I can toss out random flippancy on Twitter or Facebook with no problem, but here and my pro blog have been rather neglected.

For a more strictly-defined value of "recently," I (a) spent most of this past weekend transcribing terribly dull, but thankfully clearly-articulated, convention videos, which was good in the paycheck sense, and (b) have now had a positive result from every single one of the auditions I have done in calendar year 2012, plus picked up... three? projects without auditioning. Mostly set gigs, with the exception of one callback for the P&P/S&S summer rep run at Janus Theatre here in Elgin. Mostly supporting, single-scene stuff, but leads in two shorts (which will both also be one- or two-day shoots).

My head is kind of spinning with it all. Now if I could just get the knack of getting stuff that pays a bit more often...

Also had a few Etsy sales, and am working on getting more stuff photographed and listed. Still on the craft kick, alternating knitting & needlepoint.

Added to the occasional flailing over TV, this is my life in a nutshell. :-)

Congrats on the sales and on the auditioning success! My year (or the dragon) seems to be good for everyone so far! :D

Thanks! It does seem to be panning out well for a lot of people. Here's hoping that continues!

It is a busy but good life from the sound of it. Hopefully all of these little unpaid jobs will lead to paid gigs in the very near future. :)

Great news about the auditions and all.

I was thinking of you recently, wondering whether you were singing opera at the restaurant these days.
